An interview between Fox News host Sean Hannity and “In Trump We Trust” author Ann Coulter Monday devolved into a rant against the “corrupt media” as the pair re-litigated whether Republican nominee Donald Trump once mocked a disabled reporter with a congenital condition (he did).
“There’s a reckoning coming,” Hannity said on his radio show. “After this election, there is going to be war declared by me against every corrupt media figure that has been in bed with Hillary this entire campaign.”
“And just, the incessant lying,” Coulter said. “If you’re listening and you’re on the fence and you worry about some the things you’ve heard about Trump, first of all: It is all lies.”
After railing against President Obama for “relying on the ignorance of his voters of Hillary’s voters,” Coulter launched into a plug for her recent Breitbart article while insisting Ttump never mocked a reporter.
“[In the article,] I didn’t even get to the lie about Trump mocking a disabled reporter … this is how Trump imitates a flustered person. He’s done the exact same imitation, in fact in that speech the media knew they were lying, because later in that same speech he did an imitation of a general being flustered—does the exact same arms waving, mouth hanging open.
He’s done the same imitation of himself being flustered so you know, fine he’s not going to be a sketch actor on on ‘Saturday Night Live,’ but he was not mocking a disabled person.”
Coulter then argued that Serge Kovaleski, the New York Times reporter Trump imitated at a rally last November, “allowed himself to be lied about for the greater good of slandering Donald Trump,” adding the author was indeed flustered and therefore deserved Trump’s derision.
“Most importantly his disability isn’t what Trump was doing,” Coulter insisted, purporting Trump’s hand gyrations were more like “somebody with epilepsy” than someone with Kovaleski’s congenital condition.
“If it’s horrible a thing to mock disabled person,” Coulter continued. “Isn’t it an equally horrible thing to falsely accuse someone of mocking a disable person?”
“The left does every election though,” Hannity responded. “They falsely accused poor Mitt Romney of hating women being racist and and not caring about anybody but the rich.”
