Tag: Ann Coulter

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America start the week off with three crazy martinis, beginning with the Secret Service disputing a Trump lawyer’s claim that it vetted the people who met with Donald Trump Jr. in June 2016. They also scold both Jane Sanders and Kellyanne Conway for asserting – in separate situations –  that harsh criticism of them is a result of their gender. And they sigh as Ann Coulter unloads on Delta Airlines in a Twitter rant after having her seat assignment changed.

I’m heading to the grocery store to buy a couple cases of popcorn, and something alcoholic, for my Thursday. It’s going to get crazy; I’m questioning if Ann is just tired of it all, and wants to commit Suicide By Berkeley… UC-Berkeley Readies Police As Ann Coulter Plans To Speak In Public Plaza On Campus […]

Bonfire of the Sophisticates (Part 2)

 

(Note: This is the second of a two-part essay, the first part centered on the proposition that the Republican party, through its own self-destructive tendencies, has reduced conservatism itself to little more than an academic exercise.)

The second proposition is as follows:

Donald Trump is less an instrument of political vandalism than of utter and complete exasperation.

Trump Softens on Immigration, Coulter Follows Suit

 
Coulter Trump Book Sm

My slight edit of Coulter’s book cover.

Talk about bad timing. Wednesday night at the Breitbart Embassy in DC, Ann Coulter held a book signing for In God We Trus… oops, I mean In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome. Earlier that day, Donald Trump told Sean Hannity that he was “softening” his position on immigration, the main issue that made Coulter and a plurality of primary voters select him as the GOP nominee. Oh, to be a fly on the wall at that confab.

Ann Coulter Visits the Harvard Lunch Club

 

CoulterThis week my partner Todd Feinburg and I welcome the inimitable Ann Coulter to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for the, what else, Ann Coulter Is Here edition. Ann talks – teasingly – about her new book (to be released Aug. 23) In Trump We Trust, E Pluribus Awesome, about stifling cries of joy over Brexit while landing at LAX in first-class, about the end of the world if Hillary is elected President, and about New Year’s Eve with Matt Drudge (and what they came up with together)!

Here are a few excerpts:

I’m not really sure what to make of Ann Coulter.  On the one hand she rubs me the wrong way – seems belligerent, condescending, shrill.  On the other hand,  just because I don’t like her persona doesn’t mean she doesn’t have good ideas.   Dennis Prager and the Ricochet guys seem to like her, PJ […]

[Coulter]’s from Connecticut, & she’s very upset about immigrants. I’m willing to lend a sympathetic ear to people from Connecticut when it comes to immigrants — if they happen to own a tribal casino! My feeling is, unless you’re Native American, you should just shut up about this. ‘Cause you ain’t from here. That’s the […]

On the latest l’affaire […]

Here’s NR’s Mr. Geraghty writing about how Mr. Trump learned his shtick from the goddess herself. He is very vague about the connections, because there is no reporting to be done here of facts, it’s just talking about moods & attitudes, aided by the terrible fall of the goddess, who now supports Mr. Trump. That […]

Anchor Babies Showdown: Yoo v. Coulter

 

Last week, Ricochet conanchor_babytributor and podcast host John Yoo posted Trump No Conservative in Opposing Birthright Citizenship, making the case that Trump’s proposal to end birthright citizenship is unconstitutional. The post generated hundreds of comments, both on and off the site, including this one from our old friend and avid Trump supporter Ann Coulter:

So this week my Casper mattress that I purchased at the behest of all of the podcasts I listen to advertising for them arrived today (yes, I did use the coupon code) via UPS. This is the second mattress purchase I’ve made since moving out of my mother’s house in 2008 after graduating college. You […]

Three C-SPAN Videos Relevant to 2016

 

cspanvidlib

The C-SPAN Video Library includes a unique archive of conversation about politics and policy. Here are three author interviews with particular relevance to the 2016 campaign, each in a different way.

Ann Coulter’s interview summarizes her new book, Adios America, which has already impacted the race, and not just by influencing Donald Trump’s campaign. Coulter delves into the sensitive subject of exactly who the “undocumented” are, and whence they came. Her claim is that while past generations arrived legally with ambition and a taste for freedom, we are now being deluged with less productive peasants with an appetite for government benefits.

Here’s Mr. Gavin McInnes talking to the goddess of war. This is not the polite center right of Messers. Robinson & Long, so consider yourself triggered–unless you think that that means that you’re under the trigger, in which case… It’s racist, to begin with–Mr. McInnes in a very racist way insists that people pronounce his […]

I found a longer video, but the quality is lacking–the man doing the interview is neither able to ask the series of questions he has prepared nor to react to the answers he is getting. I find it remarkable that the man protests, repeatedly, he read her book, but he is asking her whether she […]

Did you read this? Of course not, you’re sensible men & women! But I did. Great credit to the race I am, I know. A very silly woman very indecently was staring at a guy’s Twitter–there were days when a young woman would not be staring at a man’s Twitter, I know, but those halcyon days are […]
