First lady Melania Trump slammed a witness in the House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearing on Wednesday, saying she should be “ashamed” about using her son Barron as an example during the impeachment hearing.


“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,” Melania Trump tweeted of her 13-year-old son ‘Barron’.

Vice President Mike Pence also weighed in, calling the joke “a new low” while speaking at an event in Michigan.

“The Democrats should be ashamed. Enough is enough,” Pence said.

Karlan later said, “I want to apologize for what I said earlier about the president’s son. I do regret having said that.”
