Pamela Karlan enraged many across America with her cheap (and practiced for the cameras) jab at Barron Trump.
It was ugly and uncalled for and Melania Trump immediately let her have it.
“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 was not alone, twitter erupted over the cheap shot with very few defending Karlan. By the way, she was on the shortlist for Obama’s Supreme Court – think about that for a moment.
White House spokeswoman Stepanie Grisham hit back too: “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.”
Melania condemnation via tweet was even read into the Congressional record so all history will know what Pamela said and why it was so hurtful.
Not good for her legacy to be sure. So bowing to the pressure she thought she had to apologize.
Which she did in typical liberal fashion – in a totally half-assed way.
“It was wrong of me to do that. I wish the president would apologize for the things he’s said wrong, but I do regret having said that,” she said trying to attack Trump instead of owning her mistake.
