Tweet of the Day: Ann Coulter tries to clarify her ‘f**king Jews’ tweet

In language, curses (mild and otherwise) are sometimes used before nouns for emphasis. For example, in “West Side Story,” the following lyric occurs:

Here come the Jets,
Yeah! And we’re gonna beat
Every last f**kin’ gang
On the whole f**kin’ street!

Last night, shortly after the CNN debate ended and shortly before she appeared with Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly to engage in post-debate analysis, conservative commentator Ann Coulter tweeted:

Unsurprisingly, Coulter’s tweet became as big a topic in her exchange with Kelly as the debate itself. “You want to take that back?” Kelly asked at one point in the interview.

Coulter replied:

No, I just tweeted the question – well, actually, I was tweeting all night when all the candidates were pandering, pandering, pandering. I wrote my column about it. They seem to be getting certain boxes: Have to mention Reagan, have to mention that they’re pro-life, have to mention Israel.

The entire Republican Party is pro-Reagan, pro-life, pro-Israel. The last question was: After you’re president, how will America be better? And suddenly, we’re back to Israel again. It’s just this checking off of the boxes, and the virtues boxes and it’s one of the things I like about – in fact, I think they’re probably pandering … to evangelicals, um, not Jews. It’s just pandering, pandering, pandering, something we all agree on is not really separating the candidates.

As T. Becket Adams notes at the Washington Examiner, Coulter further explained, again on Twitter:

I like the Jews, I like fetuses, I like Reagan. Didn’t need to hear applause lines about them all night.

I don’t know about you, but I feel much better now.
