Twitter users lashed out at conservative provocateur Ann Coulter this week after she suggested that Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore's alleged sexual abuse of a 14-year-old was like President John F. Kennedy having a consensual affair with a 19-year-old.
In a tweet defending Moore on Sunday, Coulter shared a link that accused Kennedy of "seducing" a 19-year-old intern.
Hey Dems! JFK had an extra marital affair with 19-year old Mimi Alford when he was 45 years old. https://t.co/E5l3ncflDG— Ann Coulter (@Ann Coulter)1510544139.0
By Monday morning, the message had been replied to over 11,000 times -- and most of the comments shamed Coulter for making the comparison.

@AnnCoulter What’s your point? That’s gross, she was 19, not 14, he’s dead. Are you defending pedophile Roy Moore with your tweet?— Amy Ottinger (@Amy Ottinger)1510548797.0
