TBT: Remember When Ann Coulter Starred in Sharknado 3?


As right-wing pundit Ann Coulter makes headlines bashing the man she once worshiped, the Mediaite office fondly remembered that weird time she starred in cinematic classic “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!”

For those who have forgotten, “Sharknado 3” was a comical horror flick released in 2015 that chronicled a dystopian world where great white sharks rained down upon Washington and the rest of the east coast. In the cult favorite, billionaire businessman Mark Cuban and Coulter play the president and vice president respectively. (for many, that idea alone is the scariest part of the film.) The rest of the cast (largely appearing in cameos) includes model and actress Bo Derek, talk show host Jerry Springer, and ‘NSYNC’s Chris Kirkpatrick.

Coulter’s role as vice president includes building “a fence to keep illegals out,” per an interview with Vulture. She also noted that the great white sharks are in “the same category as illegals.”

Additionally, Coulter told The Hollywood Reporter that being an actress was nothing new for her — dragging a moderate conservative in the process, as she has been known to do. “I’ve been acting for years. I always act surprised when Marco Rubio says something stupid,” said Coulter.

Two years later, the controversial pundit’s life has turned into a horror move of its own, as Coulter has exploded with with rage toward Trump after his push to protect DREAMers — the opposite of what candidate Trump promised he would do. Earlier today, she offered up perhaps the ultimate anti-Trump burn, telling Mediaite that the president himself “is off the Trump Train” after his latest immigration pivot.

Ironically, during the 2016 general election, Coulter published a book titled “In Trump We Trust” — though, the opposite appears to be the case.

It’s almost as if Coulter would rather have an actual sharknado hit Washington than see Trump’s bipartisan immigration reform pass.
