Ann Coulter: I Might Have Been Killed at the Bataclan if Trump Didn’t Run

Ann Coulter, in a major interview with Vanity Fair about her book In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!, suggests that she might have been at the Bataclan theater during the massive terrorist attack last November — if Donald Trump had not run for president.

From Vanity Fair:

Did you support any other candidates in the field?

I hated them all.

All of them?

I hated them all. And in fact, I think Trump saved my life, because looking at that field of candidates, I mean, I was hoping that Mitt Romney was going to get in. He was the best on immigration and, you know, a respectable person. He was good on China and their currency manipulation, and he was the best that we have ever had until Trump. But without him in the race, I just thought, “I can’t do this. I can’t defend any of these guys. I am not going to go on TV and pretend that any of them are going to be better than any Democrat.” And you know, I have always wanted to learn French, so I figured that I would just go to France for 2016 and skip the election year, hang out, learn French. And I happen to love Eagles of Death Metal, so I totally would have been at that concert, except Trump ran so I couldn’t leave.

Romney has come out against Trump. How does that fit for you?

Well, the strange thing is that they are not different on policy. As I point out in my book, the American people are voting on the issues, while these alleged intellectuals and our party leaders say they are voting on substance. “No, we think that he is tacky. We can’t support him.” But you know, Mr. Romney, this is what you said about China. You are the one with the self-deportation. You are the one who wanted to protect American jobs. I mean, I hate to say it because I don’t like psychological explanations, but it’s just so strange when their issues are so similar. . . . I think that there is a little jealousy.
