Coulter Doubles Down on ‘How Many F—ing Jews’ Tweet

Wednesday after CNN’s Republican presidential debate, conservative commentator Ann Coulter, author of “¡Adios America! The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole,” decline to walk back a tweet she had made about what she deemed to be pandering by some of the candidates in an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File.”

Coulter told host Megyn Kelly that tweet was one of frustration aimed at the candidates for pandering and mentioning Israel when asked about how America will be better when they leave office.

“I was tweeting all night and all the candidates were pandering, pandering, pandering,” Coulter said. “I wrote my column about it. They seem to be hitting certain boxes. Have to mention Reagan, have to mention that they’re pro-life, have to mention Israel. The entire Republican Party is pro-Reagan, pro-life, pro-Israel. The last question was, ‘After your president, how will America be better?’ And suddenly we’re back to Israel again. It’s just this checking off of the boxes and the virtue boxes. And it’s one of the things I like about – and in fact, I think they’re probably pandering, which was the subsequent tweet — they’re probably pandering to evangelicals, not Jews. But it’s just pandering, pandering, pandering — something we all agree on. It’s not really separating the candidates.”
