PICTURES SHOW CHELSEA DRUNK AND DISORDERLY

Pics Show Chelsea Drunk and Disorderly

Photographs showing former first daughter Chelsea Clinton staggering bleary eyed into a popular London watering hole will appear in next week's edition of the supermarket tabloid Globe Magazine.

The Globe's cover story headline, "Boozing Chelsea: Clinton Daughter Out of Control," appears over a photo of an unidentified friend grabbing Chelsea by the face in an apparent effort to keep her from passing out.

Other Globe photos show Clinton, eyes bloodshot and looking disoriented, reeling as she emerges from a car with friends, one of whom is steadying her by the arm as the group weaves its way into the popular London nightspot Groucho.

"I thought Chelsea was about to topple over," a source who witnessed the scene tells the tabloid. "She was wobbling on her feet and a friend had to put her arm out to steady her."

The Globe reprints one passage from a British media report that claims: "Looks like Chelsea Clinton stumbled on a staggeringly good time when she hit London's West End this week. And it took a firm pair of hands to stop her from actually hitting the pavement as she swayed happily into the trendy Groucho Club, where dad Bill - the former U.S. president - was partying with U2 star Bono."

The drunken night out was not an isolated incident, according to others cited by the Globe, one of whom said the former first daughter is "spinning out of control."

"Chelsea's out on the town into the early hours every chance she gets," a Clinton schoolmate adds. "She loves a good time, but everything seems to revolve around drinking."

If the reports are accurate, Clinton's problems with alcohol would mirror a family pattern that saw her Uncle Roger finally admit to a life-long addiction to booze and drugs just last summer after entering an Arizona drug rehab center to dry out.

Last month another of Chelsea's uncles, Tony Rodham, admitted that he was boozing and smoking marijuana with a neighbor before he ended up entwined on the living room couch with the man's girlfriend.

In her younger days Clinton's grandmother Virginia was a fixture on the Little Rock party scene, with one account describing her as "a barfly."

According to one friend quoted by the Globe, Chelsea has turned to liquor "as a defense against jokes about her father and Monica Lewinsky and jibes about Hillary."

"One night when somebody cracked a Clinton joke, she walked into the bar and ordered a double vodka on the rocks," the source told the tabloid. "She downed it in two swallows and then walked out."

Last week the New York Post's Page Six reported that Clinton attended a New York party with sportstars Michael Jordan, Derek Jeter and Ahmad Rashad where "bottles of Veuve Clicquot and vodka" were consumed, but made no mention of Chelsea herself bellying up to the bar.

The Globe reported in April that the former first daughter was spotted boozing it up for spring break at several popular nightspots in Aspen, Colo.

She's not a kid anymore.

Plus parents like Bill and Hill deserve no gifts anyways.

I kinda wish NewsMax would leave this stuff alone. The fact that an adult is drinking is hardly news, even if said adult is Chelsea Clinton. Conservatives complain that the press won't leave the Bush daughters alone, but don't hold themselves to the same standards.

She comes from a long line of folks who have no self-control. It's probably also an attempt to deaden the pain in her life. In any case, it's certainly no surprise....

The problem is that the press did not leave the Bush daughters alone. If the press is going to behave that way towards Bush, it ought to do the same for the Clintons, whatever conservatives or liberals say. It is a matter of consistency.

Agreed. The Bush girls didn't deserve it and neither does Chelsea (as much as I despise her parents.)

That is NOT a double standard. Chelsea Klinton stepped over the line when she was railing against President Bush's tax cut in a magazine about her 9-11 story. She is fair game now. The Bush daughters have done none of that.

I agree with you. It once was fun to catch Chelsea in a compromising spot, but since 9/11,
she has joined her father on the growing list of things now irrelevant.
This article is irrelevant, and so is Chelsea.

Tragic, really, when you think about it. She was brought into this world by two miserable miscreants not deserving to be parents and programmed from birth. Frankly, I'm surprised she hasn't committed suicide by now, in an attempt to escape having to live under the dark clouds of her "co-village parents".

I don't blame Chelsea, I blame Hill and Bill. They give her less attention than Johnny Walker Bin Ladan's parents.

Look for Chelsea to show up with her new boyfriend, a Taliban commander.

No, I think it was printed to make a point: That kids of a certain age will drink, and people should have laid off the Bush twins. Now if the conservative press starts running front-page photos of Chelsea drunk and starts making Chelsea drunk jokes in their magazines, then that would be hypocritical.

Can someone post this on DU to see how long it lasts?

There is a cadre of people over there that seem to worship the ground Chelsea walks upon while at the same time bashing the Bush twins for behaviour tamer than this.

I guess Newsmax has to sell those copper magnetic bracelets and so they publish this tabloid trash.

While I agree the press and the Taliban wing of the Dem party were too hard on the Bush children, I don't see the point of hounding this adult for tieing one on - as long as she didn't break the law, leave the Clintonspawn alone.

This family never changes, and neither do their enablers. It's always someone else's fault, and there is never an end to the number of excuses they will come up with to explain their behavior.

The article forgot to mention that clinton himself was a big boozer and used to snort five lines of coke a day. That's why his nose looks like it does.

As for Chelsea, she deserves some sympathy for being the daughter of her parents, but she's old enough to take responsibility for herself.

Besides which, has she turned out as she has because maybe 5% of the media reported the truth about her father and mother, while the other 95% adulated every move they made? Or is she like this because, unlike what the liberal, excuse-mongering liars in the media constantly try to tell us, that's what her father (and mother) actually are like?

I agree. There are lots of reasons not to like the Clintons, and plenty of legitimate ways to bash them. I don't have any feelings one way or the other about Chelsea Clinton, other than I pity her.

She's not attractive. She is sensitive to criticism of her parents. She's going through a fairly common stage of partying that shouldn't be unfamiliar to many college families.

The 9/11 story stretched credibility, but that was more than likely orchestrated by her mother...for political gain.

There's a lot more to pity than there is to dislike.

Yes, I do the same on Friday nights when I see all the Clinton jokes on FR. Except I only go to the 'fridge for a cold beer....yes, those Clinton jokes are responsible for my heavy weekend boozing....it's all the vrwc's fault!

First, let me make my claim that I hate the Clintons with all the passion that I hate Stalin, Lenin, Hitler and other moron power seekers.

That being said, however, I hardly find it strange that a person in her early twenties is "out of control" and drinking. If this kind of action were printed for every late-teen/early twenties kid in the nation, we'd run out of trees to print the newspapers that they were written in.

So what if she drinks. She was not elected to office and has every right to pursue whatever life she chooses. I don't like the !@#@#, but she has the right to be her own person, regardless of how "immoral" that may make her in other people's lives. Its called Liberty folks, get used to it.

Let her booze it up. It's her only escape from those things she was raised by.
Her whole life will be haunted by a lesbian dyke for a mother, and a rapist for a father. Both lieing, stealing, filthy political commie scum, and the world now knows it.
I'm suprised the kid hasn't offed herself by now. She may have even tried, but the Secret Service probably stopped her.
If the Clintons were my parents, I'd be dead or my name would be changed along with a little plastic surgery.
Imagine the girls discrace.

My lining? I'm not sure what you mean. As far as being ashamed, you're breaking my heart. This is a private citizen engaged in a legal behavior - printing it is tabloid trash at its worst. Conservatives should have more class than that.

"She loves a good time, but everything seems to revolve around drinking."

If I recall, when GW Bush was younger, he liked to have a good time and he liked to drink too. Besides, since when was drinking a lot and have a good time illegal. It's not like she committed perjery, bribery, witness intimidation, possibly blackmail, tax evasion, insider trading, s&l fraud, commodity insider trading, campaign fraud, campaign funding abuse and lawbreaking, illegal use and reuse of govt. property, selling state secrets, obstruction of justice, destroying evidence or treason like her mom and dad has done.

I don't think this is a big deal.

Your question wasn't addressed to me, but I'll answer. Yes, leave them all alone.

Damn, my behavior in college makes the whole lot them look like nuns by comparison... BTW, I regret that behavior. Thank the Lord that most of it never appeared in the national/international press.
