In the hearing this afternoon, leftist lawyer and professor Pamela Karlan actually invoked Trump’s own son when answering a question about the differences between Trump and a king.
Holy cow. Democrat "witness" Pamela Karlan invokes President Trump's son Barron… "the President can name his son Barron, he can't make him a baron."
3…2…1… til Democrats tell us bringing the President's 13yo son into impeachment is totally cool.pic.twitter.com/t72cj3JlZa

“I’ll just give you one example that shows 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.”
That’s the point you’re gonna make. That one. That’s what your going with?
What a stupid point. And honestly, what a stupid question. But seriously, you’d think a Stanford law professor could come up with something better than than when pointing out the difference between an American president and a King.
Also, why even bring Trump’s son into this? What has he done to deserve being singled out in a bogus impeachment hearing in the first place? Does Karlan hate Trump so much that she thinks using his own son is fair game in these proceedings in order to attack Trump? Apparently so.
UPDATE: Melania just responded to Pamela Karlan’s use of her son in these hearings:
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.

Boom! I think that says it all.
UPDATE: Karlan just apologized in the hearing for using Barron’s name:

She did apologize, and I think she was somewhat sincere. But she still took a jab at the president while doing it by saying “I wish the president would apologize for some of the things he’s done”. See, she hates Trump so much that she can’t even apologize without attacking him, which is super lame.
