Where Clinton, oatmeal and toenail clippings meet…
Never known as a bastion of conservative thought, Vanity Fair magazine has published quite the scathing article on Chelsea Clinton.
Penned by Vanity Fair politics and policy contributor T.A. Frank, the refreshingly honest piece entitled “PLEASE, GOD, STOP CHELSEA CLINTON FROM WHATEVER SHE IS DOING” leaves little to the imagination exactly where he’s coming from.
But for those in a stunned state of denial, Frank’s sub-title pretty much brings any doubt to an abrupt end, “The last thing the left needs is the third iteration of a failed political dynasty.”
Despite Chelsea’s momma’s failed run at the presidency, Crooked Hillary made a point of slamming something she and her ilk refer to as “white privilege”.
To his credit, Frank displayed something all to rare within the establishment media – a sense of integrity.
As Frank cited, Chelsea somehow managed to pull in a rather nice paycheck at her rather short two-and-a-half-year stint of employment at the Peacock Network;
Chelsea, people were quietly starting to observe, had a tendency to talk a lot, and at length, not least about Chelsea. But you couldn’t interrupt, not even if you’re on TV at NBC, where she was earning $600,000 a year at the time. “When you are with Chelsea, you really need to allow her to finish,” Jay Kernis, one of Clinton’s segment producers at NBC, told Vogue. “She’s not used to being interrupted that way.”
Sounds perfect for a dating profile: I speak at length, and you really need to let me finish. I’m not used to interruptions.
Frank also cited the fawning press Clinton started to receive starting in 2008. Or as Frank refers to them, “puff pieces”.
Again, to his credit, Mr. Frank is far friendlier in his descriptions of the now Mrs. Marc Mezvinsky than I could ever.
Case in point would be the very diplomatic fashion he described reading just about anything ever penned by Chelsea;
What comes across with Chelsea, for lack of a gentler word, is self-regard of an unusual intensity. And the effect is stronger on paper. Unkind as it is to say, reading anything by Chelsea Clinton—tweets, interviews, books—is best compared to taking in spoonfuls of plain oatmeal that, periodically, conceal a toenail clipping.
Take the introduction to It’s Your World (Get Informed! Get Inspired! Get Going!). It’s harmless, you think. “My mom wouldn’t let me have sugary cereal growing up (more on that later),” writes Chelsea, “so I improvised, adding far more honey than likely would have been in any honeyed cereals.” That’s the oatmeal—and then comes the toenail:
I wrote a letter to President Reagan when I was five to voice my opposition to his visit to the Bitburg cemetery in Germany, because Nazis were buried there. I didn’t think an American president should honor a group of soldiers that included Nazis. President Reagan still went, but at least I had tried in my own small way.
Regarding the less-than erudite tweet recently posted by the former First Daughter, conservative icon Rush Limbaugh gently reminded young Chelsea, “RUSH: And remember Chelsea Clinton, Abe Lincoln once said, ‘Do not believe everything you read on the internet.’ Famous Lincoln quote.”
Please tell me this is photoshopped. Please? https://t.co/WezDQx6IvT
