Melania Trump slams Democrats’ impeachment witness who name-dropped Barron

A Democratic impeachment witness apologized Wednesday after she name-dropped 13-year-old Barron Trump during the House Judiciary Committee hearing – and was slammed by First Lady Melania Trump. Pamela Karlan, a Stanford University law professor, had been asked to describe the differences between a U.S. president and a king when she brought up the first son’s name. ‘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,’ Karlan told lawmakers. But about two hours later, Melania Trump tweeted a furious rebuke from Air Force One as she returned with her husband from the NATO summit in London. ‘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,’ tweeted the first lady, who is traveling back to D.C. from London.The dispute came in the later stages of the Judiciary Committee’s first hearing, a marathon when becan at 10am and ended shortly before 7pm.  Soon after FLOTUS’ rare rebuke, Melania Trump’s words were read aloud at the hearing, as it stretched into almost the eighth hour. Several minutes later, Karlan – a Stanford constitutional law professor brought by Democrats to explain why Trump should be impeached – apologized. ‘I want to apologize earlier for what I said earlier about the president’s son,’ she said, noting she was happy to admit when she was wrong. ‘I wish the President would apologize, obviously, for the things he’s done that’s wrong but I do regret having said that,’ she added.   The first lady chimed in via tweet, calling out Stanford University law professor Pamela Karlan, one of the Democrats’ three impeachment witnesses  Stanford law professor Pamela Karlan used Barron Trump as an example when she tried to describe the differences in powers between a president and a king  First lady Melania Trump took offense at one of the Democrats’ witnesses name-dropping 13-year-old Barron Trump during Wednesday’s impeachment hearing on Capitol Hill  First lady Melania Trump (right) made it clear Wednesday that 13-year-old Barron Trump (left) is off limits Donald Trump Jr., Barron Trump’s oldest brother, also slammed Democratic witness Pamela Karlan, over her reference to Barron during Wednesday’s impeachment hearing Donald Trump Jr., the president’s oldest son, also chimed in. ‘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,’ the Trump son tweeted. He was likely referencing Hunter Biden, the 49-year-old son of former Vice President Joe Biden, whose business dealings in Ukraine created the impeachment snowball. Prior to the first lady’s reaction, the White House’s Twitter account commented, ‘Democrats are calling as witnesses the kind of people who would name the minor child of the President as a punchline in a committee hearing.’The tweet showed a video of Rep. Matt Gaetz, a Florida Republican, who tore into Karlan during Wednesday’s Judiciary Committee impeachment hearing, which was a first for that particular committee. ‘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,’ Gaetz said. ‘It makes you look like you’re attacking someone’s family – the minor child of the president of the United State’s family.’ Gaetz also went after Karlan for making Democratic political donations, including giving $2,000 to President Trump’s 2016 rival, Hillary Clinton. Gaetz asked why Karlan had given so much to Clinton and not subsequent Democratic candidates. ‘Because I’ve been giving a lot of money to charity recently because of the poor people in the United States,’ she replied, a clear dig at GOP policies. Donald Trump Jr. also pointed to Karlan’s Democratic donations. ‘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,’ he wrote. ‘GTFO with this nonsense already.’The exchanges between Karlan and Gaetz were one of the most heated between lawmakers and witnesses in a hearing marked by Republican interruptions, Chairman Jerry Nadler clanking his gavel and partisan opining. Republican Rep. Ken Buck had one of the most colorful defenses of President Trump, arguing that under Democrats’ standards, every president was impeachable.    ‘Lyndon Johnson directed the Central Intelligence Agency to place a spy in Barry Goldwater’s campaign. Would that be impeachable conduct according to the other panelists?’ Buck asked. ‘How about when President Kennedy directed his brother Robert Kennedy to deport one of his mistresses as an East German spy, would that qualify as impeachable conduct?’ Rep. Ken Buck, a Colorado Republican, tried a new way to dash Democrats’ push for impeachment – he used examples from other presidents, suggesting they all committed impeachable acts under Democrats’ standards  Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler kicked off the hearing by linking President Trump’s Ukraine pressure campaign, which is central to the current impeachment inquiry, to Russia and the Mueller Report  House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (left) talks with the committee’s top Republican, Rep. Doug Collins (right) Buck was talking about Ellen Rometsch, who Robert Kennedy biographer Evan Thomas said was deported to cover up her affair with the president.The Colorado Republican also brought up a favorite Republican talking point: Benghazi.And even name-dropped the first Republican president, Abraham Lincoln, pointing to his arrest of Maryland legislators to crus
