‘The View’ pushes Hillary-Chelsea ticket
The ladies of ABC’s “The View” have a unique idea for the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential election ticket: Hillary Clinton and her daughter Chelsea.
Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar and their co-hosts sat down Wednesday with Chelsea Clinton to discuss her new book, “She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World.” The talk covered ways the Clinton family dealt with President Trump’s Election Day victory before broaching the subject of her future political ambitions.
“You said you’re not interested in running for political office, but your political tweets do give people hope,” co-host Sara Haines said while holding up a “Clinton-Clinton 2020” bumper sticker. “Is there anything that would change your mind?”
The audience burst into applause and cheers as “Clinton-Clinton 2020” also appeared on a giant television screen.
“As I’ve said before, I don’t think being a citizen is something that just happens on Election Day,” a non-committal Ms. Clinton said. “I think registering to vote, showing up to vote is hugely important. I also think standing up for what we believe, saying what we believe, saying what we’re both for and against, standing in opposition to and in affirmation of is hugely important.”
