Chelsea Handler tweeted on Friday that U.S. generals should carry out a military coup to replace President Trump, who she called “our idiot-in-chief.”
“To all the generals surrounding our idiot-in-chief…the longer U wait to remove him, the longer UR name will appear negatively in history,” the TV personality wrote on Twitter.

Handler’s comments come as the Trump administration, including the Defense Department, are on heightened alert over a rhetorical battle between President Trump and North Korea.
Handler, a Hillary Clinton supporter who cried when the Democrat lost in November, frequently makes controversial statements about Trump.
Earlier on Friday she posted a picture of herself at an airport with “Sorry about our president,” written on it in English and 14 other languages.

Handler took a swipe at Melania Trump last month by suggesting that the first lady, born in Slovenia, pretends not to speak English in order to avoid talking to her husband.
