Ann Coulter: Gingrich’s Past Affairs Make Him Like “A Hunchback”
2:25 pm, March 31st | by Amy Tennery
Admittedly, I can’t think of a lot of people who’d consider Newt Gingrich’s multiple affairs to be quote unquote good career moves. But Ann Coulter, during a segment on Fox & Friends this morning, took the criticism one step further: She claimed his past romantic dalliances liken him to a “hunchback.” Oh my.
At least she didn’t compare him to a leper… I guess?
While we’ve always known that Coulter wasn’t a huge fan of Gingrich, her latest comments go beyond her usual vitriol for the GOP candidate:
“I think it was unbecoming of Newt Gingrich to even run for president… [his past is] like being a hunchback — you can’t have two affairs and run for president.”
Seriously, Coulter? Moving past the flaws in her logic (hey, you can have an affair while you’re actually president, clearly), aren’t we past the point likening people with physical disabilities to societal cast-offs?
Maybe there’s some slightly more responsible way of putting things? “His affairs are like looking at a report card and seeing a big F!” Oooo, wait, no, that’s awkward. “His affairs are like having a criminal rec—” nope, can’t do that either. How about, “You can’t have two affairs and then run on a ‘traditional values’ platform.” Ahhh, there it is.
