MGH just got another patient for the burn ward. Chelsea Handler hopped on the Roy Moore killshot train with the following tweet:
Imagine being molested by an older man. Then that man denies ever doing it and then goes on and gets elected to United States senate. What kind of message does that send to young girls everywhere? And men to all the men who abuse women?— Chelsea Handler (@chelseahandler) November 12, 2017
Well, someone who didn't have to imagine it clapped back. HARD:
Yeah, @chelseahandler I can imagine. I was raped by the Arkansas AG who then becomes Governor & President and NBC held my interview explaining the rape until after his impeachment hearing. But I'm sure you don't want to go there. https://t.co/s9W8NZsaZ3— Juanita Broaddrick (@atensnut) November 13, 2017
To Handler's credit, she did pull a -kind of- mea culpa:
I’m sorry I’m just seeing this, @atensnut. You are right and I apologize to you for not knowing your story. Democrats along with Republicans and the rest of the worlds’s political parties all need to do better and respect the firsthand accounts of victims. I believe you. https://t.co/VDIFmCvg7g— Chelsea Handler (@chelseahandler) November 16, 2017
Still, though... Ouch. THIS is what social media is for... this made my night.
