Conservative pundit Ann Coulter appeared on Hannity on Monday night, and while there she dropped a bombshell about the 2016 presidential election that nobody saw coming.
During the interview, Coulter slammed the Republicans running for president in 2016, saying that she’s “sick of fighting for losing causes” and that all the GOP candidates except for Scott Walker are “idiots.”
Skip to the 6:49 mark in the video above to see Hannity ask Coulter who she would like to see become president in 2016. Her answer left the Fox host stunned.
“I would like Mitt Romney with Scott Walker as his vice president,” she said confidently, according to the Daily Caller.
“He’s not running. Keep going,” Hannity replied. “He won’t jump back in.”
“I think he’s going to jump back in when people realize — the only possible candidate who isn’t a joke right now is Scott Walker, and I would rather have Mitt Romney answering questions about the fed and trade with China, and you’ll see,” Coulter said. “Ann’s going to be right. You’ll apologize.”
“You’re going to be wrong,” Hannity told Coulter. “I will bet you any amount of money he’s not getting in.”
“We’ll see,” Coulter retorted.
“Is that — you’re living in the past that much?” Hannity asked.
“I think Republican primary voters will realize, oh my gosh, we were lied to by idiots who said they were speaking on our behalf,” Coulter continued. “Mitt Romney not only the most articulate but the conservative candidate we ever had. I love Scott Walker, but I would really prefer for him to be Mitt Romney’s vice president for a few years.”
“Alright, so you’re not going to get your way,” Hannity told Coulter. “You are going support whoever the nominee is.”
“If it’s Scott Walker,” Coulter said.
“What if it’s somebody else?” Hannity followed up.
“I’ll take a long vacation,” Coulter responded.
“You’re that rigid now?” a shocked Hannity asked.
“It’s not that I’m that rigid. I’m sick for fighting for losing causes,” Coulter said. “If it’s not Scott Walker or Mitt Romney, I think we lose and welcome President Hillary [Clinton].”
“I don’t think she’s going to win,” Hannity said. “Not this time.”
“Well, as long as we run Mitt Romney with Scott Walker,” Coulter concluded.
