Chelsea Clinton issues classy response to troll who mocked her looks

As a former first daughter, Chelsea Clinton has spent most of her life in the public eye. Unfortunately, that means she has considerable experience in being subjected to the occasional cruel taunt from a conservative talk show host or Twitter troll.

It was the latter that lobbed a nasty insult Clinton’s way  Wednesday. It seems that a self-identified Colts fan with 20 followers had something to say about the appearance of the 38-year-old daughter of Hillary and Bill Clinton.

Rather than ignore the barb, Clinton took the opportunity to show grace under fire. Behold, her dignified response:

Clinton’s followers chimed in with their own positive spins on the situation.

They also praised Clinton, a mother of two who works for the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative, for “going high.”

Clinton is of course not the only presidential daughter to field some abuse lately. On Wednesday night Full Frontal host Samantha Bee made a public apology for “crossing the line” by calling Ivanka Trump a “feckless c***” during last week’s show.
