While a lot of today’s sham impeachment hearing chaired by
Jabba the Hut Fat Jerry Nadler was a snoozer, there were parts that were an absolute dumpster fire. And the fire was mostly centered on a vicious, spiteful harpie named Pamela Karlan. I don’t say that as pure invective, because you couldn’t watch her in action and not come to that conclusion. To Karlan. this was a chance to try to do political damage to the president. It had nothing to do with Trump’s conduct or actions or the law. It was simply a political hit. She didn’t even bother to hide her antipathy for President Trump despite being tasked to masquerade as a dispassionate interpreter of the deepest thoughts of the founding fathers.
Woman who can’t even walk on the same side of the street as a Trump building because of her extreme TDS thinks Trump should be impeached. 😏#Karlan

In fact, Karlan was considered as a replacement for David Souter on the Supreme Court but even Obama considered her to be too far left.
Where things really got lit, though, was when she lobbed out a “joke” than had obviously been rehearsed.
Democrats chose liberal professor Pam Karlan as their star impeachment witness.
She just went out of her way to mock and attack Barron Trump, the President's 13-year-old child.

This was just played to help the #Resistance types and the Bulwark staff engage in self-pleasuring. It wasn’t funny. It wasn’t germane. It didn’t make any conceivable point. I imagine Karlan and bunch of her hirsute, cat-lady companions sat around dreaming up some way that she could really dunk on President Trump. So being the crappy human that she is, she elected to use Trump’s teenage (barely) son as a punchline. But this is pretty much how the left operates, recall if you will the clowns than tried to break into Tucker Carlson’s home and terrified his wife and kids in the process.
In the first 0:19 of this, Matt Gaetz figuratively horsewhips her at the cart’s tail for her efforts at humor.
"When you try to make a little joke out of referencing Barron Trump, that does not lend credibility to your argument. It makes you look mean."@mattgaetz wrecks Karlan for attacking 13yr old Barron while also reminding everyone that Dems have NO facts.

Melania Trump got into the act
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.

The Trump Campaign paid attention to it
“Only in the minds of crazed liberals is it funny to drag a 13-year-old child into the impeachment nonsense.” – National Press Secretary @kayleighmcenany

And the White House issued an official statement
"Every Democrat in Congress should immediately repudiate Pamela Karlan and call on her to personally apologize to President @realDonaldTrump and the First Lady for mocking their son on national TV.” – @kayleighmcenany

The insane part of this entire episode is that a month ago, Trump was criticized by Biden fluffers in the media for, in the words of Sean Davis,
and yesterday, this clown from NBC News chastised Jeb Bush for mentioning that Elizabeth Warren lied about sending her kids to public school.
It used to be that polticians drew the line at attacking each other’s children. https://t.co/3v3MwpgkzC

Let the record show that Jeb Bush was referring to the education received by a guy who is now over 40 years old.
Eventually, there was enough heat on her that she apologized, but only in the most begrudging way possible
Pamela Karlan: "I want to apologize for what I said earlier about the president's son. It was wrong of me to do that. I wish the president would apologize, obviously, for the things that he's done that's wrong, but I do regret having said that." pic.twitter.com/7lYiRWCKjw

I don’t think the Democrats accomplished very much today beyond demonstrate that this is simply a partisan hatchet job, but whatever they accomplished was more than offset by the damage this deranged crone did.
