Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has finally said what out loud what many people have been thinking. Speaking this weekend on Fox News, Coulter declared that Obama would have been impeached long ago if he were white, but that being the first-ever black president has given him leeway to flout the law. She made the comments while speaking with Fox News host Jeannine Pirro.
Citing his “alarmingly unconstitutional behavior,” Coulter cited his “disregard of the Obamacare law, disregard of immigration law and disregard of the drug laws” as three main reasons he should be impeached. “He has no role in writing legislation. He’s vetoing legislation by refusing to enforce it. This is the bottom of the slippery slope,” she said. “I think he would be impeached if he weren’t America’s first black president.”
In her ongoing slams of Obama’s policies, she also declared last week that he has behaved in an anti-American manner. “I know we’ve spent seven years trying to persuade right-wingers, no, he really was born in Hawaii, we have his birth certificate, stop with the crazy conspiracy theories. But, let’s just think for a thought experiment for a moment,” she said. “If Obama were born in another country, had no love for this country, and had set out to destroy America, what would he be doing differently? And now let’s get them smoking pot. That’ll be a boon to the economy.
Coulter was referring to Obama allowing states to decide whether marijuana should be legal; Colorado and Washington have since made marijuana legal for adults over 21, while 20 states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana. “It is as if they have legalized retard pills,” she said. “You’ll have a kick, but you won’t be able to accomplish anything in your life, including delivering a newspaper.”
