Ann Coulter not on board Donald Trump’s birther crusade

Some conservative commentators have applauded Donald Trump for challenging President Barack Obama on his birth certificate. Conservative author Ann Coulter isn’t one of them.

On Monday night’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel, Coulter said the “birther” conspiracy has been long debunked by other conservative outlets.

“Well, I think maybe I’ve been watching too much Charlie Sheen because Donald Trump seems perfectly sane to me,” Coulter said. “I don’t know where he gets this $2 million Obama has spent to keep his birth certificate — he posted his birth certificate on his web page. I am glad that Donald Trump is bringing it up so that people who haven’t been paying attention and don’t know that the American Spectator, Human Events, Fox News – you know, every conservative outlet has already shot down this rumor, which by the way, was started by the Hillary Clinton campaign.”

Coulter said she was unclear as to why the so-called long-form birth certificate had more validity than the other birth certificate Obama has produced. She noted that reputable conservative media outlets won’t touch the story any more and it is regularly reported on by liberal outlets.

“Now they will have a chance to find out this is Donald Trump’s Pierre Salinger moment,” Coulter said. “You can’t believe everything you read on the Internet. Obama has produced his birth certificate. There were announcements that ran in two contemporaneous Hawaiian newspapers at that time. The head of the Hawaiian medical record has announced I have seen the long-form you all want. I don’t know why the long form is considered more credible than the short form. They are both from the same office. The State Department accepts the short form or as we call it the birth certificate. Hawaii accepts the birth certificate short form. So, I mean, it is a conspiracy theory that won’t die on the Internet, but every responsible, conservative organization to look at it and shot it down, which is why you hear it being talked about exclusively on the liberal cable stations.”

    Examining Ann Coulter who has been hanging with Al Sharpton and Jerry Rivers (Geraldo) in bashing Conservatives, she does seem to be a Charlie Sheen goddess wanna be….using her own smear of Donald Trump.

    Coulter announced months ago she had settled Obama’s birth certificate and certified him. Strange since even the Democratic Hawaiian Governor was still trying to release Obama’s documents and could not see them as they are privileged and hidden by Obama.
    That alone exposes Ann Coulter as an Obama voter who simply is deluded, as she has not run the numbers in Obama has spent indeed around 2 million dollars in court costs to hide all his documents.

    The reality is Ann Coulter is a fraud. The reality is Mr. Obama has what in Hawaii is called a RECORDED BIRTH which is what that state gave to illegals born there, because Hawaii was in 1960 starting on a Frank Marshall Davis marxist change for Hawaii from GOP big land ownership to 3rd world unions.

    What Mr. Obama exposes is this treasonous practice of Hawaii for more welfare dollars in registering anything that breathed.

    All of this exposes Ann Coulter as a person like Peggy Noonan, Noel Sheppard and Bill O’Reilly. People who made a great deal of money, milked a great deal of fame and voted for Obama, while claiming to be right wing.

    I once had respect for Ann Coulter’s mouth, but from her smearing Joseph Farah to her smearing Donald Trump on an issue she has been exposed now in knowing absolutely nothing about, she is just another teleprompter reader with an Obama brain.

    Sean Hannity has far too many of these Rovians and Obamites on as he claims to be a Conservative. These are the very skulking ilk who destroyed Conservatives chances in 2010 and gave us this Limbaugh Gridlock.

    There are numbers of talking heads Mr. Hannity, you don’t need Obama’s Fifth Column propagandizing your air time, especially when it is as uninformed as Ann Coulter.

      “That alone exposes Ann Coulter as an Obama voter”

      Yuh-huh.

    Arizona is a birther state:

    PHOENIX – The Arizona Senate has approved a revised bill requiring presidential candidates to prove they are U.S. citizens eligible to run for the office.

    “reputable conservative media outlets” – you’d better list them for me Ann. You just came out and said radiation is good for you. That works out well since radiation is blowing over the U.S. & no one is reporting it, however the EPA just raised permissible levels. My, how things change.

    Donald just posted his birth certificate; he wants to see Barack’s … or Barry’s … (?)

    • gatortarian

      So by the logic of the left Obama is radiating our air! At least that was the reasoning when the arsenic levels remained unchanged under Bush.

      • mr.wordsworth

        sorry, can’t speak for the left but the Obama administration and the media and the EPA are attempting to cover up the threat posed by radiation by omission. Left/right theatrics is to control the peasants. Money controls politics; the agenda remains the same, only rhetoric changes. Case in point: open borders/Patriot Act/wars. imho

          The amount of rads floating over are minuscule. A one day dose at the site is slightly more than a woman gets in a mammogram. Thats directly at the site jet stream dispersion would spread that out and dilute it to levels that can be seen as below negligible. The amount a person in the US would see from Japan is closer to the levels seen when you eat a banana.

  • epobirs

    Are people really serious about Trump as a presidential candidate? Is he even a real person? I always thought of him as a corporate cartoon mascot, like the Michelin Man.

    “I never heard anybody ask for McCain’s and he was born outside of the US. (on a Naval base). I never heard so much talk about this for any other POTUS ever.”

    So you’re argument is that you are uninformed, and when this issue is brought up (usually by the Left or by bloggers), we lose 10 votes (out of 60 million) of similarly ignorant people?

    Not really that persuasive.

  • moderatechris

    Every time someone mentions the birth certificate we lose 10 votes in Ohio and Florida. Ann is simply trying to prevent that.

    I never heard anybody ask for McCain’s and he was born outside of the US. (on a Naval base). I never heard so much talk about this for any other POTUS ever.

    For this reason, this whole conversation seems fishy and is a turn off to most Americans (myself included). People like Trump are so worried about the primaries that they will miss the big prize.

    Again, Every time someone mentions the birth certificate we lose 10 votes in Ohio and Florida. Keep that in mind.

    • gatortarian

      “I never heard anybody ask for McCain’s and he was born outside of the US”

      Shocking that the press hasn’t bother to inform you that the Senate held hearings on McCain’s eligibility but not Obama’s. Plus the press was giddy to report on his birth status until Obama was chosen.

    1/ Birtherism was invented by Hillary’s team, but even THEY knew it was too stupid to do anything but backfire on them. That’s why they handed it off to our side.
    2/ Birtherism sucks the attention away from some REAL damn questions about Obeyme’s background, like:
    a/ Why did Tony Rezko, future convicted felon, buy Barack Obama A HOUSE? (*)
    b/ Why did Michelle Obama’s cushy “job” (‘vice president of community relations’ at the University Of Chicago Hospital ) NOT EXIST until she had it, AND NOT EXIST after she left it.

    (*) Yeah that’s an oversimplification. O supporters are free to explain the complexities of that deal, in a way that makes O look good, if they think that’s possible.

      The last time I read – off of the fringe loonytoon rightwing website – that dirty commie Obama wasn’t even a Senator from Illinois!! What about that?

      • stoopdavydave

        What about what? What about some bullshit that you pretended to read on some other website? On some website, yeah, which you don’t even bother to make up a name for, you supposedly read that “Obama wasn’t even a Senator from Illinois!! ” , right of course sure you did, and it’s MY job to prove that he wasn’t one, or what?

        “What about that? ”

        We don’t know “What about that? ” until you give us the link to go and read what was said. What website was it on? Was it a credible one? If not, then why is it anyone’s responsibility to explain it except the person that said it? Are you responsible for explaining every nutjob comment on Kos? Huffpoo? DU? What about that?

      • stoopdavydave

        What about what? What about some [balderdash] that you pretended to read on some other website?

      Rezko didn’t buy Obama’s house, he sold him a strip of land (I believe it was 6′ wide) from the property next door that Rezko bought the same day (using Blagojevich’s wife as the real estate agent).

      Accuracy is important or your argument will get lost in arguments with Liberals whose entire world seems dependent on defending Captain Transparency.

      • stoopdavydave

        They can belabor the minutia all they like, it only tires them out. When they pause for breath, the question is still there: “And WHY did Tony Mob Fixer Rezko do this very expensive favor for State Senator Obama?” Repeat as necessary.

      • riseabove

        A six foot strip of land, huh? Just enough to get your ducks in a row.

        • des1

          The really funny part is that losing the strip of land made Rezko’s property worthless because it was no longer large enough to build on with Chicago’s codes. So he spent somewhere between $600,000 and $1,000,000 buying property, which he then rendered worthless for a few thousand dollars.

          But nothing to see here. Move along. Blood for oil! BushHitler! Shredding the Constitution! Republicans are racist! The Tea Party are violent extremists!

            “So he spent somewhere between $600,000 and $1,000,000 buying property, which he then rendered worthless for a few thousand dollars.”

            Des, you must be tired.. I think you used the wrong word. “property” should be “a president”, right?

          • stoopdavydave

            “So he spent somewhere between $600,000 and $1,000,000 buying property, which he then rendered worthless for a few thousand dollars.”

            But that’s normal, right? That happens all the time, in Illinois, where mobbed-up real estate moguls deliberately lose an assload of money while doing favors for STATE SENATORS, right?
            That doesn’t stink on ice, no not at all.
            So never mind about that, instead, let’s spend our time and energy getting to the bottom of this burrrrrning question about B.O. supposedly having not the right kind of birth certificate. That couldn’t possibly KEEP ON backfiring on us the way it has been, hell no, any second now our luck is gonna CHANGE.
