Hillary Clinton and her daughter Chelsea are once again making headlines, but this time it’s not for their failed presidential campaign or controversial political decisions. No, this time they’re causing a stir for winning an Emmy award for their documentary about Afghanistan’s youngest female mayor. The documentary, titled “In Her Hands,” takes a deep dive into the life of Zarifa Ghafari and the country’s history.
Now, it’s no surprise that the responses to the Clintons’ Emmy win were less than favorable. After all, they have a long history of controversy and scandal. One Twitter user even sarcastically pointed out, “Well, since you couldn’t win the Presidency, I guess an Emmy will have to do.” Ouch! But it’s not just the Emmy win that has people rolling their eyes. Some users couldn’t help but make snarky comments about the Clintons’ personal lives, with one person jokingly writing, “Here I thought ‘In Her Hands’ was a documentary about Bill and Monica.”
It’s clear that the public’s opinion of the Clintons hasn’t changed much over the years. Even in the face of an Emmy win, they still can’t shake the criticism and skepticism. One Twitter user summed it up perfectly, saying, “Criminal family makes feel-good film to divert attention from their criminal activities.” It seems that no matter what the Clintons do, they can’t win over their skeptics. But hey, at least they have an Emmy to add to their collection now.
