Ann Coulter Rips Democrats for Sex Scandals: 'Can We Look at Your Cast of Characters Here?'

On Tuesday night, CNN’s Piers Morgan bemoaned Rand Paul’s “sleazy” attack on Bill Clinton’s promiscuity, but guest Ann Coulter roasted Clinton and other Democrats for their own attacks on women.

“This is all very salacious,” Morgan lamented. “And Rand Paul wants us to think about Hillary and Bill as a doublette in a salacious, slightly sleazy way, right?” he added. “Come on, don't attack the woman through her husband,” he said of Hillary and Bill. [See video below.]

Coulter, meanwhile, opened fire on Democratic abuse of women:

“I mean, it's not just Bill Clinton, though that was spectacular. There's Teddy Kennedy, there’s John Edwards, there’s the San Diego mayor that was just gotten rid of. There's Eliot Spitzer and Anthony Weiner. It goes on and on. Then to turn around and say because you Republicans don't support abortion rights you hate women? Wait a second. Can we look at your cast of characters here?”

Below is a transcript of the segment, which aired on Piers Morgan Live on February 11 at 9:14 p.m. EST:

PIERS MORGAN: Now, that's a very deliberate, calculated position that Rand Paul is taking to say, right, I'm going to muddy the waters for Hillary Clinton now for the next two years by banging on and on and on about bill, Monica Lewinsky and that kind of thing. Is it a clever tactic? 

ANN COULTER: Oh absolutely. And I think it's more than limited to just undermining Hillary. It's undermining this entire idea of the Republican war on women. I mean, it's not just Bill Clinton, though that was spectacular. There's Teddy Kennedy, there’s John Edwards, there’s the San Diego mayor that was just gotten rid of. There's Eliot Spitzer and Anthony Weiner. It goes on and on. Then to turn around and say because you Republicans don't support abortion rights you hate women? Wait a second. Can we look at your cast of characters here?

And moreover what I think is particularly revealing and thought so at the time about what Hillary Clinton and a lot of these feminists had to say about Bill Clinton, at the time Gloria Steinem wrote an op-ed piece in the New York Times defending Bill Clinton for molesting Monica Lewinsky, on the grounds that -- sorry the Paula Jones case. Because when he dropped his pants and said “kiss it" in a hotel room, a smooth Carey grant move, he took no for an answer. So now the position of the National Organization of Women is you get one free grope then oh well, if it doesn't go over well, as long as you back off. 

MORGAN: This is all very salacious. And this is what Rand Paul wants us to be thinking. And Rand Paul wants us to think about Hillary and Bill as a doublette in a salacious, slightly sleazy way, right? I just wonder if the American people really want to go over all this. Bill Clinton's ratings have never been more popular. They all seem to have moved on. Could it not backfire for Rand Paul? Come on, don't attack the woman through her husband.
