The First Lady is well known for defending Barron when he is used to mock the president. During the impeachment inquiry hearing, Stanford Law School’s Pamela S. Karlan was asked to compare the fears of the framers of the US Constitution to President Trump’s behaviour and invoked his son, Barron, in her response. She gave an example of the difference between Trump’s role and a King.
Ms Karlan said: “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 Barron.”
Her comments were met with laughter from the room.
An outraged Melania took to Twitter to vent her distaste at Ms Karlan’s comments.
The First Lady tweeted: “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.”
Ms Kaplan later said: “I want to apologise for what I said earlier about the President’s son.
“It was wrong of me to do that.

Another Twitter user said: “The American people stand with you FLOTUS”
One Twitter user responded: “Queen FLOTUS slaps back better!”
Kambree Koa wrote on Twitter: “Thank you for defending your boundaries and your son who happens to be a minor without hesitation. Only the weak and cruel attack children.”
Political analyst Ryan Knight responded to the First Lady’s Twitter rage.
He wrote: “Professor Karlan already apologised for mentioning Barron Trump.”
Mr Knight added it was Melania who should be ashamed for “being silent” while her husband “betrayed the country”.
Cheri Jacobus claimed Melania was being “cheap” with her Twitter attack towards Ms Karlan.
She wrote: “You just used your only child to score political points. No one attacked him, and you know that. You really are cheap.”
Other Twitter users highlighted Trump’s social media attacks aimed at teenage environmental activist Greta Thunberg.
Mo Kelly wrote to Melania on Twitter: “Let me direct you to Trump’s attack on Greta.”
Another said: “Your husband personally attacked Greta Thunberg. Before you go on a campaign to tell others to Be Best, you should have a family talk.”
