“Barron’s Fine.”

“President Trump spoke on his son Barron’s positive COVID-19 test before departing the White House en route to Des Moines, IA. First Lady Melania Trump revealed Wednesday that her only son with President Trump, Barron Trump, tested positive for the novel coronavirus after the first couple was diagnosed but said he experienced no symptoms and has since tested negative.”

And that duly noted, it’s now my turn to weigh in.

Fortunately, “all’s well that ends well”, doth sum up the first family’s encounter with the sickening, oft deadly Corona-V.

Even so, we need to further consider our video vignette. The Hill’s wordless, visual op-ed doth speak volumes. Indeed, candidate Trump’s silence drowns out both the madding crowd’s mindless, “U – S – A” chants and Marine One’s / Air Force One’s idling engines.

If nothing else, the clip’s creator has showcased daddy Donny’s dispassionate demeanor. Throughout the entire two minute run time, I found myself sitting at the edge of my seat, fully expecting the president (in title only) to flesh out his “Barron’s Fine” cursory remark.

Perhaps after the cutaway from the White House to the tarmac scene? Yes? No?

Regrettably, but not unexpectedly, No was the outcome.

My God, for a politician (in every negative sense of that word) who’s never at a loss for words, to not offer up a bit more parental concern? Maybe toss in a few of his trade mark superlatives? Perhaps brag about the Trump Klan’s genetic superiority?

This comment left on the YouTube site could very well sum it up best:

“Poor Baron [sic]. All the money in the world can’t make up for what he has to endure.”

In closing, Barron is not only fortunate enough to be afforded the best medical care anywhere on the planet, but is also damned lucky to, at least, have a mother who cares about his well-being.

Stay well wishes to mother and son.

Get well wishes, too, to the inattentive (in title only) father.
