And, when Coulter said she "loved" the Tea Party, Morgan seemed flabbergasted: "I don't get that because you're a smart cookie," before again impugning the Tea Party: "They're not among the brightest of spellers."
When Coulter defended Tea Partiers as "smarter than any liberal," Morgan could not accept it, repeatedly asking: "Do you think so?...You really think that?...In your heart?"
Here's the relevant transcript of the June 7 exchange:
PIERS MORGAN, HOST: Where is the similar mob to Mussolini's and Hitler's in the modern democratic era?
ANN COULTER: Well, I would say that there are a lot of similarities. The French Revolution.
MORGAN: Tea Party?
COULTER: No. No, no, no.
MORGAN: Nearest thing to it?
COULTER: No, they're much closer to the original Tea Party, which, and actually not as, not as much of a rabble as the original Tea Party, which as I point out, the Founding Fathers weren't wild about the original Tea Party curiously enough because they were so against mobs.
MORGAN: Are you wild about them?
COULTER: About who?
MORGAN: The Tea Party.
COULTER: Oh, the current Tea Party?
COULTER: Oh, yeah, I love them.
MORGAN: See, I don't really get that.
COULTER: I speak to them.
MORGAN: I don't get that because you're a smart cookie.
COULTER: So are the Tea Partiers!
MORGAN: What do people think about you? You're intelligent. You live a provocative life.
COULTER: I believe you're insulting the Tea Partiers.
MORGAN: Well, they're not among the brightest of spellers, are they?
COULTER: They're smarter than any liberal.
MORGAN: Do you think so?
MORGAN: You really think that?
COULTER: Yes, I do.
MORGAN: In your heart?
COULTER: I meet them and speak to them and they get my jokes which already makes them smarter than the average liberal.
