Last week at the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, President Trump took nepotism to a new level when he had his daughter sit in for him after he left the room during “Partnership with Africa, Migration and Health” discussions.
In the wake of a global backlash against him, Trump’s response is all too predictable. He is sidestepping his own unpresidential acts and miscalculations to defame his favorite targets on Twitter: the free press, Hillary Clinton, and Chelsea Clinton.
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!

Somehow, in posing the hypothetical situation, he seems to have forgotten that Chelsea is not just the daughter of a presidential candidate, she is the daughter of a president. Worse for Trump, Chelsea has the ability to respond to the president’s bogus accusations. (Below.)
In one perfect tweet, the former First Daughter destroyed Trump’s juvenile, ill-informed assault while still managing to show respect for the Office of the President of the United States.
Like Chelsea, we all hope Trump was not giving the country away, and we shudder to live in a reality where the President of the United States does not think twice before implying that he did.
Thank you, Chelsea Clinton, for continuing to be a voice for rational thought.
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
