Outraged to hear from Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards that President Trump’s administration “has been a total zero on women and women’s health,” Sarah Silverman and Chelsea Handler called Trump a f—ing asshole and challenged his daughter Ivanka to support Planned Parenthood. Both women have been very vocal about their own abortions and often try to desensitize their audience to the act.
Vising Handler’s Netflix show, Richards appeared as a guest to talk about her organization, which she claimed does much more than provide abortions, “such as offering breast and cervical cancer screenings, but that there are some politicians who just focus on the abortion services, which don’t get federal funding.”
Richards said she has met with Ivanka Trump and explained to her in detail what the organization does. “So far, the White House has been a total zero on women and women’s health,” said Richards. “I think Ivanka’s job now is that she’s in charge of all women’s issues. This would be time to kind of step up.”
Handler then turned to Silverman, asking if she thought Ivanka could help, but in a dejected tone of voice, Silverman said, “I’m so dead inside when it comes to all of this.” She then noted that she saw Ivanka was following her on Twitter, so she direct-messaged her. “I was like, ‘This is your chance. You are writing your life story here.'”
Noting that her own father is “an asshole” too, Handler compared him to President Trump, but noted that he’s not successful, “so he’s just our family’s problem, not everyone’s problem.” Handler said that she’s spent her entire life calling her dad out, so it’s hard for her to understand why Ivanka isn’t doing the same thing.
“I know all women feel this way toward Ivanka right now, but I’m like, ‘You need to tell that f—ing asshole this is an unacceptable way to treat women. We’re moving backward,'” said Handler.
