Professor Pamela Karlan, of Stanford University, was a very poor expert witness in today’s hearing. In addition to having to apologize for a remark she made about Trump’s 13-year-old son, she made the following amazing statement.
“When the President said ‘do us a favor,’ he was using the royal we there. It wasn’t a favor for the United States. He should have said do me a favor because only kings say ‘us’ when they mean ‘me,’” she said.
What a wild and biased conclusion to jump to! Does she really think there was no other much more logical reason for Trump to have used “us” instead of “me” in that statement?
Does she really think that only kings say “us” when they mean “me”? Only kings???
This is what happens when one spends one’s life interacting with only like-minded people and have nobody with contrary ideas around to correct one’s careless deductions.
I suggest she start posting here–plenty of smart, dissenting voices to deal with.
