LA Times Writer Fat Shames ‘Chunky Soccer Mom’ Sarah Sanders, And It Gets Worse

The left claims to be so tolerant and caring for others, but time and time again their words tend to be louder than their actions. In this case… their cruel words are being passed through a megaphone.

A Los Angeles Times piece written by David Horsey was critical of the Press Secretary. Which in this day are not uncommon, but Horsey took it a step too far calling Sanders a, “Chunky Soccer Mom”.

David Horsey Wrote;

Much like Roger Ailes when he was stocking the Fox News lineup with blond Barbie dolls in short, tight skirts, the president has generally exhibited a preference for sleek beauties with long legs and stiletto heels to represent his interests and act as his arm candy.

And then he moved onto Sanders…

“Trump’s daughter Ivanka and wife Melania are the apotheosis of this type. By comparison, Sanders looks more like a slightly chunky soccer mom who organizes snacks for the kids’ games.“

Some other reporters decided to fight back and support Sanders.

“Sanders looks like a chunky soccer mom.” What editor published this shockingly sexist piece from @davidhorsey at the @latimes? — Brianna Wu (@Spacekatgal) November 3, 2017

An editor read the line "looks more like a slightly chunky soccer mom" & thought sure, good, yes, lets publish this — Tom Gara (@tomgara) November 3, 2017

He later removed the offensive text and replaced it with an apology.

“I want to apologize to Times readers — and to Sarah Huckabee Sanders — for a description that was insensitive and failed to meet the standards of our newspaper. It also failed to meet the expectations I have for myself. It surely won’t be my last mistake, but this particular error will be scrupulously avoided in my future commentaries. I’ve removed the offending description.”

Too little too late. Shame on you David Horsey.
