Unlikely allies: Chelsea Clinton defends Barron Trump from creepy ex-NBC producer

Chelsea Clinton joined the vitriolic ladies of “The View” on Friday and defended birthday boy, Barron Trump, saying “the media should leave him alone.”

Clinton’s comments come after former NBC Universal senior executive Mike Sington — a self-described “lifestyle expert” — hopped on X and declared that Barron is now an adult, and therefore “fair game” for, presumably, every ugly insult and conjured hit piece the left can drum up.

Co-host Ana Navarro noted that, during her turn as a teenage First Daughter, “it wasn’t all peaches and cream” for Chelsea Clinton.

“You got a lot of rough criticism,” she said before asking how she felt about Sington’s remark.

“I think he’s a private citizen,” Clinton replied. “I feel so strongly that if you are a private citizen, you have an unimpeachable right to privacy, and I think the media should leave him alone.”

Sington, after being slammed and shamed on X, deleted his post.

In a statement to Newsweek, he explained, “I posted he was ‘fair game’ now, meaning, as an adult, he’s ‘fair game’ for criticism from the press.”

“Someone pointed out to me ‘fair game’ could mean fair game to be harmed,” he said — because why would a lifestyle expert be familiar with that particular idiom?

“I don’t wish physical harm on anyone, so I took it down,” Sington said. “I listen to the comments and criticism I receive.”

Trump’s other children, on the other hand, are a different story.

Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric, Clinton said, gave up their privacy rights when they joined their father’s campaign.

“I think that his older children, who served in the administration, who were campaign surrogates,” are fair game, Clinton said.

“It’s a totally different conversation,” she argued.

In a surprising moment of clarity, co-host Sunny Hostin pointed out that, at 18, a person is “an adult child.”

“Their frontal lobes aren’t fully developed until 25,” she said.

Which makes one wonder why she’s okay with giving 11-year-olds life-altering drugs to irrevocably change their bodies.

In a June 2023 segment about the awesomeness of Drag Queen story hours and the super-awful conservatives who were passing laws prohibiting “gender-affirming care,” Hostin revealed that she first got her period at age 11.

“Imagine being in the wrong body, imagine being born into a girl’s body when you are a boy, and you are experiencing that, and you could have blockers, you could have had that and have avoided that experience,” she said at the time.

Clinton, meanwhile, wasted no more truths on the Trumps and warned Americans to believe the former president when he calls for a “bloodbath” — or, at the very least, believe that Trump’s supporters are too stupid to understand that he didn’t mean the literal carnage of slaughtered humans.

When Trump, in 2016, “told the Second Amendment people to do something” about Mama Hillary, he also “attempted to qualify” the statement, she explained.

“But is that really what his supporters heard?” she asked.

Donald Trump, she cautioned, “is a master at the dog whistle around gender and race.”

“We need to take him literally and seriously,” Clinton said. “He shows us who he is every day.”
