Comedian Chelsea Handler came completely unhinged Wednesday in her hatred of President Donald Trump when she posted a vulgar, homophobic tweet attacking Sen. Lindsay Graham.
Handler’s panties were in a wad over the South Carolina Republican’s participation in the president’s televised meeting with a bipartisan group of lawmakers to address the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
According to the comedian, the senator’s inclusion could only be because Graham is secretly gay and Trump is blackmailing him with a compromising sex video.
“Holy, f*ck f*ck. I just the video of trumps bipartisan “meeting” yesterday. Hey, @LindseyGrahamSC what kind of d*ck sucking video do they have on you for you 2 be acting like this? Wouldn’t coming out be more honorable?” she tweeted.
Holy, fuck fuck. I just the video of trumps bipartisan “meeting” yesterday. Hey, @LindseyGrahamSC what kind of dick sucking video do they have on you for you 2 be acting like this? Wouldn’t coming out be more honorable?

The profane rant coming from someone who champions herself an advocate for LGBT rights.
Graham was one of Trump’s fiercest critics during the 2016 election, but he has slowly come around on a number of policy issues since.
The change of heart has prompted criticism from the Trump Derangement Syndrome crowd, to include renewed claims that Graham is gay. A lifelong bachelor who has no offspring, Graham has denied the rumor in the past.
The reaction on social media was brutal, from remarks on what “a disgusting human being” Handler is, to ire, for Twitter for allowing her “homophobic” tweet to stand.
Here’s a sampling of the responses from Twitter:
You're a disgusting human being, Chelsea. https://t.co/V4sbSsihZN

Just reported this explicitly anti-gay tweet. Odds on twitter doing something? Less than zero. If a conservative said this they would be suspended immediately. https://t.co/DqBodymPV8
