On Friday, the always controversial Ann Coulter refused to apologize for calling President Barack Obama "the retard" on Twitter.
A determined Piers Morgan tried his best to pull an apology from the defiant Coulter who insisted she had nothing to apologize for since her remark was not directed at the community of mentally disabled individuals who were offended by the tweet. "I was not referring to someone with Down syndrome," said Coulter. "I was referring to the president of the United States."
"I didn't call the president a Down syndrome child," continued Coulter. "I used the word retard the same way people use idiot, cretin, moron and the rest of them which were all once technical terms and I had it with the language police."
Watch the clip and listen to the interview as Coulter explains why the "r-word" is not the same as the "n-word."
