On Saturday, Chelsea Clinton tweeted an article about a Girl Scout program that helps reunite children with their mothers who are in prison.
Inside a Girl Scout Program That Brings Kids to Prison to See Their Moms https://t.co/I4SV5ZoyDw

The program helps scouts make it to prison once a month to visit their mothers, play games, enjoy a meal, and basically enjoy being around one another. From the Time article:
Girl Scouts Beyond Bars began in Maryland in 1992, and there are now nearly 20 versions of it run by troops around the country. It’s unclear how many girls the program has helped in total, since Girl Scouts U.S.A. said it does not track numbers nationally. In Texas, more than 160 girls have participated in Girl Scouts Beyond Bars since its inception, according to Garcia-Baab. The Texas program offers counseling to about 30 girls each year who are between 5 and 18 years old and typically come from low-income households. The children can stay in the program until they age out at 18.
In case they think they bother her, Chelsea decided to make it very clear that she considers them as irrelevant and useless as Trump is proving to be, telling one she hopes she’s having “a lovely Saturday.”
To think that just last year, these people were throwing tantrums over Secretary Clinton’s use of the word “Deplorables” to describe them. They are deplorable. They are, as Clinton said, “irredeemable.”
Cruelty is the Trump supporter’s M.O.
