Melania Trump lashes out at Stanford professor for dragging son Barron's name in impeachment hearing
First Lady Melania Trump is not usually the one who opens up in public. She has so far maintained a distinct character of her own, even if it is silently.
However, on Wednesday, December 4, the 49-year-old chose to drop her calm and composed persona and lashed out at constitutional scholar Pamela Karlan for coming up with her minor son Barron’s name during the House Judiciary Committee’s impeachment hearing against her husband President Donald Trump.
“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,” Melania said in a tweet.
Karlan, a law professor from Stanford University, was called by the Democrats as a witness. She was asked to describe the differences between the American president and a king and it was then when she came up with the name of Barron, their teenage son.
