Television host Chelsea Handler is talking about Melania Trump again, but this time it’s not to mock her accent. Instead, Handler divulged her hope that one day Melania dumps Trump and becomes a national hero.
During her appearance on The View Monday, Handler was flanked by only three co-hosts and the most liberal ones to boot — Whoopi Goldberg, Joey Behar, and Sunny Hostin. They all felt quite at home at the desk which has turned into quite the little anti-Trump utopia.
“You have been part of la résistance along with us,” Behar said, before lobbing the first question: “What do you think about [Trump’s] trip to the Middle East?”
Instead of a well-thought-out political response, Handler, of course, joked, “I’m hoping they keep him.”
“It’d be nice if they just took him, kept him, and treated him like they treat the women over there,” she added.
As for the first lady, Handler believes she’s noticed Melania pulling away from Trump and accused the pair of not sleeping together on Air Force One. She said she hopes it’s all leading up to a nasty divorce so the United States can finally embrace Melania as an “American hero:”
“I have a fantasy. I just want Melania to finally come out and divorce him. She would be an American hero. We would embrace her if she just said, ‘Listen, this guy’s disgusting, and I know all of his dirty secrets and I’m willing to tell everybody.’”
After several minutes more of Trump bashing, Handler was asked about her dating life, to which she admitted to using Tinder for one-night stands. Just the kind of lady that should be giving advice to married couples.
