If Chelsea Handler didn’t need a calming vodka and lavender tub soak after last week, she’s going to this week. If you watch Chelsea’s Netflix show, you know that she has a major political boner for Hillary Clinton. In order to be a little less biased, Chelsea booked Donald Trump supporter Ann Coulter to talk about her latest waste of paper and ink, In Trump We Trust. Well, Ann called in “sick” and you can guess how happy Chelsea was about that.
Ann was scheduled to appear on Wednesday’s taping, but right before the show, Chelsea received an email saying she was too sick to appear. Maybe she caught the sniffles from Donald Trump? Chelsea responded by setting Ann’s book on fire.
Chelsea still had a show to tape, so she put comedian Fortune Feimster in a dry blond wig to play Ann. Fortune Feimster is about as evil as a Care Bear signing an organ donation card, so her take on Ann was lacking that certain je ne sais satan that the real Ann has. Still, Chelsea went through with the interview and asked fake “Ann” all the questions she was planning to ask real Ann.
Chelsea told The Daily Beast after the taping that she really did read Ann Coulter’s book and she really was really pissed that Ann bailed on the show. Chelsea added that it was better to have Fortune because it made the show “much more fun.” So far, Ann hasn’t said anything about this mess with Chelsea. Wait, Ann hasn’t hissed back? Maybe she really is sick.
I’m sure we all wanted to see one loud big-mouthed blonde get into a slap fight with another loud big-mouthed blonde, but it’s probably for the best that Ann skipped the show. Chelsea is always joined on Chelsea by her dog Chunk and sometimes by her other dog Tammy. I have a feeling they both would have lost their snausages when they saw Ann walk on stage. I mean, you can’t wave a 6-foot tall rawhide stick in front of two dogs and expect to come out alive.
