At the Eleanor Roosevelt Memorial in Manhattan, Hillary Rodham Clinton and her daughter, Chelsea, look upon a 20th-century giant. “I think she was one of the greatest Americans in our history,” Hillary told “Sunday Morning” host Jane Pauley.

“She is a kind of transcendent figure over generations because of all that she did in her life,” Chelsea said.

Hillary added, “I just find that depiction of her to be as I imagine her – thoughtfully listening, taking it all in.”

And at the New York Historical Society, they handled a racquet from the hands of tennis legend Billie Jean King. And they examined a century-old banner from the Women’s Suffrage Movement. “I have one of these at my home,” Hillary said. “I have it over the fireplace; I look at it every day.”

The mementos breathe life into a collection of stories called “The Book of Gutsy Women,” co-authored by mother and daughter, and published by CBS’ Simon & Schuster.

On Friday, Sept. 6, 2019, The Associated Press reported on stories circulating online incorrectly asserting Clinton tweeted Sept. 1, “Hurricane Dorian has already devastated the Bahamas and is about to devastate the Great State of Florida. Please help us help the victims by giving a huge donation to Clinton Foundation Today. We rebuilt Haiti and we’ll rebuild Nassau and Orlando.” It was from a parody account with the moniker @MadamPresident to dupe users. Clinton’s real account is @HillaryClinton.
