As Twitchy told you earlier, Stanford Law professor and impeachment witness Pamela Karlan explained exactly what it is that makes her the expert these proceedings need:

We thought that was her big mic-drop moment, but apparently she had another zinger up her sleeve:
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

Watch for yourself and see if you find that line even remotely applause-worthy:

Yeah, we don’t get it, either.
Really hope Karlan doesn’t try to pursue a career in comedy https://t.co/FyKDvzVMZl

Donald Trump’s not the one who looks bad here. Barron Trump certainly isn’t. No, that honor goes straight to Pamela Karlan.
That was a cheap shot at the President's 13-year-old son.
It was an extremely unnecessary attempt at a joke.
And it was also so so so incredibly and painfully scripted. https://t.co/bbImwHzjMu

It should have drawn boos. What a terrible thing to say. https://t.co/nEf0qLNlTQ

Just absolutely terrible

Wow. “While the President can name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron.” I cannot believe Karlan just said that, and with such anger. There goes any ounce of credibility she had. #ImpeachmentHearing
