Conservative pundit Ann Coulter has said Hillary Clinton’s expected presidency bid in 2016 will fizzle, just like City Council Speaker Christine Quinn’s New York mayoral bid this year.
“I don’t think she’s that formidable. I think it will be a re-run of – sorry, this is a New York reference – but another Christine Quinn,” Coulter said on CNN’s "Piers Morgan Live" on Wednesday night.
“We were told, ‘Inevitable, inevitable, she’s the next mayor, next mayor!’ People came and voted, and, ‘Nah, I don’t think so.’”
Irish American Christine Quinn, who would have been the city's first female openly gay mayor topped polls earlier this year before finishing a distant third in last month’s Democratic primary.
Coulter made the comments as she and Morgan discussed President Obama’s appeal among young voters and whether or not that would transfer to his successor.
Colter believes it will not: “I think the Obama magic goes away with any of the other Democratic candidates.”
“Even Hillary Clinton?” asked host Piers Morgan.
“The only people fainting at her rallies are gonna be chubby gals from NOW,” quipped Coulter, referring to the National Organization for Women.
Coulter, who was on the show to promote a new book, also praised the GOP’s handling of the government shutdown.
“Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, the House Republicans. I think the last three weeks have been magnificent,” noted the 51-year-old political commentator.
