It’s not everyday that a liberal pundit comes to the support of controversial conservative Ann Coulter. In fact, can you think of anytime it’s happened?
Well it happened the other night when Bill Maher, of all people, supported Ann Coulter from the ridiculous claims of a liberal guest on his show.
According to The Blaze:
HBO host Bill Maher was forced to come to Ann Coulter’s defense on Friday night after a guest claimed there is a “timeout” on illegal immigration because the U.S. economy “sucks worse than Mexico.”
Maher began the segment by playing June 2015 footage of Coulter predicting that Trump had the best chance to win in a general election. Coulter then took something of a victory lap.
“We have been asking for the wall, we have been asking for a decrease in immigration, and time after time the people rise up, shut down amnesty…and they can’t learn,” Coulter said of the Washington establishment. “I think we know now that the wall is popular.”
Nick Gillespie quickly cut in, claiming that there is currently a “timeout” in illegal immigration because the U.S. economy “sucks worse than Mexico.” He argued there has been more Mexicans leaving the U.S. than entering the country.
“That’s nonsense,” Coulter replied.
“That is nonsense,” Maher chimed in. “Our economy sucks worse than Mexico? Why don’t you move there?”
It’s interesting that Maher would risk alienating his viewers by defending Ms. Coulter, but sometimes the BS coming out of the Left is hard for even the most liberal to support.
It’s fascinating that Mr. Maher did two things to promote Ms. Coulter. First, he showed a clip of her accurate Trump prediction from a year ago. And second, he came to her defense.
Is the Left changing? Is it getting too much? Leave a comment with your thoughts below.
