White House adviser Kellyanne Conway’s husband, George Conway, ripped First Lady Melania Trump for defending her son Barron yesterday.
Barron’s name was invoked by Pamela Karlan in an bad attempt to score cheap political points yesterday to almost universal condemnation.
Karlan clearly rehearsed the line and thought she had a winner when she could have easily said Trump cannot make Ivanka a princess or something like that to make her point.
But she was too clever for her own good and dragged a teenager into the mix. Conway is blaming the first lady for helping make the story go viral, but the fact is Karlan apologized so she knows she crossed the line.
As George did by going after first lady Melania for something anyone would do.
The Hill reported that Stanford Law School professor Pamela Karlan made a joke about Barron’s name during her remarks.
“Contrary to what President Trump has said, Article 2 does not give him the power to do anything he wants, and 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,” she told lawmakers on the House Judiciary Committee.
First lady Melania later criticized Karlan on Twitter, writing, “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.”
But George Conway, husband of Kellyanne Conway, accused Melania of amplifying Karlan’s comments, which he called a “nothingburger reference.”
“So therefore you’re amplifying what was a nothingburger reference a hundred-thousand-fold. Got it,” Conway tweeted.
