Chelsea Handler closed out the latest episode of her Netflix talk show with some unabashed thoughts about president Donald Trump’s recent decision to end the DACA program.
The 42-year-old comedian posted the clip to her YouTube page in which she issued a public apology to the 800,000 Dreamers at risk of being deported.
“We’re sorry for making it clear that white supremacists and Nazis are welcome in this country while young, hardworking immigrants brought here as children are not,” she said. “The average dreamer got here at the age of 6, was raised in the US and knows no other country than this one. Dreamers are our coworkers, our neighbors and our friends.”
Handler went on to personally attack the president over his decision pointing out that 99 percent of the people affected by his decision have no criminal record.
“That means they’ve never obstructed justice, colluded with Russia, defrauded people through a fake university, funnelled millions of taxpayer dollars into their businesses, falsely accused people of wiretapping them, carelessly talked to a Korean dictator with nuclear weapons, bragged about sexual assault or pardoned a racist maniac.”
She closes the clip by saying, “It doesn’t matter what a president who has had everything handed to him on a piss-gold platter thinks about them because we’re going to stand up and defend their right to be here.”
As The Daily Beast notes, Handler’s show and social media presence has become increasingly political. Last month, many thought she went too far by basically inciting a military coup by suggesting that the generals of the U.S. military should remove Trump from office so as not to be associated with him in history.
The latest episode of her Netflix show is slated to premiere Friday.
