Should Ann Coulter Be US Ambassador To The UN?
Historian and President Donald Trump biographer Conrad Black believes that Ann Coulter should be the next United States ambassador to the United Nations, replacing Nikki Haley.
That would be a dream realized for many Deplorables, and it would provide President Trump with a closely-aligned policy ally in a position that has lacked one since President Trump took office in January 2017.
With that laborious prologue, I suggest that the next U.S. ambassador should be Ann Coulter. Her political views, unlike Ambassador Haley’s, have long been supportive of Trump, and although the president has overlooked some of Haley’s previous jibes at him when he was a candidate (she supported Marco Rubio for the nomination), Coulter would have a lot more preemptive sympathy in the White House.
The United Nations is largely a debating chamber, and this is a field where Coulter has been very accomplished for many years. She is accustomed to being vastly outnumbered by mocking opponents of her unapologetic conservative views and would not be fazed in the slightest by the opposition of most of the 193 other countries in the United Nations. (It must be said that Haley has fought her corner very effectively also, though she does not have Coulter’s flare and oratorical virtuosity.)
It would be a joy, and very entertaining as well, to see Ann Coulter disposing of America’s critics in her magnificently flamboyant and witty manner, as she tosses her long blond hair, and in a patrician voice that recalls, though it is more sonorous, the principal author of the widely ignored United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Eleanor Roosevelt.
I always thought it was regrettable (and told him so) that William F. Buckley did not accept President Reagan’s offer of the embassy to the United Kingdom, as he would have dazzled the British. Ann Coulter would do the same to the preposterous congeries of the world’s representatives at the United Nations. The office seeks the lady.
Conrad Black’s passage ends
Now that President Trump is getting some credit for effectively ending the Obama administration’s “Child Separation” policy, it is fitting to give credit to Ann Coulter for re-shaping the debate during the heart of the media’s narrative on the subject in June. Coulter made this communicative breakthrough in an unsolicited interview with TMZ.
Coulter’s choice quotes from the interview include:
“They’re being separated from coyotes and drug mules, that has already been proven before.”
“The parents can stay in Mexico. You don’t get to get out of committing crimes in this country because you have a baby. I mean, why don’t we let out Bernie Madoff? His kids suffered. One committed suicide.”
“It’s going to be the END of our country’s history if we let these hordes in. It will never, never stop.”
