‘I had to cross the street, of course,’ said Pamela Karlan to a captive audience a few years ago
Pamela Karlan, a Stanford Law School professor and one of the star witnesses for Democrats at Wednesday’s House Judiciary Committee’s impeachment inquiry, was once so triggered by President Donald Trump that she couldn’t bear to walk past a hotel featuring his name.
Karlan told her traumatic story to a captive audience at a 2017 American Constitution Society event.
“I came in from the airport yesterday and I got off the bus from Dulles, down at L’Enfant Plaza, and I walked up to the hotel and … I was walking past what used to be the old post office building and is now Trump hotel,” Karlan relayed.
“I had to cross the street, of course.”
When a colleague on the panel asked, “Are you staying there?” Karlan replied, “God, no! Never!”
Excellent work, Democrats.
That’s just what you want from a witness when trying to convince the American people that the impeachment hearings aren’t a sham — somebody who can’t even (or won’t) bring herself to walk past a building with a particular name on it.
Simply listening to this individual’s testimony on Wednesday, coupled with the delicate snowflake story of being unable to walk past a Trump hotel because she hates him so much, is enough to indicate one thing.
Democrats chose the most biased individuals they could possibly think of to further the impeachment sham.
Karlan revealed her extreme bias throughout the hearing. But she truly raised the ire of the Trump family when she chose to invoke the name of president’s youngest child, Barron Trump.
“The Constitution says there can be no titles of nobility. So while the president can name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron,” she explained, drawing laughter from some Democrats at the hearing and befuddlement from the rest of America’s viewers — who were trying to figure out the nonsense that just poured out of her mouth.
It took first lady Melania Trump no time at all to post a rare tweet, completely eviscerating Karlan for her antics.
A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics. Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it.

While Democrats were parading faux “expert witnesses,” Republicans were able to call but one witness of their own, liberal law professor Jonathan Turley of George Washington University in D.C.
During his testimony, Turley slammed Democrats for lowering the bar on impeachment and pursuing an agenda based on anger toward the president.
“This impeachment not only fails to satisfy the standard of past impeachments but would create a dangerous precedent.” – Turley

The contrasts of professionalism were readily apparent, leading LifeZette to declare Turley the “winner” of Wednesday’s testimony and Karlan the clear-cut “loser.”
Using Karlan to try and pull the wool over voters’ eyes is yet another indicator that Democrats will do anything to stop President Trump.
Republican voters need to remember this.
This is true not only for 2020 — but if and when the day actually comes that a Democrat actually captures the White House.
