Here is a prime example of someone wanting to stay relevant long enough to run for office. Sadly for Chelsea, but hilarious for the rest of us, this little stunt blew up in her face.
Adding fuel to the fire of speculation surrounding a political run of her own, Chelsea is now out with a book, and it’s title is derived from a phrase used to defend Elizabeth Warren (also known for her Twitter meltdowns in reaction to Trump).
According to Twitchy:
Ever since Sen. Mitch McConnell shut down Sen. Elizabeth Warren back in February, the phrase “nevertheless, she persisted” has become the rallying cry of women liberals everywhere. And now Chelsea Clinton is reportedly using it in a new children’s book:

It’s hard to imagine any kindergartners nationwide excited to read this — or many adults being thrilled enough to buy the book either, which quickly became a point of mockery as the media tries to make Chelsea the “next big thing” for some unknown reason.
Chelsea Clinton's book is called "She Persisted?"
More like "She Insisted" on staying relevant despite everyone being sick of her!!!

"Chelsea Clinton" wrote a children's book. The Original title was, She Persisted until all 33,000 Emails were Deleted and Bleached.#Trump

Of all the literary subgenres out there, can we all agree none is more grotesque than "political children's book?" https://t.co/ZDEWRYQl9S

Chelsea Clinton wants you to know you can thrive even if only *one* of your parents was president. https://t.co/FU7HchxdnK

Seriously, privileged Chelsea? A picture book? Is it geared towards toddlers or adults who can't read!?

Chelsea said in a statement “I wrote this book for everyone who’s ever wanted to speak up but has been told to quiet down, for everyone who’s ever been made to feel less than. The 13 women in ‘She Persisted’ all overcame adversity to help shape our country — sometimes through speaking out, sometimes by staying seated, sometimes by captivating an audience. With this book, I want to send a message to young readers around the country — and the world — that persistence is power.”
