Clinton seems to not remember her parents have been called out for past statements on Muslims, LGBT individuals, and so-called “superpredators” over the years.
Chelsea Clinton took a veiled shot at President Trump and Republicans during the national conference for the Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere (CARE) on Monday.
“I completely agree that we have to always start by listening and calling out and giving a platform, and encouraging, particularly, those who are and have been structurally disempowered and often forcibly silenced,” Chelsea Clinton told the panel.
Chelsea Clinton continued: “I think though that we also have to recognize particularly at this moment that sexism is not an opinion, Islamophobia is not an opinion, racism is not an opinion, homophobia is not an opinion, jingoism is not an opinion.”
“So I think that we, in our posture of listening, also have to get comfortable with standing up and speaking out,” Chelsea Clinton concluded.
Chelsea Clinton’s comments regarding what are and are not opinions can only be interpreted as an attack aimed at Trump and Republicans, who many Democrats view as holding such beliefs.
Chelsea Clinton did not address these past controversies in her remarks.
