On June 23, both Scarborough Country and Hannity & Colmes gave Ann Coulter -- right-wing pundit and author of Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right and Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism -- plenty of airtime to smear former President Bill Clinton and to smear Americans who do not support President George W. Bush. On Scarborough Country, Coulter compared Clinton to O.J. Simpson, who was tried for murder in 1995, and called Clinton "a pathological liar, a sociopath, and felon." On Hannity & Colmes, Coulter called "all the American people that don't support" President George W. Bush "traitors."
From the June 23 edition of MSNBC's Scarborough Country:
SCARBOROUGH: Isn't [Bill Clinton] lying before a grand jury and in a deposition a crime, Ann Coulter?
COULTER: Yes, of course, but interestingly enough, criminals rarely like the people who prosecute them. At least O.J. had the dignity to shut up about it and isn't out writing books denouncing [chief prosecutor] Marcia Clark.
COULTER: The problem wasn't [Clinton's] policy. It was that he was a pathological liar, a sociopath, and felon.
From the June 23 Hannity & Colmes:
COLMES: Are all the American people that don't support him [President George W. Bush] dumb?
COULTER: No. I think, as I indicated in my last book, they're traitors.
