Former NBC Universal senior executive Mike Sington continued his bizarre obsession with Barron Trump on his 18th birthday Wednesday.

Sington wrote in a now-deleted tweet that Barron is “fair game” since becoming a legal adult, according to Internet Archive. The NBC executive has previously described the former president’s son as “handsome” and has fawned over his height.

“Barron Trump turns 18 today. He’s fair game now,” Sington wrote Wednesday.

Sington told Newsweek that “fair game” meant it is fair for the press to criticize him.

“Someone pointed out to me ‘fair game’ could mean fair game to be harmed. I don’t wish physical harm on anyone, so I took it down. I listen to the comments and criticism I receive,” he said, according to Newsweek.

He wrote in one tweet from Aug. 28, 2020, that the then-14-year-old should be “gay” and “marry a guy from a s**t hole country,” according to screenshots.

He previously described Barron as “handsome” and declared “he should be a model” in a tweet from Nov. 27, 2019, highlighting his height and fashion sense.

“First Son could be a model!” he wrote of the then-13-year-old boy. “A very fashionable Barron towers over his father, who is 6’3.”

He also referred to Barron as “cool” in a tweet from June 17, 2017, and has posted photographs of the minor on several more occasions, according to screenshots. (RELATED: Fake Don Jr. Scolds Reporter For Making Fun Of Barron Trump)

Several social media users immediately slammed Sington for his bizarre tweet.

“Former Senior NBC Executive deletes shockingly inappropriate tweet about Barron Trump turning 18 saying ‘He’s fair game now.’ Mike Sington served as a director of operations for NBC Universal between 1986-2016,” author and influencer Oli London wrote.

“Creep Mike Sington DELETES tweet saying he wants to date Barron Trump!” Anthony Hughes said.

“But wait… It’s much worse than we thought… It appears NBC Exec Mike Sington has a very creepy obsession with Barron Trump going back years,” Libs of TikTok wrote.

The former president’s youngest son has been subject to mockery by liberal media figures and scholars. Former first lady Melania Trump said constitutional scholar Pamela Karlan “should be ashamed” of herself after she made a joke about him during a December 2019 hearing before the House Judiciary Committee.
