People Are Saying That Barron Trump Has Been Replaced

Spoiler alert - he definitely hasn't been.

Posted on

Eleven-year-old Barron Trump, the youngest of Trump's children, did not attend his father's State of the Union last night. A twelve-year-old kid named Preston Sharp, however, famed for placing flowers and flags over the graves of thousands of veterans, did.

Preston, who sat beside Melania and looks a bit like Barron, confused some viewers who expected to see Trump's son in his place.

Is it just me or is that not Barron Trump? #SOTU

In fact, some people said outright that Barron had been recast.

It looks like most of the Tweets are jokes, though.

But some of the jokes were aimed at the children, who Chelsea Clinton then defended.

Talk of a Trump replacement might seem familiar. Just a few months ago, speculation about Melania Trump being replaced by a double abounded on Twitter.

May your 2018 be as fake as Melania’s body double

Despite any other issues in the White House, though, these suspicions are unfounded. While on this occasion, Barron really wasn't there, it's safe to say that all members of the Trump household still exist in their original forms.
