On Episode 58 of War Room: Impeachment hosts Raheem Kassam and Jason Miller discuss First Lady Melania Trump’s epic Twitter smackdown of Democrat’s so-called “constitutional law expert” Pamela Karlan for her attack on Barron Trump, her and the president’s 13-year-old son.
Karlan unnecessarily invokes Barron Trump during the first House Judiciary public hearing:

“Kings could do no wrong because the king’s word was law. Contrary to what President Trump has said, Article II does not give him the power to do anything he wants. I’ll just give you one example that shows the difference between him and a king. The Constitution says there can be no title of nobility, so while the president can name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron.”
To Miller, it’s “absolutely unconscionable” and “only the tip of the iceberg for some of the crazy she’s dished out over the years.”
To Kassam, it’s a “totally gratuitous attack on a 13 year old boy. I think that speaks to her character.”
In response to Karlan, the First Lady tweeted:
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.

Miller lauds her response: “This is the First Lady of the United States going directly at this crazy, unhinged wack job liberal jurist.”
Miller also notes “it was obviously rehearsed beforehand. We even saw in one of those clips played earlier on the show, she made some kind of king reference. It’s a play off of a previous quote she had said. So she actually thought this through. She’s in her hotel room thinking I’m going to go out there and diss President Trump’s 13-year-old child. Let me think of a funny way to go and do this.”
Kassam also believes “it looked like [Karlan and Rep. Jackson Lee] had rehearsed it between them because the facial expression of Rep. Jackson Lee was like “haha, you nailed it” [suggesting] they had been practicing it.
Equally epic was Rep. Matt Gaetz, a frequent guest of War Room: Impeachment, destroying Karlan during the hearing:
He then says to all witnesses: "If you have personal knowledge of a single material fact in the Schiff Report, please raise your hand."

When Karlan attempts to interrupt him, he unloads: “You don’t get to interrupt me on this. Now let me also suggest that when you invoke the president’s son name here, 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. It makes you look like you’re attacking someone’s family, the minor child of the President of the United States.”
Kassam concludes: “This is a Stanford law school professor who’s out there making racist comments, attacking children, and this is who Jerry Nadler puts up in the Judiciary hearing today.”
