Chelsea Clinton is known for taking a kill-them-with-kindness approach with Twitter trolls. This time, however, the former first daughter isn’t holding back about her objections to President Trump’s behavior.

While Clinton was among the first to chastise Rep. Ilhan Omar for using anti-Semitic tropes when discussing the pro-Israel lobby AIPAC on Twitter, she’s now defending the Minnesota lawmaker. Though Omar has since apologized, Trump has called for the freshman congresswoman to either resign from Congress or the House Foreign Affairs Committee on which she serves.

Clinton took to Twitter on Tuesday to call out the president for criticizing Omar, citing what she says is his “embrace of white nationalism” and “exploitation & amplification of anti-Semitic, Islamophobic, racist, xenophobic, anti-LGBTQ hate.”

And when Vice President Mike Pence tweeted his own condemnation of Omar — calling her words a “disgrace” and her apology “inadequate” — Clinton responded by once again calling out Trump.

When a critic accused her of having “no proof” that the president encouraged racist rhetoric and behavior, Clinton cited several of his policies.

Many lauded Clinton’s Trump criticism, but she also took heat for her previous remarks accusing Omar of using anti-Semitic language. Her new defense of Omar, they say, comes too late.
