Republican clubs on colleges campuses these days are having the devil of a time figuring out what to do about Donald Trump. Harvard College’s Republican Club, for one, won’t endorse Trump; same at Penn State (http://www.politico.com/story/2016/08/trump-college-republicans-fights-227412).
Trump has five children. The youngest is Barron Trump, who is ten.
Barron spends much of his time with his mother, Melania, but he also golfs with his father. Melania says that Barron is very similar to her husband: “He is a very strong-minded boy, independent and opinionated and knows exactly what he wants. Sometimes I call him Little Donald.” http://heavy.com/news/2016/07/barron-trump-age-donald-melania-trump-son-youngest-kids-children-who-is-bio/.
This led your solitary reporter to make a special trip to Trump Tower, where Barron lives, for an exclusive interview.
After the solitary reporter figured out that Melania is right about Barron’s sense of himself, he skillfully led Barron into a discussion of his real feelings about his larger than life dad.
“I really like all the privileges I have, but I also know how to push his buttons,” Barron said, speaking of his seventy-year old father.
“And because I can go to any college I want, I’ve decided to go to Harvard just to poke Dad in the nose, because Harvard students don’t like him — but I do — hey, come to think of it, maybe I could even change their minds.”
Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, hustled Barron out of the room and told him he has to stay in Trump Tower for the rest of the campaign and not talk with any reporters.
Harvard’s president, Drew Gilpin Faust, told associate solitary reporter John Jones that Harvard will be glad to consider Barron’s application during Barron’s senior year in high school. She also said that Harvard made a big mistake in not inviting President Reagan to participate in Harvard’s 350th anniversary in 1886. “Political correctness can lead us astray,” she said.
