FLOTUS Friday: Clinton Rising Edition

“I think if someone were to step down or retire and I thought I could do a good job and it matched my talents, I’d have to think if it’s the right choice for me.” Chelsea Clinton told The Westchester County Journal News

Well let’s see Chels, maybe you could persuade your Mom that it’s time to “retire” and “step down.” You could slide right into the “most-disliked-Clinton-perpetually-running-for-president” role.  I’ll bet you could do a good a job at that, and I’m positive that it would match your talents – it’s in the genes.

Or if that’s not what you had in mind, I hear Megyn Kelly is also either “stepping down” or “retiring” from her talk show. Although you may have already squandered your one pity-hire from NBC in 2011 when they signed you to that $600,000 contract. Even normally Clinton-friendly media outlets were left scratching their heads over that move:

The disclosure raises the obvious question of NBC's goal in giving a person without any measurable journalistic or broadcasting experience or any particular public following a high-profile job and apparently paying her a top-echelon salary. The answer is equally obvious. Plainly, it was done to curry favor with the Clinton family. - LA Times

Of course that was before Chels showed us her journalistic chops in such hard hitting interviews as the one she did with the Geico Gecko.

That stunner was soon followed by her hard hitting interview of fellow vegan Stella McCartney, Paul McCartney’s fashion designer daughter. In that report Chelsea told us how Stella had “taken tremendous risks for her principles, including making clear to Gucci from the beginning she would not work with leather.” How brave! She and Chelsea single-handedly invented PETA approved handbags.

I guess that doing mindless celebrity interviews didn’t work out for either Chelsea or Megyn, but don’t worry, there’s still politics; that’s what most people who can’t do anything else end up doing. Just get yourself a nice carpet bag and go wherever you’re needed – and that applies to you too Megyn!

I don’t know how these people have the moxie to ridicule Melania Trump. How dare they?

Melania was already successful (and yes, rich) by her own volition before she met Donald J. Trump. Unlike both Chelsea and her mother she didn’t have to hitch her wagon to a ruthlessly ambitious politician in order to succeedClinton-Foundation-600-LA.
