Bill Sent Grand Total of Two Emails, Chelsea Gives Driest Answer Ever

Earlier this month, SiriusXM P.O.T.U.S.’ Tim Farley sat down with former President Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton at the fifth annual Clinton Global Initiative University.  CGI U convenes approximately 1,000 students from all over the world with nonprofit leaders, entrepreneurs, and celebrities engaged in efforts to create positive change.

Clinton spoke on the Internet age. At no point does he confirm that his V.P. Al Gore created it. He said he sent two emails while in office (which is probably a good thing all things considered?):

“When I took office the average cell phone weighed five pounds, and there were 50 sites on the entire internet—50! More than that has gotten added since this interview started. And the emails were being subpoenaed by Congress so I sent a grand total of two. Keep in mind that in the beginning, there were no emails in the way that we came to think of them during the 90s. They were inter-office communication, and the first emails were sent over the internet so research physicists and national defense related technologies could share their findings immediately. And to answer to your question is…young people can have a disproportionate role in this space because they are more tech-savvy.”

Details: Farley’s one-on-one interviews with the Clintons will be featured on “Politics Aside: A Conversation with the Clintons,” debuting April 20 at 6 pm ET on SiriusXM P.O.T.U.S. (ch.124). Encore presentations will air on April 21 at 7 am, 1 pm and 7 pm; on April 22 at 1 am and 2 pm; and on April 23 at 3 am.

Farley asks Chelsea the funniest question ever — “Are you enjoying making a difference?” What’s she going to say? ‘Well,  as a matter-of-fact, no, Tim. I hate making a difference.” She replies, “I am, deeply.” At least she kept that monstrosity brief. See Chelsea’s infinitely drier answer…Tim Farley: “What’s it like being on that side of the camera?”

Chelsea Clinton: “I feel very privileged to have the chance to highlight not only people in organizations who are making a difference for the difference they’re making, but who are doing things that I really believe are scalable, in the sense that more of a difference can be made if those organizations were to have even more resources, and not just money but to find other people in organizations who are similarly purposed and committed. But also to highlight, potentially, models, either for other communities facing similar challenges, or for communities that are facing different sorts challenges but can learn something instrumental.  And that’s really also why I’m so committed to CGI U. Hearing the students talk about what they’re learning from one another and what they’re going to build together is by far what invigorates me most about this weekend.”
