Chelsea Handler recently revealed that she fantasizes about Donald and Melania Trump. However, she has no interest in what goes on in the couple’s bedroom. If the talk show host had her way, the first lady and the POTUS wouldn’t have a love life at all.
On Monday, Chelsea Handler appeared on The View to promote her Netflix show. It’s no secret that Handler has strong opinions about Donald Trump, so the ladies of The View asked her to share her thoughts on a viral video showing Donald Trump trying and failing to grab Melania’s hand. The Chelsea star could hardly contain her glee after witnessing the president getting publicly rejected by his wife on a tarmac in Israel, and the footage of Melania swatting his hand away prompted Chelsea to share her deep desire that the first lady would dump Donald Trump.
“I have a fantasy. I just want Melania to finally come out and divorce him. She would be an American hero,” Handler said, as reported by the Huffington Post.
According to some, there are signs that Handler may eventually get her wish. Earlier this month, Vanity Fair suggested that Melania Trump may soon reach her “breaking point.” The magazine observed that “Melania’s unhappiness and the couple’s apparent lack of closeness are becoming more noticeable,” and Melania’s recent hand swat isn’t the first time the couple’s supposed marital discord has been betrayed by their extremities. As MSN reported, it was Donald Trump who seemed reluctant to hold his wife’s hand when Melania made her first public appearance after his inauguration.
If Melania Trump ever does divorce her husband, thus putting an end to the fascination with what goes on between their fingers, Chelsea Handler would be more than happy to have her on her show. She’d love for Melania to air all of the president’s dirty laundry, and she’s convinced that the former fashion model knows some potentially damaging inside information about the billionaire businessman.
“We would embrace her if she just said, ‘Listen, this guy’s disgusting, and I know all of his dirty secrets and I’m willing to tell everybody.’”

Unfortunately for Handler, Chelsea probably wouldn’t be the talk show that Melania would choose for her first post-divorce sitdown, if she were ever to do such an interview. As Time reported, the comedian has been criticized for making derogatory comments about the first lady. When Variety asked her if she would ever ask Mrs. Trump to appear on her show, Chelsea mocked her thick Slovenian accent and suggested that she has no interest in hearing what Melania has to say about anything.
“To talk about what? She can barely speak English,” Chelsea said.
Chelsea Handler has also had some harsh words for Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka. She’s called Ivanka a “puppet,” and she recently revealed that she insulted the president’s adviser to her face. According to the Hill, Handler was not a happy camper last October when someone tried to introduce Ivanka Trump to her at Fortune Magazine’s Most Powerful Women Summit. She revealed that she couldn’t bring herself to make small talk with the first daughter.
“I can’t even with you,” she recalled saying to a flustered Ivanka.
However, as Forward reported, the outspoken Donald Trump critic believes that the first daughter can also redeem herself and become an “American Hero” by ditching her dad.
“If she were to come forward now, after everything her father has said and done about women that’s been recorded, that’s been proven time and time again, which she consistently denies. If she were to do that, she would be an American hero. People would go ‘holy s**t, thank you,” Chelsea Handler said during an appearance on Bill Maher’s HBO show.
