Fox News’ Sean Hannity wondered if she was just trying to create controversy, but Ann Coulter insisted that when she said that Russia’s Vladimir Putin was making a “monkey” of Obama, that she meant it; Putin was playing Obama for a fool.
The conservative firebrand author appeared on Hannity’s Fox cable show on Monday, Sept. 9 to talk about how much of a disaster Obama’s foreign policy has been. Obama is “confused” and “wimpy” Coulter said. Then she broke out the “m” word, if you will.
Putin, Coulter said, is doing his best to “make Obama look like a monkey.”
After explaining that she means Putin is making Obama look foolish, she said it’s “not looking good for Obama.”
“These Democrats think being president is a Hollywood movie,” Coulter said. “If they just come out and say it is in America’s national security interest, Americans will all swoon like they do in ‘The West Wing’ when Aaron Sorkin is writing it.”
Interesting. Did Vladimir Putin Bait a Trap for the United States in Damascus? http://t.co/95nVKkbtro

Coulter went on:
“But it’s not that way in real life, Americans have a vague grasp of what our national security is which is why they supported the war in Iraq and they do not support this nonsense. I just tweeted out as Putin in particular, no, he is making a monkey of Obama. I just tweeted out a very interesting article from the tablet suggesting that this whole thing was set up by Putin to make Obama look like a monkey. I mean, he controls Assad. Assad is his puppet.”
“Obama issues a red line ultimatum thinking, well, of course, Assad is never going to use chemical weapons. Why would he? This is just my way of announcing we are not interested in the Syrian civil war. So Putin puts pressure on Assad or simply places a phone call and says, Hey, why don’t you use some chemical weapons. Then the ultimatum has been met.”
“And now you have Kerry doing the same thing, thinking he’s setting up a situation, an ultimatum that would never come to pass,” Coulter added. ‘Why not just turn over their chemical weapons’ and Putin and Assad leap forward and say, ‘OK, we’ll do that’ and now they are stuck with that?”
Is she right? Is Obama looking the fool, here?
