Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee responded to comedian Chelsea Handler’s comments, calling his daughter a “whore.”
Rather than punch back at Handler, Huckabee asserted that people should pray for her, and she is clearly missing happiness in her life and is “jealous” of White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.
On Handler’s show Friday, the comedian called Sanders a “harlot” and criticized her “summer whore” lipstick saying:
“I mean, one day she has no makeup on at all, the next she’s got 6’ long eyelashes, cleavage, and summer whore lipstick all over her face.”
Huckabee told Fox & Friends he wasn’t angry when he heard what Handler said. Rather, he felt sorry for her saying:
“I feel sad for Chelsea Handler. She seems like a very angry and bitter person… she seems to just be in a rage. The sad thing about it, she boasts about the two abortions she had at 16, I think in many ways she’s jealous of my daughter.”
Huckabee went on to talk about his daughter’s accomplishments and why she clearly wasn’t rattled by Handler’s comments saying:
“My daughter has a husband who loves her and is wonderful to her, my daughter has three delightful children, she’s a happy, balanced person. I truly feel sorry for [Handler] and I feel that she’s lashing out at a life that she’s never been able to understand. Pray for her that she finds some peace because it’s pretty evident she doesn’t have it right now.”
