One of the Dems’ star witnesses, Pamela Karlan, invoked Barron Trump’s name during Wednesday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing in an attempt to attack President Trump, drawing immediate criticisms from Republicans.
Stanford Law School professor Pamela Karlan unexpectedly mentioned Trump’s 13-year-old son Barron during today’s impeachment hearing in an effort to explain the difference between Trump’s position as president and that of a king.
“Kings could do no wrong because the king’s word was law. Contrary to what President Trump has said, Article Two does not give him the power to do anything he wants. I will give you one example that shows the difference between him and a king, which is, the Constitution says there can be no titles of nobility. While the president can name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron.”

So Hunter Biden is off limits, but 13 year old Barron Trump is not?
This gets more unreal by the minute!

How vile of a person do you have to be to attack a 13 year old child on national TV for laughs?
Apparently, vile enough to be the supposed star witness for Democrats.

This is a very serious, solemn, and prayerful process https://t.co/EehksxwZ4G

Classless move by a Democratic “witness”. Prof Karlan uses a teenage boy who has nothing to do with this joke of a hearing (and deserves privacy) as a punchline. And what’s worse, it’s met by laughter in the hearing room. What is being done to this country is no laughing matter.

Democrats chose liberal professor Pam Karlan as their star impeachment witness.
She just went out of her way to mock and attack Barron Trump, the President’s 13-year-old child.
Democrats have disgraced themselves by giving a platform to this unhinged, petty kook. pic.twitter.com/LuteVNdbS7

That was a cheap shot at the President’s 13-year-old son.
It was an extremely unnecessary attempt at a joke.
And it was also so so so incredibly and painfully scripted. https://t.co/bbImwHzjMu

Democrat “witness” Pamela Karlan is completely UNHINGED.

Constitutional professor uses President Trump’s 13 year old son to make the case against his father.
This is disgusting, leave children out of your politics, Barron did not ask for this, and this professor should be ashamed of herself pic.twitter.com/XzJFYaC7ex
