The world of politics can be an ugly place, but things got even uglier after Monday’s debate.
While the world shared its opinions on Twitter, conservative author Ann Coulter took it a step farther when she tweeted that it was nice of Mitt Romney to be nice to the “retard.”
Coulter is no stranger to making outlandish statements and has a career semi-based on doing so, but a quick glance of the responses to her tweet shows that people felt she took it too far.
@anncoulter You truly are a disgusting excuse for human flesh. Who dropped you on your head as a child you evil slag?

Even sadder than your gross tweet are the 2000 lemmings that retweeted or favorited it. @anncoulter You should apologize.
