Chelsea Handler hits back at criticism that she’s ‘too aggressive’ with her politics

Published

Chelsea Handler is not shutting up.

On Wednesday, the outspoken comedian posting a picture on Instagram of herself flipping the bird, with the caption, “Fuck you Jeff Sessions, gorsuch, Steve Bannon and trump. Fuck all of you.”

Apparently, a friend told her she was being “too political,” and “too aggressive” in her criticism of the president and his team, to which Handler replied”

“I am a white woman of a lot of privilege. I make a lot of money and I don’t have a lot of problems, and a lot of what this administration has proposed thus far won’t even affect me personally,” Handler confessed in her video. “I don’t need Planned Parenthood, I can pay for my own medical care. I’m not an immigrant, I was born here. I’m not Muslim. I’m not Mexican. I’m not black. I’m not gay, or transgender.”

Handler explained that she knows America is based on inclusiveness and welcoming people. She also said that as she understood it, the country is founded on loving people, despite differences.

It’s about “not worrying about how something impacts your life personally, but how it impacts all the people around you and all the people that aren’t around you,” she continued. “It’s compassion and it’s empathy. And I will fight for it, and if I come off as being aggressive, it’s because I care so much about doing the right thing.”

Last chance for impeachment: Next week Robert Mueller will shape history — but how?

Published

on

When Robert Mueller comes to Congress next week to field questions — "answer" is too optimistic — about what he learned in his investigation of Russia and Donald Trump, it’ll be his and our last chance to get it right; to inform the American people of the enormity of Trump’s offenses and our sacred duty to impeach him. If he doesn’t want to, or can’t be made to, we may all say, in unison with Mitch McConnell, “case closed” as all hope of impeachment will have died.

It seemed as if our chance had passed; that due to the misfeasance of Robert Mueller and some Democrats, impeachment was all but dead. Trump’s latest racist tantrum — his noxious series of tweets directed at four progressive Democratic congresswomen — revived it simply by reminding Congress that he is morally unfit to be president of the United States. He is the greatest proved liar in the history of American public life. He runs the most corrupt administration in the history of the American presidency. He helped rig one election and now invites the rigging of another. He not only admits to being a serial sexual predator, but brags about it. But all that we knew.

"The Democrat Congresswomen have been spewing some of the most vile, hateful, and disgusting things ever said by a politician in the House or Senate, & yet they get a free pass and a big embrace from the Democrat Party," Trump tweeted.
