What kind of asshole approaches an author during a book signing for a kid’s book in a book store and asks — in front of other young people — “has your mother ever told you that you’re the daughter of Webb Hubbell, and not Bill Clinton?”
Robert Morrow — the leading conservative expert on assholery — that’s who.
Chelsea Clinton, however, is an unflappable pro. “I’m so proud to be my parent’s daughter.”
Morrow didn’t stop, however, despite staff in the store attempting to shuffle him away.
“Your book, you say it’s targeted towards teenage girls?”
Yes, Clinton responded. It’s “targeted to kids, actually, girls and boys.”
“Would you say Bill Clinton also targets teenage girls, except for sexual reasons?” Morrow asked.
Chelsea, ever polite and unfazed, responded in stride: “I would say my book is really resonating with kids. I was at the Ann Richards School earlier today and I’m so grateful that it’s resonating to the young girls and the young boys that I’ve been talking to across the country.”
How does she do that? How does she remain so calm? That is insane poise. Literally, insane. Something must have broken in her a long time ago, because a sane person would’ve flipped the table and beat that man over the head with a signed copy of the book until her autograph was imprinted on his forehead.
Chelsea Clinton’s approach was probably a better one, but I don’t think anyone would’ve held it against her if she had beat the man to within an inch of his petty, pathetic little life.
The book, by the way, is called It’s Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired & Get Going!, and you can purchase it now.
