Full Name: Ann Hart Coulter
Born: Dec. 8, 1961 in New York City, New York

Ann Coulter is a right-wing social and political commentator, syndicated columnist and best-selling author known for her extremist and often outrageous views and sensationalism.

Coulter’s father was an FBI agent who became a corporate attorney. Her road to fame began in the 1990s, when she was an outspoken critic of the Clinton administration. She later supported George W. Bush and many of his actions and policies, including the Patriot Act, torture and the use of drones to murder U.S. citizens.

Coulter has even defended Senator Joe McCarthy, claiming he was the subject of a witch-hunt. Coulter was quick to blame the 9/11 “terrorist” attacks on Muslim. Shortly after 9/11, she wrote,

We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren’t punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That’s war. And this is war.
