Ann Coulter Responds To Outrage After Calling President Obama 'R-Word'

Ann Coulter sparked national outrage for calling President Obama a “retard.” Now, she’s defending her remarks in an INSIDE EDITION exclusive. 

Ann Coulter is at it again—causing outrage across the country for something she tweeted during the debate Monday night.

“I highly approve of Romney's decision to be kind and gentle to the retard," she tweeted.

Coulter defended her remarks in an interview with INSIDE EDITION’s Les Trent.

"Ann you got yourself into it again," said Trent.

"Moi? There was a little turmoil after the debate that conservatives thinking Romney should have hit harder, but I thought he was very presidential,” Coulter said.

"I am talking about the word, retard," said Trent.

“Oh please! Not the words," said Coulter.

“Come on!" Trent replied.

“No not, come on. We're going to have to have an entire Encyclopedia Britannica of the words we can't use,” Coulter said.

Coulter, the author of her new book Mugged: Racial Demagoguery From The Seventies To Obama, woke to a firestorm Tuesday. The word she used was so offensive, even her conservative buddies are calling her out.

Fellow conservative firebrand, Michelle Malkin, tweeted: "What a stupid, shallow thing to say, Ann."

“Yeah, that's a surprise. Coming from someone who is my competitor and is constantly complaining about everything I say!" said Coulter.

Trent asked, “You really do not apologize for your use of the word do you?"
"No! Stop taking words out of the English language that we're allowed to use, I can't stand this political correctness!" Coulter replied.
