VIDEO: Watch Ann Coulter Destroy Anti-Trump Hack on Hannity
Cooke went on the attack right at the start but Ann Coulter let him have it.
The Blaze reported on the exchange:
National Review reporter Charles Cooke appeared on the Fox News Channel Thursday night and confronted host Sean Hannity and guest Ann Coulter about their apparent support for Republican presidential contender Donald Trump.
“I am just astonished by the collective insanity that seems to have marked the conservative movement over the last month,” Cooke said, reacting to Hannity saying Trump’s plan to have Mexico pay for a border wall “makes sense.”
“What’s astonishing about it?” Hannity interjected. “I have been saying secure the border for years and years and years.”
“No, no — I don’t mean secure the border. I mean that Donald Trump, who has put forth no plan whatsoever except to pretend that Mexico is going to pay for a wall, is being taken seriously,” Cooke responded.
“Excuse me! That’s not true. What you’re saying is not true,” Hannity shot back. “He said that he would build a wall. He said he would build it expeditiously. He said he would help get Mexico to pay for it. He would either force them through not giving them aid or tariffs. That’s a specific plan.”
Cooke wasn’t convinced.
“I think what the objections are is that you have a man in the Republican debate who praises single-payer. You have a man still talking about funding Planned Parenthood. You have a man who has flip-flopped perhaps on the wealth tax and on gun control. A man, who on any other circumstances, would have been laughed at through the primary,” the National Review reporter contended.
Coulter said that Cooke’s examples weren’t “really true,” calling them an “exaggeration of his earlier positions.”
