“I had a mid-life identity crisis once Trump won the election,” comedian Chelsea Handler conceded on Bill Maher’s April 5 HBO show, so “I had to pay a psychiatrist to listen to me bitch about Donald Trump.” She recalled how “my brother died when I was 9 years old” and, like with Trump, “it was a huge emotional trigger of everything being destabilized.” Trump spurred “outrage and the anger” in her so “I just wanted to fucking fight people.”
