Celebrity Chelsea Handler Had to Go to Therapy to Deal with Rage at Trump
Famous “comedian” Chelsea Handler revealed on “The View” that she had to go to therapy to deal with her anger at Donald Trump. She noted that it got so bad that she started shouting at Trump supporters in airports. After being asked about dealing with her anger at Donald Trump in therapy, Handler said,
Oh my God. Well, I would walk into the airports, I would go to the first class lounge, check in and then run over to the Fox News section and start assaulting people. Like, I would go in and be, like, you’re a racist and then I would run out and then I would run back in and go, do you want your daughter to have rights because she won’t, and then I would run out. Then I would run back into the Fox News section and I would go, are you still a racist? I mean, I was out of my tree, and my level of outrage was just not — I couldn’t handle it anymore. I was just — my veins were throbbing and I wanted to learn how to talk to Trump supporters or conservatives at this time in 2016. Now Trump supporters, I don’t have anything to say to them anymore at this juncture, but I wanted to be able to have the conversations that I was being prevented from having because of my anger. So that really was the way to get into therapy and then I realized my anger, yes, I hate Donald Trump. Yes, I find him to be a white supremacist and I find all of his policies to be abhorrent, but my real anger was something that happened to me as a child that I had never dealt with. When we don’t deal with our injuries, they creep up on us and tap us on the shoulder when we least expect it.
A number of conservative websites have focused on the “assaulting conservatives” part of this, but it doesn’t sound like “assault” so much as her acting like a loon. Imagine this happening to you,
Like, I would go in and be, like, you’re a racist and then I would run out and then I would run back in and go, do you want your daughter to have rights because she won’t, and then I would run out. Then I would run back into the Fox News section and I would go, are you still a racist?
Are you thinking, “I have just been assaulted” or are you texting your friend, “There is a crazy lady running in and out of the lounge yelling about racists. I think she is having some kind of mental episode. I will let you know if she comes back. LOL.”
This actually reminds a lot of a famous quote from Henry David Thoreau that seems to sum up so much of politics today.
You’re poor? Well, the rules have to be rewritten so you’re rich or at least so that other people aren’t richer than you. You’re a not very attractive woman? Then you need feminism to make it so that women aren’t valued for their looks. You’re a man who wants to be a woman? Well, then people have to be forced to pretend you’re a woman. Does it hurt your feelings when people say certain things? Well, all those things have to be declared “microaggressions” so no one can say them anymore. So much of politics today seems to revolve around everyone wanting to change the whole country to fix their personal problems.
Chelsea Handler sounds like she’s right out of that same mold. She has issues because of some childhood problem and she decided the fix for that was yelling at strangers instead of dealing with her issues. Good for her for being taught to deal with that through therapy. Now, if only someone could teach her to be funny.
