Disgusting. Insulting. Ignorant.
Any other choice adjectives you want to throw out here, America?
Let’s just acknowledge right off the bat that Chelsea Handler, one of late-night TV’s comedic talk show hosts – and a vulgar one at that – isn’t exactly known for her intellect.
Rather, she’s pretty coarse and loud-mouthed. And really, that’s fine; after all, everybody’s got to make a living and if that works for her, so be it. Howard Stern did a good job of that, I suppose.
But something she just said recently rises to the level of reportable, mostly because it demonstrates just how hypocritical the left can be when protecting one of its own.
And what she said is yet another insult flung in the face of First Lady Melania Trump, who has already suffered several slings and arrows. Now, Handler crosses the line and to put it bluntly, if a member of the conservative-minded community said what Handler just did, the mainstream media would be up in arms.
But because it was Handler, and Handler’s a far left, and her comment was aimed at striking President Trump and his family, then it’s acceptable. It’s all fun and games.
When asked if she would ask President Trump or first lady Melania Trump to be guests on her show, Breitbart reported that Handler replied:
“No. Melania? To talk about what? She can barely speak English.“
She then added that she didn’t “respect either one of those people.”
OK. But the thing is: Switch the scenario a bit and see how hypocritical the left truly is.
If, say, Brian Kilmeade, a Fox & Friends host who also happens to be a bit of a comedian himself, was asked if he would have far-left leaning Justin Trudeau, the prime minister of Canada, or Enrique Pena Nieto, the open-borders-minded president of Mexico, on as a featured guest, but said no because he wouldn’t be able to understand their accents – how incensed would the left be?
The media would go nuts, pointing out Kilmeade’s ignorance, likely labeling him a racist or bigot in the process.
But Handler’s comments? Tossed off as funny. The difference is she was mocking a conservative. And of course, you’re allowed to do that. Finally, beware, because you can expect more disgusting comments about the First Family in the coming months and years.
