Unhinged Partisan ‘Expert’ Attacks President Trump’s 13-Year-Old Son


A legal “expert” invited by Democrats to testify at Wednesday’s impeachment hearings targeted President Donald Trump’s 13-year-old son.

Pamela Karlan, a Stanford law professor and constitutional scholar, made the remarks during her testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on its first day of formal impeachment hearings.

“I’ll just give you one example that shows you the difference between him and a king, which is: 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,” said Karlan.

Kayleigh McEnany, press secretary for the president’s reelection campaign, called Karlan’s comments “disgusting” in a statement released Wednesday.

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

Karlan received harsh criticism for her comments from conservatives on Twitter, 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? Apparently, vile enough to be the supposed star witness for Democrats. Grotesque,” he said.

“Hunter Biden is off-limits but Barron Trump is not?” added White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.

Cliff Sims, a former White House communications aide, said: “These people are sick losers. This is what happens when you think Twitter is real life—you bring up your opponents’ underage children to get lols.”

Republican Party Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel wrote: “Talk about distasteful and unprofessional. One of Democrats’ liberal professors just mocked Donald Trump’s son’s name to make a political point about impeachment. Professor Karlan should be ashamed of herself.”

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA-23) said: “Democrats are so desperate that one of their biased witnesses is now attacking the president’s 13-year-old son. Absolutely disgraceful.”

Sean Davis, co-founder of The Federalist, wrote: “Media eagerly rode to the rescue to prevent any criticism of Joe Biden’s 50-year-old, cocaine-snorting, stripper-impregnating, Ukrainian oligarch-coddling child, but I’m skeptical that we’ll see them defend Trump’s 13-year-old son with the same vigor.”

Fox News host Laura Ingraham said: “Karlan’s cheap shot invoking Barron 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.”

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham called it a “classless move.”
