Chelsea Clinton wanted no part of former Press Secretary Philippe Reines’ attack on Donald Trump Jr.’s soon-to-be ex-wife Vanessa Trump. In a tweet, Reines’ took a dig at Trump Jr. by using sexual stereotypes and slut shaming Vanessa:
Vanessa being with a Latin King must’ve driven you insanely jealous. The machismo, the passion. Tough act to follow. Did you wonder if she fantasized about Valentin Rivera when intimate with you? She did. Every time.

Then, in what seems to be a bid for attention, a Trump supporter retweeted the offensive tweet at Chelsea Clinton to get her response. As if she is somehow responsible for a grown man’s public statements.
Clinton responded with a simple message:
It’s vile. https://t.co/K2xgl6CC1F

So many layers of misogyny here.
Hey buddy, way to be racist AND sexist. Will you ever take this down or naw?

Too far. Too much. Too gross.

Holding women accountable for what men do is how men get away with this shit all the time. You don't like what Reines said, attack Reines, but I guess you can only muster courage for attacking women.

Phew! Oh man I’m so glad the world will continue to spin. Stop holding women accountable for the acts of men. Should your daughter have to account for the sins of every man she engages with?
