WASHINGTON, DC-While the Trump family has provided America with a stunning and personal insight into the daily life of the first family like no first family before them, some in the media have used the opportunity to criticize them, some even mock them and their children.
Today, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer reminded the global news media that historically, children and grandchildren of Presidents have been allowed to grow up free of the intense and often scrutinous media spotlight that is always on the first family
“It is a longstanding tradition that the children of Presidents are afforded the opportunity to grow up outside of the political spotlight. The White House fully expects this tradition to continue. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.”
In less than his first week in office, President Donald Trump and his family have given America a behind the scenes tour of not only the first family, but the White House, Washington, DC and the American political process unrivaled by an of his predecessors.
It has been an insight appreciated by most Americans.

Some intimate White House moments were shared with the public, normally never shared outside the walls of the White House. How cool is it to go have pancakes at Grandpa’s house…The White House?

The Trump family has also let America in on the more mundane aspects of life in the White House, such as having to watch grandpa do stuff that is pretty darn exciting, but, really, grandpa? Enough with the pen and the cameras already. This great moment of young Tristan Trump is a photo that will be remembered for a very long time. Little did he know at the time, he upstaged the President of the United States in this photo.

But for all the good, there has been too much bad. Some Trump opponents have shown no mercy when it comes to the children of the first family. They say one person can spoil a good thing for the rest of us, but we are confident the Trump family will be stronger than the hate that boils over from America’s left and at least one news organization absolutely supports the Trump family’s position on the media and the first family’s children.
The media should respect the first family’s children as they have done for all presidents prior to Trump.
