Chelsea Handler Appears to be Calling For a Military Coup Against Trump

TV personality Chelsea Handler called for a military coup against President Donald Trump today, and in Trump-ian fashion, did it via Twitter.

Yes, Handler wants to break the United States’ 228 year streak of not having to take military action against its president — telling the nation’s generals that their complacency will lead to them being viewed negatively in history.

The last known U.S. military coup plot to be discovered was in 1933 when retired Marine Corps Major General Smedley Butler claimed wealthy businessmen were planning to create a fascist veterans’ organization with him as its leader, and use it to overthrow President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

As usual when comedians/actors tweet political opinions, Twitter isn’t responding kindly.

Criticism has not stopped Handler from having her very public political opinions, though. Most recently she tweeted “Wouldn’t it be nice 2 have laws here for people who think racism is funny?” Other tweets include her saying we need someone in office who never speaks and predicting the U.S. is headed towards being a military state.
