When my friend Ann Coulter came to see us in studio on Friday she mentioned the blind-siding that she had just experienced with Danny Deutsch of CNBC.In her own words, he led her down this path to ask her what the world would look like if she had the chance to be for sake of a better way of putting it Queen for the day. She relayed to me then that what unfolded she was truly taken off guard by.Ann had done Deutsch's show previously. They are philosophical opposites on almost everything yet had always maintained a healthy even friendly respect for each other - or so she thought.What happened during the taping aired this week. See for yourself as Deutsch begins to work her over until he feels like he's drawn sufficient blood. Because of their past relative friendly history - Ann bit her tongue and did not unleash the fury that Deutsch had coming. Long story short the transcript is now circulating online on blogs, and talk radio shows. MOST are condemning Ann in grotesque manners.
As long as I have known Ann, I can vouch for her dependence upon her Christian faith as perhaps the most meaningful part of her life. She is an uber-lawyer but less sophisticated theologian, still she holds up under the rapid fire of Deutsch's relentless tirade of gotcha. She even invites him to go to church with her in the near future. And along those lines I would say that she is purporting the Christian view. I would have not used the term "perfected" though in the most technical sense of the word it IS what she means. In essence the Christian view holds that Jesus was the promised Messiah and the New Testament was the instruction book for Christians, as well as Messianic Jews to live accordingly - in order to be ultimately respectful to God the Father. Ann had it right - even to the mention of Falwell. Deutsch showed his true bigotry in the interview - and its not the first time, he hit my other friend Stephen Baldwin with a similar tactic.
