US COMEDIAN Chelsea Handler took a vicious swipe at the new First Lady Melania Trump, saying she “can barely even speak English”.
In a drunken rant the chat show host also said she would tell President Donald Trump to “f*** off” if she saw him.
Handler, 41, was asked in a filmed interview if she would have Mrs Trump on her Netflix show Chelsea.
“Melania? What’s to talk about what, she can barely even speak English”, she replied.

Her comments come despite the fact Melania Trump can speak five languages fluently — English, French, Italian, German and Slovene, Page Six reports.
During the Presidential campaign, Handler was slammed for her perceived foreigner-bashing attacks on Melania, who was born in Solvenia.
On 28 October, after then-candidate Donald Trump said his wife would give more speeches in support of him, Handler tweeted: “Hopefully an interpreter will be present”.
Days later in another tweet posted at 1:12am, she spouted: “Tim Kaine delivered a speech entirely in Spanish. Still easier to understand than Melania.”
Later in the drunken Variety interview, Handler switched to talking about the need to avoid “divisiveness”.
“Divisiveness is not the answer,” Handler explained.
“And I think to get that message, we have to reach across party lines, forget your party. I’m registering as an Independent.
“I’m not gonna be a Democrat anymore because it’s too divisive. This isn’t working, this two-party system.”
Fox News requested a comment from a representative for Handler, but they did not respond.
