Chelsea Clinton is pregnant

Chelsea Clinton just announced that she’s pregnant.

“Marc and I are very excited that we have our first child arriving later this year,” she said, according to Amy Chozick of the New York Times (via Twitter).

“I just hope that I will be a good mom to my child and hopefully children as my mom was to me,” she added, according to Phil Rucker, also via Twitter.

Just the other day, Chelsea was reported as saying she wouldn’t rule out a political run in the future:

“I live in a city and a state and a country where I support my elected representatives. If at some point that weren’t the case, and I didn’t support my mayor or my city councilwoman or my congresswoman or either of my senators — and I’m lucky to live in a state where I have lots of women representing me, you know — maybe then I’d have to ask and answer the question for myself, and come to a different answer.”

    I didn’t. I read the headline and commented how it was not news as is my right. Aren’t we miss picky smarty pants.

    If this news is so unimportant, why did you read it?

    And her husband’s career at Goldman, Sachs and Chelsea’s “job” at NBC as an on-air correspondent–this is all payback and bribery. Even her Clinton Global Initiative work is a handout from the crony capitalists who fund the CGI. Her father’s post-presidency has been one huge handout after another from Wall Street and the rest of the corporate world via “speaking fees” AKA payback and bribery. The Clintons, the Obamas, the Bushes–the political class is owned by and operated for the plutocrats. Benghazi, gay marriage, gun control, welfare–these issues are used to distract people from the Big Con of looting by the 0.01% and their political puppets.

  • So so tired of Bill Perdue

    Hon, if you buy 3 packages the 4th one’s free! They have Walgreens down in Vegas don’t they?

  • So so tired of Bill Perdue

    Sweetie, did you have a chance to check out that big Depends sale yet?

  • So so tired of Bill Perdue

    Good morning, doll. So what you up to today? Thought you should know Walgreens is running a big sale on Depends. 30% off. Check it out. Time to stock up?

  • pappyvet

    I wish them good luck and good health.

  • lynchie

    I agree.

    Vernon Jordan gave her a job as hedge fund manager when she finished college with a degree in Philosophy. Hardly struck out on her own to conquer.

    I think this will be Hillary’s excuse for not running for president. She will want to devote all her time to being a grandmother.

  • therling

    The real father is Vince Foster, whose sperm that is being kept in a sperm bank.

  • lynchie

    Chelsea got pregnant like thousands of other women. Many of whom struggle each day to live. Nothing note worthy or amazing about it and they don’t get it announced across the country as a major achievement. Another page in the Hillary Clinton book

  • lynchie

    Bingo you win the bobblehead doll.

  • wtf2

    How is Island smearing Chelsea? You are completely misunderstanding what he/she wrote. If anyone is smearing, it’s you.

    And by the way, Chelsea Clinton and her husband are part of the parasite class that is destroying the middle and working class in this country. They’ve had money and no-work jobs handed to them by the plutocrats as payment on past and future political favors by their families.

  • goulo

    Or Edward Snowden’s? Or Putin’s? So many possibilities!

  • So so tired of Bill Perdue

    How are ya sweetie?

  • zerosumgame0005

    so you had no point except to try to make a joke about how she is abusing you or something? the same way a bully thinks it a “joke” to abuse some poor kid because he thinks the kid is gay or just easy to pick on? That gives you the liberty to smear this woman?

    Really excited we'll have Bush v. Clinton to look forward to in the 2060 election, just like the 2016.— emptywheel (@emptywheel) April 17, 2014

  • Max_1

    O.K.
    You get to explain, to Pat Robertson, that one…

  • Jim Olson

    Family dynasties is precisely the reason I am not supporting Hillary. I will vote for her if I have to in the General election, but will look to see who else is running in the primary.

  • Island In The Sky

    And that you have to have sarcasm explained to you shows you’re a rather dim bulb.

  • Indigo

    On the bright side, a busy grandmother-to-be is less likely to volunteer for president-to-be.

  • http://buddybest.tripod.com/index.html BuddyNovinski

    Maybe Diana Ross’s also?

  • http://buddybest.tripod.com/index.html BuddyNovinski

    So what’s the big deal? Lynda Bird Johnson became pregnant in 1967 when LBJ was president, so is this publicity because HiIllary might be a grandparent when she runs for president in 2016?

  • Bill_Perdue

    More dynastic politics.

    Will this child be the one who crosses the Rubicon?

  • http://www.rebeccamorn.com/mind BeccaM

    I’ll have to get back to you when I can decide between simply not caring or if a flying rat’s ass is required…

    ;-)

  • jharp

    It’s to cover up Benghazi.

  • jharp

    Cool. I think Chelsea is a remarkable young woman. I happen to think she is smoother on the stage that her Mom.

    Either way another Clinton is very good news.

  • http://www.americablog.com/ Naja pallida

    Transformation to Beltway TMZ, 10% complete. Please stand by.

  • zerosumgame0005

    if you have to lie to make a point you really did not have a point to begin with

  • Elijah Shalis

    I gotta ask, why is this newsworthy for americablog? Just curious. Im supporting Hillary for President but that will be the last Clinton. I don’t believe in family dynasties in democracies.

  • Island In The Sky

    [eyeroll] “Yesterday afternoon”

    when did she ask you to?

    “Obama’s love child?”

    Man: ‘Evening, squire!

    Squire: (stiffly) Good evening.

    Man: Is, uh,…Is your wife a goer, eh? Know whatahmean, know whatahmean, nudge nudge, know whatahmean, say no more?

    Squire: I, uh, I beg your pardon?

    Man: Your, uh, your wife, does she go, eh, does she go, eh?

    Squire: (flustered) Well, she sometimes ‘goes’, yes.

    Man: Aaaaaaaah bet she does, I bet she does, say no more, say no more, know whatahmean, nudge nudge?

  • Island In The Sky

    Whatevs. Not going to treat her like royalty now.

  • Monophylos Fortikos

    Anyone want to take a wager on what the first insane conspiracy theory will be? I’m guessing that it will be that there is no actual pregnancy. Expect minute analyses of all subsequent photographs for evidence that the pregnancy is actually just padded clothing or photographic manipulation.
