梅拉尼婭罕見發聲硬懟,卻不是因為特朗普

與美國總統特朗普的“滔滔不絕”相比,美國第一夫人梅拉尼婭就顯得“沉默寡言”了。不過最近,梅拉尼婭卻罕見發聲了。

一段時間以來,梅蘭妮婭在針對特朗普的彈劾調查過程中都保持著沉默,不過本周三(12月4日),她卻打破沉默,批評一位法律教授在本周彈劾聽證會中提及了她的小兒子——巴倫。

U.S First Lady Melania Trump has stayed quiet throughout the impeachment investigation into her husband, U.S President Donald Trump, but she broke her silence Wednesday to criticize a law professor who mentioned the Trumps’ son, Barron, during an impeachment hearing this week.

在聽證會上,來自斯坦福大學的法律教授Pamela Karlan被要求回答一個問題——特朗普作為總統,與國王有何區別?

Pamela Karlan, a Stanford University law professor, had made a point earlier during the House Judiciary Committee's hearing about impeachment in response to a question from Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, on how Trump as president was different from a king.

Karlan說道,國王不會有過錯,因為他們說的話就是法律;然而特朗普說憲法第二條賦予他想做什么就去做的權力,卻是錯誤的。

Karlan said kings could do no wrong because their word was law. But Karlan said Trump was wrong to say that Article 2 of the Constitution allows him to do anything he wants.

作為彈劾特朗普的支持者,Karlan表示:“依照憲法,(美國)沒有貴族頭銜,所以總統特朗普只能給孩子命名巴倫(Barron),而不能讓他成為男爵(Baron)。”

"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," said Karlan, who is in favor of President Donald Trump being impeached.

顯然,Karlan在這里用了一個“諧音梗”,不過梅拉尼婭卻不買賬。

她在推特上給出了言辭激烈的回應:“一個未成年孩子應該有隱私權,并且遠離政治。Karlan,你應該為自己用一個孩子來表達憤怒且偏頗的公開迎合性言論而感到羞愧。”

"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," the first lady said in a fiery tweet
 


Karlan隨即為自己的言論道歉:我為此前對于總統兒子的言論道歉,這是我的錯誤,我也希望總統能夠道歉,因為很明顯他也做錯了一些事,不過我仍然為我的言論感到抱歉。

Karlan later apologized for her remark, saying, "I want to apologize for what i said earlier about the President's son, it was wrong of me to do that. I wish the President would apologize, obviously, for the things he's done that's wrong, but I do regret having said that."

CNN報道中指出,這是當前針對特朗普的彈劾請求以及調查過程開始以來,梅拉尼婭的首次公開發聲。至于這條推文,白宮發言人Stephanie Grisham則表示,她認為梅拉尼婭已經講得很明白了。

It was the first time Melania has weighed in publicly on the ongoing impeachment inquiry and investigation into her husband. Asked about her tweet, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham told CNN, "I think Mrs. Trump's tweet speaks very clearly for itself."

美國副總統彭斯同樣批判Karlan的言論:彈劾聽證會的水平再創新低,我聽了今天的聽證會,一名民主黨人士居然用總統與第一夫人的13歲兒子為其黨派的彈劾案辯護。民主黨應該感到羞愧,到此為止吧。

Vice President Mike Pence also slammed Karlan's comment. "The impeachment hearings today reached a new low," Pence said. "I just heard at the hearing today, one of the Democrats' witnesses actually used the President and first lady's 13-year-old son to justify their partisan impeachment. Democrats should be ashamed. Enough is enough."

總統特朗普本人則是轉發了一些人對Karlan的批評:



也有人不同意該批評Karlan,因為她雖然提及了總統兒子的名字,但是并無惡意:



也有網友認為,特朗普的政策造成美國邊境還有大批孩子與父母分離,為什么人們卻對于這些事無動于衷,轉而關注一個諧音梗。
 


實際上,美國總統的未成年子女很少會被指摘,對于華盛頓方面來說,讓小孩子遠離政治紛爭一直以來都是一項傳統。

While minor children of presidents have occasionally received criticism and scrutiny, it's long been a tradition in Washington to keep first children out of the political fray.

此前,梅拉尼婭就要求媒體及其他公眾人物不要提及13歲的巴倫。去年12月,梅拉尼婭曾對福克斯新聞表示,巴倫應該“遠離”媒體。

Mrs. Trump has asked media and other public figures to refrain from bringing up her 13-year-old son. Last December, the first lady told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that Barron should be “off limits” for the media.

“(媒體接觸)確實讓我生氣,因為孩子應該遠離媒體。我保護他,希望盡可能給他一個正常的生活。現在雖然不是(正常的生活),但是我希望可以讓他有一個應得的童年生活。”

“It does make me angry, because children should be off limits,” she said then.“I protect him, and I want to give him as normal a life as possible,” she continued. “This is not a normal life, but I like to protect him and give him the childhood he deserves.”
