The press praised to the skies the family of former US President Barack Obama. Every moment of the Obama family was headlined with words like ‘wow’, ‘so cute’, ‘adorable’ – you know, the words that pulls the string of our hearts.
Obama’s beautiful daughters Malia and Sasha were the centre of the media’s focus when it came to presenting the world’s most powerful family for the last eight years under a very soft, normal light.
It is, therefore, surprising that nearly every major media house in the West missed the cute moment that had as its star Donald Trump’s son Barron.
Barron Trump, who is a 10-year-old handsome boy, was accompanying his father and the rest of the Trump family at the Capitol immediately after his father’s inauguration as the 45th US President.
While President Trump was signing his first official order – nominating the Cabinet – Barron is drawn to his sister Ivanka Trump’s 10-month-old baby Theodore.
A video shows Barron playing a quick peek-a-boo with his nephew, while Ivanka, who holds Theodore in her arms. And, Theodore is clearly happy.
It was a very cute moment captured by the camera but what is surprising is that it was not reported by most of the media houses who do not like Donald Trump – and that includes every media house in the US except the likes of Fox News.
Perhaps this is also an example of what the Trump family might be facing in the next four years. A large number of media lenses will highlight any wrong move they make but will not show the beautiful moments of the family.
