Thank goodness Chelsea Handler has left behind her Netflix series to focus full-time on being a political activist. It seems she’s stumbled upon a plot by the Russians to interfere with Virginia’s gubernatorial election — the one where Latino Victory Fund envisioned Ed Gillespie supporters driving pickup trucks with Confederate flags and trying to run down minority children.

So, seriously … we’re still going with this Russian bots thing? This is going to go on forever, isn’t it? “You may be wondering why I’m not 50 points ahead. Well … RUSSIAN BOTS.”

Suppose Ralph Northam were ahead 50 points right now; does anyone really think Handler would be tweeting about Russian bots right now?


That’s what the press release said. And Netflix was going to film it all for a documentary. So far, though, just partisan tweets and the standard Trump digs.
