Rosie O’Donnell sparked an uproar on Twitter by sharing a video that speculates about President-elect Donald Trump’s 10-year-old son, Barron, possibly being autistic.

“Barron Trump Autistic?” she asked.

“[I]f so, what an amazing opportunity to bring attention to the AUTISM epidemic,” the tweet read.

The actress/comedian, who very publicly feuded with Trump starting in 2006, was immediately criticized for bringing up the subject.


She responded by saying the YouTube video was not her creation, but that it “resonated” with her. O’Donnell also emphasized that there is “no shame at all” in having a child with autism.


The video she shared pointed out some of Barron’s mannerisms during his father’s victory speech and at the RNC, calling them similar to children who are on the autism spectrum.

The clip has been watched more than 500,000 times.

O’Donnell was criticized in February after she joked at a comedy show that she’d rather have “autistic triplets” than her hard-to-manage teenagers.

Earlier this week, Trump said his wife, Melania, and Barron would live at Trump Tower until the school year is over.
