Coulter’s controversial tweet came in response to the third and final presidential debate, praising Romney for his “decision to be kind and gentle to the retard,” i.e., the president.
The remark garnered the expected criticism from liberal Twitter users and celebrities, including Christina Applegate, but outspoken conservative Malkin also joined the choir: “@AnnCoulter calls President Obama a ‘retard.’ What a stupid, shallow thing to say, Ann,” she tweeted.
Malkin’s website Twitchy also went after Coulter for the tweet, headlining an article “Groan: Ann Coulter calls President Obama a ‘retard’” and emphasizing within the text that, even though she is a conservative, “she sure doesn’t speak for us.”
