During a discussion with Breitbart News editor-in-chief Alex Marlow this Tuesday, right-wing commentator Ann Coulter dismissed the meddling in the 2016 election by Russia, saying that even if it happened, no one should care.
In an audio clip flagged by Right Wing Watch, says that liberals are using the Russia investigation to create conspiracy theories designed to undermine Trump’s presidency.
According to Coulter, Democrats are trying to “nag us to death until we all agree that Russia hacked the DNC.”
“There’s no evidence they did it. If they did it, who cares?” Coulter said. “If they did it, they certainly didn’t do it to help Trump. I mean, it’s preposterous.”
Marlow then turned to the familiar apologist argument that says Russia was doing what any other country would do in its situation.
“Hasn’t Russia always tried to do this?” Markow asked. “We just learned—it just broke on CNN, of all places, this morning—that the Russians also tried to hack conservative think tanks. So, no one cares about—that’s what they do. They’re the Russians.”
Coulter asserted that Russia’s hacking operations are nothing compared to other countries.
“It’s like saying, ‘That’s what they do, they’re the Canadians,'” she said. “They’re pikers compared to China, Israel and Mexico interfering with our elections all the time and moreover, we do it all day long to other countries.”
