Barron Trump's T-Shirt Becomes Hot Conversation Topic, Stirs Admiration And Outrage Online

Social media proves that there are a great many people who are completely fascinated by nothing. That fact has been made painfully apparent again after a storm of controversy brewed over yet another seemingly insignificant thing: Barron Trump's shirt. The president's youngest son finally moved with his mother, First Lady Melania Trump, into the White House and it seems that all anyone could talk about was the tween's t-shirt.

President Donald Trump's 11-year-old son stepped onto the White House South lawn in a J.Crew t-shirt. The grey shirt with a blue stripe on the collar and sleeves reads 'The Expert', and retails for $29.50. Naturally, the internet went nuts over such a controversial choice of apparel.

At first, it would seem that Barron was an unintended trendsetter. Within hours of him wearing the t-shirt in public, J.Crew reports that they completely sold out. The shirt was from their 2015 spring collection and never got that much attention before.

If you thought the fan frenzy that sent people racing to J.Crew was a bit overboard, that's nothing compared to the outrage over the message on Barron's shirt. After all, the sheer nerve of a Trump having the audacity to wear a t-shirt with such an arrogant message cannot go without considering at least one march on Washington in protest.

Jodi Beggs, a behavioral economist, was the first to unleash the vitriol. "Barron Trump is wearing a shirt that reads "The Expert" and I just threw up in my mouth a little."

Beggs actually was slammed by her followers on Twitter, who pointed out that he's just a kid and it was just a t-shirt.

"Hey Twitter, maybe, just maybe, I'm judging the people that bought him this item and let him wear it in a very public appearance," she said.

Of course, some people on Twitter had to go low in attacking the woman who had the nerve to attack the T-shirt of the president's son.

"Triggered much by little boys? Get back to your lectern you pontificating shill," responded one Twitter user to Beggs.

And, of course, what would a good Twitter argument over someone in President Trump's family be without someone dragging former President Barack Obama into it? "Where is your tweet judging the parents of the Obama daughter who smoked weed and flashed her ass in public?"

Donald Trump Jr. even jumped into the fray in defense of his youngest brother. "As a parent myself, I hope your kids don't have to deal with daily hate from elitist academics at 11 or any other age," he tweeted.

Of course, where would online arguments be without conspiracy theorists? Some believe that Barron is expertly trolling his own father. President Trump bragged during a presidential debate, "I have a son, he's 10 years old. He is so good with these computers. It's unbelievable.... The security aspect of cyber is very, very tough."

"Is my man Barron Trump (my legit favorite Trump) low key trolling his dad w this tee shirt? #TheExpert," tweeted one person.

It’s just too bad that all these expert social media meaning decipherers aren’t working on something a little more important than a t-shirt slogan; they should put their talents toward more important matters, like the Russia investigation. Maybe they could read something into Vladimir Putin’s choice of ties.
