Avowed liberal feminist and comedian Chelsea Handler has once again come under fire this weekend for attacking White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
What did she do now?
For the latest episode of Handler's show on Netflix, she had an actress impersonate Sanders for a nearly four-minute "makeup tutorial." In the video, the actress impersonating Sanders mocks the press secretary's appearance, weight, job, intelligence, politics, family — well, just about everything that makes Sanders who she is.

It wasn't the first time last week that Handler mocked Sanders' appearance. In fact, in the episode of Handler's show that aired before Friday's, Handler said of Sanders: "I mean, one day she has no makeup on at all, the next she has six foot long eyelashes, she’s got cleavage and summer whore lipstick all over her face. Can you believe what they turned her into? A proper trollop."
Sanders' father, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, didn't take to kindly to the comments and called Handler "a very angry and bitter person."
How did people react to this latest insult?
The top reply to Handler's video summed up how most people felt about the segment — that Handler is a hypocrite.
Glad to see how much of a strong feminist you are, by promoting positive body image of other females. @SarahHuckabee

Handler defended herself by calling Sanders "pure evil" and said the press secretary "deserves to be taken down."
This woman deserves to be taken down. She is pure evil.
