What is Ann Coulter? For the past couple of months, Coulter’s name has been in the headlines every single day as she drops pipe bomb after pipe bomb about illegal immigration, Hillary Clinton and whatever generic conservative ‘we don’t like change’ propaganda we’ve all heard a bajillion times.
Her book entitled, Adios America: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country Into a Third World Hellhole, was released on June 1st which means she’s working overtime to move merch. I’ve read excerpts and it’s not bad. It’s surprisingly informative for a book you’d expect to be full of conspiracy theories and racial slurs.
Ann Coulter is currently the most vocal Trump supporter (outside of that bald guy at your gym who ALWAYS grunts as loud as he can and slams the equipment of the ground when he’s finished). But she’s not a blind supporter. She willing to and has shit on him whenever he softens his policies. You kind of have to respect that a bit.
Her press tour even includes being on the Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe. Her agent at least deserves an edible arrangement for that booking, right? Apparently, Coulter became the number one target of the night.
While the crux of Comedy Central’s “Roast” series is to in fact roast the celebrity at hand, and we’re not exactly sure what Coulter was doing there in the first place, comedians slammed Coulter harder than Lowe. According to the Daily Mail, British comedian Jimmy Carr called Coulter “one of the most repugnant, hateful, hatchet-face b-tches alive.” He also joked (but is this a joke?), “It’s not too late to change, Ann. You could kill yourself!” Hilarious.
Where is the line between comedy and degradation? Instead of decrying Coulter’s politics, the men (except Jewel) referred repeatedly to Coulter’s looks, and to calling her a “b-tch.”
Jeff Ross said, “Ann Coulter wants to help Trump make America great again. You can start by wearing a burka. You have a face that would make doves cry.” Peyton Manning equated her to an animal: “I just realized that I’m not the only athlete up here tonight. As you all know, earlier this year Ann Coulter won the Kentucky Derby.” David Spade said, “It looks like she’s having a good time. I haven’t seen her laugh this hard since Trayvon Martin got shot.”
Coulter appeared prepared, however, to face the constant insults. She joked, “I’d like to welcome everyone to the Ann Coulter roast with Rob Lowe,” reports USA Today. Coulter also told Fox that her “whole career has been an Ann Coulter roast.”
And this leads me to the overall point of this article, I like Ann Coulter. I think unlike the typical random Fox News conservative psychopaths who want Hillary Clinton to sit in a guillotine and wouldn’t mind seeing black people back in chains, Ann Coulter is fully aware of her role in the culture.
“my whole career has been an Ann Coulter roast”. This is not some pretty face that got thrown in front of the camera because she has an opinion or too. This is not a pretty face. Ann is a highly educated woman with degrees on degrees on degrees.
Fun fact, I met Ann when I was a young bright eyed child at Stony Brook University so perhaps I’m biased here but if you actually listen to her speak you can tell she’s not a dumb chick making wild uneducated claims.
