Joe Biden loves to preach “unity,” but the people with whom he is staffing his administration are one of many examples that Obama’s former Vice President has no intention of actually unifying the country. Now, he’s hired someone who feels that attacking a child is a good use of her time.
Though these attacks are standard and Democrats generally show themselves to be absolutely awful, few venture into the territory of attacking President Trump’s underage son, who is completely removed from politics. Eric? Sure. Don Jr.? Absolutely. Ivanka? Constantly. Tiffany? Yup. But Barron? Most are untilling to stoop that low. But not former Facebook Oversight Board member Pamela Karlan. She’s perfectly fine with it.
Biden has hired Karlan as principal deputy assistant attorney general in the Civil Division, Politico reports. Karlan made headlines in 2019 while testifying at Democrats’ first sham impeachment trial when she joked about Barron.
“I’ll just give you one example that shows you the difference between [Trump] and a king,” Karlan said. “Which is, 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 baron.”
“A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics,” an infuriated Melania Trump fired back at the time. “Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it.”
“Only in the minds of crazed liberals is it funny to drag a 13-year-old child into the impeachment nonsense,” former Trump spokeswoman said in admonishment of the attack. “Pamela Karlan thought she was being clever and going for laughs, but she instead reinforced for all Americans that Democrats have no boundaries when it comes to their hatred of everything related to President Trump.”
Karlan responded to criticism by offering a non-apology. “I want to apologize for what I said earlier about the president’s son. It was wrong of me to do that,” she said. “I wish the president would apologize, obviously, for the things that he’s done that’s wrong, but I do regret having said that.”
If Biden was truly interested in unity, he would have never allowed such a vile, hateful woman to join his administration. But as we all know, he nor any other Democrat actually wants a country that functions well or brings its citizens together.
