However, the internet viciously turned on the conservative pundit after she seemingly tried to defend Alabama senatorial candidate Roy Moore by bringing up a totally unrelated sex scandal involving John F. Kennedy. We wish we were kidding.
As we previously reported, the controversial GOP candidate has been accused of sexual misconduct as he allegedly initiated a sexual encounter with a woman, named Leigh Corfman, back when she was only 14. Three other women have detailed similar encounters with Moore, all occurring “when they were between the ages of 16 and 18 and he was in his early 30s.”
In an attempt to distract from this scandal, Coulter brought up an allegation where a 49-year-old JFK seduced a 19-year-old White House intern, named Mimi Alford. Ann wrote:
We’re not sure how this is a “gotcha” moment. While an affair is certainly scandalous, the politician in question is long dead and not currently in a position of power. Not to mention, the tweet suggests that being outraged about sexual misconduct is a partisan issue.
Thankfully, Twitter has since clapped back at Coulter’s beyond ridiculous defense. Be sure to see the best reactions for yourself (below).
Just to be clear: are you still out here trying to justify a then-32-year-old Roy Moore├óΓé¼Γäós sexual predation against a 14-year-old? https://t.co/6auZoqJ5sS

Hey Dems! Deep within my soul, crippling insecurity and self-loathing create a caustic bile that I spew outward via abhorrent behavior because holding it in would be too much to bear! https://t.co/YK0HCGjIuD
