This is just ridiculous.
Joshua Trump, an 11-year-old boy from Wilmington, Delaware, is getting a LOT of attention after news broke of his intended name change.

“They curse at him, they call him an idiot, they call him stupid,” she told WPVI.
Megan, who isn’t related to the president, said that her son has been getting bullied ever since Donald Trump first began campaigning.
“I pulled him out of school and home-schooled him for a year,” said Bobby Berto, Joshua’s father.
WHY are young kids acting this way? BECAUSE OF THEIR HATEFUL PARENTS. Because of what they’re hearing at home. Because they’ve been told he last name “Trump” is something to be ashamed of.
The level of HATE in this country makes me absolutely nauseous.
Even the comments on the original story are gross:
That’s why it’s hard to find anyone still using Adolph as their first name or Hitler as their last name.

You know… because Trump is basically Hitler.
Feel badly for the unfortunate kid, but I’m actually encouraged so many young people are aware of how bad Trump is.

This guy is “encouraged” by this, folks.
I’m an old man. But, if my last name were Trump, I’d change it.
At one point I had a full, bushy beard. That had to go when Duck Dynasty became a hit TV show, LOL.

It’s sad someone can get this old and still stay this stupid.
Orange buffoon is the epitome of everything wrong with this country, kid was smart with his decision. Even if I WAS related to the real tRump, I would change my name.

Guess our Flotus (and POTUS) need to be a little more involved in setting a good example, but I don’t really care, do you? #BeBest

I feel bad for the kid, but at this point anyone with that name should change it

Is anyone surprised this kid is getting bullied? I’m certainly not.
