The political analysis of Chelsea's new pregnancy.

Fox News does what lefties think Fox News does:



Did Chelsea and her husband time this pregnancy to help Hillary...

“Is that timed out?” Bolling asked. “Did they do the math?”

“I would never suggest such a thing,” Perino said, despite having just suggested that very thing.

Bolling noted that the Democratic National Committee “timed those debates for NFL weekends and ‘Star Wars,’ so who knows? They’re good at timing on the left.”

“They have that down,” Perino replied, again saying the very thing she said she would never suggest.
Whatever. It helps Hillary for Fox News to do that.

Everything is about how it affects women, which means it's about dementia.

There's no call for women to up their game. The chromosomes are against it happening.

Sammy Finkelman said...

There's a limit as to the abiliy to time a pregnancy, but I think the answer is...

Yes.

They weren't resting their whole election strategy on this, but, yes.

This may be more in the sense of postponing it until about now because Chelsea probably did want more tahn one child.

Sammy Finkelman said...

The wedding was also timed - for a period between elections.

Who cares...

Nonapod said...

At some point people are gonna believe what they're gonna believe. While it certainly seems absurdly extreme to specifically plan a pregnancy to humanize the grandmother, keep in mind we're talking about:

- a person who perpetuated a false story in order to cover up a very serious mistake that resulted in the deaths of several Americans

- a person who then went on to lie right to the faces of the loved ones of those dead Americans

- a person who ran her own illegal private email server, sending and receiving classified messages for years, in order to have full control of all her information

and that's just the tip of the iceberg





JAORE said...

Yeah, dumb. But Dana did not suggest it was times for effect, just noted that the timing was helpful. Eric, however, did so.

BDNYC said...

Would people really want to vote for a grandmotherly president? I guess I don't understand the political calculus.

To me, a grandmother is meant to be nice and pleasant and taken care of. She is certainly protective of her family, particularly her grandchildren, but her family really has to look out for her because of her trusting nature. There are many, many flimflam men out there who prey on older women.

Maybe in the black community a grandmother is more commonly thought of as an actual leader, a matriarch.

Birkel said...

Here's hoping the baby is happy and healthy.

Or, er, rather, I hope that lump of cells without any moral significance whatsoever becomes something we identify as human if the mother wishes not to get rid of it for any or no reason she wants.

Also, the man who was simply a splooge stooge is of no moment.

LYNNDH said...

So the time is "fake but true"?

Hagar said...

Perino has an article up on Fox News about her New Year's resolution not to be like that.

Krumhorn said...

Whatever. It helps Hillary for Fox News to do that.

What? By pointing out that the lefties are venal, corrupt, and will stoop to any degenerate level?

Wait! You can't get preggers doing anal.

SteveR said...

You aren't suggesting that Fox News won't help Hillary?

traditionalguy said...

Oh my. FOX News just Schlonged Hillary's family.

Gahrie said...

Yeah this was ever so much worse than how the Left treated Palin and her pregnancy/child.

Has Andrew Sullivan commented yet?

MadisonMan said...

Chelsea is 35. So are her eggs. At some point you get pregnant now or toss the dice with a higher-risk pregnancy.

I doubt Chelsea is planning her deliveries around her Mom's campaign. I'm less certain that Hillary!!! won't take advantage of it.

I suspect Chelsea expects her parents to do that kind of thing.

tim in vermont said...

Whose uterus does Fox News think they are talking about anyway!?! Sarah Palin's?!? Isn't there some kind of lese majeste statute under which Fox can be prosecuted?

Curious George said...

I'll bet ole Webster is a proud grandpappy!

Matt said...

"Is this just a coincidence or is this fact actually related to the rumors that went wild over the weekend, saying that Sarah Palin's new baby, Trig, was not her baby at all but her grandson?"

Who would suggest something like that?! Oh, it was Professor Althouse. But, right, Fox News is so awful. Pathetic.

chillblaine said...

Clearly tongue in cheek. Media Matters may run with the video, but will get more outrage with the transcript. One thing is absolutely certain. Chelsea has been schlonged twice as much as Hillary.

cubanbob said...

If it were anyone but the Clinton's the suggestion would be laughable. Hillary already has enough money, isn't in the best of shape and Bill being Bill no doubt he will be soon causing more problems, their foundation has more than enough assets to keep Chelsea employed for life so why doesn't she just give it a rest and enjoy being a grandmother? Do herself a world of good and the same for the country. I'm sure Trump or Cruz would quietly give her a blanket pardon for the good of the country.

William said...

I like Dana Perino. Someone criticized her for frowning at some remark. She said that the expression wasn't a frown, but just her crow's feet. That's a pretty good line. Women rarely offer self deprecatory humor about their crow's feet.

ddh said...

Somebody can't take a joke.

Hunter said...

Pretty obvious from the video that they are joking around with the idea. Bolling and Perino are normally on The Five, which is semi-serious, and Perino is a regular on Red Eye which is non-serious.

I will admit however that Bolling is hacky enough that he might half-believe it really was timed. And it being the Clintons makes half-believing it not that outrageous a place to go.

You know, that'd be a really clever idea. Have Trump or Cruz promise to give a pardon to Hillary for the crimes she committed as Sec of State and with her Foundation. Mention it constantly.

Brando said...

I put nothing past the Clintons in terms of sneakiness and sheer political calculation, but I doubt this was timed. On the other hand, I can easily see Bill Clinton timing his fatal heart attack for October to give his wife maximum sympathy votes. Maybe that scenario is a bit too far fetched, but of all the living politicians the Clintons are the only ones I could see doing that.

Bay Area Guy said...

Yawn. Concern trolling. Non-story. Non-criticism of minor comment by Dana Perrino on non-story.

Here's to a healthy baby, Chelsea!

But, for the sake of the country, we do have to defeat your obnoxious, powerful mother.

garage mahal said...

Sniffing paint has to be better for the brain than watching Fox News. And there millions that watch it daily and think it's like real news.

Pookie Number 2 said...

It helps Hillary for Fox News to do that.

Maybe. Says something pretty unkind about American voters if they'd be more inclined to vote for someone as stupendously dishonest as Hillary in response to silly Fox News chatter.

Lem said...

Bill did attack Iraq when Monica was making headlines.

How much of a stretch could a pregnancy be now?

Bob Ellison said...

Well, I'll just observe that Dana Perino is durn pretty.

Gahrie said...

And there millions that watch it daily and think it's like real news.

Yeah...don't they know that real news comes from Dan Rather and Brian Williams?

Chuck said...

Well, bullshit. I call bullshit. On Salon, which is a half-step away from Media Matters.

I ADORE Dana Perino. She's one of the very best on Fox. And there are several people on Fox that I really do dislike.

Dana Perino didn't suggest any "timing." She offered up the news and had a bit or wordplay with it. Salon is looking for reasons to be butt-hurt about Fox and someone like Dana Perino.

Bad effort on this one, Professor Althouse.

Mac McConnell said...

A Grifter wouldn't do such a thing.

Qwinn said...

Amazing... for the first time in all these years, garage mahal finally speaks to a subject I would be willing to consider him an authority on - the effects of sniffing paint on the brain - and he still manages to be completely wrong.

Pookie Number 2 said...

Garage: Sniffing paint has to be better for the brain than watching Fox News.

Well, now we understand your limited thinking ability.

David Begley said...

Considering how poorly Chelsea's husband's hedge fund did in 2015 I'm surprised they are having another baby. He invested heavily in Greek stocks. No lie.

But when one is part of the Clinton money machine I suppose that doesn't make any difference. The Clintons are different than us.

Left Bank of the Charles said...

Fox News, shmundied again.

Amanda said...

"But, for the sake of the country, we do have to defeat your obnoxious, powerful mother."

With Trump. No obnoxiousness there. Oy ya can't make this stuff up...

He knows if Hillary is President, he will clean up big.

Because Progressives love them some hedge fund managers. They may CLAIM to dislike them, but let's be real.

Milton Zenobia said...

I think ISIS will use this in a recruiting video.

Humperdink said...

The Mahal fella, after advising the benefits of inhaling solvent based fumes, seems to suggest that Fox News will be the only one thinking this was a planned political pregnancy.

Speaking of mineral spirits, recall our former Commander-in-Heat, Tiger Bill, bombed as aspirin factory in Sudan as a wag the dog moment.

Will Cate said...

This isn't going to mean anything. Hillary's already a grandma; the novelty has worn off.

jacksonjay said...

Did Dana Perino say something? Hell, I don't listen when she tawks, I just gawk.

We had an old lady run for Governor in Texas in 2006 as "One Tough Grandma". Carole Keeton Strayhorn was a Republican who couldn't beat Oops in the primary and ran as an independent. Her pop was the legendary dean of the Univ. of Texas Law School. Grandma, Kinky Friedman and some Democrat combined to capture 60% of the vote and re-elect Governor Oops. Actually, Grandma Strayhorn seemed pretty competent. The only thing I remember from her campaign the stripper tax she proposed.

Unknown said...

Oh course it's timed. Lefties leave nothing to chance.

EDH said...

So according to Hillary the ideal is that female reproductive freedom means it should be a choice for all women.

Except somehow it wasn't for Chelsea Clinton in the year of her mother's presidential election?

readering said...

Ivanka is expecting next year too. I see great joint photo opps ahead.
