I don't mean to pick on the child. She's not responsible for the circumstances of her birth, but when her mother claims she wants to be the champion of "everyday Americans" this does become a bit hard to take.

"The daughter of former President Bill Clinton and ex-secretary of state Hillary Clinton explained in a recent interview why she left lucrative professions and opted for working with her family’s philanthropic foundation. ‘I was curious if I could care about (money) on some fundamental level, and I couldn’t,’ she said."

What are you talking about? She is a highly paid political annalist for NBC and almost 40 for crying out loud. She is more than fair game to slam for being a stupid idiot. Hell. She also is threatening us with a run for office herself.

Yes, we all know how she championed those four guys in Benghazi, the White House travel office staff, and all of Bill's other women.

"You can fool some of the people all of the time..."

It's relatively easy to not care about money when you have never had to worry about having enough to meet your basic needs.

I's like to see Chelsea live solely on the salary of a cashier at some fast food place for a year.

She's never had to think about money. You don't miss your water, 'til your well run dry....

"It's relatively easy to not care about money when you have never had to worry about having enough to meet your basic needs."

Quite right, Algernonpj. When I first added this I had to leave off a comment by Lars Larson, where I got it, because I had to leave the premises quite suddenly (stupid bookie and his money demands).

Lars: "$600k part time job. $3M wedding. $10M condo. Kinda easy NOT to care about money from that vantage point."
