Chelsea Clinton is famous in this country simply for being the daughter of former president and two-time failed presidential candidate Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Her career has been marked by using her last name to achieve high-profile positions at consulting firms, NBC News, and her family’s Clinton Foundation, rather than earning such roles through hard work.
Now, Ms. Clinton is once again profiting off of her last name, and will receive an “Impact Award” from Variety magazine in partnership with Lifetime.
Clinton is being honored “for her work with Alliance for a Healthier Generation, which empowers kids to develop lifelong healthy habits.”

From The Hill:
The 37-year-old former first daughter, a vice chair of the Clinton Foundation, is rumored to be eyeing a run for a New York Senate seat in 2020 should Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D) decide to run for president, the New York Daily News reported last month.
Variety, in partnership with Lifetime, will hand out the “Impact Honorees” awards during its annual “Women in Power” luncheon at the ritzy Cipriani restaurant in midtown Manhattan on April 18.
More than 400 entertainment and media insiders are expected to attend, according to event organizers. The event will be hosted by “Saturday Night Live” cast member Vanessa Bayer.
I think the “Bulls*** Award” from the “D.C. Swampies” she was also nominated for may be more fitting.
Many people took to Twitter to mock the idea of Ms. Clinton receiving an award, when her entire career is based on the fact that she has a famous last name:
Chelsea Clinton is the face of “white privilege.”

Do you think it’s ridiculous for Chelsea to receive any kind of award given her lack of real world work? Would she ever receive any award if her last name wasn’t Clinton? Share your thoughts below!
