Feminism: You're doing it wrong.

Chelsea Handler retweet of Sarah Sanders parody sparks outrage


Comedian Chelsea Handler is coming under fire for tweeting a vulgar video that mocks White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders‘ weight and physical appearance.

The video – a promotion for Handler’s Netflix series – is a fake step-by-step makeup tutorial, featuring comedy writer Fortune Feimster as Sanders.

Each step of the fake tutorial is accompanied by crude jokes that ridicule – among other things – Sanders’ face, Trump and Republicans.

“Right now my skin is dry, just like Puerto Rico right before that one rainy day they had,” she says before applying moisturizer to her face.

“My face is a big, fat biscuit!” she says as she uses the lotion.



Feimster compares her makeup foundation to the foundation of America: “It’s Republican, it’s strong, and it’s white.”

Feimster also mocks Sanders’ physical appearance by insinuating that she resembles a man.

“I used to not know what foundation was, but our great president was kind enough to take me to a Sephora and he said to the employee, ‘Hey, you see that fellow over here? Make him a woman,” she says.

Not everyone was amused with the video. Many took to Twitter to criticize Handler’s attack of Sanders.

One Twitter user wrote: “Keep it up and everyone will despise you. You are obviously a very unhappy person. Maybe as a modern feminist you should act like a lady for a change.”

Another wrote: “Glad to see how much of a strong feminist you are, by promoting positive body image of other females.”

Despite the backlash, Handler was unfazed by the criticism, replying, “This woman deserves to be taken down. She is pure evil.”

Feminism is the struggle for female equality with males.

It has nothing to do with being a "nice" person to other women.

Ms. Handler (who I adore) was not making fun of the looks of a single mother who couldn't get a job above minimum wage to support her kids. She was making fun of a woman who is the voice and visible support of one of the worst misogynists ever in office. Fuck Sarah Sanders, and rock on, Chelsea.

And, right wing wackjob people, stop trying to make feminism into something it's not - like you do with liberals.

I absolutely disagree. But you seem about as angry and insecure as Chelsea so I'll just leave it at that.

I'm not angry. I'm hardly insecure. Most of the right wing wackjobs here call me arrogant. Being insecure is a nice change of pace insult.

Disagree and leaving it at that is the smart thing to do when you can't dispute anything in the post to which you replied! Thumbs up!

You are new here aren't you. Tristanrobin isn't angry, and his response was on mark.

Your post however is one of just another angry Trumpanzee.

You'll have to get in line with the rest of them.

I have issues with Chelsea Handler. I don't care for her crude brand of comedy. I didn't think the video was funny--AT ALL.
Having said that, the minute Sarah Huckabee Sanders accepted her position as WH Press Secretary--a public figure--a spokesman for the sitting president, SHE HAD TO KNOW she would be the butt of jokes and a topic for late night comedy. I have absolutely no respect for her BECAUSE she parrots the president and LIES---LIES--LIES--every single time she stands at the podium. Granted, that's her job. That's what press secretaries do, but I don't have to like it.
Thanks from catus felis and Athena

He seems angry. His responses are peppered with personal attacks which I find unnecessary in debate. Same with you. /shrugs

I don't even know who she is. But if she is a comic she is entitled to whatever her brand is. Sanders isn't entitled to anything. Being the water carrying liar that she is, she is fair game to anyone, with any brand.

Tristan IS angry, he gets up that way every day and goes to sleep that way every night. He hates anything he perceives as "rightwing". Chelsea Handler is nothing more than an entitled millennial.
