Coulter defends Trump for setting Internet ablaze with word describing Cruz; ‘punchier than sissy or wuss’

At a campaign event Monday night, Donald Trump, repeating a supporter’s assessment, basically called Sen. Ted Cruz “a pussy.”

Trump brought up the use of enhanced interrogation methods on suspected terrorists — a practice used during the George W. Bush administration but discontinued under President Obama.

“They asked Ted Cruz, ‘What do you think of waterboarding? Is it OK?’ And honestly, I thought he’d say ‘absolutely’ and he didn’t,” Trump told the gathering. “He said, ‘well…’ You know he’s concerned about the answer. Some people—.”

At that point, Trump was interrupted by a woman in the crowd shouting what she felt about Cruz’s refusal to support waterboarding.

“She just said a terrible thing,” Trump said. “You know what she said? Shout it out because I don’t want to say.”

“You’re not allowed to say and I never expect to hear that from you again,” Trump said. “She said he’s a pussy.”

Watch the clip of the exchange.

Trump’s remark got the unconditional support of conservative author, pundit and columnist Ann Coulter, who tweeted:

Coulter and Trump fans alike agreed:

But alas, others thought it unbecoming of a presidential candidate.

Fox News contributor Lt. Col. Ralph Peters got banned by the cable news network for a short period for using the term to describe Obama. Too bad Colter wasn’t around to defend him at the time.
