Chelsea Clinton ‘Deeply Saddened’ by Sexism in America: ‘We Can’t Take Progress for Granted’
By Daniel Nussbaum
Chelsea Clinton opened up about her political activism, Donald Trump’s presidency, the next chapter of the Clinton Foundation and her social media use in a wide-ranging interview Tuesday for the cover of Variety‘s “Power of Women New York” issue.
In an interview with the Hollywood trade’s New York bureau chief Ramin Setoodeh, the 37-year-old former First Daughter urged those who supported her mother — former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton — in the 2016 race to “raise your voice” and get up off the “sidelines” in the era of Trump.
“Everything that took you to the polls that day, hopefully takes you to the streets, takes you to social media, takes you into conversations at work, at home, wherever you may be — to talk about what’s really at risk in this moment,” Clinton told the outlet. “Because I think everything is at risk. Our fundamental rights, our fundamental security, are at risk.”
Clinton also said she was “not surprised” to see the sexism she says still exists in America when she was out stumping for her mother on the campaign trail. At the Women in the World summit this month, Hillary Clinton blamed misogyny among the American electorate for her election defeat.
“I’m deeply saddened,” Chelsea told Variety. “I think it’s important for us to realize we can’t take progress for granted. Progress has to be continually defended as well as advanced. I think about this multiple times a day.”
“It’s 2017, and we’re fighting again on fights that were settled a few years ago around gay rights, women’s reproductive health; fights to ensure we’re a country that’s always moving toward a more perfect union and not moving toward disunion, disunity, and segregation,” she added. “We’re really in peril of moving backward. That’s not what I want for my children and their generation.”
In the interview, Clinton also discussed her family’s Clinton Foundation, which came under intense scrutiny during the 2016 campaign over allegations of influence-peddling. The younger Clinton told Variety she became “frustrated” with the coverage of the foundation during the campaign, “because the facts didn’t seem sufficient to put [the lies] to rest.”
Still, Clinton said she is excited about the foundation’s “next chapter.”
“At its most distilled level, we try to make a positive, impactful, empowering difference in whatever ways we can,” she said “It’s the story of any of our programmatic work over time, whether we’re thinking about global health, climate change, the work we’ve done for women and girls. That will continue to be our story in the future.”
Clinton also used the interview to again throw cold water on rumors she may soon run for public office herself: “I am not running for public office,” she said.

The media is trying to do everything in it’s power to establish a Trump-Russian connection but have conveniently forgotten Hillary Clinton’s Uranium One Co. sale to Russia. Uranium One was holding 20 pct. of US uranium.

Evelyn Farkas, the libtard who admitted to working to undermine the incoming President, to spying on him and his staff and to committing what are likely seditious felonies in the process, is a longtime political tool, as was noted in the introduction by Mika Brzezinski.
Farkas was also somehow involved in a WMD commission, though Mika’s mumbling made it difficult to ascertain the specifics. It doesn’t really matter, she’s a hopeless libtard who went too far and, enamored with the bright lights and Mika’s star power, spilled the beans on the entire illicit Obama Lynch Brennan operation. Every good Democrat scandal needs a name to identify it, how about the farkas fracas for this one?
The Democrats and their partners in crime at MSNBC were laying out their plans for the next unfounded attack on the President, the “maybe his taxes” scheme, since the maybe Russia scheme is taking them nowhere. Senator Stabenow (D-MI) offers up the innuendos, all the Democrats need to make demands of the President, after the scripted softball is served up by commie Mika. She details a plot by Democrats to persuade the Finance Committee in the Senate and Ways and Means in the House to order the review, supposedly private, although that’s a secret no Democrat could keep, with the option to then force the public release if they could pull it off.
Once again, the reason for the Democrat attack – Russia, the well that never runs dry for unsubstantiated pretexts. If they’re really that concerned with Russia, maybe AG Sessions will impanel a grand jury to investigate the business dealings of John Podesta, Clinton’s Campaign Chairman andObama adviser, who was given $35 million by his Russian business partner, Vladimir Putin. Maybe they’ll look in to over $100 million that Clinton got as compensation for selling Russia our Uranium. Like Peter Schweizer, author of Clinton Cash said, why investigate fake Russian collusion with Trump when the real deal of Clinton Obama and Podesta is so ripe for the picking?
Commie Mika eventually gets back to Farkas, who unbelievably opens her big mouth in almost confession describing the domestic spying on the president and the sedition that she and many of her colleagues in the deep state were and likely still are engaged in.
It’s one thing to hear the audio, but watching her as she says what she does is stunning. Frakas clearly believes she’s above the law and that the President is somehow beneath her, that she’s in some way justified in doing what she and the others in her subversive clique were doing. The hypocrisy of these Democrat hacks is breathtaking. Hillary Clinton sold American uranium and secrets to Russia and was in the influence peddling business. There’s no evidence that Trump did anything improper, they simply want a sanctioned fishing expedition. It’s because of trash like Brzezinski and her RINO comrade Joe that they get away with their dishonest treachery.
Attorney General Sessions needs to impanel this and the many other needed grand juries right away. There’s a lot of criminals in DC to deal with, but that’s what happens when you’re draining the swamp. Please get started soon, Mr. Attorney General. This could take a while.
