WATCH: Ann Coulter Refuses to Hug Undocumented Immigrant


For her first official interview to promote her newest book, Adios, America, Ann Coulter decided to sit down with Jorge Ramos for a town hall-style interview that include what has to be one of her all-time most awkward TV moments.

At one point, immigration activist Gaby Pacheco stood up and asked if she could give Coulter a hug. After the conservative pundit laughed and said she was recovering from “the worst flu” she’s ever had, Pacheco did not back down, saying that she still wanted the hug “as a sign of my humanity and yours.”

“No, let’s get on with the question,” Coulter replied, shutting that whole thing down for good. Pacheco did move on to her next question, but not before noting that in the same scenario she did received a hug from Arizona’s Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

During the same interview, Ramos confronted Coulter about her belief that Americans should “fear immigrants” from Mexico “more than ISIS.”

“I have a little tip,” Coulter told him. “If you don’t want to be killed by ISIS, don’t go to Syria. If you don’t want to be killed by a Mexican, there’s nothing I can tell you.”

Pressed by Ramos to explain the basis of her argument, Coulter said that “there are cultures that are obviously deficient” and that if that were not the case the host would never to immigrated to America.

“America is the best in the world, and we are about to lose it,” she warned. “Everyone who lives here is going to lose that.”
