Ann Coulter, conservative columnist, said Friday in an email to Breitbart News that if she ran the immigration system, she wouldn’t “admit overweight girls” into the US.

Coulter’s comments were reportedly made in response to a question about an incident that occurred on Tuesday when Coulter refused to hug an undocumented immigrant during an audience Q&A on the cable network Fusion.

“When I’m in charge of immigration (after our 10 year moratorium), I will not admit overweight girls,” Coulter told Breitbart.

During her appearance on Fusion, Coulter was asked by undocumented Ecuadorian immigrant Gaby Pacheco whether she could give Coulter a hug as “as a sign of my humanity and yours.”

Coulter rejected the request, saying she had a cold and coughing loudly before saying: “Let’s get on with the question.”

Coulter was on the network to promote her book “Adios America.”

    Don’t know how she earns a living anymore. The 24 hour hate cycle came along and just made it impossible to get far enough out ahead of the cycle of hate and fear mongering to write a book what was sufficiently outrageous and reprehensible to sell by the time it got published.

  3. “as a sign of my humanity and yours.”

    Well, then, her refusal says all we need to know about the nonexistence of Captain Madame’s Apple’s humanity" then don’t it?
