Dem star witness Pamela Karlan gave away the game with a totally classless attack on Barron Trump of all people. Sure, attack President Trump all you want, and donate to the Democrats all you want (and she donated plenty to Hillary), but leave the kid alone.
He is not a politician – he is a teenage boy who does not need the scrutiny. He needs and deserves privacy and a life out of politics.
The White House was furious with Stephanie Grisham and didn’t wait long to respond.
“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.”
NBC also reported that Pamela Karlan forcefully rebutted President Trump’s argument that Article II of the U.S. Constitution gives him the power to “do whatever I want.”
She said that the Founding Fathers didn’t want a king who would rule with impunity, and that impeachment is a tool to hold a leader accountable.
“The Constitution doesn’t allow titles of nobility,” she said. “The president can name his son Barron, but he can’t make him a baron.”
