Ann Coulter is…so many things. Despicable. Racist. A horrible human being. Above all else one word rings true: Idiot. Ann Coulter is truly just an idiot.
This is the woman who doesn’t believe we’re all immigrants if you go back far enough in our lineage because she says she’s descended from “settlers.” By that she means “Anglo-Saxon white people.” That kind of ignorance is the theme upon which Coulter has built her career in conservative radio.
Her latest losing battle with stupidity came with a Bloomberg interview in which she defends the antics of Donald Trump poking fun at a disabled reporter. As it turns out, according to Coulter, Trump can’t be held responsible for mocking that man because he wasn’t doing disabled person, he was doing “standard retard.”
Yes, that’s exactly what she said. “Standard retard.” In the world of Ann Coulter, that’s a perfectly acceptable excuse for not only how Trump mocked a man who happens to show similar physical traits to Trump’s “retard,” but it also explains his impressions of a general who disagreed with him and Ted Cruz. In each case, Trump was doing the perfectly acceptable “standard retard.”
Has your jaw hit the floor yet?
The best is yet to come. “Standard Retard” is perfectly acceptable because of the movie “Tropic Thunder,” in which Robert Downey Junior mentions “going full retard.” Yes, that’s right…a line in a Ben Stiller movie — meant to be as offensive as Pat Healy in There’s Something about Mary — makes it perfectly acceptable for a man running for President of the United States to pull out a “standard retard” character when mocking his political foes.
You just can’t make this stuff up. Here it is, straight from the horse-faced mouth:
She sure is a peach, isn’t she? Her logic is infallible…if you’re a bigoted white supremacist asshole who thinks the bulk of Americans are beneath you based exclusively on their lack of pure Aryan features.
