CHRIS MATTHEWS (HOST): Ann Coulter, you are an expert on this field, why do you think the radio guys like Charlie [Sykes], who is very successful, all the way from Rush Limbaugh, the rest of them, they're all anti-Trump. What is that about? I think Laura Ingraham too, I think they're all anti-Trump. Why is that?
ANN COULTER: I can't speak to them specifically, but what I do notice is just the absence of substance. I keep hearing that, you know, the anti-Trump people "Well, it's because we think more deeply, and we don't fall for this demagoguery." I'm glad you asked for examples, I mean if you want someone who is lying and demagoguing, Ted Cruz goes around saying that today Donald Trump is pro-choice. That is from a quote he gave in 1999, that he took back the next year. He is clearly pro-life now. Ted Cruz goes around saying that Donald Trump is for socialized medicine, and he thinks he wants Bernie Sanders' socialized medicine. Well no, he just said he won't let people die on the street. If that's the new Republican position, it's a shocker to me. And as for your question on abortion, I mean, I know that's a big thing for you. I've been pro-life since high school, and talking and writing about it, I've never thought about it. It's not the job of the president, it's the job -- I mean, if Donald Trump were running for state legislature in the year 2060, after Roe v. Wade is overturned, and happens to be in a state that's going to pass those laws, that's a relevant question. But to be upset about that? I mean, I think I would be more upset that women are gonna get a lot more abortions if we don't close our border with Mexico and bring in all of Latin American rape culture.
