Chelsea Handler Calls This Movement a ‘Referendum on Trump’

Comedian-turned political activist Chelsea Handler admits that the #MeToo anti-sexual harassment movement represents a “complete referendum” on the election of Donald Trump.

In an interview with The New York Times at Syracuse University, Handler argued that the movement which has seen hundreds of public figures accused of sexual misconduct was “a complete referendum on Donald Trump being elected to the presidency.”

“Seventeen million women across the world have been sexually assaulted,” Handler said. “It’s all over the place. So to ignore it is to live in a lane and be delusional about your own experience.”

Handler, 43, was previously a leader of the Women’s March at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, which coincided with dozens of other anti-Trump rallies across the country.
