Chelsea Clinton resurfaces Trump meeting with Ted Nugent, who once called Hillary C-word
Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of former President Clinton, on Thursday resurfaced a photo of President Trump meeting with Ted Nugent, who once called her mother a “toxic c—,” after the White House condemned Samantha Bee for using the slur about Ivanka Trump.
Clinton shared a tweet by Shareblue writer Oliver Willis, who put a transcript of Nugent’s use of the crude term next to an image of the musician with Trump. Willis captioned the photos “something something something samantha bee fake outrage something.”
“I keep hoping for consistency too, Oliver. Though I’m not holding my breath!” Clinton tweeted.

Nugent had used the term to describe then-first lady Hillary Clinton during a 1994 interview with music magazine “Westword.”
“You probably can’t use the term ‘toxic c—’ in your magazine, but that’s what she is,” Nugent said of Hillary Clinton. “Her very existence insults the spirit of individualism in this country. This bitch is nothing but a two-bit whore for Fidel Castro.”
Bee apologized Thursday after she called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c—” during her show Wednesday night.
The White House had sharply condemned Bee’s comments, saying TBS’s “Full Frontal” is “not fit for broadcast.”
Nugent visited the White House last year, along with former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) and Kid Rock. The three posed for photos with Trump in the Oval Office, and also took a mocking picture in front of a portrait of the former first lady.
The musician promised last year after the shooting at a congressional baseball practice that he would stop saying “anything that can be interpreted as condoning or referencing violence.”
A National Rifle Association board member, Nugent recently slammed the Parkland school shooting survivors as “soulless” and “ignorant” over their efforts to protest gun violence.
