Conservative author and columnist Ann Coulter took some jabs at a few Republicans, calling them hucksters and shysters, while promoting her book on Fox News’ “Hannity.”
“We’ve lost a lot of Senate elections,” Coulter said on Monday’s show. “This is not a party that seems overly concerned with winning elections.”
The Republican Party has candidates who run for their own egos or to make money, Coulter said naming Todd Akin, Newt Gingrich, Liz Cheney, Mark Sanford in that category, and several GOP consultants as examples. She admitted she had made mistakes supporting some of those candidates in the past.
Hannity said Coulter’s biggest mistake was supporting New Jersey’s Republican Gov. Chris Christie.
“Perhaps it was,” Coulter said, laughing.
Hannity tried to get in another question, but Coulter cut him off.
“We are not concentrating on winning,” she said. “We are allowing shysters to take advantage of the Republican Party.”
Hannity criticized the lack of principle from some GOP candidates who ran on repealing Obamacare but are not following through with any action.
