During the impeachment hearings today, a professor of law and a constitutional scholar at Stanford, Pamela Karlan, weighed in on whether Donald Trump committed impeachable offenses. She believes he did. Professor Karlan also said something so horrible, so heinous, so terrible about Donald Trump’s son, that it elicited this reaction from Melania Trump:
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
In fact, much Trump twitter lost their mind over this HORRIBLE thing that Professor Karlan said during the hearing.
Karlan’s cheap shot invoking Baron Trump’s name just lost them any shred of hope that they’re going to win this impeachment battle in the court of public opinion.— Laura Ingraham (@IngrahamAngle) December 4, 2019
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.— Stephanie Grisham (@PressSec) December 4, 2019
This is the sort of stuff that loses independent voters in the Midwest. They don’t like people so angry they attack someone’s 13-year-old son. This is the kind of anger that helped them lose the recall in Wisconsin.https://t.co/evOfCLeTbr— Scott Walker (@ScottWalker) December 4, 2019
And shame on Prof. Karlan to attack Baron Trump. Nice to see Rep. Gaetz annihilate everyone of them.— Carmine Sabia (@CarmineSabia) December 4, 2019
Why do you support targeting children for harsssment, as Karlan did today to Baron Trump? https://t.co/5wLFVjeqGs— Mike Cernovich (@Cernovich) December 4, 2019
What did newly minted "Most Hated Woman In America," Pam Karlan, hope to achieve by attacking Barron Trump in today's hearings - making fun of his name?— Bill Mitchell (@mitchellvii) December 4, 2019
In her mind, did THAT seem like a GOOD idea?
We have reached DEFCON 1 stupid folks.
Pamela Karan has an evil and angry heart.— Ryan Fournier (@RyanAFournier) December 4, 2019
Her hate doesn’t stop at the President, it also includes his 13-year-old son, Barron.
She’s trying to destroy Trump, not based on fact, but on her own shallow emotion.
One of Democrats' impeachment witnesses, the one who says she can't walk on the sidewalk in front of Trump hotel because of her hatred for Bad Orange Man, just went after Barron Trump, if you're wondering how things are going.— Mollie (@MZHemingway) December 4, 2019
Rep. Matt Gaetz even called Karlan out during the hearing.

"You don't get to interrupt me on this time! … When you invoke the president 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." pic.twitter.com/DIgpG5rgSh
Good God! Given all the invective, Professor Karlan must have said something really terrible about Barron Trump, the President’s 13-year-old son. What kind of personal attack on a teenager did she deliver that upset these people so much?! I’m almost afraid to find out!
Democrat "witness" Pamela Karlan is completely UNHINGED.— Steve Guest (@SteveGuest) December 4, 2019
She is now attacking @realDonaldTrump's 13 year old son Barron Trump in an attempt to smear President Trump.#StopTheMadness #JerryRigged pic.twitter.com/4aktNR2Tps
Wait, what? I don’t … she … uh … she … mentioned … his name?
I think it’s time to shut down these hearings. THE DEMO-RATS HAVE GONE TOO FAR! HOW DARE THEY! IMPEACH OBAMA.
Does Matt Gaetz … does he realize we have just one president at a time? pic.twitter.com/xIlnBGDdDf— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) December 4, 2019
