Ann Coulter took the gloves off following Michelle Obama’s commencement address at Tuskegee University. Appearing on the Fox News program Hannity, Coulter spoke to Sean Hannity about the First Lady’s comments, which she characterized as “Rev. Wright”-esque.
During the address, Obama spoke about how she was held to an alternative set of expectations from other First Ladies because of the color of her skin.
“Will she be too angry? Too loud? Too emasculating?” Michelle said, referring to some of those racial stereotypes she was weighed against.
For Ann Coulter, it was an eye-rolling moment.
“I think she’s just letting out her Reverend Wright now,” Coulter said, referring to the Obamas’ one-time minister, who said, “It’s not God bless America. It’s God d*** America.”
The controversial conservative pundit also drew a distinction between the hard-working, honest black people in America and what she referred to as a “predator class,” or unlawful black people who prey on other black people.
She and Hannity talked about the 123 black people killed by police gunfire last year compared to the 326 whites — a stat Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly shared with radio host Tavis Smiley on a recent edition of his popular talk show (via the Blaze).
Coulter also decried the idea that there were “peaceful Baltimore protesters.”
“Oh my gosh, this nonsense about, oh, so many blacks are in prison, well how did they get there?” Coulter asked. “In addition to the peaceful Baltimore protester I want to put on a milk carton — have you seen this? — I want to see the innocent person in prison.”
“Yes, America does owe black America for slavery, for the Democratic policies of Jim Crow,” Coulter continued. “But I think we’ve — we’re making it up now, when you’re getting admitted to Princeton when you can’t read, is that enough yet?”
Here’s the full video from Mediaite.
As you might imagine, commenters at the website were not happy over this video.
“Would love to hear the conversation conservatives have about white on white crime,” wrote one. “All the wives and children slaughtered by their husbands. All the children raped by their fathers, uncles, teachers, all the innocent elementary school children. One has to wonder aloud if white lives matter to conservatives and the bigot class.”
“Ann Coulter is a Troll who needs to go back to her home under the bridge,” wrote a second.
