Piers Morgan to Coulter: Would You Ever Date a Liberal? What About Bill Maher?

Ann Coulter sat down with Piers Morgan on Thursday night, and amidst all the political talk, Morgan actually asked Coulter about… romance. Yes, Morgan actually asked Coulter if she would ever date a liberal, and singled out late night host Bill Maher in particular.

Coulter just laughed and said, “If you were interviewing Margaret Thatcher, would you ask her that? No, I think not!”

When he pressed it further, she said, “I am not discussing who I would date!”

Coulter also pushed back against some of what Maher said on Morgan’s show this week about Republicans being power-obsessed, arguing the Democrats are worse because “they enforce party discipline like an old communist cell,” and if Republicans were smart, they’d target vulnerable Democrats instead of “slightly impure” Republicans.

Morgan also made Coulter squirm as he played video of Maher joking that Dick Cheney is “the illegitimate father of Ann Coulter.” Coulter decided to play things more seriously, saying she generally liked Cheney’s policies, contrasting Iraq and Afghanistan with how much of a fiasco Syria would have been.

Coulter also defended Ted Cruz from Morgan blaming him for the government shutdown, saying the GOP was willing to compromise all along, and the fact that Obamacare has turned into a trainwreck means their strategy has “been quite well-vindicated.”
