Was Chelsea Handler’s tweet about Lindsey Graham homophobic or on point?

Comedian Chelsea Handler has come under fire for a tweet she sent yesterday mocking Republican Senator Lindsey Graham for praising Trump after a White House meeting about immigration.

The meeting has since devolved into another racist embarrassment for the administration as reports that Trump called countries like Haiti “shitholes” and asked why we couldn’t encourage more Norwegians to immigrate to the United States. (Maybe it’s because Norway has universal health care and free college education?)

“Hey, @LindseyGrahamSC what kind of dick sucking video do they have on you for you 2 be acting like this? Wouldn’t coming out be more honorable?” Handler tweeted.

Graham, who has never married, denies that he is gay but his sexuality is an open secret in Washington.

Republicans were quick to clutch their pearls at the joke with one of the queer community’s most purposefully offensive Republican cheerleaders, Chris Barron, leading the charge. Barron was a co-founder of the now-defunct far right organization GOProud.

In the end, Barron summed up the tempest in a teapot best all on his own.
