Ann Coulter set Twitter on fire Thursday with a claim she made about the cost of President Trump’s proposed border wall.

The conservative pundit quoted a tweet from the Washington Examiner’s Byron York — likening the cost of the wall to a year’s worth of “improper payments” from the Earned Income Tax  Credit program — and pointed out another quasi-equal figure.

“Cost of building wall roughly equal to one year’s worth of therapy, hospital costs of little girls raped by illegal immigrants,” Coulter wrote.

Some people didn’t take that well.
