The Five airs nightly on Fox News and regularly features a roundtable of pundits sharing their views. On Friday night's episode, the conversation veered into the Russia scandal, during which the hosts heatedly debated the consequences of a possible Trump impeachment.
During a particularly heated exchange, panelist Lisa Marie Boothe took the conversation a step further by suggesting that Hillary Clinton would "sell her daughter" to become president of the United States.

The next morning, Hillary's daughter, Chelsea, took to Twitter to dispute the absurd suggestion and praise her mother as a parent.
No, she wouldn't. I've never doubted & always known I was the most important part of her life. Now as a mom I'm even more grateful to my mom https://t.co/IZE4ZSUVOs

For the most part, Twitter had Chelsea's back...
Isn't it amazing Chelsea - when we become moms, our love for our own mother just deepen.

Even author Anne Rice came to Hillary and Chelsea's defense.
Chelsea, I admire you & your mother so very much. You have endured a campaign of persecution that no two people should ever have to endure.

Actress Alyssa Milano weighed in with support as well.
You are both special women. They go low...

She suggested that Chelsea's response is a perfect demonstration of Michelle Obama's inspiring motto from last year's Democratic National Convention.
