"Donald Trump scares the shit out of me," Handler said, according to CNN. "He's a big bully, he treats people terribly, he's disloyal … he lies constantly. It's recorded lies … He's also unstable."


Handler has been a vocal critic of Trump, calling him a “sociopath” and a “toddler.” In January, she led one of the many women's marches across the country at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.

"I've become a better person, and I'm more informed. I'm learning," she told Tapper. "I have the Trump family to thank for that."

She also said that because of Trump's administration, she can't avoid getting into politics.

"I thought that after the election I wouldn't do politics … but that didn't happen, so I had to adjust."

Her Netflix talk show, “Chelsea,” which is now in its second year, often includes politics as a topic. The comedian often tweets about Trump as well.
