TALKING POINTS An angry misinformed Stanford Law School professor brought to 12/4/19 Wednesdays impeachment hearings a remarkable dimension of ignorance that is nothing short of mind-boggling.
Stanford Law School Professor Pamela S Karlan had apparently colluded with Judiciary member Cong Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) who urged Stanford Law School Professor Pamela S Karlan to comment when Jackson Lee drew a parallel between President Donald Trump and a monarch.
What comparisons can we make between kings, that the framers were afraid of, and the presidents conduct today? Jackson Lee calculatedly asked Stanford Law School Professor Pamela S Karlan, called to testify as a constitutional law expert.
Stanford Law School Professor Pamela S Karlan replied Kings could do no wrong because the kings word was law, but contrary to what President Trump says, Article II does not give him the power to do anything he wants, Karlan said. The Constitution says there can be no titles of nobility, so while the president can name his son Barron, he cannot make him a baron, she continued.
REALITY CHECK Barron Trump’s name has NOTHING WHATSOEVER TO DO WITH NOBILITY. Barron Trump is named after Barron Hilton, of Hilton Hotel fame, a close friend of President Donald Trump. The name Barron originated from the Old French and was often used as a nickname for a peasant who aspired to land ownership.
It is disconcerting to read that Stanford Law School Professor Pamela S Karlan has been on the Stanford Law School faculty since 1998, is an expert on constitutional law and the Supreme Court, and has argued nine cases before the Supreme Court.
I would strongly suggest Stanford Law School students drop classes taught by Prof Karlan lest the future lawyers jeopardize legal careers by an unfortunate exposure to classes taught by a clearly unqualified Prof Karlan.
Our first lady’s smart, protective, and not a pushover. Way to go Melania...
Bravo, Rep Mike Johnson and Melania!
Hey! What do you mean ‘child’? Mom, I’m bar mitzvah. Ivanka said so! And she should know.
I’m pretty sure Mike Johnson is a republican. I think the shameful hashtag is about the woman that said it.
Good for Melania!
democrats are skilled at finding women to go before the camera and lie. Perhaps they pay them well.
