Not the Onion: "Just like her mother, Chelsea Clinton never gets a break"

LA Times Ed:  This week, Variety magazine announced that it would honor former first daughter Chelsea Clinton at its Women in Power luncheon with a “Lifetime achievement award.” The news spread quickly among both Trump supporters and left-leaning Clinton detractors who believe that the family’s tone-deafness cost them the election. Chelsea accepting such an award at the tender age of 37 confirmed the “out-of-touch elite” narrative once and for all.

And then “The Hill,” the D.C. outlet that had broken the news, clarified that Chelsea’s honor was not, as initially reported and gleefully reposted, for achievements over the span of her lifetime. Rather, it was an honor bestowed jointly by Variety and the television network Lifetime for her work promoting better eating habits for children. It’s a Lifetime achievement award, not a lifetime achievement award.

When it comes to accepting prizes for charitable contributions, Chelsea is in no way an outlier. Everyone in her income bracket has a shelf full of honors. Luncheon ceremonies are a way to publicly thank big-name benefactors, get them to show up to the event, and therefore attract other donors and media interest. Ivanka Trump, for example — just picking someone at random here — is no stranger to vanity awards. She has been honored by organizations such as the European School of Economics and the Diamond Empowerment Fund’s GOOD Awards. (Tagline: “Diamonds do good.”)

But Chelsea, like her mother, never gets a break — unlike Ivanka and her father.

(It goes on and on, here is a Link to the rest, maybe you can stomach it)

Ever notice that leftists cannot stop handing each other awards and golden statues? It's really laughable, if you think about it.

It's not enough that wealthy leftists live in Ivory Tower Elitist bliss, no. They need to attaboy each other, non-stop.
Celebrate Chelsea and her so-called achievements and fake charitable giving. Yes please do.
oh but she helps wiminz and grrlz eat rightz. (I thought that was Michell Obama's deal?) yep, and she lives in a 10 million dollar Manhattan apartment and her hubby is the son of another criminal sleaze bag. oooo give her an award!

Her wedding and babies all expensed through Clinton Grift Inc. Quick - hand her another award!

Expedia pays her to do nothing - give her another award!

NBC paid her to do virtually nothing - snap snap - award please!

I think what the writer means is that Chelsey never gets a break... as in coffee breaks. Starbucks hasn't made a donation to her dads sham charity or something.

The pro-Clinton worshipers/ award-givers don't understand that most of America (right to left) suffer serious Clinton Fatigue.

"Tweeting pablum hardly rises to the level of “dissent.” And if the unaccomplished daughter of a President who left office almost two decades ago and of a two-time presidential loser, counts as “such a prominent Democratic figure,” then the Democrats have bigger worries than than who deserves the most “first-daughter hatred.”"

It's way too early for a Clinton Restoration. Clintons don't seem to realize that a sizable chunk of Dems want to see them retired -- just like many republicans wanted to see the Bush dynasty retired. Dems haven't had their internal revolution yet.

I'm coming around to the sickening realization that Trump will just be a four year timeout before the Cultural Marxists/Globalists will take over again and finish the job. I mean Trump isn't perfect, right? Apparently that will be enough for blue collar Pennsylvanians and Ohioans to sit on their hands while the usual subhumans vote the corruptocrats back into power.

At least the Bush dynasty wasn't a grifter set up. The Clintons entire enterprise depends on filling coffers from "donors" in return for favors.

My client's son said to me that he is surprised the Clintons haven't been assassinated by an angry "donor."

Amartel said...

I was thinking the same. People "donated" boatloads of money to the Clintons on the assumption that there was going to be political favors dealt back.

Think about it: Neither one of these grifters has ever held a real job since leaving private law practice (Shaddup) and yet their living it up in pricey neighborhoods, wearing very expensive clothes, jetting about privately, etc. Despite the fact that he's a dull disgusting anti-semite and probably a big ole genuwine authentic down home race/sexist to boot, at least Carter went back home and stayed there and at least Amy Carter generally keeps to herself. Living with dignity versus shameless grifting.

Well, she is a brood mare for the Left.

Resurrect Magda Goebbels to give her der Mutterkreuz.

Nobody gave me a job paying $65,000 to spend 30 minutes talking to college students.

I wonder if Mr. Chelsea Clinton ran that "Springtime for Greece" hedge fund with "The Producers" type accounting?

edutcher said...

I believe he did.

Radical Marxist Progressive Collectivists continue to live in lala land and marginalize themselves even further. So they give the first fuck-face a lifetime achievement award, because you know, she's done a lifetime of actual work that should be recognized for doing something, somewhere, at some time, that benefited someone other than herself. Gosh, I wonder what it could be. I mean, that's the non-presidential equivalent of giving her a Nobel Prize for Peace like was done for Obama right after he was inaugurated for simply existing.
