‘Wow’: Santorum Blasts Coulter for Tweet About ‘F***ing Jews’

santorum coulterRick Santorum had some pretty tough words for Ann Coulter today about her controversial debate tweet last night.

Coulter was frustrated with all the Republicans talking about supporting Israel at the debate, and so she tweeted, “How many f—ing Jews do these people think there are in the United States?”

That tweet got pretty roundly hammered, even on the right, and Coulter largely dismissed the criticism.

Newsmax TV’s Steve Malzberg asked Santorum today for his reaction. When he first read the tweet, all Santorum could say is “Wow.”

He said there are plenty of Christians in the United States concerned about Israel and said pundits like Coulter are in the game to be controversial without actually being “helpful to the cause they say they believe in.”

“Every conservative,” he added, “has a right to look at that and say that this is something that doesn’t understand the significant of that [U.S.-Israel] relationship.”
