Lisa Boothe filled in as a guest host on Fox News’ The Five on Friday, and as the panel discussed Russia and President Donald Trump, Boothe pivoted to Hillary Clinton’s presidential ambitions.

Though Boothe said the big winner of the Russia controversy is Vladimir Putin, who she said is “probably riding shirtless on a horse off into the sunset chugging vodka, as America descends into chaos,” she also took a shot at Clinton and her daughter, Chelsea Clinton.

It didn’t take long for Chelsea Clinton to respond. Here’s what she tweeted Saturday morning.

Say this for Chelsea Clinton: She doesn’t fall into the Twitter mistake of posting something snarky or mean in response to someone who has insulted her mom. Instead, she’s composed on social media and lays out the facts as she sees them, and as a result, her responses, as we saw when she defended Barron Trump, usually end the confrontation on a positive note.
