First Lady Responds to Pamela Karlan Who Joked About Barron Trump During Her Testimony


First Lady Melania Trump hit back at constitutional scholar Pamela Karlan after she referenced her son Barron Trump during the House Judiciary Committee’s impeachment hearing.

“A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics,” Trump tweeted. “Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it.”

While testifying, Karlan who is a professor at Stanford Law School, tried to make a joke about the president’s 13-year-old son.

“I’ll just give you one example that shows you the difference between him and a king, which is, 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,” she said.

Many prominent conservative figures came to the defense of the First Lady’s son at Karlan’s joke fell flat, including Matt Gaetz who told the law professor her comments about Trump’s youngest son makes her “look mean.”

“Now let me also suggest that when you invoke the president’s son’s name here. When you try to make a little joke out of referencing Barron Trump. That does not lend credibility to your argument,” he said. “It makes you look mean. It makes it look like you’re attacking someone’s family, the minor child of the president of the United States.”

Karlan offered an apology for the remarks she made about Barron during her testimony on Wednesday afternoon.

“I want to apologize for what I said earlier about the president’s son. It was wrong of me to do that. I wish the president would apologize obviously for some of the things he’s done that’s wrong, but I do regret having said that,” she said.

    Pammela Karrlan is a loser educated beyond her intelligence.

    Karen should have left Trump’s son out of it; he is only thirteen and has had nothing to do with his parents’ actions. I’m afraid I would have to agree with the First Lady Millenium’s defense of her son even though I am a leftist Bernie Sanders supporter. Most of the Democrats in charge of the impeachment proceedings are not the progressive leftists but the “Deep State” so-called centrists (read: Republican Lite) like Schumer, Pelosi, et al.

    Interestingly enough, I have less sympathy for Truman’s 1950 defense of his daughter, Margaret, when a commentator who was simply doing his job, made a critical evaluation of Margaret’s singing when she was pursuing a television career. This critic was simply doing his job as a drama critic in his evaluation of Margaret. He did not want to look like he was giving favoritism to Margaret either merely because her father was President. By coincidence, this letter and outburst occurred right after the 1950 mid-term elections increased the Republicans’ margins in both chambers, though still not quite enough to give them an absolute majority (that would have to wait for another two years). It also occurred a day or two after an unsuccessful assassination attempt on Truman (Nov. 1, 1950).

    Another reason why I had less sympathy for Margaret than I do for Baron was that Truman plunged this country into its first Vietnam-like quagmire on the Korean Peninsula. When two grieving parents wrote an angry letter to President Truman shortly after Truman’s outburst against the drama critic (some people suggest that Truman may have been taking a prescribed drug that had a side effect of causing him to lose control of his temper), they pointed out that while daughter Margaret got to stay home, using her gender to exempt herself from the draft and to pursue a television career, their son, in contrast, died in a war of Truman’s making. They told him the next time he got drunk and played poker with his buddies, he could display the medals of their son along with those of other young soldiers who lost their lives on that peninsula so that Truman could brag about how many American boys he murdered in Korea. They closed their letter by saying that they only regretted that Truman’s pampered daughter did not suffer the same fate as their far less fortunate son.

    Perhaps, the grieving parents went overboard in their angry reply to Truman, but at least they had more to be legitimately angry about than this constitutional scholar did who made the snide remark about Trump’s son.

    Who exactly defines what a “constitutional scholar” is? I’m sick and tired of these people who think that they are morally and intellectually superior to us “deplorables”! All our universities have become are cesspools full of overpaid, sycophants!

    The leftists have not gained any traction attacking DJT so now they are forced to attack the most elegant FLOTUS since Jackie Kennedy and a young boy. You are finally seeing the depths to which they will stoop to gain control and power, and I suspect it’s gonna get worse!

  5. Steve Allen

    Another Leftest Democratic operative. Have these people no decency? How are they going to behave when the president is reelected???

    1. Charles Huff

      Tears will flow for the LEFT. Remember nearly 30 vowed to leave the Country if 2016 elected Donald Trump.
      Well they stayed! Kinda liked how he “Made America Strong 💪🏿 and nearing Great In 3 years! 2020 will Flush the Toilet cause the Left has turned the Swamp into a SEWAR ! Smart Americans there VOTES Will Flush out those who are not needed in Congress.

  6. Randy Pace

    Anyone who thought this process was anything other than a politically motivated hatchet job is part of the problem in Washington. Karlan’s comments regarding the President’s son are not the least bit surprising. This is who these people truly are, academia and the left are far worse than hypocrites and liars. This woman will get a pass simply because the people running the media and this circus agree with her. What a complete shame.

    Prof. Karla is lunatic trash.
