One of the Democrats' witnesses at today's public impeachment hearing against President Trump was a Stanford Stanford Law School professor who is also a supporter of presidential candidate Democrat Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass).
The professor, Pamela Karlan, attacked President Trump by bringing up his 13-year old son, Barron. Karlan told Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) that "the president can name his son 'Barron,' [but] he can't make him a baron."
After much backlash social media from the comment, particularly on social media, Karlan apologized.
“I want to apologize for what I said earlier about the president’s son,” Karlan said. “It was wrong of me to do that. I wish the president would apologize, obviously, for the things that he’s done that’s wrong, but I do regret having said that.”
When Karlan was questioned by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Florida) during the hearing about her $1,000 donation to Sen. Warren this year, Karlan "became indignant, invoking foreign intervention in American elections."
Feldman's a real winner, too:

Half-hearted apology is not acceptable
A true statement is NOT an attack. Pamela, never apologize for a very clever true reference. 2nd there is absolutely no reason to apologize to Trump until he apologizes for 1/10th of the disparaging childish names he has called his numerous adversarial betters. 3rd this is what happens when Trump's desperate manic insecurities reveal themselves in his necessity to name his innocent child with a royalty connotation. And finally if you are looking for a universally recognized actual joke name, use Matt Gaetz.
Don't name call, or in any way mess with someone's child. Adults can pick on each other but don't pick on a child, don't make fun of a child, Russ. You are comparing apples and oranges.
Maybe their joke was funny in their rehearsals, but they should have looked around to see how many politicians and lawyers are funny before doing it. By my count its zero.
Karlan ignored all the Democrat children who raked in millions from foreign businesses. They are the real barons and baronesses.
