Ann Coulter: Syrian President Assad Is ‘One Of The Better Leaders’ In The Middle East

As much as Ann Coulter dearly loves Donald Trump, she’s not exactly thrilled with his decision to launch cruise missiles at Syria last week.

Appearing on Tucker Carlson’s show Wednesday evening, Coulter said she was disappointed Trump had chosen the path of “starting pointless wars.”

Coulter doubled down on the theme with her daily column, writing:

“If voters wanted more Middle Eastern wars, there were plenty of other candidates offering that: Marco Rubio, Lindsey Graham, Carly Fiorina and Hillary Clinton, for example…But we picked Trump.”

To be perfectly honest, Ann, you and your stupid minions who voted for Trump managed to pick a person who is not only completely ignorant but also loves to change his mind on a whim. Oh, and it also appears you had lots of help from Russian president/mass murderer/terrorist Vladimir Putin.

While she was at it, Coulter also sought to praise Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, telling Carlson:

“For that region of the world, Assad is one of the better leaders…he’s not even like a Sadaam Hussein murderous thug.”

Once again, that was echoed in her mindless column, where she noted:

“Assad is one of the least bad leaders in the entire Middle East. He’s not a murderous thug like Saddam, has no rape rooms, isn’t into jihad, protects Christians and is fighting ISIS. He provided us with intelligence on al-Qaida after 9/11. He does not have crazy Islamic police slapping women around or throwing gays off buildings. (That would be our beloved ally, Saudi Arabia.)

“Trump was also correct about Assad’s opponents being far worse, containing large helpings of both ISIS and al-Qaida.”

Yeah, Assad only drops barrel bombs on civilian populations and unleashes sarin nerve gas on women and children. What a great guy! Maybe we can invite him to the White House for a state dinner and give him some kind of award, Ann!

The right-wing idiots who support Trump will go to any lengths, contort themselves into any pretzel-like form, and even embrace mass murderers such as Assad and Putin in defense of their lord and savior, Donald Con Man. It’s not only disgusting, it’s a threat to American national security.
