Apparently, Ann Coulter thinks that losing her seat on a Delta flight makes her a more sympathetic figure than a 9/11 widow.
Coulter, as you may know, had a Twitter temper tantrum over the weekend when Delta airlines changed her pre-selected seat to another one with less legroom.
Not kicked off -- kicked out of CAREFULLY PRE-BOOKED seat to a less desirable seat, without explanation, apology, etc. https://t.co/b3LGOLlOhW— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) July 16, 2017
Today, for those who care about such things, is Day Four of Coulter’s whinefest. And where else to play the conservative victim than on Fox News?
On this morning’s Fox & Friends, Coulter got more than five friendly minutes to rail about the horrors of losing her seat without apology or explanation and the “snarky and snippy” response from the company.
But something Coulter said indicated she might not have been blameless in the incident:
COULTER: As I was boarding, the ticket agent snatched the ticket out of my hand and said, “No, we’ve given you a different seat.” And I said, “Why?” and she said, “emergency” and I went on to the plane, I took the seat that was originally mine because it was empty. And then no, the seats filled up, a woman came back, the stewardess asked for our tickets and I said, “Well, this was the seat I booked but they moved me to another seat I don’t want.” And she said, “You have to move” and I said, “But why?” And she said, “I don’t know.” And there was not an elderly person, a sickly person, a very tall person. I wasn’t asked and it’s been three days now and Delta still hasn’t given an explanation, much less an apology.
The three Fox & Friends cohosts must have been too choked up with emotion at this tragedy to ask Coulter why she sat in a seat that she had been told not to take.
Perhaps the hosts’ collective grief was also why nobody thought to compare Coulter’s current outrage with her heartless condemnation of 9/11 widows for making “the entire country” “marinate in their exquisite personal agony.”
In a 2006 book, Coulter wrote about the widows:
“These self-obsessed women seem genuinely unaware that 9/11 was an attack on our nation and acted like the terrorist attack only happened to them. They believe the entire country was required to marinate in their exquisite personal agony … These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grief-parrazies. I have never seen people enjoying their husbands’ death so much.”
But Coulter seems to think the loss of a husband in a terrorist attack is nothing compared to her loss of a seat on an airplane.
Watch Snowflake Coulter talk about her ordeal below, from the July 18, 2017 Fox & Friends.
The first was her cranky behavior in Berkeley, when she was fraudulently booked for an appearance and refused to acknowledge that the campus was trying to fix the problem by offering her a legitimate venue on a more appropriate date and time. Her response was to demand that the campus and students cancel another event to make room for her – something that was never going to happen, as she well knew.
This time, she decided that her comfort mattered more than anything else, including the needs of other passengers or the airline.
Same basic perspective and same basic problem. Unfortunate for everyone else.
She’s lost hundreds of followers throughout the years. They are tired of her whining. Read the comments on conservative websites. They are brutal.
NOTE TO ANNIE
Nag, nag, nag….who would want to sit next to a bitter, childless, spinster like yourself? We would take the next flight rather than sit next to you. No wonder you can’t keep a man in your life, except for Hannity. He tolerates you. He drags you to Talkers seminar in New York City, and to other events like a piece of property. You are an embarrassment to your late mother.
