During the roundtable discussion, Hillary spoke out against Donald Trump‘s commentary on women’s appearances.
“There are too many women online who are being bullied about how they look…the pressure of being talked about that way leads some young women to try to hurt themselves. We have to got be as clear as possible: you are more than the way you look,” she expressed.
The 36-year-old former First Daughter, who could get the role back in a matter of months, gave a speech to introduce her mom to the stage that evening.
“I’m here as a proud American, a proud Democrat, a proud mother, and a very, very proud daughter,” Chelsea said in the opening of her speech.
“I hope that my children will someday be as proud of me as I am of my mom. I am so grateful to be her daughter. I’m so grateful that she is Charlotte and Aidan‘s grandmother. She makes me proud every single day. And mom, grandma would be so proud of you tonight,” Chelsea said in her closing. “To everyone watching here at home, I know with all my heart that my mother will make us proud as our next president.”
Chelsea Clinton Introduces Mom Hillary with DNC Speech
The 38-year-old former investment banker met Chelsea when they were teenagers over 20 years ago while they attended a Democratic political retreat.
Chelsea and Marc stayed in touch over the years and they began dating in 2005. The couple got married in 2010 and they are the parents of two children – a daughter Charlotte, almost 2, and Aidan, one month.
Marc is the co-founder of the hedge fund Eaglevale Partners and he reportedly has a net worth of $15 million.
Chelsea Clinton is a longtime friend of Ivanka Trump and she says the presidential race between their parents has not affected their friendship.
When asked by The Today Show‘s Matt Lauer if she would still consider Ivanka a friend, Chelsea said, “Absolutely.”
“Why not convene a summit?” Matt said in response. “A children’s summit. Maybe just a daughter summit. You and Ivanka sit down over a cup of coffee and discuss tone and discuss what it’s like to hear those things coming out of the other candidate’s mouth about the person you love.”
“It isn’t something that had occurred to me but it’s certainly something I would consider,” Chelsea replied. “I think it was clear last week, when Ivanka introduced her dad, that she’s so proud of him. I hope it will be at least as clear why I’m so proud of my mom when I introduce her, here, in Philadelphia. And yet clearly Ivanka and I have very different views about who we think should be our president, who we think best represents our country.”
Lena Dunham and America Ferrera make an appearance on stage together during the 2016 Democratic National Convention on Tuesday (July 26) at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Penn.
The actresses bashed Republican nominee Donald Trump in their speech.
“I’m Lena Dunham, and according to Donald Trump my body is probably like a two,” Lena said while introducing herself. America introduced herself by saying, “I’m America Ferrera and, according to Donald Trump, I’m probably a rapist.”
“We know what you’re all thinking,” Lena added. “Why should you care what some television celebrity has to say about politics?”
“We feel the same way. But he is the Republican nominee, so we need to talk about it,” America continued.
Lena talked about how she is a sexual assault survivor with a chronic reproductive illness and America discussed how she is the daughter of immigrants. Watch the full speech below!
