I was wrong to do that, "Karlan said. So, while the president can name his son Barron, he can't make him a baron", Karlan said amidst laughter from the audience.

"A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics", first lady Melania Trump also tweeted.

US first lady Melania Trump on Wednesday blasted a law professor for mentioning her teenage son Barron Trump during an impeachment hearing against President Donald Trump.

On Wednesday, Karlan drew ire from the White House, the Trump campaign and even First Lady Melania Trump after using 13-year-old Barron Trump's name to illustrate her point that President Trump can't rule like a king.

It was retweeted by her husband, who is now travelling back to the United States after attending the 2019 North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in London where Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was heard mocking Mr Trump with other world leaders.

Earlier, Stanford Law School professor Pamela Karlan made a joke about Barron's name when she criticized Trump's conduct during her witness testimony in front of House Democrats. Pamela Karlan You should be ashamed of your angry and prejudiced statements to entice people and to use a child for this.

"It makes you watch delight in you can also very successfully be attacking somebody's family, the minor child of the president of the usa", Gaetz stated.

Rep. Matt Gaetz, a Florida Republican who is one of Donald Trump's staunchest allies in Congress, directly confronted Karlan about the comment during his period of questioning at the hearing.

The incident brought a wave of criticism, including from Trump's re-election campaign. However, the professor later apologized for his comments.

Lawmakers and Trump administration officials followed suit, echoing scathing assessments of Karlan's words.

"Classless movement by a Democratic "watch". Absolutely disgraceful", House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy wrote on Twitter.

Republican Congressman Markwayne Mullin, meanwhile, called the episode "reprehensible" while Trump Senior Counselor Kellyanne Conway questioned why "Hunter Biden is off-limits but Barron Trump is not?" They argued that Trump's actions as laid out by the House Intelligence Committee constitute an impeachable offense.

After dismissing the first lady as a political "pawn" Scarborough said, "by the way, Melania Trump, I'm still waiting for her to ask her husband to apologize for face-shaming my wife, lying about my wife, saying that she was bleeding badly from a facelift, taking a personal conversation".

Melania Trump has taken up the cause of youth wellness in America, and a year ago launched a public awareness campaign to counter youth cyberbullying and drug use.
