Melania Trump generally sits on the sidelines, and does the duties of the First Lady.
She is far from political in that sense. But things got bad enough that she ended up weighing in on impeachment.
After Jerry Nadler’s star witness forced her hand, Melania saw to her take down.
If there’s one thing that will set a mother off, it is when somebody harasses their child.
And that’s exactly what Stanford Law Professor and Appellate Attorney Pamela Karlan did while testifying in front of Nadler’s impeachment hearing.
She made fun of the Trump’s 13-year old son’s name by saying, “while the president can name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron.”
So the First Lady responded, stating: “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.”
Breitbart News reports:
“First Lady Melania Trump criticized a Democrat impeachment witness for making fun of 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.
During the impeachment hearings, Stanford Law Professor and Appellate Attorney Pamela 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.
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.””
Karlan was eventually forced to apologize for dragging a 13-year old into the impeachment hearings.
But Melania’s classy handling of the situation showed a clear difference between the rabid anti-Trump Left leading the hearings and the Trump family.
Do you think Democrats should leave Barron Trump alone?
