Would they, though? Chelsea Clinton has been the daughter of a sitting president before. She's also been the daughter of a sitting secretary of state. Do you remember her ever taking their places at a state function?

Good morning Mr. President. It would never have occurred to my mother or my father to ask me. Were you giving our country away? Hoping not.

Clinton also pointed out that, thanks to Trump's strange wording, the implication in his tweet is that he was busy "giving our country away."

Say what you will about their politics, but Donald Trump's an early-riser. So is Clinton. The first punch was thrown at 7:47 a.m EST. The counter punch was thrown at 8:25. Lucky us! Now we have all day to watch their proxies attack one another about it.

Or watch puppy videos. The choice is yours.
