On Tuesday, Ann Coulter sat down at a book party hosted by The Daily Caller to discuss her newest book, “Never Trust a Liberal over 3 — Especially a Republican.” This latest work from the bestselling author takes a critical look within the Republican Party at what went wrong in 2012 and how to improve that going forward.
In her interview with The Daily Caller, Coulter talked about getting booked on MSNBC, the specifics of Republican electoral politics and how she has started watching more CNN since Jeff Zucker took over the cable news network.
On the possibility of going on MSNBC on this book tour:
“I don’t think that’s going to happen. They have six viewers but I’m dying to go on. Can you imagine how fun that would be?”
“For two years I have been taunting Lawrence O’Donnell for being a pussy and that has not worked. Maybe I’ll have to start calling him manly.”
Reaction to Alec Baldwin’s 10 p.m. ET show:
“He should not be serious. He should be funny because he’s really, really funny. And he should definitely have me on. You know I’m constantly defending him, including on Hannity to 14 million listeners.”
Hindsight of the 2012 election:
“I think Romney was the ideal candidate.”
“He’s a businessman who was a governor. By businessman, I mean some of the people I’ve supported in the past. So I’m not just accusing Republicans here. I’ve made the same mistake. I’ve supported Pat Buchanan, Steve Forbes. For a while, I supported Herman Cain, even last year because I loved 9-9-9. Pete DuPont, Duncan Hunter, Phil Crane. We can’t run a congressman, just a businessman, just an inspirational leader. It’s got to be somebody who has been a governor or a senator. We have a fair number of them. We throw them in the debate, see who’s best. There’s Rick Snyder in Michigan, Rick Scott in Florida … Ted Cruz of Texas, Mike Lee of Utah and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin.
