Ann Coulter joined the women of The View on Friday for a conversation about her new book Adios America: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third-World Hellhole, the immigration issue at large and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Coulter was explaining the difference between the “settlers” who built the country hundreds of years ago and today’s illegal “immigrants” when co-host Raven-Symoné asked if she could interrupt Coulter to ask a question.
Coulter then pointed out the host’s apparent hypocrisy; on an episode of The View last week, Symoné said she would have no problem discriminating against people with “ghetto” sounding names if she were an employer: “I’m not about to hire you if your name is ‘Watermelondrea.’ It’s just not going to happen. I’m not going to hire you.”
“Well, I’m at least talking about policy,” Coulter told Symoné. “You have a position on what people’s names should be. ‘Watermelondrea!’ You’ll insult people for their names, I’m talking about a government policy that affects all Americans, and immigrants, and people living here, and it’s harming our country. So you don’t follow it.”
The outspoken conservative commentator also discussed Trump’s presidential run, saying she had been “saying all along” that the billionaire could snag the Republican nomination.
“He’s fantastic,” Coulter said. “I think he’s exposing both parties and how much control the donors have. He’s saying things that people have been dying for someone to say, but they won’t because their donors, in the case of immigration, want the cheap labor… It’s Donald Trump and the American people against the political class and the donor class.”
