During last night’s broadcast Fox News’ The Five, contributor Lisa Boothe tore into former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, claiming that she was so craven that she’d sell her only child to become leader of the free world.
As the panel discussed the latest developments in the Donald Trump Jr./Russian meeting story, focusing much of their attention on claims that Loretta Lynch allowed the Russian lawyer into the country for the June 2016 meeting, Boothe decided to take aim at former Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook.
“We’ve also seen so much self-righteous indignation to people that have no business being self-righteous,” she exclaimed. “I absolutely love the fact that Robby Mook is talking about this.”
Boothe, filling in for regular co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle, then pivoted to lobbing attacks at Clinton, arguing why she feels Clinton and her allies have no business being the “voices of authority on morality.”
“He literally worked for the most soulless person on this planet who would literally sell her daughter to be president,” she stated. “If she could sell her only child to be president. I mean, that’s how much she wants it.”
This morning, after Yashar Ali shared the clip on Twitter, Clinton’s daughter Chelsea tweeted out a defense of her mother:
No, she wouldn’t. I’ve never doubted & always known I was the most important part of her life. Now as a mom I’m even more grateful to my mom https://t.co/IZE4ZSUVOs

Finally, there is one question that needs to be asked based on Boothe’s declaration — if Hillary is “literally” willing to sell her child to be president, why didn’t she do that during the two times she ran in the past?
