Is Barron Trump the new Presidential trendsetter? Several publications are calling President Trump’s youngest child a fashion icon after reporting that a $30 J.Crew shirt the 11-year-old wore the other day completely sold out.
“Barron Trump Gets J. Crew Shirt Sold Out WITHIN HOURS,” reads a headline on former Alaska governor Sarah Palin’s website. That’s not true. The shirt has been off the market for some time.
Crew told Business Insider that its “The Expert” t-shirt is from its Spring 2015 collection. It was not re-released this year at all, and would have “sold out” long before the president’s son wore the shirt.
In fairness, no one in the Trump family is to blame for the phony story, as far as we know.
But consider this little bit of media hyperbole officially debunked.
