Chelsea Handler, the darling of the late-night vulgar crowd who get their news from comedy shows and use the snarky points to feed their leftist hunger, entered political la-la land to try and slam Donald Trump supporters.
Only problem was, her points didn’t really make sense. In fact, her Point A and Point B were kind of in conflict with each other.
“In a politically-charged essay penned this week, comedian and talk show host Chelsea Handler blasted and shamed female voters who supported Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton in the presidential election, before encouraging women in the same essay to come together to support each other.”
What? Yes, you read that right.
Evidently, support to Handler means cutting someone down, casting them as shameful and stupid – but then demanding they come together in your circle of one.
“We don’t just have a problem with men supporting women in this country,” she wrote, Breitbart reported, citing Arianna Huffington’s new wellness company, Thrive Global, where the essay appeared. “We have a problem with women supporting women.”
Apparently, we have a problem with comedians supporting logic as well.
“One of the saddest things about November 8,” Handler wrote, “were the women of America who somehow managed to vote for Donald Trump, specifically the 53 percent of all white female voters who chose Mr. Trump. … [W]hat kind of a woman votes for a white, entitled rich guy who has spent his entire life working the system for excess personal profit?”
She then wondered why these white female voters wouldn’t choose Clinton, “arguably the most qualified presidential candidate in modern American history,” and praised the 94 percent of black women who did vote for the former secretary of state.
“Unlike white women,” Handler said, Breitbart reported, “black women don’t take their rights, liberties or justice for granted.”
Hmm. That’s an interesting theory. No proof, of course, but it sounds good, anyway.
“Ladies,” she summed, “we can do better than this. … We need to rise up and use our votes to help ourselves and to stop hurting ourselves.”
How, Ms. Handler? By insulting and dismissing the voices who don’t agree with yours? Good plan – except that seems to be the means of Democratic operation, and as Election Day reminds, voters by and large seem to have rejected that elitism.
