On Friday, alleged comedian and "feminist" Chelsea Handler — clearly still suffering from election PTSD — ranted about White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on her now-cancelled Netflix show.
Handler called Sanders a "harlot" and viciously mocked her appearance. "That harlot that they’re dressing up and trolloping out every day?" she said. "I mean, one day she has no makeup on at all, the next she got, like, six-foot-long eyelashes, and she’s got cleavage and summer whore lipstick all over her face. Can you believe what they turned her into? A proper trollop."
Papa Huckabee was not having it.
Appearing on Fox News on Wednesday morning, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee went off on "bitter" and "lonely" Handler for being "jealous" of his daughter, and therefore lashing out.
"The things that Chelsea Handler said were vile and vulgar," said Huckabee. "I'm surprised that there were not women on the left who at least had the decency to call her out for this."
"I feel sad for Chelsea Handler," he continued. "She seems like a very angry and bitter person."
"She seems to be just in a rage," he said. "And the sad thing about it, she boasts about the two abortions she had at 16, I think in many ways she’s jealous of my daughter. My daughter has a husband who loves her and is wonderful to her, my daughter has three delightful children, she’s a happy, balanced person, she enjoys life."
Huckabee added that he is "not angry" with Handler, but feels "sorry" for the comedian.
"I'm not angry at her, I feel for her," the former governor said. "I truly feel sorry for her and I feel that she's lashing out at a life that she just doesn’t understand and has never been able to embrace and that’s sad. So, no reason to be angry at Chelsea. Pray for her that she’ll find some peace because she doesn’t have it right now. It's pretty evident by the tone of voice that she’s an angry, bitter, and frankly, lonely person."
