Chelsea Clinton has slammed White House chief strategist Steve Bannon for his comment concerning Sean Spicer.
Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton has slammed White House chief strategist Steve Bannon for his "Sean got fatter" comment.
Clinton tweeted Tuesday, "The White House using fat shaming to justify increased opacity. 2017."
Bannon made the remark when the Atlantic inquired about the increasing frequency of off-camera White House press briefings.
The publication notes, “Neither [Press Secretary Sean] Spicer nor deputy press secretary Sarah Sanders responded to queries about the changes to the briefings. Asked why the briefings are now routinely held off-camera, White House chief strategist Steve Bannon said in a text message ‘Sean got fatter,’ and did not respond to a follow-up.”
On Twitter, when someone responded to Clinton's tweet, "It's a joke people," Clinton posted a follow-up tweet, "Oh ok. So using fat shaming to avoid answering questions about increasing opacity. Got it. 2017."
