Former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton is preparing to release a new children’s book titled “She Persisted.”
The line comes from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell invoked a rule to silence Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) in the middle of a speech criticizing then-Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions. Sessions is now serving as Attorney General.
“Sen. Warren was giving a lengthy speech,” McConnell said. “She had appeared to violate the rule. She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”
Those last three words of McConnell’s became a rallying cry for liberal feminists. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tweeted her support of Warren writing “so must we all.”

And now, Chelsea is using those words to cash in, according to Entertainment Weekly. She’ll be telling the stories of 13 women who overcame immense resistance and pushback to accomplish great things. Some of the 13 women include Harriet Tubman, Helen Keller, Ruby Bridges, Sally Ride, Florence Griffith Joyner, Oprah Winfrey, and Sonia Sotomayor, amongst others.
While it’s a noble effort on Chelsea’s part to give young women role models to look up to, that’s only half the story.
The media seems driven to push Chelsea into the political spotlight, only four months after her mother blew an election that the Huffington Post put her as having a 98 percent chance of winning.
Publications like The Hill are doing their best to remind us what Chelsea is thinking and saying since Donald Trump was sworn into office and that we should know about it.
Since Trump won the election in November, rumors have circulated that Chelsea would run for Congress or possibly even president in 2020. But until she makes that announcement, Media, on behalf of everyone who follows politics, stop trying to make Chelsea happen.
