Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Donald Trump’s presidency is being contested by many icons from Hollywood and one of the most vocal people against the president-elect is Chelsea Handler.

Handler said in her latest interview with Variety, which was published on Tuesday, the people who told her that she was their only outlet and mouthpiece inspired her to use her platform to criticize Trump during the campaign period. She then started to have political guests on her Netflix show such as Senator Barbara Boxer, Jake Tapper, and Van Jones.

She then talked about the media also playing a role in the victory of Trump. Handler shared, “Stop covering [Trump] so much. They were treating him as an entertainer first. It was a reality show. We’ve turned into a reality show.” She then went on to say that she personally blames the Kardashians being the root of Trump’s victory. Handler said, “The way these people have blown up and don’t go away — it’s surreal. Everyone is for sale.”

Handler said that it is important now to monitor Trump and his actions as he will be taking over the presidential post this Friday. She also praised outgoing president Barack Obama noting that he was so responsible and was a leader.

The comedienne went on to target Ivanka Trump. She shared, “The idea that Ivanka is going to help women, or do anything for women, is absurd, because she’s a puppet. They’re all his puppets. They’re scared s—less of him, and the fact that they’re still around him means they have never stood up to him.”

As for Trump being on Handler’s show, she said that she never wants to see the president-elect or interact with him.
