Trump sends Left into meltdown mode over his plans on son Barron’s graduation day


Former President Donald Trump sent his critics into a meltdown when they learned he will be attending a Republican event in Minnesota on May 17 – the same day his son Barron is graduating high school.

Never mind that Barron’s graduation ceremony takes place in the morning in Florida and the former president owns a private plane that can easily get him to the Minnesota Republican Party’s annual Lincoln Reagan Dinner in plenty of time. Critics lambasted the 2024 presumptive GOP nominee for having another event the same day in light of the debate that went on before he was sure he could attend the graduation due to his ongoing trial in New York City.

“The former president had complained on the first day of the trial how he may be barred from seeing 18-year-old Barron finish high school – and last week, a judge finally agreed to pause it for a day in mid-May,” Daily Mail reported, referring to Justice Juan Merchan. “But he’s now announced he’s attending a dinner the same day all the way in Minnesota – some 1,700 miles away from Barron’s school in Palm Beach, Florida.”

“He’s a great student and he’s very proud of the fact he did so well and was looking forward for years to having his graduation with his mother and father there, and it looks like the judge isn’t gong to allow me to escape this scam, it’s a scam trial,” Trump had said at the beginning of the so-called hush money trial.

But Merchan had eventually decided to pause the proceedings, saying, “I don’t think May 17 is a problem.”

But Trump’s now-scheduled event in Minnesota seems to have surprised some, notably his detractors and the leftist media that is claiming the former president is “ditching” the graduation for the dinner.

“Trump, 77, should have time to attend both events May 17 – with Barron’s graduation starting at 10 am, and the dinner expected in the evening. His participation in the Minnesota event was only announced after he knew he’d be excused from court,” Daily Mail noted.

“Trump made a big deal about the prospect of missing his son’s graduation, and only now is the public learning that he plans to double-book and be the headline speaker at the Republican Party of Minnesota’s Lincoln Reagan Dinner on the same day. However, Judge Merchan will likely not say much about the dinner since Trump has the right to campaign for president,” a trial attorney, Tray Gober, told Newsweek.

“Barron’s graduation ceremony is taking place in the morning while the dinner does not begin until late afternoon, so Trump is surely planning on attending both events. It would not be practical for Judge Merchan to try squeezing in a partial court date after Barron’s graduation, so it’s inconsequential to the court if Trump attends this dinner,” he added.

Minnesota GOP chair David Hann expressed his excitement over Trump’s planned appearance.

“We are thrilled to welcome President Trump back to Minnesota to headline our Lincoln Reagan dinner, an annual tradition that reminds us of the roots of our Party and the leaders who have been most impactful in promoting our American values. I can think of no one more fitting to join us this year than President Trump,” he said in a statement.

Meanwhile, on social media, Trump’s critics were sure that 18-year-old Barron was going to be distraught that his father would not be spending every hour of the day with him after graduation.
