Ann Coulter brushes off ‘socialist stuff’, says she’d vote for Bernie Sanders on one condition

Confusion reigns supreme when the likes of Ann Coulter declares she might vote for Bernie Sanders in the 2020 presidential election.

What?

Worth restating: Conservative Ann Coulter says she would vote for socialist Bernie Sanders.

Did you feel it? Did the earth just shake a bit beneath our feet?

It wasn’t long ago that the image many conservatives had of Coulter was that of a fearless warrior slinging poison-tipped arrows at progressives in the American political jungle.

But as they say, “weird happens” or something like that.

Once a passionate Trump supporter, she has become a loud, vocal critic of the president for not living up to his campaign promise of building a wall at the border with Mexico.

Now Coulter apparently is way down around the extreme left end of the political fulcrum.

She said she could support Sen. Bernie Sanders for president, if only he returned to his old stance on immigration. And she stated she doesn’t care about “the rest of the socialist stuff.”

Margaret Hoover, host of PBS’s Firing Line, interviewed Coulter and asked what she thought of Sanders and whether she would support him if he campaigned on “getting rid of low-skilled workers” to ensure higher wages.

“If he went back to his original position,” Coulter replied, “which is the pro-blue-collar position. I mean, it totally makes sense with him. If he went back to that position, I’d vote for him. I might work for him. I don’t care about the rest of the socialist stuff. Just– can we do something for ordinary Americans?”

In 2007, Sanders co-authored a restrictive immigration amendment with Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley to an immigration reform bill that ultimately failed to pass the Senate.

According to USA Today, Sanders was quoted 12 years ago saying, “At a time when the middle class is shrinking, the last thing we need is to bring – over a period of years – millions of people into this country who are prepared to lower wages for American workers.” He also said America had a “very serious immigration problem” and that “our border is very porous.”

At a recent campaign event, Sanders rejected the idea of having open borders. “What we need is comprehensive immigration reform. If you open the borders, my God, there’s a lot of poverty in this world, and you’re going to have people from all over the world. And I don’t think that’s something that we can do at this point. Can’t do it. So that is not my position,” Sanders said.

Coulter sure sounds like she’s gone full-leftist on us …
