Ann Coulter Bashes Republicans 'Attacking Their Own': 'Just Become A Democrat!'

Ann Coulter had strong words for certain Republicans when she visited HuffPost Live on Monday.

The conservative political commentator spoke about immigration reform, the 2016 presidential election and her new book, " Never Trust A Liberal Over 3: Especially A Republican," in which she targets a rather unexpected group: Republicans.

"I've always felt this way about them," Coulter told HuffPost Live host Marc Lamont Hill when he asked about the reason for her turn against Republicans like Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).

"It's just particularly painful," Coulter continued. "Look, if you're a liberal, if your brain is wired that way, ya know--fine. But in the case of people like Rubio and McCain, Lindsay Graham, Huckabee, I think an awful lot of it is so they will get favorable press in the media."

Coulter's comments refer to recent Republican infighting following the 16-day government shutdown.

"To be turning around and attacking your own, just become a Democrat!" she concluded.
