On Monday night’s Special Report, Charles Krauthammer weighed in on the controversy surrounding Ivanka Trump sitting in for her father during a meeting at the G20 Summit and the Twitter exchange between President Trump and Chelsea Clinton.
If Chelsea Clinton were asked to hold the seat for her mother,as her mother gave our country away, the Fake News would say CHELSEA FOR PRES!

Good morning Mr. President. It would never have occurred to my mother or my father to ask me. Were you giving our country away? Hoping not. https://t.co/4ODjWZUp0c

“This is absurd,” Krauthammer reacted. “Look, I think you don’t do that. If you’re a republic and a democracy, you don’t put a daughter in the seat saying ‘United States of America.’ We’re not a monarchy.”
Despite the criticism, he said it was “no big deal” and then went on to slam the G20 Summit as a whole, calling it “preposterous.”
“In all the years that we’ve had them, for decades,” he elaborated, “has anything ever come out of a G20 that meant anything? The answer is ‘no.’ It was absurdly hyped and you end up with these absurd arguments over little things.”
