Earlier this week, rumors spread that Chelsea Clinton was planning to follow in her parents’ footsteps by running for the New York Senate in 2020. Unfortunately for her, however, her political ambitions just got shut down hard before she even had a chance to get started…
The Washington Times reported that a group of liberal activists, most of whom supported Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders against Hillary Clinton in the primaries last year, have begun a “Never Chelsea” movement to try and stop the former first daughter from ever being elected to office.
“Chelsea needs to go away,” said Guinevere Boyd, a 49-year-old who attended a Democratic National Committee forum last weekend. “She has nothing to offer. She has said some horrible clueless things about progressives and progressive issues.”
Though Chelsea denied this week that she plans to run for the Senate in 2020, she has previously said that running for office is “absolutely” a possibility for her.
“The country does not have any more appetite for any Clintons,” said Mike Bender, 61, of Baltimore. “Enough is enough, and frankly I think the Clinton policies, going back to Bill, are what took the Democrats to the center and the right, and you can see what kind of enthusiasm that inspired.”
Many Sanders supporters are still angry that Chelsea once warned that the Vermont Senator’s health care plan would “empower Republican governors to take away Medicaid, to take away health insurance for low-income and middle-income working Americans.” Fact checkers have since exposed this as a blatant lie.
“It was a big lie,” Boyd said. “If she is going to be like that, who needs her? She doesn’t get it. She always had money. She is very out of touch with the American people. I don’t think she has really circulated with the American people since she was maybe 4 [years old] or something.”
With even liberals against her, Chelsea really does have no chance in the political world. SHARE this story if you think Chelsea Clinton should GIVE UP on politics!
