Conservative political commentator Ann Coulter appeared on “The View” Friday, where she talked about Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and took on "The View" co-host Raven-Symoné, who has recently come under fire for saying she discriminates against people with “black”-sounding names. Coulter, who is no stranger to controversy herself, did not pass up the chance to defend herself and insult Raven-Symoné.

After Coulter called herself a “settler” and made a comment about immigrants, Raven-Symoné asked Coulter why she could not stop herself from saying offensive things, according to Vulture. "Why do you think it's important to mudsling?” Raven-Symoné said. Coulter countered by saying that her comments were more important than those "The View" panelist made because they were focused on politics.

“Well, I’m at least talking about policy. You have a position on what people’s names should be — Watermelandrea. You’ll insult people for their names,” Coulter said. “I’m talking about a government policy that affects all Americans and immigrants and the people living here. And it’s harming our country,” Coulter added.

The New York Times best-selling author also recently made some controversial comments at an event in Houston this week. While promoting her book "Adios America!" she said that “if immigration continues the way it has been going, we are looking at 100 years of President Obamas.” She added that immigration is “the one overriding issue for the country for all time,” Breitbart reported.

Coulter’s remarks came at an event featuring her and conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, which was sponsored by AM1070 “The Answer” and the Sam Malone Radio Show. According to Breitbart, she spoke about immigration, how she believes the United States has changed since the days of president and conservative hero Ronald Reagan, the 2016 election cycle and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

“No matter what the question is -- you could ask me about my meatloaf recipe -- and I could turn it back to immigration,” Coulter said near the beginning of her talk. An author and political commentator, Coulter considers immigration one of her favorite topics and often focuses on the issue as a sign of how she believes the country is faring.

“The American people are being out-voted. We can’t win anything. If immigration, legal and illegal … continues the way it has been going, we are looking at 100 years of President Obamas, and an entire Supreme Court of Ruth Bader Ginsbergs,” Coulter said during her talk.


She also warned against the influence of big donors in presidential campaigns and railed against what she saw as the other Republican candidates’ lack of specifics on immigration policy. For good measure, Coulter also told the audience at Houston Baptist University that she could see Donald Trump winning the presidency and is feeling optimistic about the upcoming campaign season.

The conservative is known for her controversial statements and is often found vehemently defending comments that others say cross the line. During the last Republican presidential debate, she came under fire for tweeting, “How many f---ing Jews do these people think there are in the United States?”



She said afterward that she thought the candidates were pandering to Jewish voters because several mentioned Israel in their responses to a question about what America would look like if they were president.
