Every time we think Trump has hit rock bottom, the tycoon breaks out the jackhammer and keeps going. The only thing more alarming than The Donald? His supporters.
Welcome to “This Week In Crazy,” The National Memo’s weekly update on the loony, bigoted, and hateful behavior of the increasingly unhinged right wing. Starting with number five:
5. Ann Coulter
People on all sides of the aisle — including other GOP presidential candidates Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz; Dick Cheney (!); House Speaker Paul Ryan; a cornucopia of pundits, celebrities, business moguls, heads of state, disillusioned erst-Trump fans; and even the White House — have announced how appalled they are at Trump’s remarks that he would ban all Muslims from entering the United States.
Of course, consummate troll Ann Coulter has The Donald’s back. Calling his inflammatory remarks her “best birthday gift” in her syndicated column Wednesday, Coulter affirmed that Trump’s proposal was neither racist nor unconstitutional, and that Republicans condemning Trump were merely “eunuchs.”
In the blog post, she shows off her typical flair for sensible, tempered responses to current events:
Given the devastation caused by only two Muslims in San Bernardino, eight Muslims in Paris, two at the Boston Marathon, one at a Chattanooga military recruitment center, one at Fort Hood, 19 on 9/11, etc. etc. — it’s really irrelevant whether “most” Muslim immigrants are peaceful little lambs. It doesn’t take a lot of them to create havoc.
How else have the 1.5 million Muslims admitted since 9/11 made our country better? Their massive welfare use? Overburdening our schools and hospitals? The machete attacks? The clitorectomies? The honor killings? The occasional terrorist attack?
Of course, American Muslims don’t exactly have a monopoly on terrorist attacks or even machete attacks. But Coulter’s implacable hatred of all immigrants knows neither bounds nor logic. Anyway, happy birthday to her.
