Barron Trump is cute

Life isn’t easy for the ten-year-old son of the President-elect. Barron Trump, the youngest son of Donald and Melania Trump, faces a bombardment of memes about his entire family, a general dislike from his $45,000-per-year private school, and a nightly caviar moisturizing treatment.

According to The Huffington Post, Barron only uses the best: his mother’s Caviar Complex C6 moisturizer. “I put it on him from head to toe,” revealed Melania to ABC News.

And when it comes to memes, anyone on social media could talk about the countless ones revolving around Barron’s parents. From cheetos to plagiarism, jokes about his parents are bound to reach the ten-year-old. Any child of a celebrity or public figure would agree that it be hard to deal with having family members who are constantly scrutinized.

Because of his father’s position, Barron’s New York private school expressed their disapproval of his continued education there. Between the presence of the Secret Service and the threat of attempted kidnappings, “some parents are freaking out and worked up about security and what the school is going to do,” a school board member told Vanity Fair.

Not only does Barron face memes and caviar moisturizer, but he may not be able to attend his private school (which costs as much as tuition to Tufts University). “Never throughout history has a man who lived a life of ease left a name worth remembering,” said Theodore Roosevelt. Because of the difficulties he faces, and possibly with a small loan of a million dollars, Barron Trump might leave a name we will all remember.
