Liberal women are too fragile and too easily offended to hold political office -- that's the latest pronouncement from ultra-controversial pundit Ann Coulter, who made the comments during an appearance on conservative host Sean Hannity's Fox News program Thursday.
Hannity and Coulter's discussion centered around the heated gun control legislation exchange that took place Thursday between Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas).
After Cruz quoted portions of the Bill of Rights to Feinstein, the senior senator snapped back, saying she's "not a sixth grader."
“It’s fine you want to lecture me on the Constitution," Feinstein continued. "I appreciate it. Just know I’ve been here for a long time. I’ve passed on a number of bills. I’ve studied the Constitution myself. I am reasonably well educated, and I thank you for the lecture.”
Hannity said he felt Cruz, who opposes the legislation Feinstein has authored, was making some very good counterarguments, and Feinstein "got pissed."
Coulter agreed, saying Feinstein and her fellow “I am woman, hear me roar” colleague Hillary Clinton start crying as soon as they get a question they don't like.
“I used to think women just should not be able to vote. Now I think at least liberal women should not be able to hold office,” Coulter said. “Every time you try to have a discussion with them, they become hysterical, they cry, and they want to show pictures of dead children. As if our position is 'we don’t mind a few dead children.' Our position is ‘concealed carry’ would stop these slaughters.”
Coulter has been consistently outspoken on the issue of guns and control in America.
In January, Coulter was criticized for saying gun crime was a "demographic" problem. Also in January, Coulter argued that public records of gun permit holders should not be made available. She then suggested records of women who've had abortion be revealed.
"Why can't we get a record of women who have had abortions?" Coulter asked Hannity at the time. "They get money from Planned Parenthood; they get money from Medicare and Medicaid, much of these are tax subsidies. I think mothers might want to know what other women on their street might be willing to murder a child."
