As a comedian, Chelsea Handler has a great following. But, if fans are waiting for her to make some momentous statement about her feelings about Trump and his administration, they’ll have to wait a bit longer.
Recently, reports rang out that Trump’s son, Eric Trump, is expecting his first child with wife, Lara. Being the liberal she is, Chelsea Handler decided to take to Twitter to mock the First Family in response to the family’s news.
Some say Handler was probably high when she penned her tweet. Many people complain online about the use, and misuse, of such homophones as “there, their and they’re,” “to, too and two,” and “your and you’re.” But, Chelsea took us to a new level with a homophone mix-up rarely committed:
E!’s former late night talk show host tweeted:
“Just what we need. Another person with those jeans. Let’s hope for a girl.”
So, what’s the problem? Well, unless the comedian has transitioned into the celebrity styling industry, she most definitely didn’t mean a “pair of blue jeans.” It’s safe to say she actually meant “genes.”
Of course, the Trump family was not going to let that slide. Donald Trump, Jr. clapped back with a tweet of his own.
Quick to seize on the monumental blunder was none other than Donald Trump Jr., who came to his brother’s defense: “Jeans??? I guess I’m not at all surprised… but really?!?!”
Taking his defense beyond the 140 character limit of Twitter, Trump Jr. would also comment on Facebook on Handler’s failed attempt at being a good liberal.
“The liberal elite’s real hatred is hopefully starting to be apparent to mainstream America,” he wrote, before dismissing as “nonsense” the notion that Democrats are the party of tolerance.
“Attacking the announcement of someone’s first pregnancy would seem below the belt to most, but sadly that’s no longer the case,” Trump Jr. continued.
He then gave the “comedian” a bit of a science lesson.
“As to the ‘hoping it’s a girl’ comment, I wonder if she knows that said ‘jeans’ (aka genes) are passed from the same people whether it’s a girl or a boy???”
“Based on what I’ve seen… probably not. So much for the party of science.”
All of which prompted Handler to apologize for her spelling error, but not her hatred.
She offered the excuse that she was “a little stoned,” because being in an altered state of mind is a respectable position on the left.
