The Fallout From Ann Coulter’s CNBC Interview

Ann Coulter.jpgReaction continues to Ann Coulter‘s remarks Monday night on CNBC’s The Big Idea With Donny Deutsch. Speaking today with Adweek, Deutsch says he is “offended” and “disappointed” by Coulter’s statements. And the National Jewish Democratic Council has an online petition urging all “mainstream media outlets to stop inviting Ann Coulter as a guest commentator/pundit.”

At issue is Coulter’s statement that “We (Christians) just want Jews to be perfected” by becoming Christians, and her expressed belief that the world would be better off without Jews:

Deutsch: We should be Christian? It would be better if we were all Christian?

Coulter: Yes.

Deutsch: We should all be Christian?

Coulter: Yes.

After a few minutes of discussion, Deutsch tossed to a break: “Ann Coulter, author of If Democrats Had Any Brains, They’d Be Republicans…and if Ann Coulter had any brains, she would not say Jews need to be perfected. I’m offended by that personally.”

CNBC.com has video of the interview. A transcript is posted on FoxNews.com.
