Comedienne Chelsea Handler is defending Al Franken against sexual allegations by saying, “Me too.” On Sunday, Profile by BuzzFeed News published an interview between host Audie Cornish and Handler.

What’s the best way to look like a raging hypocrite? Well there are plenty of options. A good one might be to openly applaud vandalism against a celebrity’s Walk of Fame star, and then turn around and preach the lefty gospel of peace, love, tolerance. Several big celebrity names took to Twitter to express their glee over the fact that Donald Trump’s Hollywood star had been destroyed by some vengeful lefty freedom fighter.
Best way to celebrate Independence Day in the #resistance, is to apologize to the world for this awful thing called the Trump administration. Comedian turned activist Chelsea Handler did that on Twitter on the 4th of July, addressing every other country. The unhinged entertainer tweeted, “To every country on the 4th of July. We’re sorry about our president. 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. #novemberiscoming #alsosorryabouthotdogs.”
Celebrities have spent the past 16 months tarring President Donald Trump with every imaginable crime. Two female comics took their Trump hate to a new level this week.

Should a major network give voice to one of the most vitriolic, hateful personalities in Hollywood under the guise of a Christmas special?
Former Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) was a guest on the December 8 episode of Netflix’s Chelsea titled “We All Have to Fight and Be Loud.” During the interview, Boxer relayed some opinions of psychiatrists who believe that President Trump has brainwashed Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and turned her into someone “who is kind of cult-like.”
Wowzer! Taking the low road against conservatives and the Trump administration is nothing new for Chelsea Handler to do on her weekly Netflix show. But, on the December 1 episode titled “Dinner Party: Scandalous,” the Chelsea host may have sunk to a new personal low. She went after White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in a crudely personal way.
CNN is still proudly touting the media’s “resistance” against President Trump, despite it being over a year since he was elected into office.
