During the presidential campaign Hillary Clinton’s lack of self-awareness was a marvel of modern selective memory. She’d slam Donald Trump for supporting things she herself had publicly supported and even accused him of being a misogynist eventhough she is married to a serial rapist. Being full of shit is one of the many reasons why Hillary lost the election, but it is part of the Clinton DNA and daughter Chelsea is carrying on the family tradition.
This all starts with an appearance by White House spokesperson Kellyanne Conway on MSNBC Thursday night. She was defending Donald Trump’s temporary travel restrictions from terrorist countries and said this to Chris Matthews:
“I bet it’s brand new information to people that President Obama had a six-month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalized and they were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre. It didn’t get covered,” said Conway.
Conway was referring to a pair of Iraqi refugees who were busted before they could implement a terrorist plot in Kentucky. Of course there was no “Bowling Green massacre” and liberals went crazy at Conway’s “alternative facts.” For her part, Conway recognized that she misspoke and corrected things.

“I meant to say ‘Bowling Green terrorists,’” wrote Conway.
This is not a big deal unless you are a lunatic liberal, and that brings us to Chelsea Clinton. She pounced on Conway’s slip with this condescending tweet:
Very grateful no one seriously hurt in the Louvre attack …or the (completely fake) Bowling Green Massacre. Please don’t make up attacks.

“Very grateful no one seriously hurt in the Louvre attack …or the (completely fake) Bowling Green Massacre. Please don’t make up attacks,” wrote Chelsea.
Take that, Kellyanne! Only assholes make up attacks, right? Oh wait, I just remembered that time that Chelsea’s mother Hillary made up a sniper attack in Bosnia.
While campaigning in 2008, Hillary told a story about how in 1996 she was met by “sniper fire” at a Bosnian airport.
“There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base,” said Hillary.
As it turns out, this incident never happened. It was an attack that Hillary made up completely. What really happened was a young Bosnian girl met Hillary at the airport and read her a poem. Chelsea was also present when this couplet-attack occurred.
The thing is, Kellyanne Conway mixed her words up and then corrected herself. It was an honest mistake with no intent to deceive. What Hillary Clinton did was a premeditated lie designed to score political points and give herself credibility as a tough foreign policy politician.
Hillary never even owned up to her lie, saying this about her fictitious brush with death:
“I say a lot of things — millions of words a day — so if I misspoke, that was just a misstatement,” said Hillary.
Is that the most Clinton way possible to explain a lie or what?
It’s nice to see the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Chelsea is just as full of shit as her mother. I suspect she will next tweet out some attacks on the Trump administration for using unsecured private e-mail servers and then accuse them of having Vince Foster killed.
