Hillaryâ€™s Daughter Rips Republicans A New One,
Chelsea Clinton, daughter of former President Bill Clinton and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, sent out a message to supporters of her mother on Thursday morning via email. Here is the letter:
â€śWhen Republicans repeatedly get on stage at their national convention and toss attack after attack at my mom, calling her things Iâ€™d never say in front of my children — let alone on live TV — theyâ€™re talking about a caricature theyâ€™ve imagined, not the woman that I love and respect.
My mom is compassionate, kind, and hardworking — when I was growing up, it seemed like she could do anything. Sheâ€™d spend all day in court litigating on behalf of children and families, then come home and ask me over dinner what I learned in school, what my favorite part of my day was, and what I hoped would happenÂ tomorrow. And then she would sit with me while I did my homework or practiced the piano or worked on my science project.
xxxx, my mom has been fighting for everyday Americans for as long as I can remember. Sheâ€™s smart, sheâ€™s strong, and she never forgets who she is fighting for and why. I canâ€™t wait to vote for her as our next president — but she needs to know that weâ€™re with her right now.
During the Republican NationalÂ Convention/RNC,Â hateful speakers haveÂ encouragedÂ crowds to chantÂ â€śLock her up!â€ť and â€śGuilty!â€ť Theyâ€™ve alsoÂ called HillaryÂ â€śa piece of garbage.â€ť Ben Carson accused Hillary of beingÂ related toÂ Lucifer/Satan. Itâ€™s hard to imagine hearing such words being thrown at your mom, but itâ€™s happening.Â OfÂ course the hateful rhetoric isÂ something Hillary is used to hearing, as the Right has been after her for decadesÂ but continue to come up withÂ nothing.Â
