There are signs that the Clinton dynasty has crumbled, and that is great news to celebrate. Word on the street is that Chelsea Clinton is being groomed to run for congress, and so she has tried to make herself more visible via social media. But recently Chelsea learned that social media can also expose a vulnerable person to blowback that can sting.
Chelsea Clinton has been quite vocal on social media of late — more so than she was during the election.
And she has used her voice, on a pretty regular basis, to criticize the man who bested her mother — President Donald Trump — and members of his staff.
Her most recent critique came on the heels of a comment from The Washington Post’s Philip Rucker, who questioned how easily Mar-a-Lago guests could access foreign dignitaries and Trump administration officials:
Trump hashed out response to North Korea’s missile launch in the dining room at Mar-a-Lago, eavesdroppers galorehttps://t.co/t0dkNksx6C

As reported in BizPac Review, Clinton took it a step further — wondering how many foreign intelligence officers and members of the press might shell out for Mar-a-Lago membership in order to get just that kind of access:
How many of Mar-a-Lago's new members will be (already are?) members of foreign intelligence agencies & media organizations? https://t.co/8JqJfoWidP

But no sooner did Clinton speak up than Twitter came back with a quick and dirty history lesson, pointing out the “pay-for-play” allegations that had dogged her own parents and their foundation since before the 2016 election cycle even began:
@ChelseaClinton how many Clinton foundation donors are members of foreign lobbies and power organizations? You guys are shameless

@ChelseaClinton At least he didn't have to accept donations from people who stone women to death and toss gays from rooftops

@ChelseaClinton just because you stole from earthquake victims to pay for your wedding doesn't mean everyone behaves like that silly grifter

@ChelseaClinton Might not want to bring up this topic, until HRC releases the list of 1,100 Foreign Donors…

And her father’s…indiscretions:
@ChelseaClinton wasn't your dad on a classified call while Monica was under his desk??? How soon we forget….

How much classified info was Monica privy to while playing your daddy's flute in the Oval Office? @ChelseaClinton

But one person summed up the general tone in just seven words: “Chelsea, people who live in glass houses…”
