Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) on Thursday voted in favor of starting impeachment hearings against President Donald Trump — and it was a major disappointment for some of the conservative fans she’s made in the past for defying Democratic Party orthodoxy.
One such fan, conservative author Ann Coulter, flew into a fit of denial after being told that Gabbard had actually voted in favor of the impeachment inquiry — and even falsely claimed that the congresswoman from Hawaii was really a senator.
“No she didn’t,” a defiant Coulter wrote. “Tulsi is a SENATOR, meaning she’s in the SENATE and doesn’t vote on HOUSE resolutions.”
Coulter’s followers quickly jumped in to correct her — and ridiculed her for botching a very basic fact about a high-profile politician.
Check out some reactions below.
Screencapping for when Ann realizes Tulsi is, in fact, not a Senator.

Ann, Tulsi is not a senator. She is the Governor of Hawaii. Please make a note.

Ann, I'm sure if you check the bottle of your hair bleach there's a fine-print warning on there about ventilating your bathroom first

It's amazing that people consider you to be a source of information.

The fact that you CAPITALIZED your mistake just makes it even funnier.

I'd sober up first before posting to twitter, Ann. Tulsi is a member of the House.
