Chelsea Handler has said publicly she wants to succeed Trevor Noah as host of The Daily Show.
For now she’s just guest hosting but if her first go is any indication of what she’d do every night, I hope she gets the job.
On her first episode she kicked things off by saying how she jazzed she was to
spend a week talking shit about all the wackjobs and hot messes out there.”
Yep, soon (after some Chinese spy ballon stuff) she was talking about one of them: Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Over the weekend a video apparently went viral of “Capitol Storming Barbie“ bitching about her job because it takes up too much time and doesn’t pay as much as she’d like.
First of all, you’re NOT a regular person, you moron!
You’re a congressperson, because you campaigned and somehow won, which requires you to work year-round.
I also don’t want to work year-round, and that’s why I don’t...
The point is if you don’t like being in Congress, then go work at Foot Locker, bitch.
But that’s not even the worst part of what she said…
This woman thought 9/11 was a hoax, that the Clintons killed JFK Jr. and that Jews are in charge of space lasers.
But please, don’t come at her with some crazy ideas –she might believe them!”
But Handler moved on,
Luckily we can’t spend the entire show talking about MTG because she has a co-worker that’s even more unstable.
I’m talking about the broke millionaire, half Black, gay, Jewish, volleyball star, drag queen, George Santos...”
And she’s off!
Meanwhile, if your platform is Twitter, not TV, like satirist/ writer Paul Rudnick, you just combine stories…
