Ann Coulter Calls Obama A “Retard”
Last night Ann Coulter dropped a bomb that’s managed to anger even her fellow conservatives. After live-tweeting the debate, Coulter posted, “I highly approve of Romney’s decision to be kind and gentle to the retard.”
Really, that’s what she tweeted.
Journalist Michelle Malkin tweeted back: “What a stupid, shallow thing to say, Ann.” Malkin’s Twitter site, Twitchy, rounded up some of the negative backlash and noted, “She sure doesn’t speak for us.”
- Comedian Patton Oswalt: “Ann Coulter died of prostate cancer in 2002. Her Twitter account’s a sentient emu skeleton with a swatch of eyelid skin stretched over it.” He later added, “If Ann Coulter’s calling the President a ‘retard’ it means he won/is going to win. She’s our un-pettable Punxsutawney Phil.”
- Model Chrissy Teigen: “not ever shocked by @anncoulter. my bar for her is set so low that it is, ironically, in the depths of hell.”
- Modern Family exec producer Danny Zuker: “Local news is reporting on a fatal ballooning accident and tragically neither victim was Ann Coulter.”
- Actress Marlee Matlin: “Despite our differences, it’s NOT ok to use ‘R’ word. Consider millions of developmentally challenged Americans. It’s just UNBELIEVABLE.”
