Mike Huckabee: Chelsea Handler's 'Vicious Attacks' Are Beginning to Backfire
Comedian Chelsea Handler sparked outrage by tweeting a video that mocks White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders' physical appearance.
The video, which is promo for Handler's Netflix show, features comedy writer Fortune Feimster impersonating Sanders and giving a makeup tutorial.
In the 4-minute clip, Feimster compares Sanders' face to "a big, fat biscuit," insinuates that she resembles a man and takes digs at the Trump administration.

On "Fox & Friends Weekend" this morning, Sanders' father, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R), joined many Twitter users in criticizing Handler.
Huckabee said that his daughter has lived in the political arena her whole life, so while she might not enjoy these type of attacks, they don't bother her like Handler might wish.
"My daughter's a very balanced person. She wakes up every morning to a loving husband, to three adorable children whose arms circle her neck. And it's something that gives her a balance," Huckabee said. "I feel sorry for Chelsea Handler. It's not something she understands."
He said that Handler's "vicious attacks" are beginning to backfire, and people are no longer taking her seriously.
"She's called a 'late night host.' I think it's so late now that she's not on anymore," Huckabee quipped.
