Former first daughter lashes out over upcoming NBC interview
June 12, 2017
Former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton attacked Infowars founder Alex Jones as “a liar” Sunday night following a sneak preview of his sit down interview with NBC host Megyn Kelly.
[ad]Clinton claimed it was a “horrible thing” for Kelly to “give a platform to a Sandy Hook truther,” and discouraged parents from watching Jones’ upcoming NBC interview.
“There is no justification for amplifying lies (or a liar), particularly about unimaginable tragedy. I hope no parent, no person watches this,” Chelsea said.

Chelsea was responding to a Daily Kos editor’s tweet, which stated, “it is a horrible thing for @megynkelly to give a platform to a Sandy Hook truther. No justification. @msnbc reconsider what you are doing.”

It’s unclear why the Kos editor tagged MSNBC, as Kelly’s show airs on parent station NBC.
On Sunday, Nelba Márquez-Greene, the mother of a Sandy Hook child, claimed Jones’ “victims” deserved “equal air time.”

Of course, Chelsea could also be upset over an Infowars segment last week, in which Jones suggested her real father is not former President Bill Clinton, but former Rose Law attorney Webster Hubbell.
