America Rising Launches New Video: “A Strange Attack”
As Chelsea Clinton begins another week on the campaign trail, America Rising is launching a new video documenting her first week on the hustings and all the vicious negative attacks and mudslinging that came with it.
Last week, Chelsea Clinton debuted on the trail by tearing into Sen. Bernie Sanders, saying, “Sen. Sanders wants to dismantle Obamacare, dismantle the CHIP program, dismantle Medicare, and dismantle private insurance.”
This attack against Sanders has been widely panned by the mainstream media as untrue. PolitiFact even rated Chelsea for the first time giving this statement a “mostly false.”
Bloomberg’s John Heilemann said of Chelsea’s attack, “This attack is not just strange politically because the Democratic base is with Bernie Sanders on single payer or Medicare-for-all. But it’s just so disingenuous.”
The Huffington Post’s Sam Stein called Chelsea’s statement “misleading,” and added that he felt a “journalistic responsibility” to say so. The panel on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” said Chelsea “misrepresented” and “distorted” Sanders’ stance on the issue.
It remains to be seen which Clinton family member will turn out to be a bigger liability for Secretary Clinton, but it’s safe to say that so far both Bill and Chelsea’s deployments can only be viewed as catastrophic failures.
