Whether deliberately, or with flippancy, Coulter enjoys employing elimination rhetoric.
Death threats are well within her wheelhouse. She calls them jokes or denies that they are threats but the truth cannot be denied.
In a recent column, Coulter tried doing just that – denying the obvious.
(Check out Appendix 1 of The Gospel According to Ann Coulter for a panorama of her pronouncements.)
Here are just a few examples:
