President Barack Obama may not be a covert anti-colonialist “Manchurian candidate” from Kenya, but he sure does act like it, according to conservative author Ann Coulter.
“I know we’ve spent seven years trying to persuade right-wingers, no, he really was born in Hawaii, we have his birth certificate, stop with the crazy conspiracy theories,” she said Monday on the Howie Carr radio show. “But, let’s just think for a thought experiment for a moment: if Obama were born in another country, had no love for this country, and had set out to destroy America, what would he be doing differently?”
Carr couldn’t think of anything.
“And now let’s get them smoking pot,” Coulter added sarcastically. “That’ll be a boon to the economy.”
Carr said that studies found that regular marijuana use could reduce a person’s IQ by up to eight points.
“And a hundred points off your initiative and ambition,” Coulter replied. “It is as if they have legalized retard pills. You’ll have a kick, but you won’t be able to accomplish anything in your life, including delivering a newspaper.”
Voters in Colorado and Washington state approved ballot measures to legalize marijuana for recreational use in 2012. Twenty states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana.
