Comedienne Chelsea Handler is coming under fire for tweeting a vulgar video that mocks White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ weight, and physical appearance.

The video is a promotion for the Handler Netflix series – is a fake-step-by-step make-up tutorial, with comedy writer Fortune Feimster Sanders.

Every step of the fake tutorial is accompanied by the crude jokes that ridiculed, among other things, Sanders’ face, the Trump and the Republicans.

“Now my skin is dry, just like Puerto Rico just for that one rainy day they had,” she says before applying a moisturizing cream on her face.

“My face is a big, fat cookie!” she says as she makes use of the lotion.

Feimster compares its makeup foundation, the foundation of America: “It is Republican, it is strong, and it is white.”

Feimster also mocked Sanders’ physical appearance by insinuating that she looks like a man.

“I don’t know what the foundation was, but our great president was kind enough to take me to a Sephora and he said to the employee, ‘Hey, do you see that man here? Make him a woman,” she says.

Not everyone was amused with the video. Many took to Twitter to criticize Handler attack from Sanders.

A Twitter user wrote: “Keep it up and everyone will despise. You are obviously a very unhappy person. Maybe as a modern feminist you have to act like a lady for a change.”

Another wrote: “it’s nice to see how much of a strong feminist you are, by promoting positive self-image of other women.”

Despite the opposition, the Handler, was unfazed by the criticism, replying, “This woman deserves to be demolished. She is pure evil.”
