Ann Coulter strikes again.
The conservative pundit appeared on The View this morning to promote her new book, Adios America, and as can be expected, the segment was heated. And that’s putting it lightly. When you pit five hosts who love to stir up controversy against one talking head who really loves to stir up controversy, it’s not going to be an easygoing conversation.
Things started off with a bang, with host Ana Navarro asking Coulter about her contentious views on immigration. (For those of you who haven’t been following Ann’s platform on this issue, let’s just put it this way: She’s really not into immigrants). Anyone who gets squirmy around awkward confrontation should probably run away now—and quickly—because things get real.
After having a little tiff on the proper pronunciation of the word adios, Coulter explains that she backs Donald Trump on his opinion that America should be keeping out people from “very poor, very backwards countries.”
Spoiler alert: This doesn’t go over well. True to almost any segment on The View, voices are raised and everyone talks over each other, with the hosts protesting her (frankly, untrue) generalizations that all immigrants are “maids” and Ann firing back constantly. There’s a little gem in which Ann claims to be a Native American, before Raven-Symonésteps in and asks the pundit why she thinks it’s important to “mud-sling” and use words that “obviously touch the hearts and souls of so many people of America.”
True to form, Coulter was ready for an immediate retort, and she decided to go after Symoné’s recent controversial comments in which she said she wouldn’t hire someone with a “ghetto” name. “I’m at least talking about policy,” said Coulter. “You have a position on what people’s names should be. Watermelondrea! I mean you’ll insult people for their names.”
The group went on to fight about the profession of the average immigrants, welfare and a slew of other super light-hearted topics. But we’ll just let you watch for yourselves.
