If it weren’t for bad luck, liberal comedian Chelsea Handler would have no luck at all.
First, her eponymous talk show on the Netflix pay cable television channel is being canceled at the end of the year, and now, her announcement that she’d moved out of her house because President Donald Trump is “literally and figuratively” “setting the world on fire” was met with anger and derision from her fellow Twitter posters.
Just evacuated my house. It’s like Donald Trump is setting the world on fire. Literally and figuratively.
Stay safe everyone. Dark times.
It didn’t take long for Twitter to unleash on Handler's lunacy. For example, @PattiAnn316 responded: “It's going to be much hotter where you're going. Might as well stay and get used to the heat.”
“Imagine for a moment that your home and all your possessions are about to be burned/flooded/whatever,” @Andersonista next posted. “Now imagine someone saying to you what you just said to her. Do unto others, my dear.”
That message provoked a fiery response from Handler: “I spend my life devoting my time and money to others. Don’t ever talk to me about compassion or charity. Talk to me when you spend your days helping stranger [sic] that you’ll never meet.”
Next, Dave on the Right responded to Handler by stating: “I helped 62,000,000 strangers I never met who appreciate it, 65,000,000 others who are too stupid to realize it, and 200,000,000 more who either didn’t or couldn’t help themselves. I voted for Trump.”
He later posted: “My wife said: "Democrats aren't what they used to be." I said: "Democrats aren't like anyone used to be."
Also responding was Roland Poland,, who noted: “I am curious if you ever wake up in the morning and look into the mirror and see no reflection? Evil people [are] good at accusing others of their own sins.”
Finally, Buford T. Justice -- an obvious fan of the Smokey and the Bandit movies -- posted: “The best part about the good ol’ days was not knowing the politics of entertainers. I wouldn’t have a clue whether [comedian Jackie] Gleason was a Democrat, Whig, alt-right or anarchist. Why make it public and alienate half of your possible fans?”
As NewsBusters previously reported, this isn’t the first time the liberal “psychic” has said something intended to put down conservative Republicans in general and Trump in particular.
Back on August 14, Handler called for “a military coup” to remove the Republican president from the White House.
While the rest of the media melted down over the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville on August 11, Handler wrote: “To all the generals surrounding our idiot-in-chief … the longer U wait to remove him, the longer UR name will appear negatively in history.”
As expected, the scapegoats were Republicans and the gun lobby, specifically the National Rifle Association.
Handler began a segment by stating that members of the GOP are “really complicit in the murder that happened in Vegas, in the everyday gun violence we see in this country.”
She added that “we have to act in a way to make sure we have fewer guns in America” before slamming Scalise for remarking “the congressman that was shot, still says it enforced his belief in guns even more. It’s like: 'F**k you, a**hole.'”
However, Handler’s worst day came on October 18, when Netflix announced it was canceling her program at the end of 2017 -- even though she claimed the move was being made so she could devote her full attention to being a radical leftist advocating for pro-abortion women.
As usual, she blamed Trump but maintained that she’ll stay with Netflix for a future documentary on discussions with people she disagrees with.
She began a letter discussing the cancellation by stating that the 2016 election and life under the Trump administration “have galvanized me” and “[f]rom the national level down to the grassroots, it’s clear our decisions at the ballot box next year will mark a defining moment for our nation.”
If how Handler hosted her Netflix show is any indication, her efforts to elect Democrats in next year’s election will be laden with profanity and replete with liberal talking points, which might make her regret losing her weekly program after all.
