We heard some ridiculous, head-shaking, face-palming, batshit crazy stuff during the 2016 race for the White House, but resident Medusa-in-Chief Ann Coulter has decided to raise the bar so high that it may never be topped.
In a column she wrote this week and titled, “GOP Blames Victim of Media Rape,” the venomous Ms. Coulter declared:
“Apparently, the only news you’ll be getting from now until the election is the media’s own insane interpretation of every little thing Trump says or does. Anyone remember the week-long scandal about a star on a Trump retweet?
“No one, not even Joe McCarthy, has ever faced this level of obsessive hatred from our constitutionally protected guardians of liberty in the press. Anyone else would be chewed up and spit out after one minute of such relentless attacks.”
Ah yes, when in doubt or under heavy criticism, right wingers always blame the media for doing their jobs and reporting on what a contender for the highest office in the country has said. Excuse the hell out of us, Ann, but we were under the impression that’s exactly what we have the right to do under the U.S. Constitution, which you and other extremists on the right always wrap around you like a blanket when you say something so blatantly racist or indefensible that you know you cannot defend it.
Coulter even goes so far as to insinuate that Trump bears no responsibility for the hateful stuff that flows out of his orange head:
“There’s no strategy for overcoming this level of media hostility. Trump has made some mistakes during this campaign, but he hasn’t done anything wrong for months now. He could say ‘yes,’ and the media would change the question to, ‘Are you a child molester?’
“Craven Republicans who blame Trump for the media’s lies may as well blame a rape victim for wearing a short skirt. Except with Trump, it’s the Muslim standard: They’re blaming a woman’s rape on being a woman.”
You know, Ann, that’s not exactly the best analogy you could have used. But then again, when I consider how much of a spineless sack of human crap you are, I guess I should have expected nothing less.
