Ann Coulter once again proved how much she hates America. Despite her own record as a two-time voter fraud suspect, Coulter suggested the real criminal is Hillary Clinton for having vigorously represented a rapist when she served as his court-appointed attorney. As our legal system directs. Then Coulter announced that the exonerated Central Park Five are unquestionably guilty and “savage rapists.”
Host Sean Hannity ate up every word. In a Hannity segment that was reminiscent of the 1990 Obama race tape “bombshell,” Hannity was agog over this even older Clinton rape tape.
The heart of this particular “scandal” is that Hillary Clinton was caught on tape suggesting that a man she defended, accused of raping a 12 year-old girl – and for whom she obtained a lenient plea deal - was guilty.
Robust representation of all defendants is at the very heart of our American justice system – a vital part of American exceptionalism, if you will. Yet, as Media Matters notes, conservatives are undermining our system in order to use this as a smear.
Coulter is an attorney herself. But she declared, “I think this is a pretty serious matter.” She called Clinton’s perfectly appropriate and entirely ethical representation “legal trickery to perpetrate injustices on the weak and the powerless.”
Then, for further smear power, Coulter added, “I don’t know any lawyers who have defended criminals. I mean, personally.”
Really? What about Marcos Jimenez, who represented Coulter in one of her two voter fraud cases? His firm’s own website says he specializes in, among other areas, criminal defense. Furthermore, Coulter’s own website says she “handled crime and immigration issues for Senator Spencer Abraham of Michigan” Did she never meet any criminal defense lawyers then? Or anyone who went on to become a criminal defense lawyer?
“You have to reach out to take these cases,” Coulter said dubiously about Clinton. According to Media Matters, Newsday reported that Clinton was appointed to the case as part of her work for a law clinic.
Nevertheless, Coulter claimed that this trumped-up scandal is “bigger than Benghazi.”
“I never want to hear about the Republican war on women anymore,” the oh-so-sensitive Coulter announced.
Apparently, she was on a real sensitivity bender. Apropos of nothing regarding Hillary Clinton, Coulter brought up the case of the Central Park Five. They’re the five African American men wrongly convicted of raping the “Central Park jogger” who recently settled with New York City for $40 million after serving lengthy prison sentences.
The New Yorker explains how the five were exonerated:
One of them, Kharey Wise, who at sixteen was the oldest and sentenced as an adult, was still there when, eleven years after the rape in the park, he happened to cross paths with a prisoner named Matias Reyes. It occurred to Reyes that it was his fault that Wise was there. He confessed that he, and he alone, had raped and beaten Meili, as he had raped other women over the years. He described to police how he had tied her with her clothes; it had been part of his M.O. in other cases, something that gave credibility to his confession. It moved beyond a doubt when a DNA test matched Reyes to the semen found on Meili’s body. The DNA hadn’t matched any of the teen-agers—one of the many details that got blinked over in the trial. They were exonerated twelve years ago, and the charges were formally dropped.
But “patriot” Coulter once again showed her contempt for our justice system. She disregarded its findings and announced:
Just this week, New York taxpayers spending $40 million to pay off five savage rapists from Central Park. …There’s no question that these five are guilty.
Why? Because they were in Central Park at night while black and Latino?
Not surprisingly, host Sean Hannity – the cable news host with probably the world’s largest collection of bigoted friends – didn’t question how Coulter “knows.”

Her actions during and after the 1975 rape case speaks clearly about what kind of a person she is.
A 12 year old rape victim was hurt twice.
The first time by the rapist.
The second time by Hillary in court.
That victim is scarred to this day by both people.
Shame on Hillary Clinton, a woman who claims to be a protector of woman’s rights, yet she sticks by a husband who has a history of sexually violating women.
Hillary is a phony.
She is also a lot of other things, none of which are good.

Richard, the Central Park 5 is probably laughing at this aging spinster. No one takes Annie seriously, except for the love of her life, Hannocchio.
There’s more to their relationship than they let on. Here’s a secret: He controls her.
