On Real Time Friday, comedian Chelsea Handler talked about how she had a "mid-life identity crisis once Trump won" and mentioned that she "had to pay a psychiatrist" to listen to her "bitch about Donald Trump for about the first three weeks." She then compared the election of President Trump to the death of her brother when she was nine years old; mentioning that she felt a "huge emotional trigger of everything being destabilized" in both cases. She closed her anti-Trump rant by talking about how she "just wanted to f***ing fight people" in the wake of his election and reiterated her need to see a psychiatrist because of her Trump Derangement Syndrome.
