NYT: Just Like Her Mom, Chelsea Clinton Can't Get A Break.
You see, she didn't get a lifetime achievement award. She got an achievement award from Variety in conjunction with the Lifetime TV channel. And punctuation was wrong. So...really...it's just too bad for Chelsea.
When it comes to accepting prizes for charitable contributions, Chelsea is in no way an outlier. Everyone in her income bracket has a shelf full of honors. Luncheon ceremonies are a way to publicly thank big-name benefactors, get them to show up to the event, and therefore attract other donors and media interest. Ivanka Trump, for example — just picking someone at random here — is no stranger to vanity awards. She has been honored by organizations such as the European School of Economics and the Diamond Empowerment Fund’s GOOD Awards. (Tagline: “Diamonds do good.”)
But Chelsea, like her mother, never gets a break — unlike Ivanka and her father.
The “Lifetime achievement” mistake was an error of capitalization that became a convenient Internet cudgel at a time when Democrats are focused on resistance, uneasy about class politics, and searching for the next generation of leaders. Meanwhile, in the real world, the Trump administration announced that Ivanka would be getting her own White House office and high-level security clearance — despite her father’s insistence that none of his children would enjoy such privileges after his election. Nepotism is a charge that the Trumps find easy to circumnavigate. Not so for the Clintons.
