Chelsea Handler is not shy about her political leanings. She hates Donald Trump, she supported Hillary Clinton, and now for some reason she’s registering as an independent. She has also tweeted quite a bit about the first lady, Melania Trump. Recently she posted, “Blink if you need help @MELANIATRUMP,” in reference to the rumors that Melania is embroiled in some sort of hellish captivity with Donald. I don’t think that’s true, but it’s easy to believe because it’s a feeling many people are having.
Fox News, of course, has a problem with anyone taking hits at their new queen. They rounded up a bunch of Handler’s tweets from last fall, in which she makes fun of Melania’s accent, claiming not to understand her. She writes, “Trump said Melania will give two or three more speeches… Hopefully an interpreter will be present,” and “Tim Kaine delivered a speech entirely in Spanish. Still easier to understand than Melania.” And more:
Hmm, maybe she was calling for help, and Chelsea Handler just couldn’t understand her?
It’s true that Melania does speak multiple languages, including English, and it’s pretty rude to mock someone’s accent. Let’s mock the horrible words she's saying, not how she’s saying them. Unless she’s stealing words from Michelle Obama, then let’s mock her for that. See? Lots of material in this family. No need to knock an accent.
