Oh well, I guess shattering the glass ceiling can wait while we sort through our grave national crisis of shattered Hollywood lefties. Really, folks, you’ve got to get a grip. Granted, our sides are aching from laughter and we’ve overdosed on schadenfreude, but this is just embarrassing.
Chelsea Handler hosted an emotional postelection episode of her Netflix show on Wednesday.
“Obviously the result is not what I was hoping for,” said Handler. “Like a lot of people in this country, I’m sad, I’m disappointed and I’m confused. But if Hillary [Clinton] can make it through a concession speech, then I can make it through a stupid television show.”
Handler interviewed Sen. Barbara Boxer, who got choked up when talking about how she hasn’t spoken to Clinton yet about her loss. Handler got emotional in response, saying, “I know for a woman, as a woman it feels so sexist.”
She started crying and said, “I guess the message that I want to spread out to other women is exactly what you’re saying, is not to give up. Sorry, I hate f—ing crying on camera.”
Handler continued, “It’s so easy to say throw in the towel and that we’re going to leave or I’m going to move to Spain, because I want to move to Spain. I really, really want to move to Spain right now.”
Just. Fucking. Leave.
The next insipid Hollywood twit that actually leaves the country will really be the first. Speaking of which, these two intellectual titans are joining forces in an effort to have the electoral college hand over the White House to Mrs. Clinton. Just a hunch this won’t work, but have at it, girls:
