Melania Trump condemns lawyer over joke about son Baron

Melania Trump has taken the unusual step of speaking out on Twitter after a witness joked about her 13-year-old son during the president’s impeachment inquiry hearing.

Stanford Law School professor Pamela Karlan, giving evidence during the inquiry, said: “The Constitution says there can be no titles of nobility. So while the president can name his son Baron, he can’t make him a baron.”

The remark sparked laughter from some in the House Judiciary Committee audience.

The US first lady, who rarely wades in to political debate, slammed the lawyer on Twitter.

“A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics,” she wrote. “Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it.”
