First Lady Melania Trump Slams Democrat Impeachment Witness For Viciously Mocking Barron Trump During Testimony

0 1,476

First Lady Melania Trump went mama bear on Twitter after Democrat impeachment witness Stanford Law Professor and Appellate Attorney Pamela Karlan mocked her teenage son Barron Trump’s name during the impeachment hearing. “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,” the first lady wrote on Twitter. That’s exactly right and Karlan’s ‘mean girl’ attack on Barron is reprehensible.

Karlan used Trump’s son Barron as an example of why President Trump could not use his power to bestow titles of nobility, unlike a king. “So while the president can name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron,” Kaplan said in response to a question from Rep. Shelia Jackson Lee during the hearing. Considering the two aren’t even spelled the same, you have to wonder about the alleged intelligence of Karlan. This is Trump Derangement Syndrome totally unhinged. Even worse, this attack was rehearsed by the Democrats.

From Breitbart:

“Earlier in the afternoon, White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham also voiced her disgust.

“Classless move by a Democratic ‘witness,’” Grisham wrote on Twitter. “Professor Karlan uses a teenage boy who has nothing to do with this joke of a hearing (and deserves privacy) as a punchline.”

“Democrats in the impeachment hearing laughed at the comparison, despite Kaplan clearly making fun of Barron Trump’s name.

“Grisham condemned all of the Democrats in the room for laughing.

“What’s worse, it’s met by laughter in the hearing room,” she wrote. “What is being done to this country is no laughing matter.”

“Young children of presidents are traditionally considered by Americans to be off-limits for mockery or criticism.

“Others on Twitter also criticized Kaplan for her awkward political stunt, including Donald Trump Jr.

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

“Rep. Matt Gaetz also vocally criticized Karlan during the hearing for her comment.

“Rep. Mark Meadows responded on Twitter, mocking Democrats who repeatedly claimed that impeachment was a very solemn occasion.

“This is a very serious, solemn, and prayerful process,” he wrote.”

I listened to the whole thing today. Karlan is a vile human being. She claims to be a constitutional scholar. I took constitutional law and although I’m not an attorney, I’m pretty sure I am far more familiar with the Constitution than this woman is. She’s biased, hateful, and she lies. Now, you can add attacking a child out of spite to her list of attributes.

The left has gone after Barron from the very beginning. He’s an innocent child and this is just evil. I’m glad that Rep. Mike Johnson entered Melania’s reprimand into the congressional record over this. Donald Trump Jr. also said: “Remember only children of Liberals (even the 50 year old children) are off limits. That a 13 year old is fair game for partisan hacks on a national platform shows you all you need to know about the new left and who is now running the ship.” Trump Jr. added: “I guess this explains why this partisan ‘scholar’ it would go on national TV and try to make a joke out of a 13-year-old child. Obviously no bias here GTFO with this nonsense already.”

Fox News anchor Bret Baier commented on Melania Trump’s tweet, writing: “When the First Lady is on Twitter responding to a Democrat witness referencing her son – Baron – in order to zing her husband — it’s not the best moment for said witness.”

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) tweeted out a video from the hearing where he slammed Karlan, telling her, “You don’t get to interrupt me on this time. 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 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.”

Karlan did apologize late today but she didn’t mean it. You could tell. It was perfunctory and weak, to say the least.

“I want to apologize earlier for what I said earlier about the president’s son. It was wrong for me to do that,” she said, noting she was happy to admit when she was wrong. “I wish the president would apologize for the things that he’s done,” she added. Does that sound sincere to you? Me either.

The Trump campaign also released a statement condemning Democrats’ impeachment witnesses going after Barron Trump.

“Only in the minds of crazed liberals is it funny to drag a 13-year-old child into the impeachment nonsense,” the campaign said. “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.”

The campaign concluded, “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.”

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham also expressed distaste for the quip.

“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,” Grisham tweeted. “And what’s worse, it’s met by laughter in the hearing room. What is being done to this country is no laughing matter.”

Karlan has notably donated over $10,000 to Democratic candidates, including Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, and has expressed anti-Trump bias in the past. She also admitted once that she crossed the street in Washington, DC to avoid walking directly past the Trump International Hotel.

Karlan was roasted everywhere for attacking Barron like this as she should be. But make no mistake, this was planned. It wasn’t just Karlan… it was the Democrats. And remember they did this while his parents were out of the country at a NATO conference. Shame on every single one of them.
