not far behind. While 23-year-old Tiffany Trump is not often seen, it's 10-year-old Barron Trump that is kept out of the spotlight most often. Questions have been raised about the president-elect's youngest son, which became a major story over the Thanksgiving Day holiday.

"Rosie O`Donnell really is a 'Fat disgusting Pig' to go after a 10 yr old child," one Twitter user wrote. Another labeled her a "vile bully" and openly asked why she hasn't moved out of the country.
