Ann Coulter: God Punishing Houston for Lesbian Mayor ‘More Credible’ Cause of Hurricane Than Climate Change
As the death toll and property damage in Texas continues to rise, conservative pundit Ann Coulter claims it all may be a part of “God’s punishment” for the city of Houston electing a lesbian mayor.
The homophobic slight came as a rebuttal to a Politico Magazine article titled, “Harvey Is What Climate Change Looks Like,” and the woman Coulter references is Houston’s first openly lesbian mayor, Annise Parker, who served till last year.
I don’t believe Hurricane Harvey is God’s punishment for Houston electing a lesbian mayor. But that is more credible than “climate change.” https://t.co/K7d7mopY5Q

The forces of Twitter did not take well to Coulter’s callous remark, as users united to drag the conservative pundit on the social media site:

This latest tweet is just one of Coulter’s many anti-LGBT comments, as she has claimed “homosexual behavior” should be “discouraged” as a public health risk and also said “[gay] marriage is not a civil right.”
