Making an assumption is one thing, but, making a full on suggestion is a whole different ball game. Controversial queen herself Rosie O’ Donnell found out the hard way of how different the two are after she took to the internet, perhaps, to share a video suggesting that Barron Trump is autistic.

Rosie, almost instantly sparked backlash among angry parents and the like who felt she was insensitive to come after the youngest Trump.
‘Rosie, as a parent of a child with autism – I am extremely insulted. This wasn’t meant to help raise awareness. Just plain cruel,’ said one.
‘I am the mom of an 11 yr old with ASD and I am in tears that Rosie did this!! Shame on her!!’
‘Is Rosie O’Donnell really going after Barron Trump? That’s low even for her. Attacking children bc you don’t like their parent (s) is wrong.

The former talk show host. Took to her. Website to defend the suggestion that Barron is autistic.
‘Here is how it went down. My 3.5 yr old daughter Dakota was diagnosed in September with HFA – high functioning autism. I have been immersed in that world/reality since. learning – reading – asking questions, It’s all autism – all the time for the newly diagnosed as we try to grab onto anything to keep us standing. The knowledge we r not alone, there r others living this too.
‘When I saw the anti bullying video that mentioned Barron it spoke to the symptoms many ASD kids have it was educational and informational. These symptoms so many do not understand– I thought – how amazing IF it is true.
‘IF it is true – I tweeted from my heart. It would help so much with the autism epidemic. 1 in 55 kids is an epidemic. Donald and I agree on that and not much else.
‘I feel he is a clear and present danger but this autism subject had nothing to do with Donald. Though i admithe does trigger me in all ways.
‘I have no ill will for his children –or any children –and if u knew anything about me –u would know that. Donald does not have the power to change the facts to re write history so speak true – stand tall. THE WORLD IS WATCHING.
‘For those who felt me a horror what can i say humans we try our very best and fail often. Peace out as we try to save democracy from this madman who thinks OUR country is his.’
