Melania Trump spoke out about the anger she feels when the media publishes inaccurate stories about her son, Barron.
The first ladys comments came during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, the second part of which aired Thursday night.
“Even your young son has been brought into this at times,” said Hannity, referring to the medias propensity for “fake news” about the Trump family and administration. “That doesnt — that would make me angry. Does that make you angry?” (RELATED: MELANIA OPENS UP ABOUT RAISING BARRON, ANTI-BULLYING CAMPAIGN: SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO FIGHT BACK)
“It does make me angry,” said Melania. “Because children should be off limits, and I protect him and I want to give him … normal life as possible. This is not normal life. But I like to protect him and give him the childhood that he deserves.”

“Hes very happy,” said the first lady, responding to Hannitys comments about Barron being a “respectful, happy kid.” “Hes very happy. Hes strong, hes tough. Hes enjoying life in Washington.”
When asked if he was more like the president, the “outward fighter,” or his mother, Melania said he has “both qualities.”
“He has a soft, beautiful heart, but hes a fighter too, and hes very strong,” she said.
