Ann Coulter Weighs In On Rand Paul’s Lewinsky Talk

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Ann Coulter on Tuesday backed Rand Paul with a set of attacks invoking the Monica Lewinsky scandal against Hillary and Bill Clinton.

The right-wing radio host said that Bill Clinton’s actions reflect poorly not only on his wife, but also on liberals in general.

“I think it’s more than limited to just undermining Hillary,” she told CNN’s Piers Morgan. “It’s undermining this entire idea of the Republican War on Women.”

Coulter said it was hypocritical of liberals to criticize Republican policy on women’s issues while defending Hillary against the Lewinsky line of attack in a possible 2016 run.

“And then to turn around and say, ‘Oh, but because you Republicans don’t support abortion rights you hate women?’ Wait a second, can we look at your cast of characters here,” she said after listing names like Eliot Spitzer and Bob Filner.

Coulter then returned to a familiar target — feminists.

“Now the position of the National Organization of Women is you get one free grope and then oh well, if it doesn’t go over well, as long as you back off,” she said. “It does show the utter aggressive hypocrisy and really tyranny of the feminist movement.”

Unlike Karl Rove, who criticized Paul’s strategy on Tuesday, Coulter argued the line of attack wouldn’t backfire on the Kentucky Republican if he also decides to run.
