As we told you earlier, during House Judiciary Committee impeachment inquiry testimony, Stanford Law Prof. Pamela Karlan used President Trump’s son to attempt to make a point about monarchs:
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

Quite a while later, somebody might have discovered Karlan’s testimony was resonating poorly:
Heh… Some staffer must be monitoring Twitter. The professor just apologized for making a joke about Barron Trump.

Karlan subsequently tried to reel her previous comments back in, but it didn’t happen without an immediate shift back to Trump:
Pamela Karlan apologies for invoking 13 year old Barron Trump during the impeachment hearing, but then immediately shifts to Trump and says he should apologize too. pic.twitter.com/2v314tSoBz

The quick shift back to Trump doesn’t exactly sell the “apology” as totally authentic:

That’s a Non-Apology.

Yeah, most likely.
