Chelsea Clinton Writing Children’s Book ‘She Persisted’
Yeah, Chelsea will run for some kind of office.
Stop trying to make Chelsea Clinton happen! The former First Daughter has announced that she will publish a children’s book She Persisted. The title comes from hashtag that exploded on Twitter after Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) broke floor rules and had to remain silent as the Senate debated on then-Sen. Jeff Sessions’s attorney general nomination. From Entertainment Weekly:
Illustrated by Alexandra Boiger (Max and Marla), She Persisted will tell the stories of 13 women who overcame immense opposition to achieve their goals. The 13 women include Harriet Tubman, Helen Keller, Nellie Bly, Maria Tallchief, Claudette Colvin, Clara Lemlich, Ruby Bridges, Margaret Chase Smith, Sally Ride, Florence Griffith Joyner, Oprah Winfrey, and Sonia Sotomayor. The picture book will also feature a cameo by another important female figure. (We’ve got a pretty good guess as to who this candidate might be…)
“I wrote this book for everyone who’s ever wanted to speak up but has been told to quiet down, for everyone who’s ever been made to feel less than,” said Clinton, the author of It’s Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired & Get Going, in a statement. “The 13 women in She Persisted all overcame adversity to help shape our country—sometimes through speaking out, sometimes by staying seated, sometimes by captivating an audience. With this book, I want to send a message to young readers around the country—and the world—that persistence is power.”
Persistence has changed the course of history – I'm so excited to share stories of girls & women who didn't take no for answer on May 30th! pic.twitter.com/IMWWou6kBX

So she’s following the same self-serving feminist strategy as her mother (who lost, btw)? I guess she’s as smart as her mother, too.
Wait, her own mother isn’t one of the 13 women who achieved her goals?
Oh yeah, she lost.
“I wrote this book for everyone who’s ever wanted to speak up but has been told to quiet down, for everyone who’s ever been made to feel less than,” said Clinton
She should have wrote how the GOP was told to shut up during the Healthcare law debates and how everything the GOP put on the table was thrown right off it and couldn’t be part of the law.
I’m coming out with a rebuttal children’s book titled “Shut Your Piehole”.
Everyone knew that the story about an anti-Islam video was a lie, yet she persisted.
The FOIA requests arrived with frequency, and it was improper to conduct official business on a private email server, yet she persisted.
She had received training on how to handle confidential information, and in her capacity as head of the department she was responsible for handling it properly, yet she persisted.
She knew that the law firm records had been subpoenaed by congress and that hiding them in the White House was illegal, yet she persisted.
She knew that her husband was a serial rapist and that protecting him in order to further her own craven political ambitions was wrong and destroyed the lives of innocent women, yet she persisted.
She knew it was improper to receive payment from foreign entities who had business before her department, yet she persisted.
She was an old, feeble, corrupt, criminal washed up hag, and the country wanted nothing more than for her and her corrupt clan to shut their mouths and go away, yet they persisted.
These mindless narcissists are beyond parody.
Boy, Chelsea’s ghostwriters are busy this year.
I have read of convicted felons being denied parole because they persisted in professing their innocence.

There – fixed it for you Chelsea.
(Chelsea is an infamous bad speller, but her mummy knows all about fixing things.)
In all seriousness, what parent would read this to a child? What child would want to read this? Not saying it’s a bad book or anything, but it seems to suffer from the “I’m a celebrity so I have to write a children’s book at some point” syndrome, and so many books for children (?!?) by celebrities are largely social, cultural, political commentary. Are they funny, adventurous? Heck, are they *stories*? And they wonder why fewer Americans are watching their movies or buying their fiction(?).
My favorite children’s book is “Four Pups and a Worm”. I’d pay to see that turned into a movie.
