FLOTUS defends her son: “You Should Be Ashamed of Yourself”
Melania goes full-on mama bear.
The impeachment hearings have been taking America by storm. Some can’t keep their eyes off the news, and some are so fed up they can’t stand to hear another word.
But that’s not why FLOTUS is livid.
In the hearing today, one of the witnesses, Professor Pamela Karlan (pictured below), needlessly went after Melania’s son – simply to make a point about the president.

What did she say?
“I’ll just give you one example that shows you the difference between him [Donald Trump] and a king, which is the Constitution says there can be no titles of nobility,” Karlan said. “So while the president can name his son ‘Barron’, he can’t make him a ‘baron’.”
A ‘baron’ holds a title of honor or nobility, sometimes given by a king.
And the crowd goes wild.
In a tweet post-insult, Melania said, “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.”
Trump campaign national press secretary Kayleigh McEnany made a statement in support of the first lady, saying, “Only in the minds of crazed liberals is it funny to drag a 13-year-old child into the impeachment nonsense.”

Ivanka continues to pursue her efforts for paid family leave and affordable child care.
In a tweet posted on Tuesday, she said, “Thank YOU @SenBillCassidy for your leadership in introducing the 1st ever bipartisan, bicameral paid leave plan! #PFL”

Ivanka recently spoke with the USA Today network as well, saying, “It’s a travesty that we are the only country in the developed world without a policy to support parents and families. It’s an area that we just needed to do better, and we fought to do better.”

Ivanka supports the need for action on these issues by addressing changes in the economy and the increasing number of working mothers.
One of her big accomplishments has been doubling the child tax credit – child tax credits give income boosts to parents with children under age 17. It’s now worth up to $2,000 per child, rather than the $1,000 it was before.
