Do You Still Support Trump? If So, You're Russian Now, According to Comedian Chelsea Handler

Chelsea Handler claims that any person in America who still supports President Donald Trump is now Russian. She's charging all Trump supporters with treason for taking orders from a foreign government. She posted the declaration to Twitter, so it's official.

Yesterday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was fired in a surprise move by President Trump. The move came as a surprise to almost everyone, including Tillerson, when Trump tweeted the announcement.

"Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State. He will do a fantastic job! Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service! Gina Haspel will become the new Director of the CIA, and the first woman so chosen. Congratulations to all!" said President Trump.

According to the President in a press conference on Tuesday morning, he and Tillerson disagreed on a number of issues.

“We were not really thinking the same,” he said. “Really, it was a different mind-set, a different thinking.”

Trump and Tillerson were constantly clashing on foreign policy issues. With a major summit between President Trump and North Korean dictator, Kim Jong Un, coming up soon, the president needs a secretary of state on his side to properly prepare him for the meetings.

For some, the timing of the termination was too convenient. It comes on the heels of Tillerson admitting he thinks Russia was responsible for the poisoning of a former spy.

Many are accusing the president of firing Tillerson for his pointing a finger at Russia, who they still believe is in control of the Trump administration.

"So, Rex Tillerson acknowledges Russia isn’t our friend and poisoned the latest father/daughter in Russia, and then he’s replaced. I wonder why? Wake up, Americans who still support Trump. You are Russian now. Taking orders from a foreign enemy is treason," tweeted Handler.

Handler overlooks the fact that just a day earlier, the House Intelligence Committee announced they found no evidence of collusion between Russians and Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.

Of course, not many Democrats have been convinced by the findings of the GOP-led committee. Some believe it’s all part of the conspiracy.

"Republican House Intell Comm shut down Russia probe before doing a complete job This is a coverup and a lasting stain on the reputation of what used to be a bipartisan Committee when it was run by Republican Rogers and Democrat Ruppersberger. Politics beat a desire for the truth," tweeted former Attorney General Eric Holder.

Some people on Twitter explained to Handler that, in addition to clashing with the POTUS over policy, Tillerson wasn't doing a very good job. With the president in year two of his term, eight of ten top jobs at the State Department are still vacant.

"Where I come from, when you don't please the boss, you get canned. That's how life works Chelsea," one Twitter user responded to her.

Some also pointed out that Pompeo has always taken an anti-Russian stance himself. They question how this would benefit Russia if indeed Trump was attempting to protect the Kremlin.

"It was Putin's master plan to have Trump replace an anti-Putin sec of state with another anti-Putin sec of state. Evil genius!" said one sarcastic commenter to Handler.
