Chelsea Handler just did the most predictable thing a Hollywood star can do today: She went after the GOP.
In an op ed for Newsweek, the comedian railed against the GOP’s “white Christian male spite” in preparation for the midterms.
“America has come a long way from the days of our founding father George Washington, a well-to-do white guy who was born into a slaveholding family who eventually freed his own slaves only upon his death via his legal will. But we haven’t come far enough,” Handler wrote, together with her brother, Glen.
The Handlers then attempted to give a history lesson that set up Republicans as the big bad guys who have constantly tried to derail civil rights — a leftist narrative anybody with a library card can disprove.
They then claimed the Republican Party has hijacked the Supreme Court and flushed democracy right down a “right-wing toilet.”
“Our nation is a republic, supposedly democratic in nature, but the 2018 reality resembles a wholly undemocratic farce, replete with our Professional-Wrestler-In-Chief, his crooked Russian-Republican Duma, his rigged Republican Frat Boy Supreme Court, and a nationwide network of vote suppressors and vote riggers and oligarchic donors and bribers doing their seditious best to once again subvert democracy in the name of right-wing tyranny,” the piece said.
The rambling leftist screed continues, “Through the Machiavellian joys of gerrymandering, voter suppression tactics and laws, voter file purges, red state Senate obstructionism, Supreme Court hijackings, automated black box vote counting, and Electoral College tyranny-of-the-minority rule, Republicans have utterly abandoned the will of the American people and flushed democracy down a right-wing toilet, fueled by white Christian male spite and daily repainting of the toenails of the rich in the finest gold.”
The Handlers later claimed Republicans do not like big voter turnout and “can’t stand democracy.”
For those wondering what Handler’s qualifications are in politics, she’s the former Netflix talk-show host who blamed California wildfires on President Donald Trump and called the Republican Party the “white male party.”
She has also appealed to Twitter in the past to suspend the president’s account.
“Can @Twitter just remove Trump’s account, already? No leader of any country should be tweeting threats to people and other countries. That would actually force him to talk more and explain policies and answer questions on tape, and we all know how that goes,” she wrote over the summer.
