Coulter Hawks Hillary – Again!

Remember the good old days when Ann Coulter hated John McCain so much that she vowed to campaign for Hillary?

Ann’s back!


Before we look at now, let’s recall what happened back then.

Coulter Backs Hillary in 2008

Early in the presidential race, McCain’s campaign seemed doomed, but then he staged a comeback. To counter McCain’s comeback, Coulter declared that Hillary Clinton was more conservative than John McCain. Coulter asserted, “I think [Hillary Clinton] would be stronger on the war on terrorism. I absolutely believe that.”[1]

Coulter later vowed, “I will campaign for her if it’s McCain [for GOP nominee].[2]

On a later show, Coulter reaffirmed her hatred for McCain, saying, “But I’m not going to vote for a Democrat, so I won’t vote for John McCain.”[3] She insisted that “Hillary would be better on national security.”

Earlier at a CPAC conference, Coulter quipped, “The only way I can promise that I won’t vote for Hillary Clinton is if John McCain appoints her as his vice president.”[4]

Coulter was saved from voting for Hillary due to Obama’s ascendency.

So much has changed since the Obama presidency began, yet so much is still the same.

Coulter Backs Hillary in 2015

In the meantime, Coulter briefly supported Chris Christie, and, later, fell into undying love for Mitt Romney,[5] a love which waxed strong until Donald Trump launched his presidential campaign.

Now, a newly enraptured Coulter[6] exclaims, “Donald Trump, my new hero!”[7]

So much so, that Coulter actually supports a third-party candidacy by Trump.[8] Coulter assumes that if Trump is not the nominee, then it will be either Bush or Rubio and that either of them would lose to Hillary. (A lot of disputable assumptions there.)[9]

Coulter hates Bush and Rubio as much as she hates McCain, so much so that she lets her hatred get the best of her. Coulter is so repelled at the thought of a Bush or Rubio presidency that, in the event Trump is not the nominee and that Trump does not run as a third-party candidate, she would throw her allegiance to Hillary Clinton. Again!

Coulter instructed her listeners, “You have to vote for Hillary over those two [Bush and Rubio].”[10]

Why? She explained: “At least with Hillary, she wants to socialize any other industries that haven’t been socialized, she wants to lose wars for us abroad, she wants to take your children away, make abortion mandatory, gay marriage mandatory, perhaps. There are a lot of items on her agenda. Whereas, Jeb and Rubio: single-mindedly focused on opening the border and passing amnesty.”

Yes! Coulter charges Hillary (whom she claimed is more conservative than McCain) with a very long list of very left-wing agenda items (which would, of course, include amnesty, but she fails to list that one) as reasons to vote for Hillary!


Coulter would rather support a Democrat nominee whose entire platform is far-left (including on immigration) than support Bush or Rubio, who would at least rein in the excesses of the Left.

Remember, Hillary is more pro-open borders than any GOP candidate! In May, Hillary announced, “We can’t wait any longer for a path to full equal citizenship. … This is where I differ from everybody on the Republican side. Make no mistake. Today, not a single Republican candidate – announced or potential – is clearly and consistently supporting a path to citizenship. Not one.”

Hillary reaffirmed his views on immigration just a few weeks ago.

When will Coulter support a real conservative?[11]
