Ann Coulter Joke about Meghan McCain was Sad
Ann Coulter Joke was Sour
Ann Coulter chose not to apologize, but defend her statement that Meghan McCain and the family of Republican senators be murdered so they can support gun legislation. Coulter defended the joke Thursday on Sean Hannity's Fox News show, but it was not funny.
"MSNBC's Martin Bashir suggested that Republican senators need to have a member of their families killed for them to support the Democrats' gun proposals. (Let's start with Meghan McCain!)"
Coulter argued that she was making a joke and people laughed, but it was short of that. Senators are facing a lot of pressure reagrding the proposed gun legislation.The NRA is scoring the votes of senators and many of them are divided between the second amendment and stop gun violence.
I think Coulter should use her jokes to help propose ideas for gun legislation. I am sure that if someone acted on Coulter's words and tried to kill Meghan McCain, the joke would be even less funnier.
