Sitting down for a friendly chat with Chelsea Clinton on Tuesday’s NBC Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie sympathized with her one-time network colleague over Hillary Clinton’s “devastating” loss in the 2016 election: “Well, we know of course that your mom is a woman who inspires you....She’s actually been more in the spotlight recently, and really, I think, seeming to open up about the emotional process of dealing with an election loss. She’s called it a ‘crushing and devastating blow.’”

Guthrie fretted: “Set politics aside, just as a human, what has it been like for you as a daughter to see her kind of go through this process?” Predictably, Clinton gushed: “Well, I find my mother even more inspiring today than I did yesterday or last year or the year before that. She’s working on her book, and so as she said, I think that’s helping her process and heal.”
