Z: You know, including patriotism, helping our military, lowering folks’ taxes, lowering unemployment for minorities……..degrading? I think not.
Clinton, a philanthropist and the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, tore into Trump when asked about his planned July visit to Britain during an interview published Saturday in The Guardian.
“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,” Clinton said.
Z: Yes, Chelsea, if you lived in Britain you would protest because Europe is where American lefties go to talk tough and protest all things American, like her father did years ago…while I cried watching him live in Paris…weeping at the fact that any past president would so highly insult America by insulting the new sitting president, Bush.
Clinton, 38, also told the newspaper that she’s been the target of “vitriol” for as long as she could remember and credited Trump for prompting her decision to start firing back at people who say “hateful” things to her.
Z: “Vitriol?” The First Daughter who the media was warned not to talk about? The one who married well, has two healthy children, and you hear so little about? What vitriol??
“The reason, now, I no longer ignore it when people say hateful things to me on the street or on social media is, I think we have to shine a light,” Clinton said.
Z: and I’m thinking you might want to consider the criticism.
“I think those of us who have platforms to do that have to say this is wrong and unacceptable, so we don’t normalize it but try to detoxify what has been unleashed,” she said. “Because if we don’t, we leave a vacuum. And I think the darkness fills that vacuum.”
Z:..Um…what? Can you repeat that?!!
Trump has continued to call for Hillary Clinton, his 2016 election opponent, to be jailed for her e-mail practices as secretary of state, even though the FBI almost two years ago concluded no charges were warranted. The president has also mocked women’s appearances and promoted bigoted views.
Z: No charges were warranted because the FBI thought she hadn’t INTENT…they can read Clinton’s mind, apparently? Hillary did all of that and she’s free? And Chelsea blames Trump??
“I think that the way that our president and many people around him have not only mainstreamed hate, but mainlined it, is so deeply dangerous,” Clinton said.
Z:..no, it’s not dangerous, but it’s a great platform for the lefties before midterm elections…to spread fear and hate toward this president and more than half of America who share his beliefs, which are neither hateful or deeply dangerous. Just factual.
“I think the wreckage that we’re seeing at this moment is one that will, I hope, be repaired on the policy standpoint when we elect Democrats,” she continued. “But I think we will still then have work to do on repairing the tone in our country, the exposure of the real racist and sexist, homophobic, Islamophobic and anti-Semitic feeling which is on the rise in our country ― a rot that has been exposed.”
Z: I’m surprised she’d call her mother ‘a rot’ but I agree.
Clinton praised the “hugely important” First Amendment, but said “freedom of speech” doesn’t mean there should be a “freedom of consequences.”
Z: “hugely important” until a Conservative wants to speak at an American university, then free speech is simply not allowed.
“Sure, you should not be in prison because you said something racist,” Clinton said. “But you also shouldn’t be able to run for president. And yet here we are.”
Z: and I think we are at the beginning of the Chelsea Clinton road to being the first woman president. GOD FORBID.
