First son Barron Trump garnered backlash after taking a photo of Marine One on the White House lawn (video below).

In the clip, 11-year-old Barron can be seen walking with his parents after getting off of Marine One. Suddenly, he turns around and points his phone at the helicopter and takes a photo.

The moment, which was shared on the Tennessee GOP's Facebook page after going viral, prompted criticism from some who said they felt "bad" for the president's youngest son. 

Others felt that Barron was simply being a kid and should be left alone.

"Look, he a young man trying to live in a world of wonderment,"  one Mad World News reader commented on the site's Facebook page. "We owe it to this young man even though his life is not normal to let him grow and think for himself. While I do not like Donald, I do like kids and his life is vastly different than those around his school mates. At least let us afford him normalcy of what we give to other children."

"I think all the news media should not be allowed to take pictures of anything the President and his family and Vice President and his family are doing," another wrote. "They attack everything, even innocent things like this. I am getting sick of reading it and seeing it on fb every time something is said or done. So ridiculous."

"He is a child," added another. "Why does the press dissect every move the boy takes. Are they really desperate for news to attack our President that they think attacking an 11 year old child is acceptable also. If he was there child I bet they would think differently."

Meanwhile, the president celebrated after a series of GOP wins that followed elections in Georgia and South Carolina. Trump tweeted in support of Republican Karen Handel, who defeated Democrat Jon Ossoff in Georgia's special congressional election.

"Congratulations to Karen Handel on her big win in Georgia 6th. Fantastic job, we are all very proud of you!" he tweeted, Daily Mail reported.

Trump also criticized the media in subsequent tweets.

"Well, the Special Elections are over and those that want to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN are 5 and O! All the Fake News, all the money spent = 0," he wrote.

"Huge win!" one Daily Mail reader commented after news of Handel's victory was reported. "Trump has led the way to a brand new America! People aren't falling for the forever fake news and all the Russia blame game. None of these liberal antics worked during the election and they sure aren't working now! MAGA!"
