Former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton talked about how she is working to “erode” white privilege out of her children during a conversation with Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) about voting rights in America. The conversation was part of a “Women for Biden” online event.

“You know, congresswoman, certainly my children are young, but we believe they’re young but still citizens so we talked about the ratification of the 19th Amendment and women’s equality day but how fundamentally incomplete that victory was,” Clinton said.

According to the former first daughter, the 19th Amendment was a “flawed victory” because “indigenous and black women didn’t have the right to vote” and there are some states, like Alaska, that make it difficult for Native American women to vote.

“You know, 40 percent of Americans with disabilities report that they have real challenges voting in person. And so in states where there haven’t been, kind of, no-excuse absentee voting or where there hasn’t been the introduction of early voting yet, you know, it still isn’t, kind of, easy, fair or equal for many Americans to vote,” Clinton explained.“And I think it’s really important that my children understand that. And I think it’s particularly important that they understand that as white children of privilege, because I want them to erode that privilege throughout their lives to ensure more people are enfranchised and that equality isn’t just an ideal.”

Pressley praised Clinton’s desire to teach her children.

“You’re really modeling that which my mother certainly believed, which is that a parent is a child’s first teacher. And I so appreciate that you’re providing that full education, because we know that often there is a revisionist history or a sanitizing or filtering of history that does not tell the whole story,” Pressley said.

According to the congresswoman, it’s parents’ conversations with their kids that would ensure that “we get to truth and reconciliation and we fortify ourselves to continue to do the work to make sure we dismantle those barriers that still exist.” She said that she believes there are still “barriers” as well as “voter suppression and intimidation tactics” still taking place today.

It’s always amazing to listen to people like Chelsea Clinton talk about wanting to erode “white privilege” out of her kids. How do you talk to kids who are 4 and 5-years-old about this idea that they’re given so many more things or opportunities because of the color of their skin? Kids at that age don’t understand the concepts of racism or white privilege. For the most part, kids at that age are focused on playing outside – or in 2020, playing on their tabIets. Kids tend to see past race and gender. They’re innocent. They haven’t been exposed to the harsh realities of the world. They have a brighter outlook on things. They’re pure in that sense.

Chelsea Clinton grew up with luxuries most people can only dream of. It’s not like she’s lived a “normal” life. It’s not like she knows what it’s like to struggle to pay the bills, find a job or put food on the table for her kids. She was automatically put up on a pedestal and given more opportunities because of her last name, being related to the former president and growing up in politics.

It’s hard to take this kind of thing seriously from someone who has lived the majority of their life in national politics. It might come off slightly more effective if the Democrats used someone that’s a little more “normal” and a little less of a washed up political celebrity.

Hillary as Sec State kept Nigeria off the Terrorist watch list when BOKO was expanding to get a Billion Dollar donation, BOKO proceeded to slaughter entire villages and took 500 'Our Girls', raped, sexually disfigured, sold into slavery. Tell me again just how much the Clinton's cared about 'privileged white people'.. or under privileged black people. The Clintons care about themselves. When the HIV was expanding greatly, Faucci was telling us 10% of America was going to die, Faucci directed research, the HIV drugs never solved anything, Bill Clinton's brother sold into Africa, and Nigeria, the HIV drugs... watered down...................... tell us again how the Clintons deal with 'White Privilege'...... the Clintons are only concerned with the Privileges they have amassed. If only media would expose the massive corruption of the Clintons we would be rid of the Clintons.

Uh, there is a piece of legislation called ADA that makes accommodations for the Disabled. Including voting. Did you personally go to Alaska to find this little Butt Nugget lie from NA women? You could've asked Sarah Palin about that. Oh wait. Your kind never talks to the other side for fear of facts. “You’re really modeling that which my mother certainly believed, which is that a parent is a child’s first teacher. And I so appreciate that you’re providing that full education, because we know that often there is a revisionist history or a sanitizing or filtering of history that does not tell the whole story,” Pressley said. Congresswoman Uncle Fester her mother said it took a village to raise a child. That means a whole lot of "first teachers" who "revise or sanitize history".

I don’t understand the hostility of the replies here. Someone with a background growing up in white privilege is talking about how she explains white privilege to her children, who are growing up in a similarly privileged background. Rather than just spoiling them and having them expect entitlements, she is raising their consciousness about a situation they may just take for granted and not really understand. And for this she is castigated? I’ve always understood that when one is given much, much is expected of her, or him. Seems to me that she’s trying to impart this to her children.

This article would be funny if it wasn't to pathetic. Whoever said crime don't pay has never met the Clinton's ! This includes their daughter who learned from the best on how to steal and stay out of jail. Why no mention of black privilege? There really is such a thing.

Oh please, is this a serious article?? If so it looks like mental illness runs in the Clinton family, her mother can't get over her loss of the 2016 election and Chelsea believes in bad parenting, leave children out of politics!!

Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

Published

on

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

“I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

“[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

“I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

“I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence

Published

on

President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

Published

on

The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

“The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

“During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

“In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

“The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
