After rumored to have offended the nurses by allegedly stating that they are “glorified baby sitters” and “overpaid maids,” Hillary Clinton is on the headlines anew for another quote.
Accordingly, the 67th United States Secretary of State commented in the past that she did not want her daughter, Chelsea, marry a black man.
Did the 68-year-old politician really said such quote? Is she just like her opponent, Donald Trump, who has been tagged as racist?
According to Snopes, an election-related misinformation circulated recently.
Featuring a photo of Hillary Clinton, the supposed information material alleged that the Presidential candidate mad such controversial statement during an interview with “Seventeen” magazine in 1995.
“Would I be extremely disappointed if she [Chelsea] chose to marry a black man? Yes. Would I stop loving her? No, absolutely not,” the then First Lady of the United States reportedly shared.
While this alleged statement of the Presidential nominee of the Democratic Party was believed to be true by some, the site pointed out that based on their research, there is no truth to it.
It noted that “we found no evidence of Clinton making this remark, or even giving an interview to Seventeen at all in 1995.”
Apart from it, it was also stressed that it appeared unlikely for the publication to carry an interview with Hillary Clinton then considering that it is “largely devoted” to reporting updates about the celebrities, fashion and dating.
Amid this scenario, Snopes stated that “Hoax quotes are commonplace on the Internet, and many are circulated with phony citations and photographs in an attempt to make them appear credible — particularly during an election year.”
In the meantime, People reported that Chelsea has so much trust on her mother.
“If, God forbid, anything were to happen to Marc [Mezvinsky] and me, my mother would take care of my children,” Hillary Clinton’s daughter said on her “The View” appearance on Friday, while emphasizing on the fact that “there’s no one I trust more than my mom.”
