Chelsea Clinton views her mother's defeat in the 2016 presidential election as an "unexpected blessing."

During an appearance on ABC's "The View" on Wednesday, the conversation quickly turned to how Hillary Clinton is coping with losing to President Trump.

"A little chardonnay maybe, and a lot of Charlotte," Clinton joked, referring to her 2.5-year-old daughter, Hillary Clinton's granddaughter.

Clinton said she and her family, which also includes her son, Aiden, who was born last summer, have helped Hillary Clinton get over the 2016 contest by spending time with her.

"The unexpected blessing has been all the time we've been able to spend together as a family," Clinton said.

She then went on to describe how the family helped plant a garden at her parent's home in Chappaqua, N.Y. "Seeing my mother and father dig in the dirt with my daughter was just such an unforeseen gift," she said.

Clinton was also asked, once again, if she is planning a run for political office in 2020. Clinton, as usual, demurred, but didn't necessarily say no.

"I hope that we have more women throwing their hat in the ring, and I look forward to supporting those women in the future," Clinton said.
