Mike Huckabee blasted Chelsea Handler as a “bitter,” “lonely” person after the comedian called his daughter, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, a “proper trollop” and a “harlot” during her Netflix talk show.
“The things that Chelsea Handler said were vile and vulgar,” Mr. Huckabee said on Fox News Wednesday morning. “I’m surprised that there were not women on the left who at least had the decency to call her out for this.”
On Ms. Handler’s recently canceled show that streamed Friday, the comedian called Mrs. Sanders a “harlot” while interviewing Lanny Davis, a lawyer and former special counsel to President Bill Clinton.
“That harlot that they’re dressing up and trolloping out every day?” Ms. Handler 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.”
Mr. Huckabee attacked Ms. Handler as an “angry” person who is lashing out because she’s jealous of Mrs. Sanders’ life.
“I feel sad for Chelsea Handler. She seems like a very angry and bitter person,” the former Arkansas governor said. “She seems to be just in a rage. 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.
“I’m not angry at her, I feel for her,” he said of Ms. Handler. “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.”
