The radical liberal comedian Chelsea Handler admitted in her new comedy special that she is so obsessed with New York’s Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo that she has developed “deep sexual feelings” for him.
“The thing is, I like older men, which brings me to the strong and deep sexual feelings that I have developed for Andrew Cuomo,” Handler said in a trailer for her upcoming special. “I want him to flatten my curve, then I want to flatten his curve. And then I want us to apex together.”
This special marks Handler’s first return to standup comedy in six years. Filmed in her home state of New Jersey over the summer, the special features Handler talking about her friends, family and first experience going to therapy.
Objective reporting for the educated American.
This isn’t the first time that Handler has let her disturbing obsession with Cuomo be known. Back in March, she penned a love letter to him in Vogue Magazine called, “Dear Andrew Cuomo, I Want to Be Your First Lady.”
“Out of the darkness, you, Andrew Cuomo, walk into my life, looking remarkably like the Incredible Hulk,” the former late night host wrote. “Your daily briefings have come at a time when I was beginning to wonder where the good men were and to feel despair that this was just the way the world was now.”
“Thank you, Andrew Cuomo. Thank you for reminding us that there are men who can lead and be clear and tell the truth — even when the news is bad,” Handler added. “I love you, Andrew Cuomo. Your daughters are lucky to have a dad like you. Thank you for showing us the heart of a New Yorker. But, most of all, thank you for your competence.”
Like many liberals, Handler is ignoring the fact that Cuomo handled the coronavirus pandemic arguably worse than any other governor in the country. His initial plan to put COVID-19 patients in nursing homes directly led to countless new infections and deaths among the elderly.
But he’s a Democrat, so none of that matters to Handler.
