Ann Coulter is, unsurprisingly, one of the conservative activists most enthusiastic about Donald Trump’s call to ban all Muslims from entering the United States , telling Florida talk radio host Joyce Kaufman yesterday that Trump’s proposal was her “best birthday gift ever!”
Coulter was less impressed by the Republican “eunuchs” who came out to denounce Trump, including Mitt Romney, whom she had hoped would run for president on a joint ticket with Trump .
“The hysteria is amazing, and a lot of the hysteria is coming from our side,” she said. “I mean, I really do think Fox is terrified here, and, I hate to say it, my mild pal Romney has signed onto the denunciations of Trump; Dick Cheney; Paul Ryan; of course all these eunuchs running in the presidential race against Donald Trump.”
Kaufman, for her part, cited the internment of Japanese Americans as a positive precedent for Trump’s idea, saying, “They forget their history. I mean, they forget that Franklin Delano Roosevelt interred the Japanese. They forget that Jimmy ‘Hitler’ Carter made the Iranians, they were banned during the hostage crisis.”
The two, of course, could not resist also attacking immigrants from Mexico.
“I find this the same as not wanting drug cartels and coyotes taking over southwester parts of my country, which now have a drug culture which is killing a whole generation of American youth,” Kaufman said.
Coulter agreed, saying that “probably more Americans are killed by Mexicans” than by Muslims.
Coulter added that the people saying that Trump’s Muslim ban would be impossible to carry out are “the same people who said the exact same thing about building a wall” on the southern border.
“It is absolutely possible to not keep importing …more than 100,000 Muslims per year,” she said.
