Like a boss! Ann Coulter takes on 3-lib panel, Maher’s whole audience, without breaking a sweat

Conservative author and columnist Ann Coulter went into the lions’ den Friday night when she debated HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher and two liberal guests on the issue of illegal immigration.

“You got to give it to her, she ain’t afraid,” Maher admitted at one point.

Maher began by challenging Coulter’s estimate in her book, “Adios, America!,” that there are actually 30 million immigrants living in the United States illegally, rather than the 12 million cited by the U.S. Census Bureau.

Coulter responded that a 2005 Bear Stearns report estimated 20 million illegal immigrants, and that her “30 million estimate is a very low estimate” for 2015.

Things really heated up when Maher’s other guests, U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill. and MSNBC host Joy Reid entered the fray.

“Thirty million, 12 million — I would just say one thing, worry abut the 50 million Latinos in the United States of America that are here legally,” Gutierrez began.

“Because many of the people that you refer to as murderers, and rapists, and criminals, and people that are on welfare are their aunts, their uncles, their classmates,” he said. “These are people they care about.”

He capped it off with, “So what I think that Ann Coulter is actually doing, along with Donald Trump, they are just revving up a Latino registration machine.”

Reid jumped in with an implication that Coulter was playing fast and loose with the truth..

“I think that one of the things we have to do is stop lying,” she began.

The debate soon degenerated into a free-for-all, with everyone talking over one another.

“We’re not going to talk over each other!” Maher finally said. “It’s not what we do on this show!”
