Coulter: Nikki Haley ‘Is an Immigrant and Does Not Understand America’s History’

coulterLast year, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley dismissed the Confederate flag as an issue for the state to be concerned about. But in the wake of the Charleston church shooting, with renewed attention on what the Confederate flag symbolizes, Haley––flanked by a score of South Carolina legislators––announced that they all support efforts to take down the Confederate flag from the state capitol.

Ann Coulter appeared with Kennedy on Fox Business Network tonight and said that there are a lot of people getting the history of that flag wrong, as well as ignoring the Democrats’ history with the Confederacy, the flag, and African-Americans.

At one point, she said, “I’m appalled by––though, I really like to like Nikki Haley since she is a Republican. On the other hand, she is an immigrant and does not understand America’s history.”

Kennedy asked, “Immigrants can’t understand history?” Coulter responded, “Well, she doesn’t!”

Update- 10:22 pm EST: Kind of an important clarification here, but Haley was actually born in South Carolina. Her parents were immigrants.
