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.
View the “joke” in this video posted by Representative Gosar (R-AZ) below:
Just when you thought this impeachment hoax couldn’t get anymore ridiculous, the witness invited by Democrats is throwing cheap shots at the 13 year old son of @realDonaldTrump. Gross and shameful! pic.twitter.com/ugVZfVYDR9— Rep. Paul Gosar, DDS (@RepGosar) December 4, 2019
This resulted in a response from First Lady Melania Trump, who has not commented on anything related to impeachment. See her statement below:
A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics. Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it.— Melania Trump (@FLOTUS) December 4, 2019
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:
This is how my 7 year old apologizes. No remorse just escaping punishment https://t.co/sNxAJ1G5qx— Matt Schlapp (@mschlapp) December 4, 2019
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:
We need an emergency constitutional amendment forcing all broadcast networks to carry every single word of these hearings until the bitter end. Will vaporize the Democratic Party.— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) December 4, 2019
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.
