Chelsea Handler Trump

Chelsea Handler is a frequent opposer of President Donald Trump and his administration’s policies. She targeted his son Donald Trump Jr. on the social media platform (Twitter) to suggest it’d be intriguing to see Trump’s son turn on him.

“I can’t wait for Donald Trump junior to flip on his father,” Handler, tweeted. “That’s going to be awesome.”

Trump Jr. has been a loyal supporter of his father and wasn’t amused by Handler’s remark. In response to Handler’s comment, Trump’s eldest son took to Twitter to criticize her.

“I’d say stick to comedy but you weren’t funny enough to avoid cancellation of your Netflix show,” Trump Jr. tweeted. “Stay away from politics—no reason to suck at two things.”

Trump Jr. dug further by suggesting Handler stand by her previous desire to exit the U.S. following his father being elected to office, tweeting: “Hey Chelsea, now that your show is canceled it’s not too late to make good on your promise. Really no excuse for you to stay anymore.”

Previously, on July 4 2018, Handler apologized to the world for President Donald Trump on social media during Independence Day celebrations.

She twittered to offer her deepest regrets to all the other countries on the planet for Trump. “To every country on the 4th of July. We’re sorry about our president,” she wrote. “He doesn’t reflect all of our views—and we hope you know that the majority of us are ashamed. We will rally each other and come back to the world one step at a time.”

At the end of her tweet, Handler added the hashtags #novemberiscoming and #sorryabouthotdogs.

Chelsea Handler Abortion

Chelsea Handler reveals she had two abortions as a teen. In a 2011 interview with The New York Times, Handler revealed that she had an abortion when she was 16 years old, saying she had the procedure “because that’s what I should have done. Otherwise I would now have a 20-year-old kid. Anyway, those are things that people shouldn’t be dishonest about.”

In a 2016 interview with Playboy magazine, she revealed that she had a second abortion when she was still 16 in addition to the one she talked about with The New York Times.

Chelsea Handler Tape

In 2010, after Handler broke up with Ted Harbert, a leaked sex tape of her was being offered for sale. After news of the tape became public, Handler said on ‘Chelsea Lately’ the tape “was made as a joke” more than 10 years earlier, adding, “I put it on an audition tape for a comedy club, because I’m a comedienne, and I’ve been showing it at birthday parties for fucking years.

Chelsea Handler Alcoholic

Back in 2016, Handler admitted that she needs alcohol to be happy. She told The Sunday Times Magazine; “If I don’t drink for more than three nights you can tell it in my personality.” “I just need alcohol in my system. I love alcohol. It makes me happy.”

Chelsea Handler Quotes

  1. You just be honest about who you are, and if you don’t end up with any friends, then good for you.
  2. You should always speak your mind and be bold and obnoxious and do whatever you want and don’t let anybody tell you to stop it.
  3. I don’t like the word ‘alcoholic’. I like to think of myself as an advanced drinker.
  4. The love that comes from friendship is the underlying facet of a happy life.
  5. Everything isn’t permanent, so don’t pretend that it is. Everything’s supposed to move and shift.

Chelsea Handler says cannabis has changed her life

The state of U.S. politics didn’t drive Chelsea Handler to drink, but it did encourage her to consume cannabis.

“I was re-introduced to cannabis once Trump was elected because alcohol was a little bit too on the nose for me and I already abuse it. So I started to use cannabis again because it was becoming legal in the state of California,” said Handler recently over the phone from London where she was helping to pitch a TV series.

“It changed my life and made things a little more tolerable and a little bit easier. Now with the way they are able to distribute the cannabis and to micro-dose it’s so helpful to so many people. It has opened my eyes to how it can really change lives.”

“I have introduced it to so many people in my life. I just think it is the way forward,” said Handler, who has just begun working on documentary about white privilege for Netflix. “It is a healthy alternative to alcohol especially for a woman over 40. You don’t get the hangovers. You can have a clean living ethos. It has just changed my world so I just wanted to do everything I can to get behind the movement.

“Marijuana can be an additive to your life. It doesn’t have to ruin your life. You don’t have to be blottoed, but it can be a substitute for so many bad things (opioids) that are out there that I just wanted to get involved,” added Handler.

Chelsea Handler News


Chelsea Handler tweeted that Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham’s response to Christine Blasey Ford’s Senate testimony proves he is “being blackmailed by Russia.”

“.@LindseyGrahamSC is so obviously being blackmailed by Russia. Accusations are different then testimony under oath. From a credible woman. 35 years time is not argument against an assault of a 15-year-old girl. @JeffFlake @SenatorCollins @lisamurkowski,”

Graham said that Blasey Ford’s testimony did nothing to change his mind on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court.

“She took a polygraph and they didn’t tell us until Sept. 26,” Graham said. “All I can deal with is what’s in front of me. I’ve got a guy who adamantly denies this. Anyone who knows him in a real way say this is not the guy I know. I’ve got Dr. Ford, who can’t tell me the time and the place, and we’ll see what happens.”

“To my Republican colleagues,” he added, “if you can ignore everything in this record, looking at allegation that’s 35 years old, that’s uncertain for time, place, date and no corroboration, if that’s enough for you, God help us as Republicans. Because this happens to us, it never happens to them.”

Graham continued, “I don’t know any more than I knew before. I know that the people who’ve claimed to have been at the party say nothing happened. I don’t know how she got home or how she got there.”

“I think something happened to Dr. Ford. I’m gonna listen to Brett Kavanaugh,” he added. “They [Democrats] knew about this in July. We offered to go out there [California].”
