Chelsea Handler Breaks Down In Tears While Discussing Hillary Clinton’s Loss
Chelsea Handler wants to move to Spain now that Donald Trump is president.
The comedian broke down in tears while discussing Hillary Clinton’s loss to the Republican nominee during an interview with Senator Barbara Boxer for her Netflix series.
“Obviously the result is not what I was hoping for,” Handler said. “Like a lot of people in this country I’m sad, I’m disappointed and I’m confused, but if Hillary can make it through a concession speech then I can make it through a stupid television show.” (RELATED: Chelsea Handler Mocks Melania Trump After She Threatens To Sue News Outlets)
“As a woman, it feels so sexist,” Handler said as she began crying. “I guess the message that I want to spread out to other women is exactly what you’re saying, is not to give up. Sorry, I hate fucking crying on camera.”
“It’s so easy to say throw in the towel and that we’re going to leave or I’m going to move to Spain, because I want to move to Spain,” she said.
“I really, really want to move to Spain right now. Everyone in my office is like ‘You have a responsibility, you have a voice and you need to use it, and you have to be here.'”
“When you say, ‘I want to leave, I want to go,’ of course — it’s the flight syndrome,” Boxer then told Handler. (RELATED: Chelsea Handler Was Asked About Angelina Jolie’s Divorce — She Didn’t Hold Back)
“That’s just what the people who gave this hateful message want us to do and we’re not going to do it.”
In May, Handler said she wasn’t one of those people who would threaten to leave and then not follow through.
“I did buy a house in another country just in case, so all of these people that threaten to leave the country and then don’t, I will leave the country,” Handler said during an interview with “Michael and Kelly.” (RELATED: Celebrities Who Threatened To Leave The Country If Trump Won — And Now Changed Their Minds)
