Popular comedian Chelsea Handler has never been afraid to say what is on her mind. Thankfully for us, Handler is a dyed-in-the-wool liberal, and her fearlessness has come in handy in pointing out ugly truths about people in fascistic Republican President Donald Trump’s camp.
Handler recently took White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to task with a hilarious rant that served as an x-ray of evangelical Christian Sanders’ complete lack of character or actual morals. This clearly struck a nerve with Sarah’s father, pastor and former Republican Arkansas Govenor Mike Huckabee, who struck back at Chelsea on Fox News.
Last Friday, Handler interrupted an interview on her Netflix series to voice her disdain for Trump’s press bully Sanders, commenting, “That harlot that they’re dressing up and trolloping out every day? I mean, one day she has no makeup on at all, the next she has six-foot-long eyelashes, she’s got cleavage and summer whore lipstick all over her face. Can you believe what they turned her into? A proper trollop.”
Huckabee was not pleased with his good Christian daughter being described in such terms, and ventured onto Fox News’ safest Trumper safe space Fox & Friends to blast Handler in return. Said Huckabee, “I’m surprised that there were not women on the left who at least had the decency to call her out for this. I know you’re probably expecting me to be very angry about this, but truthfully, when I read what she said and then I watched it, I felt sorry for her.” He added, “I feel sad for Chelsea Handler. She seems like a very angry and bitter person. Look, she’s almost as old as me. So this is a point in her life, she needs to start mellowing out. And she seems to be just in a rage. The sad thing about it, she boasts about the two abortions she had at sixteen. I think in many ways she’s jealous of my daughter.” Huckabee then contrasted Chelsea with his virtuous, Trump-defending daughter, stating, “My daughter has a husband who loves her and is wonderful to her. My daughter has three delightful children. She’s a happy, balanced person. My daughter has enjoyed life. She’s a pretty straight-laced person. She goes to church and lives a life Chelsea Handler has never known.” He concluded about Chelsea, “There’s something deep inside of Chelsea Handler that says, ‘I’ve missed out on a lot, I could be raising children, but I aborted them.’” Do you find Huckabee’s defense of his daughter’s morality and values laughable?
