Chelsea Clinton was visibly angry after getting mocked by Vanessa Bayer. It happened at the Variety Magazine Power of Women Luncheon in New York City. The event was intended to honor women who have used their positions of power to bring attention to worthy causes. This year, honorees included Chelsea Clinton, Jessica Chastain, Gayle King, Blake Lively, Tina Knowles, Audra McDonald, and Shari Redstone.
Vanessa Bayer was hosting the event. Bayer kicked it off by introducing the women being honored, and after listing the names, made a ruthless joke:
“They all have one thing in common. None of their moms are president.” – Vanessa Bayer
The ruthless joke was immediately met with widespread groans from the crowd. Chelsea Clinton didn’t appear very amused by the joke. She fired back at Bayer when she accepted her award:
“Vanessa, we may be able to say in this room today that no one’s mother is currently president, but some day, someone’s will be.” – Chelsea Clinton
