Ann Coulter joins Piers Morgan, applauds House Republicans behind the government shutdown

While most Americans would confess to not being particularly big fans of the government shutdown, the always outspoken Ann Coulter joined Piers Morgan Wednesday night, and during their live conversation the author went as far as to applaud the work of the individuals who effectively brought Washington to a screeching halt three weeks ago:

“I really like what these guys have been doing,” Coulter began.

Seemingly in shock, the "Piers Morgan Live" host asked Coulter whom specifically she was targeting with her praise:

Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, the House Republicans. I think the last three weeks have been magnificent,” noted the 51-year-old Conservative political commentator, referring to the last 16 days during which hundreds of thousands of federal employees have been furloughed.

When Morgan tried to argue with his guest, pointing out numerous polls that have shown the average American feels otherwise towards the Republicans, Coulter countered:

“I’m so glad you mentioned that ... this has been driving me absolutely crazy," she said. "These two polls [Gallup, Wall Street Journal] are pure propaganda.”

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with Coulter, and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.

    Has anyone clued into the notion that Ted Cruz cannot be a candidate for President of the United states? He was born in Calgary Alberta, Canada!

      Actually, being a natural-born citizen of the United States does not mean that you've got to be born in the United States. It just means that you must have acquired US citizenship at birth. Cruz's mother was an American, and so, by the Naturalization Act of 1790, he became an American citizen at birth.

    Why are we still paying attention to this lunatic hate-filled double-speaking woman? Stop giving her platforms.. She spews lies and partial truths and spinomatic vitriol constantly for the SOLE PURPOSE OF SELLING HER BOOKS. She is hackling all the way to the bank. Stop. Interviewing. This. Greedy. Spiteful. Lying. Wench.

    To run congress the U.S. taxpayer is paying $123 million per year just for salaries for the 500 + bozos (members) in congress. To run the entire legislative branch is costing the taxpayer over $5,000,000,000.00 ($5 billion) per year.
    It’s got to be, by far, the most expensive circus in the world. All that is missing is their clown suits.

    I watched the interview with Ann Coulter. I found it funny that she wrote a book on how the Republican party needs to win races and in the same breath said she loved Ted Cruz. Oh, and Hilary Clinton is not as popular as people think???? Wow, I turned to a different channel.

    Best comment from Ann. The Dems want to control are lives. The Republicans only want control my daughters reproductive rights, deny adequate health are to millions, prevent gays spousal equal rights under the law, foul the environment for short sided dollars gains, promote ludicrous gun laws, bring christian prayer back to school given the chance. Set up cameras in my bed room , well maybe not that far, but they want to make sure what my lover and I do is up to their morals. And on and on she goes.

Looks to me as if it has turned into FOX/CNN get NEWT GINGRICH OFF OF CNN or I'm going to quit watching it and start watching MICKEY MOUSE channel at least he isn't spewing out republican politics all the dang time.

    I ALWAYS change the channel when Ann Coulter is on!. She is a terrible woman and should NOT be given airtime. I can only think of her outrageous comments about the 9 11 widows. I wonder how she would act if she was one of the 9 11 widows. I turned off CNN last night and again tonight!
