A new pro-Obama campaign ad warning women about the alleged dangers that a Mitt Romney presidency would bring has caught the ire of none other than conservative commentator Ann Coulter. The MoveOn.org spot, which features female celebrities, claims that a Romney victory would render abortion illegal, cause rape to be redefined and end cancer screenings aimed at helping women. Naturally, Coulter lambasted the “air-headed actresses” in the ad, dismissing their scare tactics and subsequently bashing the Democratic Party.
“Just the idea of actresses putting together a political ad like this, it’s like listening to trust fund babies,” Coulter said on Fox News’ “Hannity” on Monday. “The reason you have the ability to put this ad together is because of nothing you have done yourself. Completely unearned, God gave you the gift of genetic beauty and nothing between your ears.”
Coulter wasn’t done there. She went on to say that the arguments espoused by Scarlett Johansson, Eva Longoria and Kerry Washington are weak, especially considering some prominent Democrats’ pasts. As a result of these indiscretions, she said that the Hollywood entertainers don’t have a decent argument that would sway independent voters.
“The general idea of air-headed actresses trying to persuade independent voters that Republicans are the ones who are going to be soft on rape,” Coulter said, continuing, “The party that defends John Edwards, Bill Clinton, Dominic Strauss-Kahn and meanwhile, you have these honorable and decent men in the case of Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney.”
Watch Coulter’s comments, below:
As TheBlaze previously reported, Johansson, Longoria and Washington make it clear that a Romney presidency, in their view, would be damaging to women. From de-funding of Planned Parenthood to the claim that Romney will overturn Roe versus Wade, the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion, the actresses attempted to scare voters about the prospects of a Republican White House.
“We have Republicans trying to redefine rape,” Johansson warned, telling voters that this election is paramount. “If you think this election won’t effect you and your life, think again.”
