Chelsea Handler appeared on HBO’s Real Time With Bill Mahr. She explained that she was so upset by Trump that she had to start smoking pot.
“I had to pay a psychiatrist to listen to me bitch about Donald Trump for about the first three weeks and then once when we got past that and we got to the real stuff, I realized the parallel there was my world becoming unhinged. When I was a little girl, my brother died when I was nine years old.
I had never related the two, but for me, as I can imagine it must have been for so many people, it was a huge emotional trigger of everything being destabilized and I realized just how spoiled and privileged I had been all my life to realize, to be this upset and this on-a-ten every day and the outrage and the anger, I just wanted to fucking fight people, you know? And I was like, ‘I gotta to go see a psychiatrist.”
Mahr picked up on how she had a lot of white guilt and asked her what good is it to hate yourself?
I think self-flagellation is good with regard to this,” she said. “I think we’ve misbehaved for so long that we need to get our shit together.”
Mahr then redirected her over to her new habit of smoking weed.
“I pivoted [from alcohol] toward weed and cannabis and for me as an active and high strung person, the cannabis was a gateway drug to meditation,” Handler said.

They then moved on to the Biden controversy where they agreed that these women are diminishing actual assault by making such a big deal about hugs.
Biden clearly needs a lesson on boundaries in this metoo era.
It appears pot has saved us all the hassle of hearing Handler’s non-stop Trump hate. Maybe we can slip Maxine Waters and her impeach Trump crew some. As they are just as bad with their hate.
