Chelsea Handler vowed to leave the U.S. if Trump was elected. Unfortunately, she broke her promise and is still here. The worst part is that the things she says keep getting dumber. She recently called Dr. Ben Carson a ‘black white supremacist’ whatever that is.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Chelsea Handler calls Ben Carson a ‘black white supremacist,’ misleads viewers with claim about Trump’s father and the KKK
In a preview clip from Friday’s edition of her Netflix show, comedian Chelsea Handler strung together three minutes worth of jokes about the Trump administration being racist that included some strange claims.
Handler’s show, which can actually be entertaining, often blends news and comedy in a fashion not dissimilar to what’s done on “The Daily Show” or “Saturday Night Live’s” Weekend Update segment. In fact, the clip released ahead of Friday’s episode follows those formats pretty closely…
“Fun fact,” Handler added moments later, “Donald Trump’s dad was arrested after a Klan rally in 1927, which means Donald Trump has racism in his genes …”
Here, Handler explicitly presents as “fact” something that’s both misleading and not factual at all. The Washington Examiner’s Eddie Scarry set the record straight on this unsubstantiated rumor just last month. ..
Handler later transitioned into explaining that “black white supremacists” are “black people who think white people are better than them.”
Among the people the comedian believes qualify as “black white supremacists?” Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, a celebrated neurosurgeon and philanthropist with his own children’s charities.
So her comments were not true, not funny, and incredibly obnoxious. How does this woman have a career?
