AWKWARD: Chelsea was asked to autograph a book and refused, all because…

Chelsea Clinton is probably positioning herself for an eventual political run — and her parents’ scandals are going to haunt her.

She’s out with a new children’s book called “She Persisted,” a title borrowed from a feminist rallying cry attributable to Elizabeth Warren’s opposition to the appointment of Jeff Sessions. 

The book is aimed at kids (mainly girls) aged four to eight, and profiles 13 American women (among them including Helen Keller, Oprah, and Sonia Sotomayor). Throughout the book, it documents the adversity that each woman faced, all with the dictum “nevertheless, she persisted.”

While her book is one about women not taking “no” for an answer, she did refuse service to one woman attempting to get her book signed by Chelsea.

Rebel Media journalist Laura Loomer attended a book signing Chelsea was doing in New York City, purchased a copy of the book, and then asked her to sign it for “my friend Juanita Broaddrick, a woman who was silenced, but persisted.” Broaddrick gained notable attention during the 2016 Presidential election as one of Bill Clinton’s rape accusers, and was present at the second presidential debate.

Things got awkward pretty quickly…

What a bummer — hopefully Loomer got a refund.
