To protect her mother from God knows what, Chelsea Clinton told a 9 year-old junior reporter to bug off. Ironically, the action aimed at preventing unwanted media scrutiny blew up in the face of the Clinton campaign, forcing them to answer to allegations of meanness.
Sydney Rieckhoff, a Cedar Rapids fourth grader and “kid reporter” for Scholastic News, has posed questions to seven Republican and Democratic presidential hopefuls as they’ve campaigned across Iowa this year. But when she approached the 27-year-old Chelsea after a campaign event Sunday, she got a different response.
“Do you think your dad would be a good ‘first man’ in the White House?” Sydney asked, but Chelsea brushed her question aside.
“I’m sorry, I don’t talk to the press and that applies to you, unfortunately. Even though I think you’re cute,” Chelsea told the pint-sized journalist.
The girl’s mother is a Hillary supporter, and she obediently brushed off the fracas.
“I like her position on family values and health care. And I think it’s time we have a female president,” Robyn Rieckhoff said.
And another one gets thrown under the bus in the name of the Clintonian “greater good”. Priceless.
