As Twitchy reported, Stanford law professor Pamela Karlan, testifying before the House Judiciary Committee, took a cheap shot at Donald and Melania Trump’s 13-year-old son with a line she’d obviously rehearsed.
At impeachment hrng, Stanford law professor Pamela Karlan notes the Constitution bars titles of nobility and that the Founders wanted to avoid the absolute rights of monarchs: "While the President can name his son Barron, he can't make him a baron." This drew applause

This is one of those times when I like to imagine the press outrage if this was a quip about one of Obama’s daughters. Also, what an angry elf! pic.twitter.com/PqLmE1Ond8

The Trump campaign already responded with a statement: “Only in the minds of crazed liberals is it funny to drag a 13-year-old child into the impeachment nonsense.”
It’s not often we hear from the first lady on Twitter, but she took the time to call out Karlan by name:
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 worst part is it was obviously rehearsed beforehand. ?? https://t.co/6vO2vyyonW

They're gonna try to impeach the first lady for witness tampering.

I hope your son understands the laughter was by adults that hate more than they love our country.
I'm a veteran. I understand.

True words – your son should have never been dragged into her angry diatribe. Unfortunately, I do not believe she is capable of feeling shame.
I personally want to thank you for all you do, for your strength, your grace. You are an amazing FLOTUS! #KAG2020LandslideVictory

Of course, all the liberals in the replies are telling her that her husband should lock up kids in cages like when the Obama administration did it and no one said anything, so it’s OK to take shots at her child.
