Chelsea Clinton has taken on a more aggressive persona ever since her mother’s defeat in the 2016 election.
She’s become a vocal spokeswoman in the so-called “resistance” to Trump.
But some massive lies have found her in big trouble.
Chelsea tweeted out two stories which turned out to be “fake news”.
Her first attack was on the Trump administration for allegedly deleting information regarding “global warming” from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) website.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
“Clinton sent out one story on Wednesday that described how climate data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is “disappearing” from its website, in an apparent swipe at President Donald Trump, who has questioned the existence of climate change.”
She promptly deleted her tweet after one user pointed out her claim was a hoax and that the NOAA had simply moved the information to another URL.
@Laurie_Garrett @ChelseaClinton @NOAA It seems to be at a different URL: https://t.co/lBHzcPKYEa

But Chelsea did not back down from the second lie she tweeted out.
@ChuckRossDC Sadly, the Arkansas law is all too real. Thankfully, the other WAS mistaken & I corrected once I realized it.

She was outraged over a pro-life law recently passed in Arkansas that banned implementing the dismemberment procedure for abortions.
Chelsea falsely claimed the bill would now allow rapists to sue for damages if their victims had an abortion.
But the law only allows family members, spouses, and legal guardians to sue “doctors” who perform this barbaric procedure for damages.
As the Free Beacon reports, the bill does not allow for any penalties to be awarded in cases where the pregnancy resulted from a criminal act:
“However, a fact check conducted by the website Snopes, which reports on false internet stories, found that Clinton was wrong about the abortion article.
Clinton retweeted a story from the Independent that said Arkansas “passed a law that will let rapists sue victims who want an abortion.” The law in question, though, expressly prohibits damages from being awarded when a terminated pregnancy began from a criminal act. In other words, rape victims cannot be sued for getting an abortion.
The law, titled the Arkansas Unborn Child Protection From Dismemberment Abortion, bans abortions through the dismemberment of the fetus by making this procedure a felony, according to Snopes. But JR Davis, spokesman for Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, pointed to the following passage in the law: “Civil damages shall not be awarded to a plaintiff if the pregnancy resulted from the criminal conduct of the plaintiff.”
“Thus, a rapist cannot sue his victim and reap any benefits from doing so,” Snopes reported. “Furthermore, the law excludes a woman ‘who receives or attempts to receive a dismemberment abortion’ from civil liability.”
After two massive failures on social media, Chelsea may want to take a step back from the spotlight for a while – until she can tell the difference between real news and fake news.
