Chelsea Clinton, daughter of Hillary and former President Bill Clinton, joined the political fray July 20. She slammed GOP Convention speakers for tossing “attack after attack” at her mom, including comparing her to “Lucifer.”

Chelsea made the remarks in a fundraising email to Democratic supporters, a copy of which was obtained by TheImproper.

Trump has paraded his kids by three different wives in front of convention television cameras.

So it only seemed a matter of time before Chelsea was enlisted to answer back.

Her fundraising appeal provided the opportunity to rip GOP convention speakers for their scathing remarks.

“My mom is compassionate, kind, and hardworking — when I was growing up, it seemed like she could do anything,” Chelsea said in the email.

“She’d spend all day in court litigating on behalf of children and families, then come home and ask me over dinner what I learned in school, what my favorite part of my day was, and what I hoped would happen tomorrow.

“And then she would sit with me while I did my homework or practiced the piano or worked on my science project,” she said.

Set fired a broadside at the GOP:

“When Republicans repeatedly get on stage at their national convention and toss attack after attack at my mom, calling her things I’d never say in front of my children — let alone on live TV — they’re talking about a caricature they’ve imagined, not the woman I love and respect.”

Republicans have relentlessly attacked Hillary Clinton both on the campaign trail and in Congress.

A GOP Congressional investigation ino Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens’ 2012 death in Benghazi, Libya, turned into nothing more than a prolonged, government-financed character assassination.

A federal investigation into her use of a private server to handle official State Department emails as Secretary of State also failed to yield charges.

But that hasn’t stopped the Republican onslaught against her character.

Failed Republican candidate Ben Carson veered wildly off script during his convention address last night night, and linked Clinton to the devil.

“One of the things I have learned about Hillary Clinton is that one of her heroes is Saul Alinsky,” Carson said about the radical ’60s organizer.

For her part, Clinton has never claimed Alinsky is her hero or role-model. But that detail went un-noticed by Carson.

“So are we willing to elect someone as president who has as their role model somebody who acknowledges Lucifer?” he said.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, another failed GOP presidential candidate acted out Clinton’s “trial.” Of course, he found her guilty.

The former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who has become a GOP hatchet man, accused Clinton of “dereliction of duty” over Benghazi.

He also accused her of “lying directly” to family members of those killed, even though Stevens’ wife has said publicly that Clinton is not to blame. She also charged that Republicans were politicizing his death.

Chelsea Clinton did her best to soften her mother’s image, as TheImproper has reported.

“My mom has been fighting for everyday Americans for as long as I can remember,” she said in the email.

“She’s smart, she’s strong, and she never forgets who she is fighting for and why. I can’t wait to vote for her as our next president — but she needs to know that we’re with her right now,” she added in the pitch for money.
