First lady Melania Trump tore into the Democrat expert witness Stanford Law School professor Pamela Karlan at the House Judiciary Committee hearing who used her teen son Barron’s name to make a point about the president.
“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.”

Stanford Law School professor Pamela Karlan testified that “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.”

Her comments drew quick rebukes from the Trump campaign and other GOP lawmakers.
Now Democrats on Twitter are trying to justify or dismiss Karlan’s comments:
Yes, the Republicans were well known for their respectful treatment of Chelsea Clinton and Sasha and Malia Obama. 🙄

It is apparently child abuse to point out that Donald Trump is not a king.
After all the garbage the right rained down on Chelsea Clinton when she was a minor and then Sasha and Malia Obama, this is where they drawn the line for decency, apparently?

Lmao THIS is what people are complaining about? Have y’all seen what republicans said about Amy Carter? Or Chelsea Clinton? And ESPECIALLY Sasha and Malia Obama? This isn’t even remotely mean or an insult 💀 https://t.co/Hz2RgUvjCE

Melania trump didn’t think about Sasha or Malia Obama when she was on networks spreading a hateful birther lie about their father Barack Obama and putting the entire family in mortal danger
She still has not apologized for her role in the racist birther lie..

If you think this woman mentioning Barron is wrong, you should have a chat with Chelsea Clinton. Or Sasha and Malia Obama for that matter.
— Kanova (@kanova) December 4, 2019
Spare me. She made a non-derogatory reference to him and then fully apologized for mentioning his name.
Maybe you should ask Chelsea Clinton and Sasha and Malia Obama what it really means to be picked on. Folks have left your son alone, my god you are out of touch.

But. What rock have you been living under? I am old enough to remember GOP disparaging and vicious statements about: Chelsea Clinton, Sasha and Malia Obama. And Lets not forget Amy Carter. Do your job or stop talking. #ChildrenInCages pic.twitter.com/DehVf499cb

– Amy Carter
– Chelsea Clinton
– Malia Obama
– Sasha Obama
Exactly ZERO of these young women were “off limits” to the grotesquery that is Junior’s beloved conservative media.

Yet it’s ok for Trump to put a target on Malia Obama’s back when she is a college student. Does Melanoma know who she is married to?

There was no attack. His name was mentioned. That’s it. The phony, fake outrage from Republicans over this is keeping in line with Republicans being fake and phony and trying desperately to change the topic. If you want to talk about it, try asking Chelsea Clinton & Malia Obama.
