As is her custom, provocative conservative commentator Ann Coulter was decidedly politically incorrect in her assessment of the final presidential debate last night. Ms. Coulter took to Twitter where she used a derogatory term to describe President Barack Obama.
“I highly approve of Romney’s decision to be kind and gentle to the retard,” Ms. Coulter wrote.
Conservative commentator Ann Coulter caused an uproar this afternoon after she posted a Tweet mocking Chinese activist Chen Guangcheng for his blindness, but she has no regrets. Ms. Coulter told The Politicker she thinks the Tweet was funny and she’s surprised people were offended on behalf of the blind rather than mad at her for being insensitive to the plight of people living in China.
“Wow. I felt worse about making light of communist hellholes known for slaughtering their own people, but it still made me laugh,” Ms. Coulter said when we asked her about the controversy.
She also shared another bit of blindness-based humor with us.
Chris Danielsen, a spokesman for the National Federation for the Blind, was not amused by Ann Coulter’s crack making fun of Chinese activist Chen Guangcheng’s blindness. Ms. Coulter mocked Mr. Chen with a Tweet this afternoon.
“Couldn’t we just tell that blind Chinese dissident that he’s in America now?” she wrote.
Mr. Danielsen told The Politicker comments like Ms. Coulter’s have a damaging effect on the blind community.
See No Evil
Conservative commentator Ann Coulter knows how we should have solved the tricky situation with blind Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng.
“Couldn’t we just tell that blind Chinese dissident that he’s in America now?” Ms. Coulter wrote on Twitter.
