Conservative pundit Ann Coulter sat down with “Fox and Friends” Sunday morning and gave her own scathing take on Newt Gingrich‘s big win over Mitt Romney in the South Carolina primary.
Coulter let it rip from the top of the segment, leading off with “Apparently, South Carolinians would rather have the emotional satisfaction of a snotty remark toward the president than to beat Obama in the fall.”
She didn’t stop there. Coulter continued on to make the case that Gingrich is the “least conservative, least electable” candidate who draws his support from the desire of the right wing to hear Obama get called a socialist.
Mediaite transcribed Coulter’s comments as follows:
“This is not going to be the electorate in the fall. I am pretty sure we’ll get everyone who voted for John McCain, since no one voted for John McCain, because we liked McCain, it was to stop Obama. We have those voters and now you have to get people who voted for Obama and having a candidate who calls Obama a Kenyan colonialist or socialist, that is not what you need, and at the same time, with Newt Gingrich you get the name calling for the president, very popular with the tea party crowd, not so popular with independents, and, he won’t put a fence on the border but wants amnesty for illegals and took 1.6 million from Freddie Mac and he attacked Paul Ryan’s plan on Social Security and with Newt Gingrich you throw out the baby and keep the bath water!”
