No, Seriously, It’s None of Your Business

Someone has once again asked Chelsea Clinton about Monica Lewinsky, and once again Ms. Clinton told them it’s none of their business.

Campaigning at North Carolina State, a student brought up the touchy-subject, saying the scandal was the public’s business since the incident occurred when her father was President of the United States.

The younger Clinton sharply disagreed she should discuss the matter.

“It’s none of your business,” she said. “That is something that is personal to my family. I’m sure there are things that are personal to your family that you don’t think are anyone else’s business either.”

As the student left the event, the former first daughter also said she doesn’t think people should “vote for or against my mother because of my father.”

The student later defended his comments to CNN affiliated WTVD, saying “I felt that it is our business because he was president at the time, and his first duty is to be chief citizen.”

Okay, fine; as boatboy_srq suggested, “it could be amusing to ask Jenna Bush the same basic question: ‘Do you think your father’s behaving like a schmuck on the world stage reflects poorly on your mother?'” Let’s see how that would go over with the Orcosphere.
