Word is that Prof. Pamela Karlan has apologized for an obviously rehearsed line that dragged 13-year-old Barron Trump’s name into the House Judiciary Committee’s hearing Wednesday. Karlan took a lot of heat for bringing a minor child into politics, and even Melania Trump took to Twitter to tell her she should be ashamed.

PBS White House correspondent and MSNBC contributor Yamiche Alcindor gave the bad pun a “Wow” and described the line as “fire words.”

Glad she added the definition of baron in there; we’d never had understood the connection.
