REP. SHEILA JACKSON LEE: What comparisons, Professor Karlan, can we make between kings that the framers were afraid of and the President’s conduct today?
PROFESSOR PAMELA KARLAN: So, kings could do no wrong because the king’s word was law. And contrary to what President Trump has said, Article II does not give him the power to do anything he wants. I’ll just give you one example that shows you the difference between him and a king, 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.
