Clinton, Chelsea

« Back to Glossary Index

(born February 27, 1980 in Little Rock, Arkansas) The white privileged daughter of (supposedly) former US President Bill Clinton and former First Lady, and later Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. However, there was evidence to suggest that Bill Clinton was not the birthfather to Chelsea, as he admitted that, due to coming down with the measles as an adult, he was left sterile and “shooting blanks”, and that her actual birth father was Webster Hubbell.[2][3] Bill Clinton has never released his medical records to affirm or deny his condition.

Clinton labeled climate change an “individual outrage” that was interconnected with women’s health and child marriage.[86] She has stated that we only have three years to get climate change “under control.” She believes “LGBTQ issues should be a major focus for human rights advocates this century.”[88] She has stressed “more progress in combating bullying of gay youths” and that political dialogue is insufficient.[89] Clinton has publicly thanked[90] and donated to[91] the controversial Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) for their “ongoing vigilance and shining a light” on alleged right-wing “hate.”[92] A vocal supporter of abortion, Clinton has also proclaimed that it is “important that people do everything they can to protect Planned Parenthood.”[93]

A book by Roger Stone and Robert Morrow, “The Clintons’ War on Women,” took the story to a new level – naming the biological father as Webb Hubbell, Hillary Clinton’s partner at the Little Rock Rose Law Firm and, later, associate attorney general of the U.S. in the Clinton administration. Morrow confronts Chelsea Clinton about the story at an Austin, Texas, book-signing event at which she was promoting her children’s book, “It’s Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired, & Get Going.”

“Hey, Chelsea,” Morrow asked as he approached Chelsea signing books. “Has your mother ever told you you’re the daughter of Webb Hubbell and not Bill Clinton?” “I’m so proud to be my parents’ daughter,” Chelsea answered, without specifying the identity of the parents of whom she was proud to be the daughter. When asked specifically about the accusation that he was Chelsea Clinton’s biological father, Hubbell responded: “No comment.”

An exhaustive investigation by The National ENQUIRER obtained “touch DNA” samples from both Chelsea and Webb Hubbell, samples that were turned over to a nationally recognized laboratory that specializes in paternity testing, and the lab result were declared “inconclusive.”

In a series of pro-Clinton infomercials hosted by MTV entitled Choose or Loose,[4] her father promised young people that he would send Chelsea to a public high school in Washington D.C. and stressed the importance of elected officials leading by example to restore confidence in America’s public schools. Upon election, the Clinton’s chose to segregate Chelsea in the rich and white-dominated exclusive Sidwell Friends school in Washington.

Her life growing up in the White House was quiet in comparison to those of other presidential children, as the Clinton’s imposed a ban on media reporting[5] on Chelsea’s life and activities so as to shield her from the resulting intrusion. Other than flunking her driver license test, Chelsea sparked little attention. She also at least once derogatorily referred to the Secret Service as pigs, and inferred when confronted on this that both her parents referred to them as such.[6] In the later years of her father’s presidency, as her mother sought election to the Senate, Chelsea assumed some of the hosting duties of the First Lady, filling in for Hillary while she was away.

In 1997, Clinton enrolled at Stanford University where she graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in History in 2001.[18] [19] She then attended Oxford University where in 2003 she received a Masters in philosophy.[20] In 2010, she completed her Masters in Public Health from Columbia University[21] and in 2011 got a doctorate in international relations again from Oxford .[22]

After Hillary Clinton’s loss to Barack Obama,[11] the Clinton family threw their support behind the Illinois senator, and Chelsea introduced her mother as the keynote speaker at the 2008 Democratic National Convention. In December of that year, her mother was nominated by Obama to be the next Secretary of State.

NBC put Chelsea on its payroll as a network correspondent in November 2011, when it was still 49 percent owned by General Electric, a major defense contractor and contributor to the Clinton Foundation.[12] Her mother as Secretary of State at this same time approved numerous arms sales for General Electric to foreign nations. Chelsea later went on to head up the Clinton Foundation.

Like other veterans of the Clinton White House, such as George Stephanopoulos, Chelsea Clinton was hired without any special talent or professional training[13] for a reported salary of $600,000 per year.[14]

In 2010 Clinton married investment banker Marc Mezvinsky in a lavish wedding with 400 guests at a cost of $5 million.[15] Mezvinsky is the son of Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky who sacrificed her congressional career when she was pressured by the Democratic leadership to switch her vote (which she did in tears) for passage of Bill Clinton’s tax increases.[16] After six months, Mezvinsky quit his job and abandoned Clinton in her Manhattan apartment to enjoy a three-month separation in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.[17]

Political Activism

Clinton’s personal political presence began during the 2008 election period when she worked as a campaign liaison on behalf of her mother Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.[73] She was dispatched to represent Hillary on the trail and claimed to have attended “more than 400 events in 40 states over the course of five months.”[74] During the 2008 campaign, Chelsea was noted for giving scripted performances and avoiding public questions, even avoiding a question from a 9 year old, because she refused to talk to the “press.”[75]

During her mother’s 2016 presidential campaign, Chelsea Clinton took on a larger role where was expected to be “in the center of the room and commanding an audience in a way she may not have wanted to eight years ago.”[76]

As Politico wrote in 2015, “The message was clear: Hillary Clinton is running—and running right along with her is Chelsea.”[77] Per Politico’s report, the “invisible hand of Chelsea” shaped almost every significant decision her parents made. [78] Chelsea acknowledged her role in Hillary Clinton’s decision-making saying, “We talk about everything,” and “have had kind of a conversation about what we think the challenges, the opportunities, the solutions are.” [79]

This speculation is only fueled by Chelsea’s increased political activism. Prior to the election of Donald Trump, Chelsea Clinton was noted for wonky Twitter posts didn’t make waves and similarly didn’t draw much if any attention.[99] But in 2017, “in the wake of Hillary Clinton’s devastating electoral loss,” [100] Chelsea Clinton seemed “to have had a social media personality transplant” becoming the most vocal Clinton, attacking President Trump in a number of different ways. Clinton supporters suggest was Chelsea’s first foray into constituency building[101] for a potential future political run.[102] She has attended at least two protests in New York City since the election: a rally protesting Trump’s immigration executive orders and a Muslim solidarity rally. [103]
