Coulter on Haley Endorsing Rubio: She’d Replace Confederates with ‘Bangladeshi Migrants’


As we’ve detailed in this space before, Ann Coulter hates Nikki Haley. She has said Haley “is an immigrant and does not understand America’s history,” joked that Donald Trump should deport her, and repeatedly called her a bimbo.

So Haley’s endorsement of Marco Rubio today naturally got Coulter revved up again:

National Review‘s Jim Geraghty noticed some “carefully worded” dog-whistling in there, which was not reflected in the comments on her tweet:

Notice how frequently “she’s not one of us” or “she’s not from around here” gets thrown at Nikki Haley, usually some subtext of “she’s not American” or “she’s not really American” or “she’s not really Christian”…

Quite the message: It doesn’t matter if you’re born in Bamberg, go to Clemson, live in South Carolina your whole life, build a business, sit on the board of your church, donate $130,000 to charity in one year, have a husband in the Army National Guard who serves in Afghanistan for a year . . . if you dare disagree with someone politically or endorse the wrong guy, some people will still throw “she’s not one of us” crap around.
