Mike Huckabee appeared on Fox and Friends Thursday morning. During his appearance, he was asked about Chelsea Handler making fun of the way his daughter, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, dressed and wore makeup. Mike Huckabee tried to talk a good game and tried to come off sounding pious and apologetic, but tone only gets you so far. His words said it all.
He answered by passive aggressively attacking Chelsea Handler. He told the Fox hosts,
I feel sad for Chelsea HandlerShe seems like a very angry and bitter person. Look, she’s almost as old as me. So this is a point in her life, she needs to start mellowing out. And she seems to be just in a rage. The sad thing about it, she boasts about the two abortions she had at 16. I think in many ways she’s jealous of my daughter. My daughter has a husband who loves her and is wonderful to her. My daughter has three delightful children. She’s a happy balanced person. My daughter has enjoyed life. She’s a pretty straight-laced person. She goes to church and lives a life Chelsea Handler has never known
The hosts praised his words, commenting that it amazing he didn’t seem particularly “bitter” about people attacking his daughter. What they failed to grasp is that he attacked Handler, he just did it on the down low. He called her old and then went on to chastise her, in the nicest way possible, about her abortions. What Mike fails to understand is that not every woman is empty inside without a family. Chelsea Handler has focused on her career instead of making babies – something many men do with without comment regularly. Your reality is not everyone’s.
