Thank impeachment top witness and Stanford law professor Pamela Karlan for revealing the true, malicious nature of the Democrats.
Her testimony didn’t do much else than bring into the light just how sick and twisted the Democrat party is: sick enough to drag a 13-year-old boy into a hearing against his father just to poke fun at his name.
It really doesn't get much lower than that, but it gets even worse.
Karlan's "joke" about Barron earned the laughter of Democrat Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, who can be seen and heard audibly chuckling in videos that captured the tell-tale moment.
Melania Trump has rightfully defended her family and blasted Karlan in respnse to her attacking her young son during the impeachment hearing.
Others have stuck by her side.
On the backlash, Market Watch said:
First lady Melania Trump, whose “Be Best” initiative advocates against bullying, tweeted that Karlan “should be ashamed.”
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
Other supporters of the president didn’t find it so funny, either. Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., told Karlan that her “little joke about Barron … makes you look mean” during the hearing.
Karlan apologized for her remark late Wednesday. “It was wrong of me to do that,’’ she said, according to the Associated Press. “I do regret it.”
Trump 2020 national press secretary Kayleigh McEnany released the following statement in response on Wednesday afternoon:
“Only in the minds of crazed liberals is it funny to drag a 13-year-old child into the impeachment nonsense,” she wrote. “Pamela Karlan thought she was being clever and going for laughs, but she instead reinforced for all Americans that Democrats have no boundaries when it comes to their hatred of everything related to President Trump. Hunter Biden is supposedly off-limits according to liberals, but a 13-year-old boy is fair game. Disgusting.”
McEnany added, “Every Democrat in Congress should immediately repudiate Pamela Karlan and call on her to personally apologize to the president and the first lady for mocking their son on national TV.”
Trump supporters like Kellyanne Conway also picked up the Hunter Biden argument.

The Trump family has been fiercely protective of the 13-year-old boy, such as slamming actor Peter Fonda for posting a tweet last year that read, “We should rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles.” Fonda later apologized for the “highly inappropriate and vulgar” tweet. In 2017, “Saturday Night Live” writer Katie Rich was suspended after tweeting that “Barron will be this country’s first homeschool shooter,” when Barron was just 10. She also apologized, and former first daughter Chelsea Clinton, a Democrat, also came to the boy’s defense, writing on Facebook that “Barron Trump deserves the chance every child does — to be a kid.”
Since facing the consequences of her gross words, Pamela Karlan has issued an apology that doubled as another hit on President Trump.
Read this from Fox Business and tell me if you think it's sincere:
“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 has done that’s wrong but I do regret having said that,” she said during testimony on Capitol Hill.
During her testimony earlier in the day, Karlan referred to President Trump’s Constitutional powers under Article 2, whereby she gave an example that while “the president can name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron.”
The comments sparked immediate backlash including from the First Lady.
Some media outlets -- which are often the target of President Trump's slings against "fake news" -- sided with the First Lady. Ruth Marcus, an editor with The Washington Post, tweeted that children should be left out of political dealings.
