Over the weekend, when Donald Trump stepped out of a G20 conference to meet with a world leader privately, he had Ivanka Trump sit in for him, the same sinister Ivanka Trump who “tries to stay out of politics.” This didn’t sit well with many, because Trump is an autocrat, not a monarchist! Unqualified family members shouldn’t be allowed to sit in for the President; that’s a role for qualified henchman only.
Today, amidst his morning Twitter rant, Trump defended his decision. Sort of. I guess.
If Chelsea Clinton were asked to hold the seat for her mother,as her mother gave our country away, the Fake News would say CHELSEA FOR PRES!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 10, 2017
Is Trump implicitly pushing IVANKA FOR PRES!
At any rate, Chelsea Clinton saw the tweet and tried to parse his words for meaning.
Good morning Mr. President. It would never have occurred to my mother or my father to ask me. Were you giving our country away? Hoping not. https://t.co/4ODjWZUp0c— Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) July 10, 2017
Ah, Chelsea: A caustic yet effortless burn.
I’d offer up some reactions to Chelsea’s Tweet, but that would require also scrolling through reactions from the Pepe crowd, and there’s not enough coffee in the world …
