Rosie O'Donnell recently shared a YouTube video of Barron Trump, son of President-elect Donal Trump, and speculated that the First son may have autism. The comedian who is openly not fond of Donald Trump says that she meant to educate the public about autism and not bully the boy by posting her thoughts on her social media.

Now O'Donnell shares that in light with her speculations of Barron Trump, her own 3-year old daughter was recently diagnosed with autism. She shared on her website that her daughter, Dakota, was diagnosed with high-functioning autism (HFA) in September. O'Donnell added that she had been learning more about the developmental disorder and claims that in her search for more knowledge, her speculations about Barron Trump would help bring more attention for autism.

Yahoo notes that the video, in particular, had an anti-bullying and informative approach as the First son was turned into an internet meme for looking sleepy during Donald Trump's victory speech. O'Donnell was heavily criticized by fans and netizens alike with some stating she went too far.

The YouTube video uploader named James Hunter defended the video saying his intention was to stop people from throwing negative words towards Barron. It was revealed that Hunter had autism as well recently said that he wanted social media to stop bullying the younger Trump and added that he never thought it would get so much attention online after it went viral.

 However, this did not dissuade Melania Trump from threatening the uploader with a lawsuit, according to Inquisitr. The First Lady has also stated that Barron Trump does not have autism and if he were, there wasn't any shame for having the developmental disorder. Melania Trump did not plan to sue O'Donnell but asked for the video to be taken down with a formal apology.
