Ann Coulter was on FNC’s Hannity show last night, where she expanded on her new idea that detainees be given a partial birth abortion instead of waterboarding. Coulter came up with this idea as a dodge when she was asked if she would be waterboarded. Abortion and waterboarding are not related, but this is their latest talking point to defend torture.
Here is the video courtesy of Media Matters:
Hannity brought up that Joy Behar asked Coulter if she would like to be waterboarded, “I asked her if she wanted to be aborted since she supports the right to abortion, which is my new idea for our detainees at Guantanamo, that we just submit them to what liberals consider one of our precious constitutional rights, a partial birth abortion.”
In other news, it has now been over two weeks and Sean Hannity has not mentioned his offer to be waterboarded. Coulter’s attempt to change the subject on torture won’t work. Republicans have realized that supporting waterboarding is a bad idea, so people like Coulter are trying to tie it and Democrats to something unpopular like partial birth abortion.
Is Coulter now stringing words together that make no sense, but sound good? How exactly would you abort an adult that is out of the womb? It is nonsense, or a better term for her point is gibberish. The thought that keeps running through my mind is that conservatives must be truly desperate if they let Coulter out of her cage, and back on television.
