HANDLER UNHINGED: Chelsea Bizarrely CLAIMS MLK Day is for ‘White People’

Hyper-liberal comedian and devout Trump-hater Chelsea Handler continued her crusade against logic on Monday, strangely suggesting that Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is for “white people” to “think about what it must be like to not be white.”

The comic posted the bizarre rant on social media, where she strangely suggested that only “white people” could honor the Civil Rights hero who famously called for the day where no one is “judged by the color of their skin.”

“Happy Martin Luther King day to a true hero. This day means more today than it ever has. We all must honor the spirit of his fairness and equality and tireless search for justice. It is up to white people to honor Dr King, and to think about what it must be like to not be white,” she tweeted.

The backlash on social media was immediate, with users blasting Handler’s comments as racist, ignorant, and in out-right opposition to Dr. King’s message.

“A great, wise man. Remembering that he counseled protestors not to assume that all white people were for segregation, & to always be civil,” wrote one user.

“Could it just actually be ‘all people need to think about what it must be like to be decent human beings’? I believe that was his overall message….. be good people no matter what…..” wrote another.
