If you didn’t think it sucked to be a Clinton before, today’s quote should go far in changing your mind. It’s tough enough running a criminal enterprise and running for president, as Hillary Clinton learned this past year. But when your offspring assumes a holier-than-thou posture and attempts to read the riot act to an admittedly vile creature, she is opening herself up to reminders about her own stained lineage.

The back story in a nutshell begins with a remark Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte made last Friday that included a “joke” about raping women. The comment generated a firestorm of criticism. But one of the reactions was by former first daughter Chelsea Clinton, who tweeted out the curt message “Not funny. Ever.”

Duterte responded on Tuesday:

These whores, they hear ‘rape.’ Like, like Chelsea, she slammed me. I was not joking, I was being sarcastic. Listen to the speech. I do not laugh at my own jokes.

I will tell her, when your father, the president of the United States, was f***ing Lewinsky and the girls in the White House, how did you feel? Did you slam your father?

The young Clinton may want to keep in mind an adage that advises, “When you dine with the devil, bring a long spoon.”
