Donald Trump and his supporters have been quick to condemn TBS “Full Frontal” star Samantha Bee for her use of a four-letter obscenity that begins with the letter C in reference to Ivanka Trump – for which Bee has since apologized – but former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton pointed out today in a tweet that her mother, while First Lady, was called the same thing by a friend of the president’s, who has visited him in the Oval Office.
Trump’s friend and fan is Ted Nugent, the crude, rude outspoken rock and roll singer, who is a longtime board member of the National Rifle Association, and was an early Trump supporter.
In a 1994 interview with Westword magazine, Nugent said, “You probably can’t use the term ‘toxic c*nt’ in your magazine, but that’s what she is,” referring to Hillary Clinton. “Her very existence insults the spirit of individualism in this country. This b*tch is nothing but a two-bit wh*re for Fidel Castro.”
Chelsea Clinton was reminded of what Nugent said about her mother by a tweet from journalist Oliver Willis, author of the book “The Deepest State: A Satirical Epic,” published earlier this year.

She tweeted her own exasperated response:
I keep hoping for consistency too, Oliver. Though I’m not holding my breath! https://t.co/cbPrLPAEEP

Nugent has a history of making outrageous comments, including calling President Obama a “subhuman mongrel” on the Ben Ferguson Show, where he also attacked the president as a lying, law-breaking racist who engages in Nazi tactics.
The term “subhuman mongrel” is as racist as what Roseanne Barr called former Obama counselor Valerie Jarrett, but the rocker just rocked on at the time.
During a 2007 concert, Nugent also said: “Obama, he’s a piece of shit, and I told him to suck on my machine gun. Let’s hear it for him. And then I was in New York. I said, ‘Hey, Hillary, you might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless b*tch.'”
Nugent visited Trump in the White House last year for dinner along with former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and the singer Kid Rock was photographed with a smiling Trump.
Even then they went out of their way to disrespect Mrs. Clinton. The trio posed smirking in a mocking photo in front of a portrait of Hillary Clinton from her days as First Lady.
They purposely staged the photo to mock Secretary Clinton with Nugent making a hand gesture like a baseball umpire to signify “You’re out.”
Palin had been invited by Trump for what became a four-hour dinner and was told she could bring guests. She brought her daughter, Kid Rock, and Nugent.
Their behavior was criticized afterward.
“As a former vice presidential candidate and a female politician, Palin has faced the same sexism and misogyny that Clinton endured during her presidential run,” reported Carbonated.TV. “While the two may have vastly different political views, their experiences as women trying to infiltrate a male-dominated White House are parallel.”
“This is why many people are disturbed by the fact that Palin would be cozying up to the likes of Ted Nugent and Trump, who have greatly disrespected Clinton and women, in general.”
On CNN, Democratic strategist Paul Begala chastized Palin for bringing Nugent to the White House at all: “It’s kind of unfortunate that she’s buddying up with Nugent who has — he’s a rocker and I’m not going to get all gassed up about it — but he has said the most vile things about Hillary you could say.”
That led Chelsea Clinton to tweet after pictures were published from the dinner last year:

So excuse Chelsea Clinton if she is not completely sympathetic to her one time friend Ivanka Trump now that she has been called the “C” word.
