Chelsea Clinton is living proof that having an Ivy League education does not equate intelligence. Earlier this week, Clinton took issue with a Lincoln Day Dinner program that featured an image of Abraham Lincoln wearing Donald Trump’s iconic “Make America Great Again” hat:

Yes, Chelsea, it is photoshopped. And Twitter responded with cutting sarcasm:
No, Lincoln actually wore that hat in 1865; it was found at Ford’s Theater. https://t.co/SblPYHNnf0

Rush Limbaugh got in on the ridicule, too, saying on his radio show: “Remember Chelsea Clinton, Abe Lincoln once said, ‘Do not believe everything you read on the Internet.’ Famous Lincoln quote.”
Hopefully this was a valuable lesson in semantics for her.
