Coulter Disses Ramaswamy on His Own Podcast

“You are so bright and articulate — and I guess I can call you “articulate” since you’re not an American Black. Can’t say that about them, that’s derogatory,” she sneered, before turning her venom towards his own skin color. … I agreed with many, many things you said during — in fact, probably more than most other candidates when you were running for president, but I still would not have voted for you because you’re an Indian.”

— Abhorrent Republican racist Ann Coulter, to Vivek Ramaswamy on his own podcast.

More Republicans Thought DeSantis Won First Debate

29%

A new Washington Post/FiveThirtyEight/Ipsos poll finds 29% of debate viewers thought Gov. Ron DeSantis came out on top, followed by Vivek Ramaswamy at 26%, Nikki Haley at 15% and Mike Pence at 7%. “The findings may be surprising because DeSantis generally stayed above the fray in a raucous debate, though Ramaswamy received and delivered lots of barbs.”

Everyone Hates Vivek

“Everyone hates Vivek. That was the biggest takeaway from the Fox News debate on Wednesday night. And who can blame them?” … “Out of the gate, he looked pompous and oleaginous, with what can only be described as a smarmy, shit-eating grin that belied his sharp elbows. Regarding the slickness, Christie observed that he sounded ‘like ChatGPT.’ And regarding the elbows, at one point, even Sen. Tim Scott—you know, the optimistic guy who has a reputation for being too nice—even accused him of ‘being childish.’”
