Ann Coulter has stuck her bony foot in her mouth again.
Last Tuesday, on the CNBC show “The Big Idea With Donny Deutsch” commented on former President Bill Clinton’s sexual proclivities, stating that his promiscuity indicates “latent homosexuality”!
Following is a partial transcript from the show. My comments will be in bold and italics:
DEUTSCH: Off the air, you were talking about Bill Clinton. Is there anything you want to say about Clinton? No?
DEUTSCH: OK. All right. Did you find him attractive? Was that what it was?
DEUTSCH: You don’t find him attractive?
COULTER: No. OK, fine, I’ll say it on air.
DEUTSCH: Most women find him attractive.
DEUTSCH: OK, say it on air.
COULTER: I think that sort of rampant promiscuity does show some level of latent homosexuality.
Really, now? Such “rampant promiscuity” simply means the man is a libertine and that he gets horny a lot. Period. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, you know. Coulter obviously knows little about human sexuality if she thinks promiscuous = homosexual. Not all homosexuals are libertines, nor are all libertines homosexual, as I can personally attest.
DEUTSCH: OK, I think you need to say that again. That Bill Clinton, you think on some level, has — is a latent homosexual, is that what you’re saying?
COULTER: Yeah. I mean, not sort of just completely anonymous — I don’t know if you read the Starr report, the rest of us were glued to it, I have many passages memorized. No, there was more plot and dialogue in a porno movie.
Glued to the Starr report? Memorized some passages? Damn, the woman really needs to get a life!
DEUTSCH: I’m not paying any attention. I’m still stuck on Bill Clinton. Don’t — now, isn’t that an example of mean-spirted? Isn’t that just a mean-spirited low blow? No pun intended.
COULTER: No. Which part of what I said?
DEUTSCH: I think this…
COULTER: Well, you can read high crimes and misdemeanors if he wants some low blows.
DEUTSCH: OK. No, no. Here’s a — here’s a president of the United States…
COULTER: There’s merely a comment.
DEUTSCH: …a former president of the United States, and just saying, `You know what? I think he has latent homosexual tendencies.’
COULTER: No. I think anyone with that level of promiscuity where, you know, you — I mean, he didn’t know Monica’s name until their sixth sexual encounter. There is something that is — that is of the bathhouse about that.
Rolling eyes heavenward. Surely she must know that many straight men engage in casual sex and one doesn’t need to go to a “bathhouse” to do so?
DEUTSCH: But what is the homosexual — that’s — you could say somebody who maybe doesn’t celebrate women the way he should or just is that he’s a hound dog?
COULTER: No. It’s just random, is this obsession with his…
DEUTSCH: But where’s the — but where’s the homosexual part of that? I’m — once again, I’m speechless here.
COULTER: It’s reminiscent of a bathhouse. It’s just this obsession with your own — with your own essence.
DEUTSCH: But why is that homosexual? You could say narcissistic.
DEUTSCH: You could say nymphomaniac.
Or you could merely say libertine. It’s like the old saying about women goes, “A slut is simply a woman who has more sex than you do”.
COULTER: Well, there is something narcissistic about homosexuality. Right? Because you’re in love with someone who looks like you. I’m not breaking new territory here, why are you looking at me like that?
Because you’ve gone off the deep end, Annie!
Personally, I think she’s jealous because Bill Clinton has a much easier time getting laid than she does.Thoughts?
