Chelsea Clinton On Sandra Fluke: “We Both Have Been Attacked By Rush Limbaugh”
10:00 am, March 29th | by Laura Donovan
For a while there, we thought people had finally stopped talking about conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh’s unnecessary verbal attack on Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke…and then we were brought back to reality. Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton revived discussion on the matter during a Wednesday conference at the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan, where she introduced Fluke and said the two of them both had the unique misfortune of being made fun of by Limbaugh.
“She and I have something in common. We both have been attacked by Rush Limbaugh. She was 30, I was 13,” Clinton said before Fluke entered the room to massive applause, according to BuzzFeed. What an awesome way to connect with someone, huh?
While Limbaugh was completely out of line and cruel to call Clinton the “White House dog” in 1993, when she was just entering her teens and still a child, that incident took place almost twenty years ago. The Fluke/Limbaugh debacle is much more recent, and while his nasty comment about Clinton only proves he’s been mean-spirited for a long period of time, it’s odd that Clinton would try to rehash a nearly two decade old story for the sake of finding common ground with another young woman.
