When comedian/TV talk show host Chelsea Handler isn’t going on unhinged Twitter rants against President Donald Trump and other elected Republicans, she’s opining on members of his administration. Nothing wrong with that in and of itself, except that in doing the latter she sometimes defeats the purpose of her feminist message (and it’s not the first time).
