Republican consultant asks Ann Coulter if Trump ‘pays more’ for backdoor sex
A GOP consultant apologized on Tuesday after insulting conservative author and pundit Ann Coulter in the midst of a dispute with Breitbart.com, the Daily Caller reported.
Rick Wilson said on Twitter that he replied out of “parental anger” when he asked Coulter, “Does [Donald] Trump pay you more for anal?” after she mocked him for his “hilarious public meltdown” against the conservative news site. A screenshot of the exchange can be seen below.
Wilson’s quarrel with Breitbart.com started when the site criticized him for calling Trump supporters “low-information voters.” Wilson later said on Twitter that one of its readers emailed him threatening to rape his daughter.
Other conservatives accused him of using the girl as a political prop to avoid criticism. Wilson later deleted his insult against Coulter and said Breitbart was not responsible for the threatening message.
Coulter later said that Wilson’s “only remaining move is to use the Anthony Weiner ‘MY TWITTER ACCOUNT HAS BEEN HACKED!’ defense.”
Wilson did not do that, but did apologize to family and friends for his response to Coulter’s remark, which he called “vile.”
“I reduced myself by dropping to her level,” he wrote. “My comment was shocking to many of you, and for that I offer a sincere apology.”
