Conservative politicians, journalists, and activists took to social media on Wednesday to protest Stanford Law School professor Pamela Karlan, after she made a controversial comment about President Donald Trump’s son Barron Trump during her impeachment hearing testimony.

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham, Republican staffers, and Trump 2020 campaign accounts all responded to the “classless” comment.
Classless move by a Democratic “witness”. Prof Karlan uses a teenage boy who has nothing to do with this joke of a hearing (and deserves privacy) as a punchline. And what’s worse, it’s met by laughter in the hearing
