Chelsea Clinton: ‘Sad’ Trump Called Hillary A ‘Nasty Woman’ At Debate
Chelsea Clinton sad it makes her “sad” that Donald Trump called her mom Hillary Clinton a “nasty woman” at Wednesday’s presidential debate.
The 36-year-old daughter of the Democratic presidential nominee told the ladies on “The Talk” Thursday that she wished the debate could focus on things that matter to people instead of getting off topic by things Trump said, according to People magazine.

“It just makes me sad that it is part of our presidential election system,” Clinton said. “And I’m really biased toward my mom, but I do hope on Nov. 8 we send a really strong message that love really does trump hate.” (RELATED: LEAKED: Chelsea Used Fake Names While Raising Big Bucks For Clinton Foundation)
“My first reaction was, ‘Oh no, now no one’s going to pay attention to Social Security, which is a really important conversation and hasn’t gotten enough attention this election season,'” she added. “I think it has been clear now for many months who Donald Trump is, and particularly as we are sitting here on GLAAD Spirit Day … that he has a view of who he thinks isn’t as good as he is.”
“And sadly I think we’ve seen that to include women and minorities and immigrants and the LGBT community.”
Clinton also knocked Trump for refusing to say that he will accept the results of the election.
“Listening to what Trump said last night, flying in the face of 240 years of bipartisan commitment to accept the results of our election, was so distressing to me,” Clinton said. “I have been grateful to hear last night and today the bipartisan condemnation of that. One of the things that makes our country great is the peaceful transformation of power and we must respect that.”
The former first daughter said no matter what happens in the election, however, she looks forward to continuing her friendship with Ivanka Trump, the Republican presidential nominee’s daughter.
“Our friendship began well before this election season, and I certainly hope that it continues well afterwards,” Clinton said. “I think it’s very clear that we have different views for what the right answer is for our country … and then it will be Nov. 9, as hard as that might seem. And I think friendships and friends are really important to keep regardless.”
