Chelsea Clinton takes on troll taunting her about her parents and Pizzagate

Chelsea Clinton has established a reputation for defending others — including Barron Trump — from cyberbullies. Now she’s sticking up for her own family.

The former first daughter took the time to respond to a Twitter commenter trolling her over the debunked Pizzagate conspiracy theory, which plagued her mother’s 2016 presidential campaign. (To recap: Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, John Podesta, had his emails hacked, prompting speculation that they contained coded messages about an alleged child sex ring at a Washington, D.C., pizzeria, Comet Ping Pong. Despite being discredited, the rumors resulted in death threats, an incident with an armed man at the pizzeria and a smear campaign against Clinton.)

Years later, her daughter is still fending off Pizzagate attacks. When a troll — who commented on her post about New York’s ban on conversion therapy — joked about her “parents still ordering pizza,” the younger Clinton took the kill-them-with-kindness approach while subtly pointing out the troll’s spelling errors. She also threw in a fun fact: The former first family digs cheese pizza.
