Ann Coulter, Breitbart, February 10, 2016
Gov. Chris Christie will always be remembered for the noble service he performed for his country Saturday night. He must have known his campaign wasn’t lighting the world on fire, but he was damned if he was going to stand by and let that pretty-boy mountebank win.
Christie smacked Rubio down at the GOP debate by dramatically exposing the fact that Rubio’s only skill is a weird ability to regurgitate “the memorized 25-second speech that is exactly what his advisers gave him”–as the governor memorably put it.
In a surprising move, Rubio responded by regurgitating the memorized 25-second speech that was exactly what his advisers gave him. And then he did it again three more times.
Three days later, Fox News tried valiantly to salvage the teenage robot’s campaign: It was a hell of a night for Marco Rubio. Of all the people in the U.S., only FOUR people did better in New Hampshire tonight. That’s out of 330 million people in the country! The No. 2 finisher is speaking now–but let’s get back to Rubio’s remarkable and probably unprecedented fifth-place finish in New Hampshire…
Meanwhile, over on MSNBC, Rachel Maddow was agog at the fact that IN THIS COUNTRY, 66 PERCENT OF GOP VOTERS ARE COMFORTABLE WITH BANNING MUSLIM IMMIGRANTS.
Her neurotic repetition of the popularity of Trump’s Muslim ban should be considered an in-kind donation to his campaign. Most people heard it, and thought: “Is that true? Then I’m definitely switching to Trump.”
Even Muslim immigrants were saying, “I probably won’t commit jihad myself, but I know some of the Muslims coming definitely will.”
It’s like importing immigrants with Ebola. We feel bad for them, we know it’s not their fault, but we just can’t let them in. For every 100,000 Muslims we admit, we know that at least a few hundred either plan to engage in terrorism right away or can be persuaded to engage in terrorism later. Another 10,000 will send them money or help them hide.
Trump could probably help himself by saying: “Fine. You don’t want a temporary ban on Muslim immigrants? How about we temporarily suspend all immigration?” Let’s take a breather while we watch what happens to Europe.
Not only would a pause in immigration be wildly popular, but it also would give Trump a jump-start to his promise to be the “greatest jobs president God ever created.”
