    We are done with impeachment

    An incredible gaffe that she and the Dems will not live down

    We elect Presidents not elites with white privelege sneer and make a joke about the President of the United States son all the while shouting hysterically about removing him from office

    I heard her say

    The president can name his son Barron but he cannot appoint his son a baron

    Is that offensive?

    I believe kids are off limits but that was not a swipe at the kid

    For someone who is as insensitive as Trump his supporters sure are sensitive. Unless of course this is mock outrage

    A 13 year old as the butt of a joke? Yeah, that's offensive. Especially since he's had no part in photo opps or the campaign. I can only imagine the uproar if the equivalent had been done to either Sasha or Melia Obama during his first term.

    Was it a joke or was it an example of the powers the president has as established by our constitution

    He can name his son Barron but he cannot appoint him a baron is not making fun of the kid.

    And bac only in your sycophant mind is it telling

    Faux outrage

    If their name was queen or princess and someone said he can name his children queen or princess but he cannot appoint them queen or princess I would not see anything wrong with that statement

    not sure what the issue is

    if discussing the constitutionality of a title and the President's son's name is a title you have a good example

    on the Biden front if you are talking about killing animals you have Hunter Biden.

    and.... would Donald officially change his name to KingDonald J trump? If he did you would have to call him King Donald

    Absolutely.

    it’s both offensive and it’s theatrical and shows how ridiculous this whole thing is.

    i thought it was suppose to be serious matter, she was cracking jokes right and left. This woman is vile. Republicans killed her today. Cheap jokes about a presidents son shows she has TDS, she already appeared on a Versus Trump podcast. Turley was the adult in the room

    I don’t find it offensive

    I agree it was theatrical and an attempt to be too clever but it was not offensive

    no because the other 3 are clearly in the bag being anti Trump. Turley is not a Trump supporter and appears to have a clear mind.

    No matter how you slice it or justify it with words.
    The fact is she purposely used the President’s juvenile son as a punch line to a joke...end of story.

    It was a well thought out play on words, she was well aware of that and thought it was witty

    I agree she was trying to be witty but it was not offensive towards the kid

    Are his parents offended. Most assuredly. It's offensive to bring up a kid in that setting. For no reason other than to try and score cheap points.

    She shouldn't have used that line. irrelevant to the matter at hand and inappropriate.

    Nor does her inappropriate comment have any impact on impeachment process.

    This was over a long, long time ago. It's just a partisan waste of time now.

    Offensive though

    Clearly from the reaction it completely distracted everyone from the point she was making but it was not offensive

    If it was Don Jr. in his 40's and involved in the campaign I'd have had no problem with it. Different for a 13 year old who has not been campaigning.

    it is meaningless... what value did that have at all?

    What the hell was the question asked? Is Donald Trump a king? Is the United States a monarchy?

    I love the way the "witness" sits back as if she just hit one out of the park.

    Yes, IMO that was offensive to use his name like that.

    I think the witness, Pamela, should be forced to surrender her own name...

    This name is believed to have been invented by Sir Philip Sidney for his novel "Arcadia". Some think he contrived it from two Greek words: "pan", meaning "all", and "meli", meaning honey. Thus, Pamela could be taken to mean "sweet all through" or "all sweetness".
    Obvious a horrid mistake by Professor Karlin's parents while in all likelihood, "Barron" will become a real estate or hotel baron... like Barron Hilton. Truth.

    repeatedly during the testimony, they are saying king, monarchy, dictator...why are they saying this....we have elections...the Dems are the ones who are not adhering to our consitutions and norms. Its sick when you actually think about it

    That's one angry lesbian. You can see she has an anger for traditional American family values.
