A Clinton Family Tradition …

… of attacking people for asking obvious questions. In this case, a pro-Hillary college journalist’s intended softball was batted back into his face:

INDIANAPOLIS (CBS/AP) ― The college student who got a stinging brushback from Chelsea Clinton when he asked about her mother’s handling of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, said Wednesday he is a Clinton supporter who was simply trying to give her daughter an opportunity to show people “what makes Hillary so strong.”
Evan Strange, a Butler University student who also works on the school’s newspaper, The Butler Collegian, said he had asked Chelsea Clinton at her appearance Tuesday at the school for her opinion “on the criticism of her mother that how she handled the Lewinsky scandal might be a sign of weakness and she might not be a strong enough candidate to be president.”
… Strange’s question brought a stinging rebuke from Clinton’s daughter. “Wow, you’re the first person actually that’s ever asked me that question in the, I don’t know maybe, 70 college campuses I’ve now been to, and I do not think that is any of your business,” Chelsea Clinton said during the campaign visit for her mother.

If this is really the first time Chelsea’s been asked about the scandal that defined her father’s presidency in 70 campus campaign stops, that says a lot more about the other 69 campuses than it does about Evan Strange of Butler. Way to ask the tough questions, college editors.
