"Patriot" Ann Coulter thinks you’re stupid if you believe in the validity of the 14th Amendment and due process.
On Tuesday night, Bill O’Reilly was – yes, I admit it – the voice of reason in an interview with Donald Trump as they discussed Trump’s plan for mass deportations of immigrants and nullifying the 14th Amendment.
BOR: That’s not gonna happen and because the 14th Amendment says if you’re born here, you’re an American and you can’t kick Americans out. And then if you wanted to deport the people already here, each and every one are entitled to due process and it would take decades to do that and gazillions of dollars and the courts would block you at every turn. You must know all that.
Newly minted constitutional scholar Trump announced that O’Reilly was wrong.
"You want me to quote you the Amendment? If you were born here, you’re an American. Period! Period!" O'Reilly exclaimed.
Later, O’Reilly said, “Do you envision federal police kicking in the doors in barrios around the country, dragging families out and putting them on a bus? Do you envision that?”
Yes, Trump does. “I don’t think they have American citizenship. …We have to start a process where we take back our country," Trump said.
O'Reilly suggested Trump test out his theory by filing a court case “tomorrow.”
"That’s going to happen, Bill," Trump assured.
Self-styled patriot - who calls liberals "traitors" - and Christian Ann Coulter
Notice that the two tweets were only a minute apart? That means that either Coulter didn’t watch the 7:24 interview or that she had already seen it and decided to tweet her “insights” as a validation to her O’Reilly-hating fans.
By the way? If I were Coulter and I had been investigated for voter fraud twice – first voting in Connecticut, then at the wrong address in Florida – while claiming to live in New York and Los Angeles – well, I wouldn’t be calling other people stupid. Just saying.
Watch O’Reilly try to talk sense to Trump, below, from the August 18 The O'Reilly.
O’Reilly’s concern is that he be perceived as an expert in these matters, and that his ideas, which “just stick up for the folks” are intended to keep the GOP base from getting distracted by legal challenges that won’t win in court.
O’Reilly isn’t saying that he disagrees about wanting to overturn the 14th. He absolutely does agree that the children of undocumented immigrants shouldn’t be able to be citizens, and that some kind of legislative action should be taken to somehow stop this. O’Reilly just doesn’t think that this will be accomplished by either ignoring or somehow abolishing the 14th. So O’Reilly isn’t concerned about the naked bigotry here – just that he doesn’t want to waste his time on a legal challenge that won’t get him what he wants.
O’Reilly’s other concern, which is probably larger than the first, is that he really does not like it when another right winger calls him out on this stuff. So when Andrea Tantaros foolishly challenged him, he made certain to publicly chastise her on his show. He wasn’t angry with her for her position on this issue – he told her he agreed with her. He was angry that she’d publicly said he “was wrong”. And that’s a line you don’t cross with O’Reilly.

We are waiting for Billy to invite Annie on his show to explain herself.
As to its transgender status, there’s long been speculation that is the case but the trans community doesn’t currently consider Ann to be one of their own (and the trans community really hates the derogatory appellation, “mAnn Coulter”).
My own personal feeling is that I’ve never seen its long-form birth certificate and I have no evidence that it wasn’t born genetic male but suffers some disorder that prevented the usual male physical characteristics from developing. As I have no evidence confirming Ann’s actual gender, I use “it” to refer to Ann except when I use the creature’s name; oh—you may have noticed, I tend to use “creature” rather than anything that would suggest at even the slightest hint of human qualities (I’ve seen enough nature shows on snakes, sharks and crocodiles to see more traces of humanity among those animals than I’ve ever seen in Coulter). I also have no actual evidence that Ann was actually born, instead of hatched or spontaneously generated from a pile of manure (the latter, of course, was disproven as a form of biological generation centuries ago; Coulter could be the “missing link” as it were).
I had other words and terms to describe Anne, but I won’t use them here.
