During an appearance on “The View,” former first daughter Chelsea Clinton addressed some of her concerns about President Donald Trump and his leadership of the country.
“Please, do your job,” Clinton told the panel of women. “Please, don’t worry about the Oscar ratings or how my mom is doing. Although, thank you, she’s doing great. Please, worry about what’s happening on the Korean Peninsula. Please, worry about what the Parkland students are saying, ‘never again,’ truly is never again. So we never have another school shooting in our country. Please, worry about what you can do from the federal government’s perspective to make sure teachers in West Virginia and everywhere are paid appropriately.”
She went on to say that whatever issue it is, she would prefer Trump lead the nation on that.
Co-host Meghan McCain asked Clinton why she thought Republicans still supported Trump, to the tune of 80 percent.
Clinton explained she’s not a Republican and can’t speak for what they might think, but she hopes that regardless of where people sit on the political spectrum “we can agree on what our common challenges are and hopefully we can spend time and energy about how we best solve those.”
While McCain kept citing GOP support, Clinton explained that it’s obvious looking broadly across the U.S. that the overwhelming majority of Americans want a different style of leadership. “Both in terms of the problems being solved but also the approach of how they’re being solved and the language that historically we’ve heard from the men who held that office.”
Amber Tamblyn, whose mother is a teacher, asked what Clinton thinks about the idea that teachers be expected to carry guns to keep schools secure.
Clinton noted that the public expects teachers to not only teach but be social workers, nurses, disciplinarians and now public safety officers too.
“While not being adequately compensated or respected for the profound work they do for our children and our shared future,” she said.
About the teens in Parkland, Florida, Clinton said they’re already changing things.
When asked about Ivanka Trump being asked about her father’s personal life, Clinton said that any employee of the White House doing interviews should expect any and all questions about the president.
“So, yes, I do think it was a fair question,” she said.

Bill Barr slammed by ex-FBI official for ignoring the right-wing ‘Boogaloo Bois’ infiltrating protests
Attorney General Bill Barr was slammed by the former assistant director for counterintelligence at the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Saturday for misleading Americans about the source of violence at the protests over the killing of George Floyd while in police custody.
"There's evidence developing, Brian, that the organization we're seeing of the most violent protesters is coming from a couple of disturbing places," both, by the way, there's disparate in terms in being from the right or the left. here's what those who monitor these groups and sites are seeing.
"We're seeing a far-right group, one group for example known as the Boogaloo Bois, who on their private Facebook page and social media outlets are calling for violence, calling for people to show up," Frank Figliuzzi told MSNBC's Brian Williams.
Trump is the ‘greatest troll in the history of the internet’ and Twitter needs to ‘pull the plug’: NYT columnist
President Donald Trump would face an existential crisis if Twitter were to enforce it's own rules and hold him accountable -- and one New York Times columnist wants to see it happen.
"C’mon, @Jack. You can do it," Maureen Dowd wrote, referring to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey with his username on the platform.
She urged Dorsey to "just pull the plug on him."
"You could answer the existential question of whether @realDonaldTrump even exists if he doesn’t exist on Twitter. I tweet, therefore I am. Dorsey meets Descartes," she explained. "All it would take is one sweet click to force the greatest troll in the history of the internet to meet his maker."
Justice Roberts took ‘clear swipe’ at Kavanaugh in opinion siding with liberals in religion case: report
On Friday night, the Supreme Court handed down a decision in South Bay United Pentecostal Church v. Newsom, holding that California Gov. Gavin Newsom's restrictions on church gatherings are not a violation of religious liberty. Chief Justice John Roberts crossed over to join with the liberals for a 5-4 split.
But the ruling was dramatic in a key way. As court watcher Mark Joseph Stern wrote for Slate, Justice Brett Kavanaugh "falsely accused the state of religious discrimination in an extremely misleading opinion that omits the most important facts of the case" in his dissent — and was so dishonest that Roberts went out of his way to rebuke him in the Court opinion.
