Chelsea Clinton just threw some A-grade shade at President Trump on Twitter

The year is 2017:  the Backstreet Boys want fans to join them on a Nineties-themed cruise, Noel Fielding is genuinely set to present The Great British Bake Off and Donald Trump is still president of the United States of America.

During his time as pres, Trump has made a lot of headlines – and mostly for the wrong reasons. We’ve seen him do his utmost to sign away women’s reproductive rights, withdraw from the historic 2015 Paris climate agreement, reportedly enforce an unbelievable sexist dress code at the White House, and attempt to ban immigrants from seven “majority-Muslim countries,” including Syria, Somalia and Iran.

As if that weren’t enough, Trump has been keeping busy on Twitter (presumably running the country doesn’t give him enough to do), tweeting a steady stream of insults at anyone who annoys him. Think his predecessor Barack Obama, London mayor Sadiq Khan, our beloved Meryl Streep, and, y’know, any and all “nasty women” out there in the world.

Surprise surprise – he’s now taken to calling out the children of former presidents, too.

Trump initially came under fire for sending his daughter Ivanka (an unelected representative with zero political experience) to fill his seat at a G20 Summit meeting.

Rather than accept the fact that he may have made something of a political faux pas, Trump decided to give in to his bruised ego and respond by bellowing like a wounded boar.

Tiny fingers typing furiously, he soon began tweeting smack about the Clintons. Which, to be fair, is a technique that usually curries favour with some of Trump’s more ardent supporters.

Right.

What Trump possibly didn’t bank on was Chelsea Clinton seeing his tweets pop up in her newsfeed.

Unwilling to let the POTUS spout nonsense about her family on social media, Clinton fired back a pointed message of her own.

“Good morning, Mr President,” she typed, her message dripping with faux-politeness.

“It would never have occurred to my mother or my father to ask me.”

And then, disguising her badassery as wide-eyed innocence, Clinton asked: “Were you giving our country away? Hoping not.”

 

It wasn’t long before Clinton’s tweet caught the eye of… well, basically everyone.

And it’s safe to say that they were seriously big fans of her work.

And, of course, there were more than a few people who decided to take up Trump’s cry of “CHELSEA FOR PRES”.
