First Lady To Impeachment Witness Pamela Karlan: ‘You should be ashamed.’
First Lady Melania Trump defended her son Barron Wednesday on Twitter, telling anti-Trump Stanford Law School Professor Pamela Karlan that children should never be dragged into politics.
Karlan is a liberal Democrat with a disdain for President Trump. She invoked the president’s youngest child into a terrible joke during the House Judiciary impeachment hearing. She said, “contrary to what President Trump has said, Article 2 [of the Constitution] does not give him the power to do anything he wants. The Constitution says there can be no titles of nobility, so while the president can name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron.”
Karlan’s comments drew severe criticism from across the country, as well as from Democrats and Republicans.
First Lady Melania Trump made an official response to Karlan on Twitter in defense of her 13 year old son.
“A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics,” said the First Lady. “Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it.”
