But don't make fun of her, because she's just the President's kid, and she hasn't done anything to deserve publicity. And respect her privacy and reasons.

Woman related to someone you know about changes job.

Paid $600,000 to be a part-time reporter and ended up only doing a few stories. Must be nice.

I wonder if that new NBC News president from England fired her. How bad is it when a Brit can's stomach the patronage jobs?

It's good to know that you can still get ahead in the United States, no matter which President was your father.

Yeah those Clinton years were pure hell.

I imagine NBC will have a hard time filling that job with comparable talent and at such a modest salary.

"...she is leaving in order to "continue focusing on my work at the Clinton Foundation and as Marc and I look forward to welcoming our first child."

Holy shiat! A rich pregnant lady decided to be a stay at home mom.

Stop the presses.

The Clintons are totally in touch with the plight of the common man though.

It would be much better if she inked a deal for a reality show where she couldn't figure out how to fire a rifle, even though she is an 'avid hunter'.

Well, Hillary is too busy so someone has to hide Bill's shenanigans from the public.

This is why it's good to rent certain big ticket items under contract.

It's close, but Hillary is better looking. Pantsuits are so farking hot.
 
2014-08-29 06:06:19 PM  
Thanks for the tip subby.  I'll have to send off my CV to NBC ASAP

Basically asked to leave because the lazy privileged snowflake's political connections didn't pan out.
 
2014-08-29 06:09:04 PM  
She'll be campaigning for Mom. Can't stay with a legit news org and do that.

What does that have to do with NBC News?

I kind of like her. I mean when she was younger she had the crazy hair and everything .. in front of the entire world. Just having those awkward times in school is bad enough. Her mom is kinda evil and her dad had the affair. She turned out pretty decently considering all that. Though I don't actually know that much about her. But she doesn't seem that bad.

Well you see, if NBC is still funneling money to the Clintons by giving....    wait a second.    I see what you did there.

For me it's that she's out of touch.  Kids of any celebrity are; especially if your dad was the leader of the free world.

The other day when she said that money didn't mean anything to her, even though she tried to care, was just too much.  While her husband is a hedge fund manager and she got paid ~$600,000 for just a few fluff pieces on NBC. Money doesn't mean anyting to her because she's never had to work for the huge amounts of cash and influence, she's spoilt.

uber humper,

Ahhh, yeah I see. That is pretty out of touch!

Never saw Chelsea on air, but I can't imagine she was any worse than her:

When I first saw Jenna Bush on air, I thought, "Well, she's new at this. She'll improve over time." But no, she's remained as terrible as she was on day one.

Yeah it's called nepotism and it applies to most super rich people in one way or the other. At least she's not running for President. Yet.
 
2014-08-29 06:49:26 PM  
Umm...okay.  Good for her.  And you too subby, keep bringing us these hard-hitting "gotcha" submissions.

I'm guessing Chelsea is out as a journalist for the exact opposite reason.  She would not be seen as an objective reporter while her mother is running for President.

No, she quit so Hilary can claim to be a poor, every-woman when she runs for President.

I'd do her and blow the gravy on her blue dress.

At least she didn't wind up with someone like her dad as her boss.

I would just like to point out that you rarely hear liberals say things like this about the Bush daughters.

/No, both sides are not bad...

Yeah because they're drunken sluts. I would definitely piss on them if they asked even though it's not my thing.

Well at least she isn't bleeding her employer for maternity leave immediately after getting the job like most.....shiat, I can no longer finish that sentence now can I?

Um, good for you, breed away.


Envy doesn't look good on anybody, Precious.

Hilary Jr got that job because of her last name. She's didn't get it on merit like Jenna W. Bush.

You don't mean that regardless of party, the rich own the high ranking political class in our nation?

I'm shocked by this revelation.
