Conservative commentator Ann Coulter jokingly told MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell on Thursday that Fox’s Sean Hannity is a more knowledgeable person, reports NewsBusters.
In an interview on The Last Word, Coulter and O’Donnell discussed some of the recent comments Coulter had made about New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie being a worthwhile choice for president in 2012. O’Donnell brought up the fact that Coulter also said Christie is soft on certain issues, and she added that the same could be said about former President Ronald Reagan.
“You said that you agreed that Christie is soft on a few things… You agreed with Hannity on that, and I guess you were going to work on him on that,” O’Donnell said. “But you also made the point that Ronald Reagan was soft on a few things, too. What was Reagan soft on other than raising taxes?”
Her arms crossed, Coulter said, “I’m not telling you… I am not going to attack the blessed memory of Ronald Reagan. Well, you know, I mean, when he was governor, the one, his biggest, the biggest regret of his life was that he signed an abortion law.”
O’Donnell added that Reagan had raised taxes when holding political office.
“I don’t think Hannity knows [that Reagan raised taxes]. Does Hannity know that Reagan raised taxes?”
“Hannity knows all,” Coulter said, laughing. “He knows more than you – you’re a Democrat.”
