In a recent panel discussion, Chelsea Clinton said child marriage and climate change were ‘connected.’ Clinton spoke on a panel hosted by CARE, a left-wing charity that pushes wealth redistribution as ‘foreign aid.’
She also said that climate change was to blame for a number of societies ills:
“[We] carry multiple concerns in both our head and our heart. Just listening to the concerns around education and climate change, women’s health, child marriage, access to technology, all of those are of course interconnected. We have to focus on each of them in their interconnectedness.”
She also predictably blamed Donald Trump for a rise in sexism and bigotry:
“We have to realize, especially at this moment, that sexism is not an opinion. Islamophobia is not an opinion. Racism is not an opinion. Homophobia is not an opinion. Jingoism is not an opinion. So I think that in our posture of listening, we also have to get comfortable with standing up and speaking out.”
She later said that “health is a human right.” Not healthcare mind you, but health.
