ANN COULTER ACCEPTS PAUL RYAN’S CHALLENGE TO DEBATE MARCO RUBIO’S AMNESTY BILL
On Friday’s program of the Howie Carr radio show, conservative icon and best-selling author Ann Coulter announced that she will accept
Rep. Paul Ryan’s challenge to debate the Obama-Rubio mass amnesty plan.
In 2013, Paul Ryan declared, “I will debate anybody who tries to suggest that these ideas that are moving through Congress [the ‘Gang of Eight’ plan] are amnesty.” That pledge is still featured on his website to this day.
“You’ve got to get a call into his office and tell him I’ll debate him,” Coulter told Howie Carr. “Seriously, put in a call to his office. We’ll do it on your radio [show].”
Coulter suggested she wouldn’t have a hard time taking on Ryan. “Did anybody else see his debate with Biden?” she asked.
Indeed, Paul Ryan became the subject of ridicule after his 2012 Vice Presidential debate with Joe Biden. As The Guardian wrote at the time, “Joe Biden’s alpha-male display leaves Paul Ryan overwhelmed in VP debate… On more than one occasion, the Republican candidate visibly gulped.”
Coulter suggested that Paul Ryan’s visible anxiety throughout his performance should disqualify him from running for Speaker of the House. “If you’re losing a debate to Joe Biden, maybe you are not [the Republican Party’s] best spokesman,” she declared.
