The minor children of public figures such as 10 year old Barron Trump are off limits. Period. I think that most sane people would agree that attacking the first child because you disagree with the political beliefs of his parents is beyond the bounds of common decency. Thus, NBC and Saturday Night Live are to be congratulated for their swift suspension of a staff writer for her tasteless Tweet about the Trump child. Let's hope it stops there.
