Ann Coulter Tweets: ‘Did Hillary Clinton Have Bernie Sanders Supporters ‘Gassed’?

— Conservative political pundit Ann Coulter has come under fire on social media for tweeting after Hillary Clinton was nominated as the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee, “Where are the Bernie supporters tonight? Did Hillary have them gassed?”

Coulter was slammed for apparently referring to the Holocaust in the Twitter post on Tuesday night during the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

“What a disgusting tweet. I didn’t survive 57 gassings in Dachau only to face this virulent anti-semitism in 2016,” was one reply.

“Deliberate choice of words. Antisemitism gets the sick attention this narcissist seeks,” was another.

Coulter is no stranger to anti-Semitic controversy.

During a Republican debate last September, Coulter tweeted “how many f***|ing Jews do these people think there are in the United States?” She later doubled down on the tweet, calling it “pro-Semitic.”

Donald Trump also waded into controversy when he retweeted a message from a white supremacist group that had also created an image of Trump sending Sanders to a concentration camp gas chamber.
