Ann Coulter and TV host Sean Hannity clashed on Wednesday over the tactics being used by some Tea Party lawmakers in Washington. While Hannity commended lawmakers for taking a stand for their principles, Coulter suggested the movement is being hijacked by “con men” who are “tricking Americans to send them money.”
Coulter also criticized Tea Party lawmakers who are focusing on “defeating establishment Republicans” instead of Democrats because the party should be united in taking back the Senate in 2014 — regardless of which Republicans get elected to office. The ultimate goal should be to repeal Obamacare, she said.
“You have to elect Republicans!” Coulter proclaimed. “How about going after Democrats?”
When asked if conservatives should just stop fighting and allow Democrats to win every battle, Coulter said they should fight to give the GOP a majority.
While she said she “loves” the Tea Party, Coulter also warned people against trusting “shysters” within the movement who say they are working to defeat “establishment Republicans.” She did not specifically name any of the “shyster” lawmakers.
“Some should be defeated,” Hannity interjected.
“I’ll tell you who should be defeated, and that’s how you can tell these people are shysters: The ones who vote for amnesty. Are they going after Lindsey Graham? No they are not,” Coulter said.
“Some are,” Hannity disagreed again.
In conclusion, Coulter said there is still hope for America if people stop donating to the “shysters.”
