Pamela Karlan, a professor of public interest law at Stanford Law School, testified in a congressional hearing Tuesday before the House Judiciary Committee, where she discussed the constitutional power of the president.
When asked by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee to compare kings’ conduct with Trump’s, Karlan made a point to say that the president does not have the power to “do anything he wants” like a king does.
“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,” Karlan said during the hearing.
The First Lady reacted to Karlan’s comment via Twitter, saying the Stanford professor should be “ashamed” for her “very angry and obviously biased public pandering.”
