Barron Trump Video Creator Issues Apology, Removes Controversial Footage

by at .

Melania Trump has clearly learned a lot from her husband.

The impending First Lady just used the threat of a lawsuit to get an everyday citizen to grovel at her feet, while also do her exact bidding.

In this case, however, we can't really hold anything against Melania.

She was just defending her son, after all. Allow us to explain...

Trump Family

Early last week, a YouTube user named James Hunter shared a seven-minute video of Barron Trump on the campaign trail with his father.

The footage featured the 10-year old acting restless in a chair, clapping without having his hands touch and exhibiting other signs on the spectrum of Autisim.

This is what Hunter wondered and alleged, that is.

The video then went mainstream after Donald Trump rival Rosie O'Donnell linked to it on her Twitter account, asking followers whether Barron was actually Autistic.

This created quite an uproar, although Rosie later tried to explain that her own daughter is Autistic and she was simply saying that Barron's diagnosis might help bring attention to this disease.

O'Donnell didn't hide her disdain for the President-Elect, but said she has no "ill will" toward members of his family.

But she still helped the video go viral, which prompted Melania Trump to say she would sue Hunter if he did not remove it from the Internet.

Via a statement through her lawyer, Melania also plainly said that Barron Trump is NOT Autistic.

On Tuesday, not only did Hunter obey Melania’s instruction that he take down the video, but he also offered a very public and heartfelt Mea Culpa.

He even put it on YouTube.

The video is titled “My Apology To Melania and Barron Trump" and it is comprised of the following words:

“On November 11, 2016, I posted a YouTube video titled: ‘Is Barron Trump Autistic #StopTheBullying.’

"n the video, I suggested Barron Trump might suffer from autism. This is in fact, 100 percent false.

"It was incredibly irresponsible of me to diagnose Barron Trump using a selection of misleading videos. Many of the videos I used showed Barron Trump behaving like any normal kid would at 3 a.m.

"I falsely correlated him trying to stay awake and occasionally doing quirky things, with him suffering from autism. This was incredibly foolish of me.”

You can watch the apologetic video here:

Hunter continues in it:

"My video was originally intended as an anti-bullying video, as I myself suffer from autism and wanted to educate people. Unfortunately, I completely misdiagnosed a person and ended up making a video that was false, defamatory and malicious.

"I retract every single statement I made in that horrendous video, and want to sincerely apologize to the Trump family, especially to Melania and Barron Trump.

"I can understand if you might not want to accept my apology, but please know I didn’t mean to hurt anyone with my video.

"I wish your family nothing but good luck, safety, and love, as you prepare to become the next First Family of the United States."

Sounds pretty darn sincere, doesn't it?

We're guessing no lawsuit will be filed and this will be the end of this scandal.

We can all now return to wondering what the heck Barron's father will Tweet next...
