Hillary Clinton reveals she and Bill once accidentally left daughter Chelsea in the Kremlin


Hillary Clinton revealed she and her husband Bill Clinton once accidentally left their daughter at the Kremlin during a state visit to Russia years ago.

The former First Lady appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, alongside her daughter Chelsea Clinton, 42, on Tuesday night.

As part of the interview, the pair took part in a Mother Daughter Challenge, where they had to answer a series of questions asked by Fallon.

At one point during the segment, Clinton, 74, was asked about her “craziest family vacation memory.”

Taking a second to think, the mom-of-one remembered the time she and Bill managed to leave Chelsea in the Kremlin sometime during Bill’s time in office from 1993 until 2001.

“I hope she [Chelsea] doesn’t remember this because it was pretty traumatic,” the former Secretary of State began.

“We took her to Russia when we went on a state visit when Bill was president, and there were the formal goodbyes so Bill and I were ushered into the Beast, the big limousine, to head to the airport, not knowing that we had left her behind.

“I mean, can you imagine leaving my only child in the Kremlin? Especially with everything that has happened?”

Fallon later asked Chelsea what her craziest family vacation memory was, to which she also recalled the time she was left stranded in the Kremlin.

Elsewhere in their interview, Clinton praised Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky for his bravery after Russian President Vladimir Putin launched a large-scale invasion on Feb. 24.

“I am thrilled that they have gotten the support and solidarity of so much of the world,” Clinton said of Ukraine. “They’re getting the weapons they need to defend themselves, and they’re now on offense.”

“They were attacked by an unprovoked active war, and they’ve held out and done better than anybody could’ve predicted and Zelensky has been a true wartime leader — I’m so impressed with him. I think the United States should stand with them along with all of our other friends around the world,” she added.
