Chelsea Handler slams white female Trump voters in essay

Fox411: Handler says women should support each other but slams white women who voted for Donald Trump

 

Chelsea Handler is facing heat for an essay she penned this week calling for women to come together and support each other.

However, in the same essay published by Thrive Global, Handler singles out white female voters who supported Donald Trump -- a move that many are calling hypocritical.

Handler said there is a problem with "women supporting women" in the United States.

"One of the saddest things about November 8," she added, "were the women of America who somehow managed to vote for Donald Trump, specifically the 53 percent of all white female voters who chose Mr. Trump."

Handler noted that America "is a free country, and we are free to differ on public policy" but "what kind of a woman votes for a white, entitled rich guy who has spent his entire life working the system for excess personal profit while insatiably groping strange women for personal pleasure.

She said it was especially frustrating because Hillary Clinton is "arguably the mostly qualified Presidential candidate in modern American history " and would have "lift[ed] America up out of its 240-year ‘winning streak’ of male dominance and patriarchy."

She also said that "94 percent of black women voted for Hillary Clinton, because unlike white women, black women don’t take their rights, liberties, or justice for granted."

Many took to Twitter to criticize the Netflix host.
