Chelsea Handler, who’s been a vocal supporter of Hillary Clinton, addresses the election results on her late night Netflix show Chelsea, during a segment called “The Day After.” Handler invited Senator Barbara Boxer on the show, to unpack their feelings about the election and the conversation quickly took an emotional turn.
“I know for a woman, as a woman, it feel so sexist,” Chelsea told Boxer as she fought back tears. “I guess the message that I want to like, spread out to other women is, exactly what you’re saying is, not to give up,” she continued overwhelmed with emotion. “Sorry, I hate fucking crying on camera, but it’s not give up because this is so important.”
“And it’s easy to say that we’re going to throw in the towel and that we’re going to leave or I’m going to move to Spain, because want to move to Spain, I really, really want to move to Spain right now,” she continued.”
Handler went on to say that her friends, family, and colleges urged her to stay and use her voice and platform to bring about change.
