People sometimes joke that the 2016 election broke a lot of liberals, especially in Hollywood, but it’s actually true. Chelsea Handler recently described to Bill Maher that she basically had a breakdown after Trump won.
Watch: Chelsea Handler Admits Trump’s Election Drove Her to Seek Psychiatric Help and Drugs
Far-left comedienne Chelsea Handler admitted that the election of President Donald Trump forced her to seek psychiatric help and smoking cannabis for anxiety relief.
Appearing on Real Time With Bill Maher, Maher quizzed the failed Netflix talk show host about her new book Life Will Be The Death of Me, where she tells the story of how Trump’s election victory over Hillary Clinton sent her spiraling toward a “mid-life identity crisis.”
“You know I’m reading your new book and I’m feeling like a bad friend, because I didn’t realize you were suffering so much.,” Maher began. “Everyone took the 2016 election hard, but I didn’t know it really knocked you down like that. And you came back stronger, that’s what the book is about.”
“Yeah I had a midlife identity crisis once Trump won, because I had never had my world feel so unhinged I think,” Chelsea Handler explained. “And I had to pay a psychiatrist to listen to me bitch about Donald Trump for about the first three weeks.”
“For me it was a huge emotional trigger of everything being destabilized and privileged I’d been all my life to be this upset every day… and the outrage and the anger, I just wanted to fucking fight people,” she continued.

It should surprise no one that Handler also came to Joe Biden’s defense.

Chelsea Handler comes to Joe Biden’s defense during Real Time appearance with Bill Maher
Comedian Chelsey Handler defended former Vice President Joe Biden on Friday, during an appearance on HBO’s “Real Time” with Bill Maher.
“I have to know what you think of Joe Biden and that whole thing,” Maher said.
“I think Joe Biden is just a grandfather, you know what I mean? And he’s old,” Handler replied.
“I don’t like comparing — I don’t like these stories of these women coming out and talking about a man smelling their hair or kissing the back of their head,” she continued.
“I think it diminishes people who have actually experienced bullsh*t,” Hander said.
Of course Biden gets a pass. He’s a Democrat.
