Amidst great backlash, one of the Democrat’s “legal experts,” has been forced to apologize for a wisecrack she made directed at the president’s youngest son during her testimony in yesterday’s impeachment hearings.

Lawyer Pamela Karlan, invoked 13-year-old Barron Trump when trying to make a point that Trump can’t rule like a king. The comment sparked laughs from the Chamber and ire from the White House and Republicans.

“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 said in the committee hearing room, prompting audible chuckles.

The White House blasted Karlan as “classless” and the Trump campaign called her joke “disgusting.”

“A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics,” first lady Melania Trump tweeted. “Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it.”

“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,” White House press secretary Stephanie 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 later apologized, but put in another dig at the president. “I want to apologize for what I said earlier about the president’s son. It was wrong of me to do that. I wish the president would apologize, obviously, for the things that he’s done that’s wrong, but I do regret having said that.”

Kayleigh McEnany, the Trump 2020 national press secretary, called on all Democrats to repudiate Karlan and called for the professor to apologize to the Trump family.

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

Karlan was one of three legal scholars testifying at the request of Democrats in the first Judiciary Committee impeachment inquiry hearing. Jonathan Turley, a professor at George Washington University Law School, was the sole GOP witness.

Her Barron Trump punchline came during questioning by Rep. Shelia Jackson Lee, D-Texas, on how Trump’s conduct compared to that of kings.

“Contrary to what President Trump has said, Article Two does not give him the power to do anything he wants,” Karlan responded.

Then she offered the Barron quip to “show you the difference between him and a king.”

  1. Prof Karlan’s almost apology is so typical of Democrats that never seem to take responsibility for their actions…”I’m sorry BUT…” the but part being that it was the President whose actions allowed her to make fun of the President’ son….a pathetic excuse for a supposed apology. It is an embarrassment to her and Stamford University, although that institution is a petri dish of extreme Liberal thought, and infects any students foolish enough to spend time there.

  2. So much for unamerican educated person who is so deep rooted in Hate for our President . He has proven to be the best President in my life time of eighty six years

  3. She is obviously biased which the Democrats should have accessed and probably would have if they wanted even the appearance of impartiality as to their witnesses in this matter were biased. Democrats are breaking down the trust the American people have bestowed to Congress. Perhaps it is time for us to consider whether there is a better system altogether in light of the mockery that can be made of the Congressional system. It is quite embarrassing what is happening in Congress for the sole reason that Barr is conducting criminal investigations and they can’t beat the President in the general elections to stop it. To me the entire Democratic process of impeachment is an act of obstruction of justice leveled at the President but it is to stop the Barr/Durham investigations.

  4. Yeah, it’s a big joke to laffy laff about, yay Democrat weirdos strike again in comedian format during an impeachment forum,! Real appropriate, but then again Brownie Points and Kudos to next “witness” that can “up-one” on that joke. Totally a laughing matter necessary to mock and make jest of to be part of the popular clique! Worst than high school, no Elementary kids.

  5. Historically, it had been the policy that the children and spouse of elected officials were not fair game for the media. Beat up on the candidate or officials all you want press but, leave the families alone!
    All that has changed with the hate mongering Democrats and their unceasing vitriol. Any occasion can be seen as a reason for chastisement, no matter how insignificant or benign. The complainants are the classic example of childishness and immaturity, to say nothing about their lack of journalistic professionalism!

  6. You hit the clown (nail) right on the head. Those Demorats that thought it was funny and stood by and did nothing are just as guilty. You are known by those who you are around. Birds of a feather …. disgusting donkey talk is not funny.

  7. Karlan must have gotton her degree from the gutters. No one have said that about a young child. You need to have children so you would know how it would feel for a grown adult to say that about anyone child. You should be ashamed and not show your ugly face again. I hope if people that see you would shame you.

  8. Pamela Karlan appears to be a cheap, angry, unethical hyper-partisan quasi academic unworthy of teaching in a top tier University, She has litlle credibility at all from her House testimony on Impeachment, citing thin, weak if not bogus justifications to grievously charge our indefatigable ever achieving patriotic businessman-President. Let POTUS govern. Stop this lying madness already.

  9. Why can a democrat demean someone, make crass remarks and not be held accountable. Trump is not a king, and to my knowledge has never claimed to be, but this bitch is is proven to be a useless piece of rat excrement.

  10. Well, she’s a dumbascrap therefore a pathological liar so why would I believe this statement any more than anything else she or any other Dem has said?
