Chelsea Clinton Rips President In Scathing Letter Published In Teen Vogue

The scars from the 2016 presidential election run deep, and the general political environment remains toxic as a result. President Donald Trump’s stunning victory over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton was the culmination of the most contentious political campaign in modern history, and there are days when it seems like the campaign will never end. After most elections, most folks will accept the results and move on with their lives. That’s not happening this time around, and there’s no sign that the environment is going to get better anytime soon.

As you would imagine, the scars of the election are running pretty deep in the Clinton family. What looked like a sure thing turned into a monumental upset, and that’s obviously not the easiest thing to come to terms with. For confirmation of that, we need to look no further than this scathing letter from Chelsea Clinton that was published in Teen Vogue. While it was dubbed as a letter to her two children, it’s quite clear she had a lot of other things to get off of her chest.

As AOL shares, Chelsea started off by talking about the things that her mother stood for when her name was on the ballot, but she quickly shifted over to contrast that with the man that ultimately won the election and moved into the White House.

"She spoke about all she hoped and planned to do to lift up everyone’s lives and opportunities. Then she talked about people with racist, sexist, xenophobic, homophobic views that then-candidate Trump emboldened and validated," she wrote, later adding: "In 2016, your grandmother was equally fighting for the people who agreed with her and those who didn’t — but she wasn’t afraid to call out bigoted views for what they were."

Chelsea would go on to explain that her mother "repeatedly called out then-candidate Trump and others for their hate speech."

"We have a president who excuses neo-Nazis, who wants to ban members of our military because of who they are and keep out immigrants because of who they worship," she added.

She was just getting warmed up at this point, as she would proceed to throw shade on Trump for seemingly everything that popped into her head while she was writing the letter.

"We have a president who denies science, whether it’s vaccines or climate change or evidence that, yes, health insurance helps save lives; that’s personal, too, because it’s about protecting our public health today and in the future,” she continued. “The marked rise in bullying in our schools, with some kids citing President Trump’s words to taunt others? That’s personal, too."

After making it crystal clear that she’s no fan of POTUS, she would close things up on a positive note.

“Everything that motivated me to work so hard for your futures throughout 2016 is still true today. Arguably more so," she concluded.

While this was positioned as if it were a letter to her own children, it came across more along the lines of one of dozens of op-ed pieces that make the rounds during the course of the average day. We certainly understand that Chelsea is completely opposed to Trump’s presidency, but the campaign trail-style rhetoric seems misplaced in a letter aimed at children.
