OUCH! Conservative Legends Trade Blows Over Cruz’s Citizenship In HEATED Debate

Conservative radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt interviewed Ann Coulter on his show on Wednesday, and sparks flew between the two.

Hewitt asked Coulter if she really wanted Donald Trump to deport South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, who is the daughter of Indian immigrants.

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter had earlier tweeted:

Coulter responded to Hewitt that it was a joke.

She stated:

“But, Hugh, this is really unbelievable. I mean, people always say oh, there’s no Washington establishment. I used to say that when they said it about Mitt Romney, because he wasn’t Washington establishment. He had the toughest position on immigration until Donald Trump rose like a phoenix. But look at this. The Democratic president gives a speech last night, and the Republicans respond, and both speeches attack Donald Trump. And Nikki Haley going on an on about immigrants, and we need more immigrants, and anyone who’s willing to work should be allowed to emigrate here. Are they not seeing what’s happening with Donald Trump?”

After some additional talk about Haley, Hewitt started a new discussion. “We’re cross-talking now. But let me go back to the key thing,” Hewitt said. “I want to talk about Ted Cruz.”

Hewitt asked Coulter whether she believes Cruz is eligible to be president, and Coulter responded, “I’ve always thought he wasn’t natural born.”

She added that while Cruz is a United States citizen, “He’s not natural born. You cannot be natural born unless you are the child of an ambassador, or if we were in a monarchy, but we’re not, a child of the king himself.”

Hewitt pushed back by saying, “Ann, you can’t just make stuff…”

Coulter jumped in. “Ambassadors, I would assume, this is a case that hasn’t been ruled on, that the children of military, somebody serving in the military is natural born,” she said. “But other than that, not born on U.S. soil, you’re not natural born.”

Hewitt said, “Ann, and I respect that you hold this position forcefully, but would you acknowledge that you are a minority of about three?”

Coulter held firm. “The law is the law, and I don’t care how many people agree with me,” she said.

Hewitt stated, “It isn’t close to unclear. He’s absolutely a citizen.”

He closed the interview by saying, “it’s always a pleasure, talk to you soon.”

Ann Coulter Just Revealed Her ‘Dream Team’ Presidential Ticket – Many Won’t Like It

Conservative author and pundit Ann Coulter sparked some impassioned debate this week when she posted a tweet containing her ideal Republican presidential ticket. A vocal supporter of primary front-runner Donald Trump’s immigration rhetoric, Coulter included the brash billionaire to lead her “dream team.”

While a few social media users added to the anti-Trump backlash she has already received, plenty of her fellow Trump supporters jumped in to lambaste her vice-presidential pick: 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

Of course, several commenters asserted that her dream more closely resembled their nightmare.

A common issue with the viability of such a ticket, many users noted, is that Trump and Romney seem to harbor some animosity toward each other.

Watch: Raven From ‘The View’ Calls Out Ann Coulter, But The Tables Instantly Get Turned

Conservative firebrand Ann Coulter appeared on ABC’s The View once again, this time to talk about her new book about immigration. This show is perceived by many as a hostile environment for any conservative, and Coulter has been attacked on the show before–and this week was no exception as panel member Raven-Symoné tried to hit Coulter over her rhetoric. One might say Coulter gave as good as she got.

Before Symoné spoke up, the panel introduced Coulter by quizzing her on her support for real estate mogul Donald Trump’s bid for president of the United States.

Coulter noted that much of her interest in Trump is because of his stance against illegal immigration and his position that our immigration system is broken.

The Trump discussion took up the first half of Coulter’s time on the show; but soon, the discussion turned toward Coulter’s own position on illegal immigrants. And after a few minutes on that topic, former child actress Raven Symoné thought to make a more pious statement about public behavior by charging that Coulter is too bellicose in her rhetoric.

“My mom taught me when I was younger,” Symoné began sonorously, “‘If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all’. And why do you think that it’s important to mud sling and have these words that obviously touch the hearts and souls of so many people in America being said when we’re taught something different as a child. Can you explain that to me and why do you think your success is based on that?”

Coulter, who’s latest book is titled, Adios, America, The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country Into a Third World Hellhole, looked at the young questioner with a bit of incredulity and hit her back hard.

“Well, I’m at least talking about policy. You have a position on what people’s names should be. ‘Watermelondrea’ … I mean, you’ll insult people for their names. I’m talking about a government policy that affects all Americans, and immigrants, and the people living here. And it’s harming our country. So you don’t follow it.”

Coulter’s “Watermelondrea” comment referred to an incident where Symoné insisted that she would never hire someone with an ethnic sounding name like “Watermelondrea,” a name she heard on the Internet. But it wasn’t long before the actual person named Watermelondrea was criticizing Symoné for making fun of the name.

So, in short order, The View panelist was sent scrambling to apologize for attacking Watermelondrea’s name.

Coulter’s stint on the show only lasted a few more minutes, during which there was a lot of cross talk and interruptions and only partial answers; but another panelist asked the author, “Are you against all immigration, or just illegal immigration?”

“Right now the entire immigration system,” Coulter said in response, “the bureaucracy has got to be shut down because it is being used to serve, again, the business elites, the upper classes, the people who get to have all the cheap maids, it’s driving down (the economy).”

Coulter went on to wonder why, if a majority of immigrants are on welfare, we should be importing more of that sort of people.

Ann Coulter Has Hope For America Again

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter has hope for America again now that Donald Trump is running as a Republican candidate for president. The author of Adios America introduced Mr. Trump at Tuesday evening’s Iowa campaign stop.

Since Donald Trump has announced that he’s running for president, I’ve felt like I’m dreaming. I can’t believe I turn on TV and prime time TV every night they’re talking about anchor babies. They’re talking about sanctuary cities. They’re talking about Mexican rapists.

Ms. Coulter has hope again for America now that Donald Trump is running for president.

I have not had this much hope for America since November 7, 2012. No particular reason. I was just rather depressed that day.

God hasn’t given up on America yet.

Coulter mocked Democrats for their use of phrasing.

Apparently liberals think ‘anchor baby’ isn’t pleasant sounding. They prefer words like ‘aborted baby.’ But I have an idea: How about… How about ‘anvil babies?’ Because that’s what anchor babies are around the necks of the American taxpayer.

Coulter took a jab at the Republican Party’s strategy of avoiding conflict.

The Republican Party’s typical position is to preemptively surrender whenever liberals start yelling, ‘Ooh, that’s mean, you can’t use that word.’ Oh, I did not realize The New York Times had made a finding that anchor baby is racist. Henceforth, I shall not use it.

Well, they found something new with Donald Trump. No, he said ‘I’ll use anchor baby.’ And now Americans are finding out about, not only the policy of anchor babies, but the policies of these speech Nazis.

And they are going to learn when it comes to Donald Trump, when it comes to Donald Trump maybe they better just keep their mouths shut next time.

Someone yelled from the crowd about the border wall Donald Trump wants to build.

I love the idea of the Great Wall of Trump. I want to have a two-drink minimum. Make it a big world-wide tourist attraction and every day, live drone shows whenever anyone tries to cross the border.

LISTEN: Radio Host Asks Ann Coulter How She Feels About Carly Fiorina. Coulter EXPLODES

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter publicly expressed her disdain for GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina Tuesday, going so far as to say the former Hewlett Packard CEO is the beneficiary of “affirmative action” from the Republican Party.

“At first, I admit I was suspicious because I hate this, ‘Oh, a woman can talk, oh, that’s great!’” Coulter said on The Mike Gallagher Show.

But I just hate this affirmative action among Republicans. Look Republicans, you’re very sweet people, I love that you’re trying to promote someone because, ‘whoa, it’s a woman,’ but women can talk, it’s really not breaking news, and then yesterday among the attacks I saw on the magnificent Donald Trump immigration plan was, you know, everybody wants to get rid of anchor babies.

What specifically drew Coulter’s ire was remarks Fiorina made about birthright citizenship. “It would take passing a constitutional amendment to get that changed,” the former Hewlett Packard executive told NBC News Monday. “It’s part of our 14th Amendment. So honestly, I think we should put all of our energies, all of our political will into finally getting the border secured and fixing the legal immigration.”

“The 14th Amendment, you’ll all remember, came after the Civil War; remember what the Civil War was about?” refuted Coulter. “That was freeing the slaves. It wasn’t about allowing illegal aliens to run across the border, drop a baby and say, ‘Ha ha, you missed me, I’m a citizen now.’”

Coulter’s favorite GOP presidential candidate, Donald Trump, is a staunch supporter of ending the practice. “This remains the biggest magnet for illegal immigration,” Trump said in his immigration proposal.

Other Republican presidential candidates in favor of ending birthright citizenship are: retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, Sen. Lindsay Graham of South Carolina, Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, and former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania.  

Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey told radio host Laura Ingraham earlier this month that “[Birthright citizenship] may have made sense at some point in our history, but right now, we need to re-look at all that.”
