Politico, always eager to pursue the really big stories, reached out to a bunch of astrologers for their “insight” into Chelsea Clinton’s new baby and, wouldn’t you know it, they know just by looking at some meaningless star charts exactly what the baby’s life is going to be like.
After Chelsea Clinton and Mark Mezvinsky’s daughter was born at 7:03 pm at Lenox Hill Hospital on Manhattan’s Upper East Side on Friday, POLITICO asked astrologers to weigh in on what is written in the stars for the former first daughter’s first daughter.
“She may not follow her family’s politics, but she will follow the family’s activism and social justice and finding a way to serve the world, following in that community organizing path and picking up the roots of her grandparents,”said Ophira Edut, of the AstroTwins and co-author of the book “Momstrology: The AstroTwins’ Guide to Parenting your Little One by the Stars.”
“[Charlotte] is a Libra geared towards relationships, getting along, diplomacy, judicial matters and good breeding,” said Terry Nazon, host of iHeart Radio show “Terry Nazon’s Astrology Nation.” “This little Libra will be geared towards service to others, to fighting for the underdog and for the rights of others.”
Nazon also said that the stars show that Charlotte will “make a great lawyer or judge one day.”
“Unlike most Libra’s who are social butterflies, we will not see her as superficial or casual,” she added. “Charlotte is a deep thinker and will have very few friends that she lets get close to her.”
The author of the article is Kendall Breitman, who is clearly a hack. I’ve been a journalist. If an editor asked me to write a story like that, I’d suggest a particularly tight space into which they could jam such a request.
