Chelsea Clinton: I Spent My Twenties “Rebelling” Against My Parents, Working In Private Sector

In a recent interview with Yahoo! News anchor Katie Couric, Chelsea Clinton said her 20s were spent “rebelling” against her parents Bill and Hillary Clinton, which she did by working in the private sector.

Clinton opened up about how she wanted to focus on issues that did not appeal to her parents’ interests.

“I certainly spent my 20s rebelling, for me, by working in the private sector,” Clinton said. “And trying really hard to care about things that my parents didn’t care about.”

Chelsea Clinton also said she made a conscious effort to go “work” for NBC news as a reporter. What Clinton was tasked with doing while at NBC can’t be called “work.” She was paid $600,000  to cover stories no one cared about. But that was her way of making her own mark on the world, setting herself apart from her parents.

It’s laughable when you consider the fact the Bill and Hillary Clinton never had much private sector experience themselves. Now they just fly around the globe getting paid millions of dollars to give speeches. So Chelsea Clinton getting paid to do nothing makes sense.

Chelsea Clinton, a new mother and recipient of Glamour‘s Women of the Year Award, also said she was “grateful” for the opportunity to be away from her politically motivated parents.

“I’m grateful for those years that I spent because I learned things that I hadn’t learned around my dinner table,” Clinton said.

Brace yourself folks. Something tells me we’re going to be seeing a lot more of this tool.
