Chelsea Handler is in the middle of a political awakening and this week it’s not going very well.
With her Netflix talk show Chelsea, now in its second season, the comedian has made a conscious choice to pivot away from the vapid, celebrity gossip that dominated her long-running Chelsea Lately show and towards the type of specifically anti-Trump "political humor" that complements other late-night hosts like Stephen Colbert.
But while she may be finding success with bad jokes about President Trump on Netflix, she has veered into some seriously questionable territory on Twitter. In one such tweet, Chelsea called for a military coup against the President of the United States.
She has received a lot of attention for her Twitter craziness resulting in a daily stream of the most outrageous tweets. You know how these "famous people" need attention -- and she's getting it.
I'll be posting some of Chelsea's ravings in Disqus, below.
