Ann Coulter excuses Trump’s ridicule of disabled reporter: He was imitating ‘standard r*tard’

Published

on

Even if Ann Coulter’s feelings are hurt over his recent “softening” on immigration, she had no problem justifying the Republican presidential candidate’s mockery of reporter Serge Kovaleski, Jezebel reported.

Coulter, who has been backing Trump throughout his run for the GOP nomination, weighed in on Trump’s denigrating remarks toward Kovaleski in her new book.

“He doesn’t jerk around or flail his arms. He’s not r*tarded. He sits calmly, but if you look at his wrists, you’ll see they are curved in,” Coulter wrote. “That’s not the imitation Trump was doing—he was doing a standard r*tard, waving his arms and sounding stupid: ‘Ahhh, I don’t know what I said—ahhh, I don’t remember!’ He’s going, ‘Ahhh, I don’t remember, maybe that’s what I said!'”

Kovaleski lives with arthrogryposis, which causes his joints to contract and his hand to rest at unusual angles. Trump made the remarks during a campaign rally last November to defend his claim that “thousands” of Muslims celebrated the 9/11 attacks.

The remark was quickly turned into fodder for campaign ads on behalf of his opponent, Hillary Clinton, including one that ran during the Democratic National Convention last month.

But Coulter dismissed the issue, calling the chapter in the book regarding Kovaleski, “Disabled Reporter Joins Media Effort to Create More Disabled Americans.”

The book’s publication has been sidetracked somewhat by Coulter’s angry reaction to Trump backing off of his anti-immigrant rhetoric more recently, which caused her to huff online that he was considering “amnesty.”
