THE View fans slammed Hillary Clinton for making “hypocritical” comments after a controversial interview aired on Wednesday.
The 2016 presidential candidate and her daughter Chelsea sparked debate when they discussed current events like the raid on Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort and promoted their new AppleTV+ show Gutsy.
Critics roared when The View host Alyssa Farah Griffin asked the former first lady’s daughter what it felt like to experience hate based on her parents.
“I don’t remember a time when there weren’t people who hate my family, hated my parents, who said hateful things to me when I was a kid,” Chelsea said.
She continued to say that as a parent, she now is concerned with the effects that social media can have on families.
“I think it’s an important conversation to have,” Chelsea explained.
“I also think it’s an important conversation to be having in our country because of how much our former president really mainlined hate.
“And I think we all have to be standing up against hate against women, against people of color, against people with disabilities, against trans Americans.”
The View fans slammed Chelsea for the sob story, saying that Hillary had her own fair share of comments that warranted criticism.
“Lol give me a break!!! Your mother spewed hate a lot,” one person said on Twitter.

Another user commented: “If you can’t remember a time when people didn’t hate your parents, that should tell you a lot about your parents.”
“You don’t stand up for women!!! Lol at who your parents are,” someone else said.
Joy Behar later asked Hillary if she believed Trump would be indicted over the documents seized from his Mar-a-Lago resort.
“We have to have two minds about this,” Hillary told the hosts.
“No one is above the law. And the rule of law in a democracy has to be our standard,” she said to resounding applause.
“But we should not rush to judgment. We should take it seriously.”
Online fans jumped at the chance to criticize Hillary’s comments and point out her own run-in with the law.
“Get away with it like Hillary?” one Twitter user said.
Another person commented, “So if no one is above the law, @HillaryClinton should be in prison, no?”
“Hilary Clinton talking about classified documents and how concerned she is, is laughable,” someone else said.
The View hosts raved about the Clintons’ new television series Gutsy which follows the two women as they speak to a variety of “female role models” like Kim Kardashian, Megan Thee Stallion, and Gloria Steinham.
“We’re all excited for you guys because of this new series,” Sara Haines said.
However, commenters ripped into the future television stars saying that Gutsy is just another desperate grab for attention.
“Hillary just trying to stay ‘relevant’ and dragging her silver spoon adult baby around for media attention, so they can have her run for office, like mommy did,” one Twitter user said.
“Sick of seeing these people!”
This comes as The View fans were divided over new host Alyssa Farah Griffin’s show attire that some called “unprofessional.”
