Trump surrogate Ann Coulter published a series of tweets on Thursday fat shaming street protesters who continue to reject the results of the 2016 presidential election. Since Trump’s victory, protests have taken place in cities and on campuses across the country, some with flashes of violence. In Portland, about 4,000 protesters convened, shouting, “we reject the president-elect” and vandalizing cars and buildings. Police responded with pepper spray and flash banging devices. And in Oakland, California, a few protesters hurled Molotov cocktails, rocks and fireworks at police, injuring three.
The Republican pundit called out several protesters and argued that “Democrats don’t have any other strategy left after they were ridiculously beaten during the presidential election; so much so that they’ve had to resort to sending fat women to protest, hoping that would attract Latin men to join them. You know – because all Latin men love fatty women.” Coulter also tweeted that she hopes “Latin men answer, because Democrats had more than enough embarrassment on election night,” as well as that “there’s no need for overkill at this point – let’s support their attempts to fight back even after the catastrophe they survived.”
“I mean, if I was a Democrat in America today, I’d be apprehensive about leaving the house to go to the supermarket, let alone going out to protest against the best thing that’s happened to this country in the last 8 years,” the conservative author told Fox News in an interview. “And I can only imagine how Hillary Clinton must be feeling right now; I don’t feel sorry for her, but I do sympathize on some micro-significant level. I have to, she’s been through really a lot. I mean, first she lost the presidential election – twice in a row, I might add – and then she has to witness her party hiring fat women to protest and draw out bigger crowds of Latin men. I guess it’s true what they say about bad luck – when it rains, it really pours, doesn’t it?”
She continued, “But, on the other hand – it can’t really be that bad, can it? For fat Latin women, I mean? Because, when you think about it rationally, in fact, they’re the only ones who are going to benefit from all this. On one hand, they’re getting paid by one party to go out and protest against the candidate from the other party, so there’s that. Then, all that time spent outdoors and running around, playing tag with the police, that’s really going to help them lose a bit of weight, which is a good thing. And thirdly – their reputation in the Latin communities must be on the rise, because everybody is going to want to get with them now that they’re famous.”
“As far as they’re concerned, it’s a win-win situation,” Coulter argued. “And in reality, the fact that I’m putting them under the spotlight – what many are referring to as ‘fat shaming,’ which isn’t true, but nonetheless – I’m actually helping them change their lives. They’ll be remembered as the protesters who weren’t afraid of the police or Donald Trump. And who knows – maybe they’ll be rewarded for their efforts by a free liposuction or something. There are a lot of Latin plastic surgeons in America today, so anything’s possible. God only knows they could use it,” she concluded.
