Liberal Professor Invokes 13-Year-Old Barron Trump’s Name During House Judiciary Hearing

Professor Pamela S. Karlan was responding to a question by Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) when she said, “I’ll just give you one example that shows you a difference between him [Trump] 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 cannot make him a Baron.” This statement sent shockwaves through the nation because the majority of people believe that minor children of the president, no matter the officeholder should be off-limits.

This resulted in a response from First Lady Melania Trump, who has not commented on anything related to impeachment. See her statement below: 

She was challenged by Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz when he stated, “When you invoke the President’s son’s name here when you try and make a little joke out of referencing Barron Trump, that does not lend credibility to your argument. It makes you look mean. It makes you look like you’re attacking someone’s family.” Professor Karlan proved herself to be a left-wing partisan because she admitted to donating thousands of dollars to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Elizabeth Warren. Gaetz also asked each of the witnesses to raise their hands if they have personal knowledge of a material fact of the Schiff report. None of them rose their hand. View the entire encounter below: 

She later apologized saying, “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 the things that he’s done that’s wrong, but I do regret having said that.” See her apologize below: 

Many on the right believe that these hearings will help President Trump and the Republican Party, including Ann Coulter. She tweeted that she wants an emergency constitutional amendment to force media networks to broadcast these hearings. See her commentary below:  

These hearings are not over because according to Chad Pergram who covers Congress for Fox News, under the provisions of the House impeachment resolution adopted earlier this fall, the Judiciary Committee can announce an additional hearing or a markup within 24 hours. So, this doesn’t necessarily mean that impeachment hearings/markups are done this week.
