Ann Coulter is a popular topic of debate any time she says an awful thing. She puzzles liberals who wonder if she actually believes the bile she spews with a big shiny smile, or if instead she’s a fierce opportunist who plays to the hard right to make a fortune selling books, appearances, and a special line of muffs to keep tiny Grinch-sized hearts warm at night. (I assume. I’m not googling what the fuck Coulter sells.) Of course it doesn’t matter either way. She’s awful. And we can all agree that the thing she loves more than country or herself or money is fame. She’s drawn to the hot seat like a moth to a flame. So of course she was going to say something racist and grotesque on the eve of election night. The sky is also blue. This is just the way of things.
If only people with at least 4 grandparents born in America were voting, Trump would win in a 50-state landslide.— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) November 8, 2016
Thankfully, the way of things also includes Twitter rising up to point out to Coulter how next level stupid this statement it. Sure, she means to basically say that America would be better off if only white people could vote, because she forgets that people of color have been in the U.S. dating back to the actual fucking natives of America! But she also forgets her criteria would mean the Republican Babadook couldn’t vote either.
Taking Ann Coulter's suggestion to its logical conclusion would mean today's election would be straight Navajo v Cherokee face off #USA2016— Prof Patrick McGhee (@ProfMcGhee) November 8, 2016

That's the exact standard the Nazis used.

.@AnnCoulter are you counting the descendants of the Native Americans these people’s families wiped out or— Anthony F. Irwin (@AnthonyIrwinLA) November 8, 2016
I’m pretty damn proud to say not all four of my grandparents were born here. Shows how far we’ve come.— Anthony F. Irwin (@AnthonyIrwinLA) November 8, 2016
Shout out to Ann Coulter for getting in that last minute coded white supremacist rhetoric, right before the election https://t.co/BbLMvLbJiR— Tariq Nasheed (@tariqnasheed) November 8, 2016

@AnnCoulter you are without doubt the most ridiculous thing twitter ever spewed forth. And that is quite a contest to win..,— Francis Leach (@SaintFrankly) November 8, 2016
Kristy Puchko’s four grandparents were all born in the US, and she’s voting for Hillary.
