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.'”

The US has a history of testing biological weapons on the public – were infected ticks used too?
The House of Representatives has instructed the Pentagon to disclose whether it used ticks to infect the American public with Lyme disease between 1950 and 1975. The allegation comes from Chris Smith, the Republican representative for New Jersey. A long-standing campaigner on Lyme disease, Smith says the claims are from a new book about the illness and the man who discovered it – a bioweapons scientist called Willy Burgdofer.
What drove the New Yorker’s Jane Mayer into Al Franken denialism?
The defenders of Sen. Al Franken are perhaps the single most embarrassing group of allegedly progressive people in the Democratic coalition. Franken, who resigned from the Senate in January 2018, was accused by eight different women of sexual impropriety. Most of these accusations were both serious and credible, in that the women making them were mostly liberals who had no apparent reason to lie about Franken's behavior toward them. Despite this, Franken's defenders are married to the delusional belief that it's all just a frame-up and that if he'd had "due process" in the form of a Senate ethics investigation (run by Republicans, who control that chamber) he would have somehow managed to prove this.
Rush Limbaugh argues Kamala Harris and Barack Obama can’t be considered African-American
In a clip captured by Media Matters for America, Limbaugh can be heard using a mocking tone to describe Harris and Obama — as well as Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. — as people who want to be "victims" so they depict Trump as "this big man bully."
"And by the way, can somebody explain to me how Kamala Harris is an African-American?" Limbaugh asks. "Her father is Jamaican and her mother is Indian. How does that equal African-American? Same thing with Barack Obama. Obama's not African-American, he doesn't have any history here [inaudible] any of that stuff. And Rashida Tlaib is Palestinian, for crying out -- that'd be like calling a Jewish person a person of color. How is Rashida Tlaib a person of color? She's not! This is all about making them victims. It's all about making them appear to be 'Just little people trying to save themselves and save their country and this big man bully, this guy Trump comes along and squashes on them and steps on them and it's all because he doesn't like...' It's absurd!"
