Chelsea Clinton is beginning to get mixed up in the daily political battles.
She is emerging as a vocal opponent of Donald Trump.
But something she just said has reminded everyone of one of her mother’s biggest lies.
Like virtually every Democrat, Chelsea Clinton criticized Donald Trump’s temporary pause in the refugee program from seven terrorist-connected nations.
She retweeted her mother’s blessing to the professional protestors who were causing chaos at airports across the country.
I stand with the people gathered across the country tonight defending our values & our Constitution. This is not who we are.

And Chelsea also snarked at Kellyanne Conway in a tweet after Conway had defended Trump’s executive orders by citing Obama’s subsequent slowdown of accepting Iraqi refugees for six months back in 201l and had accidentally misspoke regarding the “Bowling Green Massacre” – she meant two Iraqi refugees were arrested for trying to commit an act of terror In Bowling Green, Kentucky – a mistake she quickly clarified.
Very grateful no one seriously hurt in the Louvre attack …or the (completely fake) Bowling Green Massacre. Please don’t make up attacks.

But conservatives quickly pointed out that one of Hillary’s biggest lies – which tripped up her campaign in 2008 – was her fabrication of having to escape sniper fire upon landing in Bosnia in 1996.
Hillary had claimed at the time:
“I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.”
But this was all false.
News footage showed Clinton being welcomed on the tarmac and even greeting a child.
Glad your mom survived the gunfire in Bosnia. https://t.co/pJzOqUZOjH

Conway fired back and threw Hillary’s gigantic lie back in Chelsea’s face in an epic smack down.
Bosnia lie a Great reminder. And 2 @ChelseaClinton & others, you can’t “invent” quality candidates either. I misspoke; you lost the election https://t.co/7TwnX2b5yA

Chelsea Clinton appears to be getting ready to enter the family business of politics.
And it looks to include taking up the Clinton mantle of lying.
