Trump has overclocked the right-wing hate machine with his constant stream of disgusting bigoted rhetoric. The Trumpsters are indiscriminate in their targeting, and no one is out of bounds. One of their favorite people to insult is Chelsea Clinton, daughter of Hillary and Bill. Their comments are often lowbrow and crude, but Clinton always rises above it.
Today, Twitter user @facbookacc, whose displayed name is Scott Phillips, insulted Clinton, calling her disgusting and irrelevant, before proceeding to insult her appearance:

True to form, Clinton issued a classy response. Rather than insult him back, she wished him well and told him to stay safe:

The exchange is a perfect example of the differences between the right and left in America. The pettiness and hatred emanating from Trump fans are absolute and self-destructive. Comparatively, those opposing Trump have an interest in the well-being of all Americans and the betterment of the country as a whole. Chelsea Clinton provides a beautiful example for all of us.
