Since Donald Trump moved in the White House, Chelsea Clinton has perfected the art of throwing polite shade at the president. Clinton’s reserved replies show an admirable restraint given the vicious attacks Trump has made on her parents. Last month, after Trump broke protocol by temporarily giving his G20 summit seat to his daughter Ivanka, he defended himself by saying that Hillary Clinton would have done the same for Chelsea.

On Tuesday, a story in Golf magazine quoted Trump as telling a member of his golf course that the “White House is a real dump.” Trump’s disdain for the people’s house does a huge discredit to those who’ve served in it for centuries as well as the staff who work tirelessly to keep in order. It also shows an obvious lack of respect for the U.S. presidency, a job that was once respected across the globe.

Clinton, who had the honor of living in the White House for eight years during her father’s presidency, responded to Trump by saluting those who work hard every day to keep the White House running smoothly and the first family happy.

Trump’s disrespectful comments about the most iconic residence in the world didn’t just bother Clinton.

In August, the Recording Academy hired their first female CEO, Deborah Dugan. Ten days before the Grammys, Dugan was placed on administrative leave for misconduct allegations after a female employee said Dugan was "abusive" and created a "toxic and intolerable" work environment. However, Dugan says she was actually removed from her position for complaining to human resources about sexual harassment, pay disparities, and conflicts of interest in the award show's nomination process.

Just five days before the Grammys, Dugan filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and her claims are many. Dugan says she was paid less than former CEO Neil Portnow. In 2018, Portnow received criticism for saying women need to "step up" when only two female acts won Grammys. Portnow decided to not renew his contract shortly after. Dugan says she was also asked to hire Portnow as a consultant for $750,000 a year, which she refused to do.
