“Comedian” Chelsea Handler spoke with Buzzfeed News. She defended Democrat Al Franken who had been accused of groping over 8 women. However, Handler said that despite the #MeToo movement, she “would love for Al Franken to run again.”
“I don’t want to diminish anyone’s legitimate claim of feeling like they’ve been assaulted, because that’s your feeling, but I think there is a very big difference of a man putting his arm around you – he’s a comedian,” said Handler. Being a comedian gives you permission to grope people? Chelsea Handler apparently thinks so. Which is what she went on to argue.
“I’ve touched people’s breasts and genitals, I can’t imagine how many times, in photos. That doesn’t excuse it, but it’s something, that’s not a rape. That’s not sexual assault. And it’s not repeated behavior over and over again,” she said. But it was repeated behavior over and over again.
“It is a far different beast than having somebody – I mean, for a person who’s been sexually assaulted, to compare that story to someone putting their arm around you and being silly in a picture,” said Handler.
“I think he can probably run again, I mean, look who is running the country… I think Al Franken will redeem himself. I do hope he runs again,” she said.
