Monday on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” conservative columnist Ann Coulter and Republican strategist Liz Mair debated the merits of the candidacy of Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump and the eligibility of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to be president of the United States.
Partial transcript as follows:
MAIR: In 2013, you were out there saying Ted Cruz was a natural-born citizen and eligible to run for office. People can check my Twitter feed, I retweeted your tweet from 2013 today.
COULTER: I changed my mind.
MAIR: Well you were right the first time … Ann also said that Mitt Romney was the “perfect” and best Republican candidate.
COULTER: He was, there was no Trump back then.
MAIR: And she kissed Chris Christie’s backside up the wazoo.
COULTER: Until he went bad on immigration.
MAIR: This is not. Yeah–
COULTER: In fact, my ideal ticket is Trump-Romney. That’s what I’m really hoping for. That’s the dynamite combo.
MAIR: And that’s the proof right there that you are in no way conservative, and in no way interested in conservative policy.
