Happy Valentine’s Day, Donald Trump; you just got trolled by Chelsea Handler.
Former talk-show host Handler took some time out Wednesday to razz the president, a frequent target of her social-media barbs.
In her tweet, Handler made reference to reports that Trump had an affair with Stormy Daniels, which have gained traction in the past two days.
“Happy Valentine’s Day to @realDonaldTrump and @StormyDaniels!” Handler wrote.
“And to @MikePenceVP and Mother!” the comedian added, a reference to the vice president and his reported pet name for his wife.
Handler’s tweet drew mixed reactions. Along with responses showing support for the former “Chelsea Handler” star, there were a number of responses of the “b-b-but Clinton!” variety.
There were also a number of responders who were more than happy to trot out reports that Chelsea Handler seemingly allowed “American Pie” star Jason Biggs to urinate in her face once.
Daniels made headlines earlier this year with multiple reports, including a 2011 interview she did with In Touch where she said she had an affair with Donald Trump in 2006. A statement attributed to her in late January read in part, “I am not denying this affair because I was paid ‘hush money’ as has been reported in overseas owned tabloids. I am denying this affair because it never happened.”
However, hours after the denial was made public, following Trump’s State of the Union address, Daniels appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and coyly suggested that the denial might not be authentic.
On Tuesday, the topic resurfaced after Trump attorney Michael Cohen told the New York Times that he had paid Daniels $130,000 just before Election Day. Following Cohen’s disclosure, Daniels’ manager Gina Rodriguez told the Associated Press was prepared to offer her version of events.
“Everything is off now, and Stormy is going to tell her story,” Rodriguez said.
