It’s a little like the old crass joke that asks “Are you the only person in your family who eats dung sandwiches.” Sometimes it’s best to let these things go.

Chelsea Clinton would have been well served to heed that advice after Fox News analyst Lisa Boothe suggested on air that Clinton’s mother would “literally sell” her to win the White House. Boothe also referred to the elder Clinton as “the most soulless woman on the planet.”

But not one to pass up the limelight, Chelsea responded in what she must have thought was a mature and reasoned manner, tweeting out:

It should be noted that Chelsea did not confirm or deny that her mother is indeed “soulless,” but let’s just assume she would argue that point as well.

But as for Boothe’s other claim, let’s consider. Hillary was willing to sell out the American people to Russia by approving a uranium deal in exchange for Clinton Foundation donations. And she sold out four American lives in Benghazi in order to reign in political damage during her time at the State Department.

After Chelsea Clinton posted her defense of her mother, some social media users openly wondered why she would feel the need to respond at all:

The fact that Hillary overlooked her husband’s serial sexual affairs for the sake of her political ambitions shows that Chelsea wasn’t always their top concern.

Maybe she just needs a reminder that neither one of her parents are particularly “good people.” She can just ask Juanita Broaddrick if she needs a third-party opinion.

To be fair, there was that one time when Hillary put Chelsea above all else. That was her daughter’s wedding.

Mrs. Clinton spent $3 million wedding, prompting to Forbes to wonder aloud “how the people of Haiti or the Gulf might use even half of that sum.”

Still, it’s proof of Hillary’s love for Chelsea. Right?
