Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) suggested on Wednesday that Chelsea Handler was jealous of his daughter, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, because she has a family instead of “two abortions.”
The hosts of Fox & Friends asked Huckabee to respond after Handler joked about Sanders’ hair and makeup.
“I mean, one day she has no makeup on at all. The next, she’s got six-foot-long eyelashes, cleavage and summer whore lipstick all over her face,” Handler reportedly said on a recent talk show. “Can you believe what they’re turned her into? A proper trollop.”
Huckabee said that he felt “sorry” for Handler.
“I’m surprised that there were not women on the left who at least had the decency to call her out for this,” Huckabee opined. “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.”
“I feel sad for Chelsea Handler,” he continued. “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 16. I think in many ways she’s jealous of my daughter.”
Huckabee added: “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.”
According to the former governor, “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.'”

Trump is enacting the presidency ‘George Wallace never had’: Conservative columnist
On Friday, writing for The Washington Post, conservative columnist Max Boot tore into President Donald Trump's legacy on race.
"We know how a normal president responds when a white police officer ignites furious protests by killing a black man. It is the way President Barack Obama responded in 2014 after a grand jury refused to indict a white police officer who had fatally shot Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and the National Guard had to be called in to deal with looting and fires," wrote Boot. "Obama expressed sympathy for the protesters — their anger, he noted, was 'rooted in realities that have existed in this country for a long time' — while making clear that he had no sympathy with violence: 'Burning buildings, torching cars, destroying property, putting people at risk — that’s destructive and there’s no excuse for it. Those are criminal acts. And people should be prosecuted if they engage in criminal acts.'"
