Ann Coulter vs. Joy Behar on 'Larry King Live': TKO Coulter?

Ann Coulter appeared on a Joy Behar-hosted edition of Larry King Live last night, and CNN kept superimposing the caption, “Ann Coulter Unleashed!” Boy, was the network, and Behar, just aching for Coulter to scorch up the airwaves. This is why Coulter gets invited on TV shows when she has a book to flog: she can be relied upon to say outrageous things, egged on by her hosts. But last night, Behar was trying too hard. Quoting the conservative columnist Rich Lowry about some discussion point, Behar suddenly asked Coulter, “Did you ever date him?” Huh? Gee, kind of a sexist question, isn’t that, Joy?

Trying to align Coulter with Rush Limbaugh, Behar said that Limbaugh wasn’t a Republican but an “extreme right-winger” and that a lot of Limbaugh’s listeners probably hated him. Coulter responded that when you have over 20 million listeners, you’re not extreme but “dead down the center” when it comes to popularity. She also asked Behar if, given the fact that Oprah Winfrey has an audience at least as big if not larger, would Behar say that a big chunk of Oprah’s audience hates Oprah? Whatever you think of Coulter, this just makes pop-cultural sense. I always enjoy you on The View, Joy, but last night on Larry King, I’d have to say, you got served by Coulter.

Check it out and tell me what you think…

    Anything to do with Ann Coulter, I pretty much run screaming from because I, quite literally, find her vile words sickening. They really should have had Janeane Garofalo go up against her. That, I might watch. I have seen Janeane take on people at Fox News head to head and do very well. She is always well prepared and facts will shake those types anytime.

      You seem quite delusional. Janene Garofalo made an ass out of herself on national tv—give me a break.

      Lynny…..you are a Moron!!!!!

    I enjoy Tucker’s hypocrisy in this article. He chastizes CNN for tarting Coulter up as a sure-fire ratings grabber, then proceeds to stir up more debate by commenting on her performance her. Just watch – the comments for this article will be in the hundreds by the end of the day. Good way to boost EW’s traffic on a lagging Friday, huh, Ken? It worked on me!

  • Becca Porter

    I loved this clip. I think the very fact that people are so passionate about/against Ann Coulter proves how very smart she really is.
    She makes sense. My 11 year marriage is proof positive that she is right about “shotgun weddings”. She easily won this “debate”.

  • Rob

    Coulter is the worst.

    • Ian

      Rob…you are a loser!

  • Lynny

    I can’t stand professional wrestling either. That doesn’t make it smart.

  • Alyssa

    Shes SICKENING and DELUSIONAL. Boy I thought Bush was in denial. Look around you there miss Ann, Doesnt look like the Republicans are the ones to turn to when leading a country. AND yes BUSH got us in this eight years ago not last fall. Dippy blonde conservative right wing nut.

    • Maryanne

      I think Joy Behar is a liberal idot and Ann Coulter is a brilliant conservative. I LOVE Ann Coulter

  • Randy McLeod

    Started watching your video “unleashed”, but turned it off. When that lady (Coulter) said told Ms. Behar that everyone loved her(Coulter). I almost vomited. If and when I happen to see this lady on a talkshow, what she says goes in one ear and out the other. She just doesn’t make any sense when she trying to talk, just tossing that bleached blonde hair all over the place. Oh, by the way, I DO NOT LOVE HER, like she thinks many do, lol.

      Randy you stupid pot smoking loser.Coulter hates you and your children!

  • Clover Jones

    Like it or not Ann Coulter is brilliant, acerbic and extremely well-informed – Joy Behar was pushy, abrasive and whiny as she went for the sleaze factor in every sophmoric question she posed. Coulter bested her hands down. Deal with it.

  • Lin

    I guess it was brave of Behar to take on Coulter away from The View, where she has all those other screeching harpies to help her drown out anyone she disagrees with. When Coulter is given a chance to speak, she usually demonstrates superior command of the facts, so yeah, she won on points. It’s crazy-stupid, for example, that people like Behar lambaste Limbaugh and then admit that they don’t listen to him. And it’s Rich Lowry, not Rick. Funny: Coulter had sort of a feud w/ Lowry’s National Review Online, so Behar’s “have you dated him?” query was just dumb.

  • Kevin

    Clover Jones, you’re right on the “acerbic” call but pretty much off on “brilliant” and especially “well informed”. I’d say that it does take a certain amount of craftiness to do what Coulter does and that craftiness could be interpretted as “brilliance”. But she is actually one of the most uninformed talking-heads in the business. She has misquoted, misinterpretted, and straight up invented so many of her “facts” as to be laughable. But, the reason she does what she does so well is because she sells it. She believes what she says when she says it and by the time real journalists disprove her “facts”, it’s irrelevant… she’s gotten her “facts” out into the public strata and made her point. Joy Behar was simply out of her league in that interview.

    • Steve

      Kevin, Why don’t You give me some facts to prove your point?

    • Ian

      and you are out of your league with your uninformed garbage non faactual crap.

  • Cleetus

    Limbaugh is centrist because he has 20 million listeners? So what about the other 280 million people in America who don’t listen to him? And how long on average do those 20 million even listen for?
    Behar got served?
    Not at all.

  • Beverly

    Randy: Coulter didn’t say everyone loved her; she was countering Behar’s claim that people hate her.
    But don’t let the facts get in the way of your ostrich-schtick.

  • Jimmy

    I can’t stand Ann Coulter but for the first time I understood and actually agreed with some of what she said. Even though she is very unsympathetic she does speak facts and I also noticed she was quite reerved and made Joy look like an idiot. Joy is pften intelligent and wise on the view but here she annoyd me always going in with a dumb or scandalous point of view instead of trying to debate rationally.

  • JJ

    Ann Coulter is the devil.
