Liberal TV host, comedian, and pyschic Chelsea Handler wants you to know that she is “in Paris to make sure they don’t f*ck up their election like we did ours.” She shared this information via Twitter yesterday, and I must admit I’m impressed. Who knew Handler had the power to drop in on a foreign nation and make a difference in the outcome of an election?

But it was another tweet she posted that has generated minor buzz. Here it is:


Three hours after posting the tweet, she was back on Twitter to inform everyone who ridiculed her that she knows the correct spelling of genes.

There is still the unresolved matter of Handler’s tenuous grasp on genetics, which is evident in the last sentence of her tweet: “Let’s hope for a girl.” But except in the case of genetic abnormalities, every child, regardless of sex, receives the same number of chromosomes from each parent.

Maybe Handler would benefit from being a lot stoned. Or from not sharing her political insights in the first place.

Here is the message tweeted out by Donald Trump, Jr.:
