Ann Coulter Calls Neo-Nazi Trump Backers Harmless in Tweet Storm

Ann Coulter mocked the media for hyping an ‘alt-right’ gathering of neo-Nazis and white supremacists, which she branded as “irrelevant” during a stream of angry Tweets.

The far right media personality downplayed the importance of the racists who spewed anti-Semitic hate at a weekend celebration of Donald Trump’s White House win, saying they had no real ties to Trump or his incoming administration.

She lashed out at the media, taking special aim at MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, for focusing on the white supremacists and their leader Richard Spencer, while ignoring MSNBC host Rev. Al Sharpton and his ties to Democrats.

Coulter also repeated her claims that the white supremacists are harmless, especially compared to Black Lives Matter protesters, whom she accuses of fomenting racial hate against whites.
