Liberal academic Pam Karlan is probably the worst witness Democrats have called to testify yet.
Not only is her testimony a load of rubbish, but she also stooped so low as to attack President Trump’s youngest son, 13-year-old Barron during the hearing.
But, Rep. Gaetz was there to defend the Trump family. Gaetz stepped to the plate to call out Karlan’s “little joke out of referencing Barron Trump,” telling her candidly,
“That does not lend credibility to your argument, it makes you look mean. It makes you look like you’re attacking someone’s family, the minor child of the president of the United States.”

The Hill via MSN has more to say about Gaetz's condemnation of Karlan's cheap shot at Barron Trump earlier:
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) clashed with law professor Pamela Karlan during Wednesday's House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearing, pressing her on her past donations to Democratic candidates and excoriating her for invoking 13-year-old Barron Trump earlier in her testimony.
"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," Gaetz said. "It makes you look mean."
Karlan earlier in the hearing told lawmakers that the Constitution does not grant lawmakers the power to bestow nobility, quipping that Trump could name his son Barron but could not make him a baron.
Gaetz's line of questioning reflected a concerted effort by President Trump's allies to paint Karlan and other Democratic witnesses as biased. The congressman seized on donations the professor made to Democratic candidates and highlighted her past comments that he portrayed as condescending to conservatives.
Karlan confirmed that she donated $1,000 to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), $1,200 to former President Obama and $2,000 to Hillary Clinton, who ran against Trump in 2016.
The Washington Examiner also said:
Rep. Matt Gaetz tore into impeachment witness Pamela Karlan after she took a shot at President Trump by referencing his 13-year-old son Barron.
"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," the Florida Republican told the Stanford law professor during Wednesday's House Judiciary impeachment hearings. "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 made an earlier attempt at humor when she said the president is not a king who could appoint his son to be a baron.
