According to Chelsea Clinton, 36, the daughter of the Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's rhetoric is "far more troubling" than her father's sexual misdeeds, which include accusations of infidelity, sexual assault and rape.
"After the debate, Donald Trump said he was 'proud' that he didn’t mention your father’s infidelity out of respect for you. What was your reaction to that?" asked feminist Cosmopolitan Magazine.
Chelsea said Trump was using her father's philandering escapades, which includes at least 14 different women accusing the former president of sexual assault, as "a distraction from his inability to talk about what’s actually at stake in this election and to offer concrete, comprehensive proposals."
She continued: "And candidly, I don’t remember a time in my life when my parents and my family weren’t being attacked, and so it just sort of seems to be in that tradition, unfortunately. And what I find most troubling by far are Trump’s — and we talked about this when you interviewed me the night before the Iowa caucus — are Trump’s continued, relentless attacks on whole swaths of our country and even our global community: women, Muslims, Americans with disabilities, a Gold Star family," said Chelsea. "I mean, that, to me, is far more troubling than whatever his most recent screed against my mom or my family [is]."
