(Newser) – After Monday's debate, Donald Trump noted that "everything I wanted to say I got out, except for the transgressions of Bill [Clinton]." He explained that he didn't want to bring up Gennifer Flowers or Monica Lewinsky "with Chelsea in the room," and that he was "very happy" he was "able to hold back on the indiscretions," People reports. Responds the Clinton daughter: "Well, my reaction to that is just what my reaction has been kind of every time Trump has gone after my mom or my family, which is that it’s a distraction from his inability to talk about what’s actually at stake in this election and to offer concrete, comprehensive proposals about the economy, or our public school system, or debt-free college, or keeping our country safe and Americans safe here at home and around the world," she tells Cosmopolitan.

"And candidly, I don’t remember a time in my life when my parents and my family weren’t being attacked, and so it just sort of seems to be in that tradition, unfortunately," she continues. "And what I find most troubling by far are Trump's ... continued, relentless attacks on whole swaths of our country and even our global community: women, Muslims, Americans with disabilities, a Gold Star family. I mean, that, to me, is far more troubling than whatever his most recent screed against my mom or my family [is]." (Earlier this month, Chelsea addressed the state of her friendship with Ivanka Trump.)
