“I have a fantasy,” Handler explained. “I just want Melania to finally come out and divorce him. She would be an American hero. We would embrace her if she just said, ‘Listen, this guy’s disgusting, and I know all of his dirty secrets and I’m willing to tell everybody.'” (RELATED: Chelsea Handler Doesn’t Know When She’s Beaten, Or Pretty Much Anything Else)

Handler also reflected on Trump’s trip to the Middle East and said she hopes that they “keep him.”

“Well I’m hoping they keep him,” Handler responded. “It would be nice if they just took him and kept him. And treated him…like I don’t know… they treat the women over there.”

Later, co-host Joy Behar said Trump “seems more tired than anybody” and he looked “drowsy” in the shots from his trip.

“Well because he needs a nap,” Handler responded. “Because he’s a toddler. He can’t pay attention for that long.”

“He’s so miserable,” she added. “I mean it’s really funny. I mean I know it’s a very scary and dangerous time, but you just have to take as much enjoyment out of it as you possibly can. It is really entertaining and it’s like a great reality show every single day.”
