At the moment, you can barely go a day without seeing the use of satire, comedy sketches, memes and hashtags to expose the laugh-out-loud moments so far in Donald Trump's presidency (which has been going for just four days, by the way), but one thing is fore sure – his younger children should be off limits.

After all, none of us are responsible nor culpable for the actions of our parents, even if they want to implement a Muslim registry, defund planned parenthood and don't see anything wrong with using misogynistic language.

It has taken former First Daughter, Chelsea Clinton, to remind society of this crucial point in a post to Facebook.

On Sunday, she implored those who critique President Trump's administration to leave his youngest child, Barron, out of the conversation.

In the post, she wrote:

Commenters agreed with Clinton, thanking her for defending Trump's son and calling out those who use him as Twitter fodder, with one response reading:

'No child should be targeted because of who their parents are or what position they hold. He is a ten-year-old little boy. Show him the same respect that was shown to the Bush and Obama daughters and should have been shown to Amy Carter and Chelsea Clinton.'

Clinton's comments come amid the news that a Saturday Night Live writer has been suspended indefinitely after tweeting an 'insensitive' joke about the 10-year-old and school shootings.

After receiving a barrage of criticism from Trump supporters and an online petition signed by 80,000 people for her firing, writer Katie Rich tweeted an apology to anyone who was offended by her comments.

Despite his father's new position in office, Barron will continue his studies in New York until the end of the academic year before he moves to the White House with his mother, Melania.

He will be the first young boy in the White House since John F. Kennedy Jr., according to the New York Times.

Trump's youngest son drew support on Friday afternoon after the inauguration when he was caught on camera playing peek-a-boo with his nephew.

Let the kid be a kid.
