She made the remark on Twitter after the third and final presidential debate between Obama and Mitt Romney. “I highly approve of Romney’s decision to be kind and gentle to the retard,” she tweeted.
The conservative commentator was met with some backlash from people on Twitter, who called it “offensive and disrespectful” and asked her, “Are you out of your f-cking mind?”
Comedian and actor Patton Oswalt, tweeted, “Ann Coulter died of prostate cancer in 2002. Her Twitter account’s a sentient emu skeleton with a swatch of eyelid skin stretched over it,” and followed it up by adding, “If Ann Coulter’s calling the President a ‘retard’ it means he won/is going to win. She’s our un-pettable Punxsutawney Phil.”
Model Chrissy Teigen tweeted, “not ever shocked by @anncoulter. my bar for her is set so low that it is, ironically, in the depths of hell.” Decemberists frontman Colin Meloy chimed in, “You are a sad, insignificant child. RT @AnnCoulter: I highly approve of Romney’s decision to be kind and gentle to the retard.”
At the end of the debate, voters gave the victory to Obama. No doubt it was the reason for Coulter’s tweet..very poor sport she is….as is most conservatives…I’m just saying.
