Comedian Chelsea Handler closed the latest episode of her Netflix talk show by apologizing to the estimated 800,000 illegal immigrants affected by President Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) amnesty program.
“We’re sorry for making it clear that white supremacists and Nazis are welcome in this country while young, hardworking immigrants brought here as children are not,” she said. “The average dreamer got here at the age of 6, was raised in the US and knows no other country than this one. Dreamers are our coworkers, our neighbors and our friends.”
Handler made the point that 99 percent of Dreamers have “no criminal record,” then proceeded to recite a litany of Trump-related scandals.
“That means they have never obstructed justice, colluded with Russia, defrauded people through a fake university, funneled millions of taxpayer dollars into their businesses, falsely accused people of wiretapping them, carelessly talked to a Korean dictator with nuclear weapons, bragged about sexual assault or pardoned a racist maniac,” the comedian said.
