Chelsea and Ivanka were friends once. That would have been before ‘the incident’.
There was an election, and Ivanka’s dad beat Chelsea’s mom like a rented mule.
So much for the rule about not disrespecting the country or it’s leaders beyond the national border. Then again, look at the example her mother, and that other president have set.
She was in the UK, answering questions about herself, mostly, but about America, generally. She couldn’t resist taking shots at Trump and the Deplorables.
For instance, I ask if we’re now living through the best of feminist times, thanks to #MeToo, or the worst, thanks to Donald Trump, and her answer is at once impressive and thoughtful and mindnumbingly clunky. The heavily abridged version goes: “I think progress is possible and I think we should always feel a responsibility to that mandate in some ways, but that it’s not inevitable, and that it has to be both protected and advanced at every moment,” before digressing into a wordy, wonky lament about “the restrictions on a woman’s reproductive agency, and also on her ability to access reproductive health services that she thinks are right for her and often for her family, [and] that right is certainly not secure in our country.”
And then, quite unexpectedly, something changes. Feminist opinion is divided, I observe, between women who feel we should seize this #MeToo moment and go all out to tear down the patriarchy, and those who fear our rage will alienate support. Does Clinton still believe we should go high? She gazes at me in silence, as though making up her mind whether or not to become present, and when she opens her mouth it feels as if she is suddenly here.
“For me, maybe because I’ve had so much vitriol flung at me for as long as I can literally remember, people saying awful things to me even as a child, I’ve never found it productive, personally, to engage in that way. To retaliate with crass language or insult someone personally – I just don’t think I’m built that way.”
There it is. She thinks that because she uses the “formal” language of the Socia Justice Warrior, to slander innocent people, she’s somehow not being ‘insulting’.
Does the word ‘Deplorables’ ring any bells? Anyone who doesn’t agree with the Clintons — or vote with them — is automatically assumed to be… [insert a variety of bigotry accusations here].
Evidence be damned. The interview continued…
I tell her a lot of people in Britain are wondering how they should receive Trump’s visit in July. What’s her advice? “Well, I’ve been to multiple protests since the election. Charlotte’s been to at least three, maybe four. Aidan’s been to one. If I lived in Britain I would show up to protest, because I don’t agree with what he’s doing to degrade what it means to be an American.”
I do not believe that many of the people Trump has hired are qualified to do the jobs
We are meeting two days after a smiling Ivanka Trump opened the US embassy in Jerusalem, as dozens of Palestinians were massacred. I ask if Clinton feels any sympathy for the first daughter, obliged to do her father’s grotesque bidding, or considers her complicit. Her expression hardens.
“She’s an adult. She can make the choices for herself. I mean, she’s 36. We are responsible for our choices. In 2008 I was really proud to support my mum – but I disagreed with her fundamentally on a few things, particularly her then opposition to equal marriage rights for LGBTQ Americans. I never defended that position, because it wasn’t what I believed was the right thing to do.”

To degrade what it means to be an American…
Do you mean rescuing American hostages abroad, rather than letting them languish?
And did you catch the reference to the ‘Grotesque bidding’ of Trump? As opposed to, say, sending Susan Rice on the business of lying to the world — and especially the grieving families about some dumb obscure ‘anti-Muslim filmmaker’.
This is a British ‘interviewer’.
An interviewer who probably doesn’t lose a minute of sleep over the rest and imprisonment of Tommy Robinson.
Chelsea is bashing the President abroad. Just like her mother.
If they needed a reason to understand why her mom isn’t elected, here it is.
We knew the kind of people the Clintons are. They are exactly the kind of people that would go abroad and bash America. We just went through eight years of that. We wanted someone better than that leading our great nation.
Get it through your heads, it’s not us… it’s YOU.
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
