Airline meets airhead

Maybe it’s karma! Back in April, when that guy got dragged out of his seat on United Airlines (not to mention battered a bit), Ann Coulter, professional aggrieved person, twote, “Sorry about the dragging, but the convicted pill-mill doctor should be deported,” because of course the passenger, David Dao, was originally from Vietnam and was a Bad Person. But when Ann Coulter, professional aggrieved person, was inadvertently re-accommodated to another seat on a flight Saturday, she went more than a little batshit crazy on Twitter. Fine, crazier.

First, she proclaimed Delta “the worst airline in America, because they reassigned her extra-legroom seat to another passenger — without so much as a single truncheon being used on her, we should note. She documented the injustice, with photos and extra outrage:

Knowing how Twitter works, we’ll just assume both the flight attendant and the passenger who got Coulter’s seat — which Coulter PRE-BOOKED! — have both entered the Witness Protection Program for their own safety. As the Washington Post points out, they may have been

wondering what will happen now that they have been photographed by the same unpredictable commentator who once wished assassination upon John Edwards, declined to condemn an abortion doctor’s murder and joked about poisoning a Supreme Court justice.

Fair enough, but WaPo didn’t even mention the time she wished Tim McVeigh had blown up the New York Times instead. Maybe they secretly sympathize.

Coulter was just getting started, of course:

Shame on that woman who just waltzed tight in and took Coulter’s seat! Delta says Coulter was moved to a seat in the same row, but that’s not the point; she was being oppressed! According to the Delta spokesperson’s email to WaPo,

It appears her new seat was in the same row, just not the exact seat she had selected. It was an exit row seat (has extra leg room) […] She was moved from an aisle to a window. Same space, a few seats over.

That is not the point! She personally PRE-BOOKED AN AISLE SEAT. She NEEDED that aisle seat, and the woman who got it DID NOT.

Worse, she was treated TERRIBLY by GHOULS!

Note: Ratched. It’s Nurse Ratched. A lot of people make that mistake. Still, we’re glad to see she’s now against the torture of her fellow human beings, which seems an improvement over her attitude in 2014 when she tweeted she thought it was pretty good, as long as you call it something else:

Or perhaps that time she explained why NSA spying on Americans was no big:

I think the government should be spying on all Arabs, engaging in torture as a televised spectator sport, dropping daisy cutters wantonly throughout the Middle East and sending liberals to Guantanamo.

We suppose we might watch a TV show with Ann Coulter being told to change seats. But not on pay-per-view.

Still, Delta was willing to offer compensation for the extra bit Coulter paid for the aisle seat. But they weren’t content to offer her that pittance; they had to lecture her, because they are HATEFUL MONSTERS:

No! No! Not acceptable! Human rights violation! Where’s Amnesty International when you really NEED them?

Oh, what a world, what a world… Fortunately, Coulter has at last found a way to put her ordeal in proper context:

Yup. Gently chiding Ann Coulter and asking her to please not be a huge jerk is fascism (remember, Hitler made people change their seats, and didn’t respect their legroom AT ALL, especially in boxcars), and what this is really all about is a bunch of damned Politically Correct Social Justice Warriors oppressing people. HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN IN DONALD TRUMP’S AMERICA????????

Mind you, there are some who are less than sympathetic:

Not the same at all, dude. We’re talking about REAL oppression here.

Fortunately, the Free Market will fix this!!!!!

Yr Wonkette has no idea why Delta moved Coulter. Maybe a glitch, maybe they pre-booked the same seat upgrade for two people. In any case, we hope the woman who got Coulter’s seat is safe and not getting harassed. And for the love of Crom, we hope it doesn’t turn out her kitchen has granite countertops (yes, that was Michelle Malkin — we mix up our rightwing rage-harpies sometimes).

  • doktorzoom

    Hey, Terrible Ones, a quick reminder: While it’s not in the official rules, we don’t do “Ann Coulter is a dude” jokes here, because they’re insulting to trans people. The entire premise of the joke is that there’s something wrong or shameful about being trans, and that is not OK here.

    • CripesAmighty

      When we point out the uncanny resemblance to Mr. Ed, does that count?

      • MynameisBlarney

      • TundraGrifter

        Why the long face?

    • Villago Delenda Est

      There are PLENTY of other ways to describe Ann Coulter. Just be creative! We know you can do it!

      • I was getting so sick of people tweeting about Ann last night until I realized they meant something else by White Walker.

        • Villago Delenda Est

          See? Very good, and topical!

      • Edith Prickly

        My go-tos for her are the Coultergeist (because she’s noisy and annoying but ultimately inconsequential) and vicious, bile-spewing harpy (the Dantean model: “they have broad wings, with razor sharp talons and a human neck and face”).

        • nightmoth

          “Coultergeist” is delightful.

    • Snark Tank Full of Resistance

      While I completely agree with the policy (and note, I haven’t broken it!), how is this different than calling Sen. Graham “Miss Lindsey”? Just curious where the line is drawn.

      • doktorzoom

        We’re pretty tired of that one, too, honestly. I know I avoid it, and I think most of the other staff here do. He’s ridiculous enough all on his own.

          How about “Ann Coulter is a ho” jokes?

          Ann Coulter: You two ladies look awfully interesting. Are you Indians?
          Woman #1: Yes, I’m a Navajo.
          Woman #2: I’m an Arapahoe.
          Ann Coulter: What a coincidence! I’m a right-wing ho!

          • ziggywiggy

            I’d say no. It’s just too easy, come on, people need to be a little more creative than calling her a ho.

        • boredcatlady

          But what about Jeff Sessions as Scarlet O’Hara? Because I got reeealllly into that and I didn’t intend it to be a gender thing but as an entitled southern twit kind of thing, but maybe that’s not how it was received?

          • Hmmm. I’ve only seen Gone With the Wind once and I was pretty drunk, but wasn’t there some young twit in the opening scene who challenges Rhett Butler to a duel when Rhett points out that the Confederessah is going to get its ass whupped for it? Jeff Sessions can be that guy instead.

          • valgalky23

            Young Twit (Charles Hamilton) became Scarlet’s first husband who conveniently died of pneumonia following a bout of measles in camp two months into The Wahr.

          • boredcatlady

            OMG yes, you’re totally right!!! Charles Hamilton! Omg I’m so glad I remembered that because I wasn’t going to watch the movie again to find out.

          • AuntyMaude

            Charles Hamilton (Melanie Hamilton’s brother?) is too naive and nice to be a scoundrel like Sessions. I vote for the guy in To Kill a Mockingbird Bob Ewell. Here’s a description of him from Sparknotes.com:
            ” …In his knowingly wrongful accusation that Tom Robinson raped his daughter, Ewell represents the dark side of the South: ignorance, poverty, squalor, and hate-filled racial prejudice” Okay, the poverty and squalor part don’t fit unless you’re talking about Sessions’ soul, but the rest is spot on.

        • I think there should be an exception for clearly superior irreverent, extraordinarily witty banter – from a source that is unimpeachable.

      • CripesAmighty

        I think the deal with Graham is not so much about with one’s more feminine characteristics in general, but the absurdity of one who, in attempting to project as ruff-n-tuff Rhett, comes off as Scarlett.

        • nightmoth

          Exactly. As a Southerner, that’s how I use it. Lindsey talks like he-man Rhett, but he acts like that conniving bitch Scarlett.

    • Keith Taylor

      Doktorzoom, I agree with you, but you aren’t going far enough. Texting that “Ann Coulter is a human being” insults the entire human race, straight, gay, trans or whatever. Let’s please never do it. I mean, I was convinced that the stuff on YouTube about reptoid aliens in disguise as Hillary Clinton and the British royal family eating human babies raw was a load of deranged raw sewage. Then I looked a bit more closely at Coulter (must have been one of my masochistic days) and now I’m not so certain … only they aren’t the Brits or the Clintons …

    • But there absolutely is something to be ashamed about for being Ann Coulter. Or everything

      • ariel_gee_398

        She’s proof of the limited power of a portrait locked away in an attic.

    • Mildred Broxon

      Besides, saying Ann Coulter is one is an insult to all decent trans people.

      • OrdinaryJoe

        Nothing wrong or shameful about being trans. What’s wrong and shameful is Ann Coulter.

    • Jeffery Campbell

      Thank you. I will adjust my entire premise to “There is something wrong and shameful about being Ann Coulter.” That should pass muster.

    • aureolaborealis

      I personally prefer the ‘Ann Coulter is undead’ jokes.

    • javadavis

      Did I up-vote this yet? Well I did now.

    I cannot muster even the ghost a sarcastic smirk, because I have better uses for the calories from my delicious breakfast than giving a fuck about Ann Coulter.

  • Fartknocker

    I never have had this problem on SW airlines. And for the most part, the customers and flight staff are generally pleasant and tolerant. Ann Coulter is neither pleasant or tolerant and bloviating her woes on Twitter puts her at the same class as President Dampnut.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      She probably sees that as a compliment.

    • Vagenda of Rebel Scum

      Southwest doesn’t have reserved seating, although you can buy a place at the front of the line. If you plant your ass there, it’s yours, as long as you meet the exit row requirements.

    • marxalot

      I prefer to fly SW despite (or because of?) the lack of “assigned” seating: you may have to find a seat when you get on, but you’re generally allowed to stay in it once you have, and the plane usually both lands and takes off roughly on time. A low bar, to be sure, but this is a reduced age.

  • TJ Barke

    I just can’t even with this petty, evil bitch…

    I always thought Ann’s biggest concern when travelling by air was ensuring that there was plenty of fresh straw bedding in her stall.

  • Spotts1701, Nothingburger Chef

    Yes, Ann. It is unacceptable to publicly berate employees and customers of a company, and it is not “fascism” for the company to come to the defense of their employees and customers. It’s called “compassion”. Maybe you can spend the $30 to purchase some.

  • Villago Delenda Est

    One reason to dislike Ann Coulter is that she inspires a Wonkette story, which in turn causes Dok’s blood pressure to go up as he deals with the non-comments.

    • I would pay any amount of money to not be seated on the same plane as Ann Coulter

    • ariel_gee_398

      Even if she rates herself at $1000/hr, spending 10 hours looking at planes and seating arrangements is…not normal.

      The larger question is, why does Ann bother to fly commercial at all? With her money, she could probably afford a Beechcraft Bonanza.

      • Snark Tank Full of Resistance

        I gotta admit, I spend a few minutes on seatguru when I book a flight. Some seats really are better than others, if things like wanting a window to look out of, or knowing if the curvature of the fuselage strips away a few precious inches of room are important.

        I don’t obsess, mind you, but I actively seek out green seats, especially if the seat in front of me can’t recline.

    • Snark Tank Full of Resistance

      The banshee probably spent two and a half minutes on seatguru dot com (a great resource, btw!), and thinks that’s worth ten grand.

  • Zonath

    Always a fun time when some conservative commentator declares that someone else asking them to act and speak like a decent human being is “fascist”. Because apparently those of us who equate fascism with nationalism and authoritarianism were wrong all along; fascism is really all about asking people not to act like assholes in public.

        Even if we found out that ALL of the GRU was at Junior’s meeting, I’m not sure it’d merit a headline.

    • Well who cares about that stuff when Ann Coulter is being mildly inconvenienced oppressed!? Sometimes it’s about priorities, people!

    • Persistent Demme

      But little do they know, that unlike them, we can focus on more than one thing at a time!

  • I feel like we’re libelling Harpies here. Upside, they’re myffic and can’t take legal action

  • Finnibar87

    Ann Coulter is trying a hand at this whole ‘deflect Russia from all Trumps’ thingy, I see.

  • chascates

    I would gladly walk to my destination rather than have to sit in the same aircraft as Ann Coulter.

    • Vagenda of Rebel Scum

      I would gladly borrow someone’s squirmy, airsickness prone two year old with a mild ear infection if it meant that I could sit next to her on the plane.

  • I would personally enjoy sitting next to Ann Coulter and giving her the what for for an hour or two during the flight.

    She would beg to change seats, pre-booked or not.

    • CripesAmighty

      Indeed. Like: Gee, Ann, what’s it like to have someone hijack your shtick and ride it all the way to the presidency, along with former basement trolls who figured out that Internet thing and converted your little grift into multimillion-dollar rackets–while you’re stuck in the back of the plane flogging your little paper polemics at Rusty Acres Mall next to the Chick-fil-a?

    • BearGHAZI

      I think I’d vomit on her and make it seem an accident. Wherever she goes in this world, people should vom all over her

      • You know like she generally does to everyone else (in fact that sentence sums up her career in a nutshell.)

  • UnsaltedSinner
    • Ryan Denniston

      And Delta to boot!

  • Antonin Dvorak

    Slightly OT, but I guess I haven’t flown in longer than what I remember, because I had no clue Delta had screens in the backs of all the seats now.

    • I got excited when Via rail in Canada got wifi

    • Finnibar87

      Some planes do, yes.

      But Delta will also charge for headsets.

      • Antonin Dvorak

        Classic Delta.

  • Finnibar87

    Are we supposed to boycott Delta because Ann Coulter melted down like a dumb snowflake?

  • LeftyProud

    If I were the women who was assigned Anne Coulter’s seat, I would be smiling like a fool and posting about it all day! I would turn to AC as she was taking a photo (me smiling and giving the thumbs up the whole time) and say :”LOVE THE EXTRA LEG ROOM I HAVE! WAS THIS SUPPOSED TO BE YOUR SEAT? MINE NOW!” and farted in her face. Small victories.

  • Mpeg

    She sounds like she couldn’t have been more disappointed if she’d been writing love letters to the special seat, building up anticipation toward when they’d finally meet.. . little sweet nothings like, “How joyous when we’re finally together face butt to face!”… And then — cue the screeching violins — the moment arrives at last, Ann beholds her beloved Airplane Seat of Destiny — “I’ve crossed oceans of time to find you!”**

    — only to get robbed. ROBBED, man oh man! Coulter should sell her story to Coppola at the earliest opportunity, he’s long overdue to make another vampire flick~

  • alwayspunkindrublic

    The victim here is no doubt the poor fucking woman who was given Coulter’s seat, through no fault of her own. I’m assuming by now she has been identified and doxxed by Coulter-geists, and receiving the requisite death and rape threats. Not-white, also too. Is this a great country or what?

    • Komsumverweigerer Ron

      What?

    • Vagenda of Rebel Scum

      I don’t know the laws, but that’s a place where an ordinary citizen who’s not a public figure ought to be able to sue.

      • alwayspunkindrublic

        I don’t know for a fact this has happened…I would just be surprised if it hasn’t.

    • Gayer Than Thou

      But I think it was the guy by the window who got her seat – isn’t that the one that has the extra leg room, so they can open the emergency exit? Not that it really matters, because the main takeaway from this story is that Ann Coulter can’t afford to fly first class.

      • alwayspunkindrublic

        I hope they didn’t give her any fucking peanuts either.

        • CripesAmighty

          They were out of sugar cubes
          (ok, ok, I’ll stop…)

          • Covfefe

            Could have given her an apple.

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            Just make sure you hold it out in your palm with your digits extended. She’s been known to bite fingers off.

  • Ghenghis McCann

    Dear Delta, here’s my suggestion for your new slogan; Fly Delta. Avoid Ann Coulter. It’s the obvious choice.

    • AnnieGetYerFun

      Yeah, I have never flown Delta before but am definitely going to start now.

  • BigCSouthside

    I am a very tall person, and most US airlines have turned their planes into flying busses trying to cram as many people as possible on, reducing legroom, so I get the obsession with having it.

    But if you got to keep your legroom in coach shut the fuck up and chalk that up as a win. Coach is the fucking thunder dome on US airlines. I generally need two rum and cokes just to tolerate it

    • rosenbomb

      My beau is 6’6″, and I truly didn’t know how uncomfortable many public spaces can be for tall people until meeting him.

      But yeah, Coulter got to keep the legroom so ¯_(ツ)_/¯

      • BigCSouthside

        Planes used to be ok, they actually arranged them for normal people.

        Also if you recline the seat without checking the height of person behind you, fuck you. I fucking torture those people when they do that to me

        • rosenbomb

          “oh this is nice…my knees are rammed up into the seat in front of me and my legs are falling asleep”

          • BigCSouthside

            Yep. I usually do my best to make sure the back of the persons seat in front of me is never stationary

        • Finnibar87

          Which is why I so rarely put my seat back in coach.

          I’m not into kneecapping.

      • alwayspunkindrublic

        I’m 6’6″, and airline travel is almost beyond endurance for me. Seats in any major sporting venue also too.

        • Yikes, I’m 5’7″ and that sucks for me. You have my sympathy

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            I literally cannot sit normally in an airline seat…my knees would be jammed against the seat back in front of my so firmly, my feet wouldn’t touch the floor. And God forbid the person in front of me reclines the seat.

        • BigCSouthside

          I prefer standing room only for most venues

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            Right?

        • rosenbomb

          I’m grateful to be 5’4″

      • Finnibar87

        Coulter is about 5’7″.

        She counts her hair as height.

    • Martini Ambassador 🍸

      True story. I once took an intercontinental flight with the Harlem Globetrotters. It was a very full flight, and they flew coach (presumably they don’t really pull in enough $$ to book first class everywhere). While many of them got aisle or emergency-exit-row seats, many others were crammed into middle seats just like normal folks. It was an uncomfortable flight for short little me, I can only imagine how much it sucked for them. Weird thing is, they were all really quite pleasant about the whole thing and I don’t think even one of them took to Twitter to bitch about their worse-than-Hitler treatment.

      • BigCSouthside

        Coulter is such a snowflake

    • Persistent Demme

      My late dad was 6’9″, and he would NOT be able to fly these days.
      Btw: back when I was a kid, (60’s) I used to stretch out and sleep on the floor of the plane, at my parent’s feet(!).
      THAT is how much legroom there was!

  • Mr. Blobfish

    This is worse than two slaveries and one mega-Hitler.

  • I dunno Dok. I think the Coultergiest is more “acid rain” than “snowflake.”

    • Finnibar87

      *acid rain snowflake.

      Which are the worst.

  • mancityRed6

    and yet there’s nothing about this on brainfart. I guess they just don’t care about her.
    but there is a nice advertising…er…story about a movie coming out next year with Oprah in it.
    yeah, those comments were all just so wonderful.

    How long is 10k of Ann Coilter’s time? I assume she values her time at a higher rate than the rest of us? Or did it take her a couple of months to research the seat and the plane type?

    Also, wow, daschund legged? Damn.

    • Finnibar87

      When they came for the dachshund legged women, I didn’t speak up.

    • Bub, Zombie in mourning

      I suspect Ann’s own legs look something like this:

    • alwayspunkindrublic

      Because her books are bought en masse by right wing foundations and left to rot in warehouses just to get her on the NYT bestseller list, she obviously believes she is a successful and talented “author”.

    • WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot

      I think she uses the same accounting tricks to value her time as the Marmalade Menace uses to value his “brand”.

    • Persistent Demme

      Also, what does daschund legged even mean?
      Pigeon toed?
      Stumpy?
      Furry?
      Knarled?
      Multi-colored?

    I truly feel sympathy for those people she wagged her ass in front of 20 times
    that, and all the grumbling about unfair and don’t they know who I am tirades.

    • Finnibar87

      That menopause is a tough row to hoe!

  • cmd resistor

    So one of the stories I read was that she had originally booked the window seat she ended up getting but kept checking to see if the aisle one with more leg room was available and when it opened up she paid the extra $30. (This would be what cost $10,000 of her time.) THis morning I heard on TV that Delta said there was some sort of computer glitch that meant that people had to take the seats that were printed on their tickets. THis would kind of make sense — who knows and ultimately who cares. She certainly seems of the Trump school of thought that any publicity is good.

  • Ryan Denniston

    Two questions.

    1) Isn’t the window preferable to the aisle?
    2) Does leg room vary within any given row?

    • Finnibar87

      Delta provides comfort econ seats.

      To make up for the fact that the rest of the plane has seats only a young Swedish boy can squeeze into.

    • Zonath

      1) Not when one has to be constantly getting up for the bathroom because they’re 6 whiskeys in (on a 30 minute flight) and alcohol is a diuretic.

    • Antonin Dvorak

      1) I prefer the aisle, so I can stretch out periodically and see up and down the plane. I don’t like only seeing the seat in front of me.
      2) I don’t think so, especially not in an exit row.

      • Ryan Denniston

        I agree, but she erroneously believes that that central aisle space belongs to her seat assignment when in fact, it belongs to the commons and she’s encroaching on the rights of others to also use that space.

    • CripesAmighty

      She wanted the aisle so she could trip the flight attendants.

      • Finnibar87

        To be fair: only the less pale, female ones.

    • BigCSouthside

      I always go for the aisle

      I am trying to imagine what kind of person would work for Ann, and I can’t think of what kind of masochist would be interested. One with really low self esteem?

      • Jenny

    • Jean-Raplhio agrees:

      https://youtu.be/9IRJk02gfQc

    • susan_g

      “Broke ass Coulter is broke.”

      That’s why she’s riding in coach, not first class, and definitely not in someone’s private plane. It’s tough when the grift runs out–ask Palin.

      • OrdinaryJoe

        When her writing was selling she had cabana boys to take care of these things.

    • aureolaborealis

      Also: If that coach seat cost you $10,000+ all-in, why didn’t you just skip the amateur travel agent sleuthing, and buy yourself a first-class seat?

  • Nounverb911

    I can’t wait to see Coulter’s tweets when Delta bans her.

      • Ghenghis McCann

        I agree, but in the northern parts of Scotland, you’ll hear the phrase White Settlers which covers any entitled assholes regardless of gender, race or religion. They just remind people of the white colonists in the days of the British Empire.

  • Anna Rompage

    Um, if spending a few minutes booking a flight is worth $10k of her time, why the hell wasn’t she flying in 1st class to begin with?

  • ariel_gee_398

    Not too long ago, there was an essay in the Guardian from Roxane Gay about her relationship with her body where she discussed how she feels traveling on planes. The whole thing absolutely heartbreaking and perhaps a reminder to Coulter that she should look into meditation or something and STFU?

    On this particular flight, this agitated man called for a flight attendant. He stood and followed her to the galley, from where his voice echoed through the plane as he said it was too risky for me to be seated in the exit row. He clearly thought my presence in the exit row meant the end of his life. I dug my fingernails into the palms of my hands as people began to turn and stare at me and mutter their own comments. I tried not to cry. Eventually, the agitated man was reseated elsewhere, and once the plane took off, I curled into the side of the plane and cried as silently as I could.

    From then on, I began to buy two economy seats, which, when I was still relatively young and broke, meant I could rarely travel.

  • AnnieGetYerFun

    If the lady beside her had such short legs, what’s the big? If you put a person with daschund legs next to me on a flight, I’d be cool.

    • Serai 1

      Because the seat Missy Thing paid OMG THIRTY WHOLE EXTRA DOLLARS FOR had extra leg room. Gotta cram those sticks in somewhere.

      • AnnieGetYerFun

        I have an idea of where she can cram them.

  • Vagenda of Rebel Scum

    Maybe she would have been less irritable if she’d drank a second box of Chardonnay before boarding the plane.

    • Finnibar87

      With the extra xanax.

  • SomeBigRedDog

    You’re time is worth $10,000 but your not flying first class? Yeah I’m not buying it.

    • Serai 1

      It’s only worth $10,000 to her. Nobody else is interested.

    • Jeffery Campbell

      You have to do the math. This means it took her 10,000 hours to complete the task.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Where’s the Secret Service in all this? I mean, they shouldn’t have allowed the dachsund-legged lady on the plane in the first place!

  • marxalot

    So, if it took Ann 10k$ worth of time to book her flight… either she takes half a year to select a seat or her going rate is way higher than the market will bear. Which may explain why she’s flying coach.

    • OutOfOrbit

      Bitches gotta bitch.

    • BigCSouthside

      which begs the question: why didn’t she just book first class instead of wasting 10k worth of time studying the fuckin schematics of the plane?

      • Serai 1

        Because she can’t afford it, obviously. She’s not the Queen of the Right she used to be.

      • marxalot

        It had been a while since her name was in the news, I assume.

  • alwayspunkindrublic

    Maybe she should go cry to her BFF Bill Maher about this.

  • beatbort

    I think everyone on the plane should have been refunded $30 for having to share the plane with Coulter.

    • Serai 1

      I hope Delta is reaching out to that customer she pissed at, even if it’s only to say they’re on it.

  • Bigby

    I wonder if the $10k she spent includes shorting Delta first and then wanking at the $127 “profit” she’d make when it went back to normal after a day or two…

    But yeah, she’s another proof there is no god. That the person who told completely innocent people shoved into Guantanamo for years to ‘STFU and deal with it’ didn’t spontaneously combust into a lump of brimstone at this crybaby bullshit seals it.

Please look at the top of the comment section and reconsider why you think there’s something hilarious about trans people, OK? The entire premise of the joke is that there’s something wrong or shameful about being trans, and that is not OK here.

          Of course. Thank you for helping me be Not A Idiot. I will adjust my premise going forward to “there is something shameful about being Ann Coulter” and perhaps that will pass muster.

          • doktorzoom

            That works admirably.

  • Lyly Sirivong

    People are generally quite accommodating when you ask nicely. Many times, in concert halls or in planes, I asked to change seats so I could be next to the aisle (I tend to go to the bathroom a lot) or sit next to relative or a friend. But I guess Ann Coulter isn’t the kind to ask nicely.

    • Oblios_Cap

      She’s a Republican, so, no.

  • Résistance Land Shark Ω

    Dear Ann Coulter:

    Read the fucking terms and conditions of carriage, you dissected harpy. They are a PRIVATE company, you fucking dumb twat … they own the plane, and you’re at their mercy. Piss off and buy your own plane, you ceaselessly shrill dried-up and washed-up pundit.

          Yeah, I’ve reclaimed bitch and refuse to get offended if I’m called that; which is exactly why I won’t call Coulter a bitch. She doesn’t deserve the title.

      • tempus

        You’ll be happy to know ‘bitch’ and ‘cunt’ are now non-‘gendered’, just like ‘asshole.’ These terms were liberated from the tyranny of the gender binary because they were deemed indispensable for describing males as well :)

  • boredcatlady

    I mean, she publicly said a non-famous, private citizen had “dachshund legs” and is somehow responsible for Ann’s victim noises. Who does that???!

    Well, in any event, I hope the people don’t get doxxed , and if they do, I hope they have as many guns and nice neighbors as I do.

  • marxalot

    Look, Ann, you wanted a free market without government interference. You wanted private companies free to set their own rules without direct redress for customers, secure that the market would fix any problems. You wanted the war of all against all. You asked for this. This is what it’s like.

        She is a textbook sociopath.
        https://welldoing.org/article/how-to-spot-sociopath-women
        “Sociopathy is a disorder of personality. At it’s core is a pathological level of narcissism. The self-esteem of the sociopath is poorly regulated because the sociopath acts to protect and sustain an inflated, but ultimately fragile and unstable sense of self. Emotion regulation is compromised by difficulties in experiencing, processing and moderating certain feelings, most especially anger, shame and envy.”

        • OrdinaryJoe

          I’ve seen passengers go into that kind of rage after they spent too much time in a pre-flight cocktail binge.

        • justifiable

          No, she isn’t, because the link you’re quoting from – a poorly paraphrased summary of a work by Jane McGregor (whose training is in public health, not psychology) incorrectly conflates antisocial personality disorder with narcissism, and calls the whole ignorant mess “sociopathy,” as in “a disorder of personality.” Oy. While anti-social and narcissistic personality disorders DO overlap in the “Cluster B” group definition in DSM-VI and therefore aren’t mutually exclusive, they really aren’t interchangeable. NPD with a side order of histrionic is a far better characterization for Coulter.

          Anti-social personality disorder is characterized by a disregard for others/lack of empathy, lack of remorse or shame, impulsivity that often contributes to irresponsibility/inability to maintain work or economic commitments, aggressiveness, unbridled egocentricity, and a deceitfulness/willingness to manipulate or lie in order to achieve goals. Only when this behavior is taken to dangerous or criminal extremes is it referred to as “sociopathic” or even “psychopathic” behavior. The diagnosis is serious, and is given only if there is a history of some symptoms manifesting before the age of 15.

          Narcissistic personality disorder is characterized by grandiosity, such as exaggerating one’s importance and/or achievements and expecting to be recognized as a superior or high-status person who deserves special treatment without having accomplished anything deserving of that rank, power fantasies, a similar sense of entitlement and lack of empathy, and a need for excessive admiration and attention. Since the self-esteem of whose with NPD is, ironically, typically very fragile, they have difficulty with criticism, rejection or defeat and see these as gross injuries or insults.

          Histrionic PD is characterized by self-centeredness to the point where the individual is uncomfortable if all eyes are not on them, a need for reassurance/approval, an exaggerated concerned with physical appearance, and in turn using that to pull attention, inappropriate sexual behavior (with the same result), excessive dramatics with exaggerated emotion, rapidly shifting and essentially shallow emotional states,a tendency to perceive relationships are deeper or more intimate than they are, and a tendency to be easily influenced by other people.

  • OrdinaryJoe

    She has certainly been a transformative figure in the public debate whose ranting and raving has helped direct the US transition from democracy to fascism and in particular the transfer of wealth to a ruling entitled elite. In the transition there have moments that have made the transformation accelerate. Perhaps I suspect these events from this weekend are transient. Delta is a fine airline, and I have never seen them forcibly transplant a passenger from the seat of their choice, and in my opinion they have been working to bring major improvement in the transportation industry that benefit its customers. I am certain we are all hoping there will soon be a transcript of Delta’s alleged transgression so we will all be able to judge for ourselves what transpired.

    • kareemachan

      I have a different view of Delta after trying to get my ticket for a flight to AK (and having to catch a connecting flight from there). The person at the counter spent a good half hour helping his friend get a good deal on a flight while ignoring my requests to be helped. I wrote and called to the company and never heard back from them.

      My memory is long and I do NOT like that company.

      • OrdinaryJoe

        I’ve had the exact opposite experience, where the gate crew and flight attendants couldn’t do enough to help me and my family make a transfer to our connecting flight after a delayed departure from LA. Goes to show. Everybody has a bad day now and then.

    Yes, okay, Delta is awful; we all know that.

      Maybe next time she’ll be against monopolistic practices that limit her choice in the marketplace to a few over priced shitty options.

      • Weird Fishes

        Honestly I was shocked she flew commercial. Not that I thought she had a G4 at her beck and call, but I would have thought the Kochs or someone else from the right-wing wingding mailing list would have had a spare seat headed that way.

    • Jennaratrix

      Maybe that’s what really happened – the person sitting next to Coulter in her carefully researched, paid for, and pre-booked seat didn’t want to sit next to her.

      • Bud

        Yeah no shit. I’da been like, “Can I sit someplace else like outside the plane or something?”.

    • akita96th

      I think Ann Coulter had her smile surgically removed to make room for them new lines of wrinkles so she can be outraged and still look like a professional turd polisher, and never have to worry about cracking a smile… I also think she buys turd polish by the gallons instead of the usual purse sized compact. Takes a lot of elbow grease to make shit shine on a daily basis…Ya dont want to run out.

    The fact the Ann Coulter seems to think that her time is s-o-o-o valuable is a statement on what’s wrong with America today. Either that, or she needs to get her OCD medications re-evaluated, cuz checking and re-checking a seat assignment that often does not bode well for her recovery.

  • Garbageman

    Some of her best rants actually were left out. She called Delta the ‘worst airline in America’ . . . and JetBlue the best. Admittedly, airline rankings are highly subjective, and often change week-to-week . . . but as someone who has done his share of flying, I can say with 100 percent confidence that no way is Delta the worst – and JetBlue only gets any favorable ratings at all because it’s often the cheapest. If JetBlue charged the same as the others, I doubt many customers would be choosing it . . .

    • Serai 1

      Funny how she CHOSE to book a flight with the “worst” airline.

    • Nasty Candy Apple

      The airlines I’ve flown that were consistently the best were British Airways and Lufthansa. Both were state-owned at the time I flew them. There’s not an American airline that even comes close, in my opinion.

    • justifiable

      Nope – United is the worst. You now have to provide your own in-flight entertainment, and if you haven’t 1) downloaded the United app before the attendants apprise you of that, which is when you’re in your seat and don’t have recourse to terminal wifi and 2) you don’t have an Amazon Prime account to stream video, then you better have something to watch frontloaded or else have brought a good book with you. JetBlue is comparable in price with United, but pets travel for $25 and their fare goes to points – you get nothing with United. JetBlue actually has far better legroom, even in their regular seats, free snacks, and a better beverage selection. In sum, it has a lot more going for it than just its cheapness.

    I read that Ann originally booked a window seat, and then 24 hours before the flight changed it to an aisle seat, which someone else might have been booking at the exact same time somewhere else, and a glitch occurred before the system synced itself. All the rational, intelligent, experienced travelers I know are well aware that if you make last-minute changes to your travel arrangements, something can go wrong. This is normal Ann, have you never traveled before or something? Do you expect special treatment because you are an almost-celebrity?

    This reminds me of a flight I took 2 years ago from St. Louis to Toronto in which a passenger had a severe nut allergy so they gave out bags of pretzels instead of nuts and asked everyone on the plane to please not eat any nuts they might have brought with them. So this dude in the back of plane immediately took out a ziploc bag full of mixed nuts and started eating them. He was sitting right behind the lady with the severe nut allergy. He knew this, so he did it on purpose. Stewards asked if anyone at the front of the plane would change seats with her, and someone immediately offered to do so, which was good because I was about three seconds away from getting up and walking back to the guy and yanking the bag of nuts out of his hand and giving him a piece of my mind and possibly whacking him in the head with the bag if he gave me any lip. What would have happened if I had done that, I wonder??? I will never know.

  • OneWhiteWhisker

        • TundraGrifter

          Yes, but I believe you still have a reasonable expectation of privacy in that you’re image won’t be broadcast around the world because you had the misfortune to play in the same airplane as Ann Coulter. Along with the photo are her nasty remarks.

          • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

            eh, I’m not a lawyer. But just think about it – if that were true, we wouldn’t have all of those videos of people being drunk assholes on planes or being dragged off by security/police for one thing or another.

            I mean, I would expect something like reasonable expectation of privacy would center on places where you could walk around in your underpants (house, hotel room, etc).

            On a plane, you’re in public.

            (looking at class notes)

            a. Unreasonable intrusion upon the seclusion of another.

            i. Basically the intrusion into the private life of another.

            ii. The intrusion must be “highly offensive”.

            iii. If you’re out in public and take a picture of a woman in public. (Out in public and adults). What is your expectation of privacy when you’re out in public? What about if a person is out on the sidewalk and takes a picture of a woman through her bedroom window. Point is she can be viewed from a public sidewalk.

            iv. You have an expectation of privacy in your home, especially in your bedroom. LOOK FOR THIS. Where does this invasion occur. You have much less expectation of privacy out in public.

            One could argue that the people being dragged off the plane are making news. Additionally, they probably benefit from being filmed.

            People being drunk assholes – that’s evidence of a crime or, at least, a potential crime.

            And I often see TV news footage of public events were people’s faces are blurred. Pending a resolution of the accusations.

            It’s an interesting discussion topic.

          • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

            aye, it is interesting.

            But again, being in a plane is not, i think, being in private. It, by definition, can’t be – it’s the same as a bus or a sidewalk.

            I want to take on the TV news angle, cause i used to work in it. And it’s a prime example…are you sure the faces were blurred on news, rather than another show?

            For example, news can and does public photos of accused or trouble makers all the time. However, when I did reality tv, we had to blur faces we didn’t have authorization for, cause we were serving a commercial funciton, not a news function. (which is hte difference between say your evening news and hte show cops).

            Also, just remember, it’s a free speech issue – courts are (or used to be or should be) going to give wiiiide latitude to speaking your mind about something.

            hopefully, one of our wonkette lawyers will swing by and clear this up.

          • TundraGrifter

            The TV news case I had in mind was a jerk who was yelling at a lady who’d put a rainbow flag out in front of her antique store. He returned with a friend for another twenty minutes of abuse and somebody took a photo of them on the sidewalk in front of her store.

          • TX Dept. of Space Tacos

    Still the best Wonkette line ever about Ann Coulter – she was last seen licking a diet Newport.

  • gkshenaut

    The underlying problem here is how uncomfortable and inconvenient air travel has become. If there were enough legroom and elbow room in ordinary seats, and if the plains flew on time and weren’t allowed to overbook routinely, not only would the world be a much better place, but we wouldn’t have to read about (or experience) these continual airliner v. passenger kerfuffles.

    • TundraGrifter

      I fly once or twice a month and here’s the bottom line. You get on and you fly and then you get off. Sometimes there’s nobody next to and sometimes there is. Once in a long time if the ticket is bought at the last minute you have to sit in the middle seat and it sucks. Sometimes there’s a large person next to you and sometimes there’s a cute young lady to talk to. It’s travel.

      When I first flew (as a child) you got a dinner with silverware and there was a neat little package of three or four cigarettes wrapped in gold or silver foil right next to your plate. The fact I was seven or eight years old didn’t matter – I still got the dinner and the smokes. Heck – the planes had smoking and non-smoking sections.

      Get over yourself (and I’m NOT addressing you, gkshenaut, I’m addressing the Ann Coulters of this world and very sadly there is more than one) and go.

      If you don’t like flying – walk.

      • gkshenaut

        There are a few options other than walking. And perhaps you are older than I am—I first flew in the early 1960s as a high school student—but, except for removal of the cigarette smoke, which is an enormous win, the comfort and convenience of flying has been going way down since at least the 1980s. I don’t believe that this decline was or is necessary, and that’s why I demonstrate my annoyance with it when the opportunity presents itself.

        • TundraGrifter

          There’s nothing personal here. I would agree that air travel is not the glamour adventure it once was. It’s generally a cattle call. The TSA idiots are no help at all. Southwest Airlines (and I like Southwest) is BART with drinks.

          As for the decline, keep in mind that across the board, as a group, airlines have never made money. Warren Buffet famously said if a professional investor had been at Kitty Hawk he would have shot down the Wrights Bros.

  • The Flaming Carrot

    $10,000 worth of her time to book a seat? Even if she rejoined BigLaw as a partner, that’s 5 hours to book a seat. Her EA could have done that in 15 minutes.

  • Relativicus

    She took “$10,000 of [her] time” to pick an aisle seat in an exit row. And she had to research the plane as part of her “careful” search for an aisle seat in an exit row.

    This summary brought to you by the letter “Christ, what an asshole.”

    • H0mer0

      why the f did she spend that much time on booking a reservation when her “talents” could be used so much more effectively harassing women at Planned Parenthood or lobbying for more leg room for everyone? (sn-I don’t really want her doing that)

      This was one of the more ridiculous parts of her insanity! If she made anywhere close to that kind of $$, why on earth isn’t she flying business, or using her CC points to upgrade? Is she literally insane, do you think? And she got moved from an aisle to a window IN THE SAME ROW! A window is BETTER!

      • TundraGrifter

    • Donkey Option

      Delta refunded her the cost difference for the seat. And we don’t know why the change was made, but it happens. I’ve had flights completely cancelled on me, or rescheduled, or find that I’ve been moved. It happens, and airlines do what they can to compensate us for our inconvenience. But she still was allowed to be on the flight, in the exit row, and was offered compensation. As someone who flies regularly, she is totally overreacting and considering all the other crap people regularly deal with when flying, she is totally out of line. Especially tweeting pictures of innocent people who didn’t do anything wrong.

    • WIDTAP

      Everyone is in the wrong (except Dok, of course).

      Ann is a dickweed for all-but-doxxing the other passengers. However, I do defend anyone’s right to bitch about the other issue below – bitch, not dox.

      The other passengers are shitmuffins for not going online and picking their seats together ahead of time, and then getting the gate agent to be the muscle and juggle other people’s seat assignments around to accommodate them. If you are rich enough to have frequent traveler status to get what you want with the gate agent, you are rich enough to have a smart phone with internet service to be able to use the app to pick your seats ahead of time. Don’t make you seating preference everyone else’s problem. And if you do, just ask people, don’t just take.

      Which brings us to the gate agent, who is the swine who juggled other people’s seats without bothering to call them up to the desk and letting them know. Sure, it saved you the hassle of dealing with the customer you just screwed out of an aisle seat, but it is a dick move to dump that problem on the flight attendant and the passenger who has already boarded. Deal with it at the gate, asshole. Yeah, I know it’s a pain to explain to a customer that your contract of carriage is one big joke, but that’s Delta’s problem. Live up to it.

      • Donkey Option

        Do you have a source for saying that the passengers didn’t book their seats ahead of time? Everything I’ve been seeing suggests it was a technical glitch where two people picked the same seat at the same time, and she was moving her seat from her originally requested one 24 hours before the flight.

        • WIDTAP

          I am taking Delta’s word on that.

          “At the time of boarding, Delta inadvertently moved Coulter to 15A, a window seat, when working to accommodate several passengers with seating requests.”

          As Delta noted on their website

          • justifiable

            You mean, a seating request change – just like the one Coulter made? So by your logic, we could actually assume that Coulter didn’t book her seat ahead of time?

          • WIDTAP

            No, a gate agent change of seats at time of boarding at the request of other passengers . Gate agents can change any passenger to any seat, whether that seat is already booked and assigned to another passenger or not. When they do that, they moved the displaced passenger to another seat (if any are available). In this case they moved Coulter from 15D to 15A. It appears that the agent did not call Coulter to the desk to tell her of the seat change before boarding, and scanned her old boarding pass when they sent her down the jetway. Coulter says that on the plane the flight attendant took her old boarding passed and informed her that she had been moved to 15A.

            Per Delta, the last change Coulter made to her booking was about 24 hours prior to the scheduled departure. If you travel frequently, you will recognize Coulter’s own change to her seat as buying an upgraded seat during an online check-in. That’s not a seat change request. That is a change in the reservation at time of check-in.

            Coulter is guilty of being a complete asshat about getting bumped from the seat she reserved when she checked in. There isn’t anyone who says that Coulter requested a seat change at the gate.

          • justifiable
      • justifiable

        Yeah, no. I’ve never had a boarding pass with my seat assignment clearly shown on it disregarded – on ANY airline. Ann might have “pre-selected” her seat, but since she apparently changed her carefully chosen and $10,000-of-her-time researched window seat for one on the aisle within 24 hours of flight time, she ran the risk that she might not get what she wanted, especially since she wasn’t upgrading her assignment. She got put in the same damn row, same amount of legroom, in her original choice window seat – just on the left, i.e. LIBERAL, side of the plane. No wonder she reacted so strongly!
        Oh, the horror!

        • WIDTAP

          Lucky you. In this case it appears that the boarding pass that Coulter had in hand had when boarding had the aisle seat assignment.

          “She ran the risk that she might not get what she wanted.”

          Well, that is true for every passenger, regardless of what seat they had or how many times, when or if they changed their seating assignment (you have to read all the little fine print in the contract of carriage).

          I’d didn’t say Delta violated their contract of carriage. I said the gutless wonder of a gate agent did bother to call up the passengers whose seat assignments that they changed, and left it to the flight attendant to sort out after Coulter got to the seat.

          That Courter then acted then like the biggest ass in the world – we are in full agreement.

          • justifiable

            You actually have the option to change your seating at any time, especially in the same row, just by speaking to anyone in reservations – the only restriction I can think of is if you want one of the restricted extra-legroom seats that aren’t open for assignment until 24 hours before flight time. While the difference between a window and aisle seat in extra-legroom is usually pretty slight ($15-20 diff, on United), that window/aisle difference essentially becomes moot when it’s a bulkhead row.

            Delta does cop to “inadvertantly” moving her back to the window seat, opposite side, but that doesn’t make the passengers in question “shitmuffins,” nor does it mean they have the power to bend the gate agent to their evil will and “take” seats from anyone. C’mon – you know better than that. If you can’t book seats together when you buy your tickets, the advice you always get is to ask the gate agent at flight time to see if circumstances have changed. They may have. Coulter’s seat, due to her change, might even have shown as being empty, for all you and I know to the contrary. Apparently there was more than one seating screwup, but the flight attendants seem to have been able to handle it by requesting passengers move to the seats on their respective tickets, so maybe her boarding pass wasn’t as accurate as you think – did she tweet a picture of it? In any event, no one else on the flight seems to have felt outraged, screwed over or otherwise violated because dachshund-legged mutant people took their seats.

            Pathological narcissists see personal slights, injuries and insults everywhere, even in the most innocuous of circumstances – they have no cushion against their eroding self-esteem and the constant need to protect it and prop it up. And since Coulter’s bread and butter is attention-seeking bad behavior, I’d save all my condemnation for her and her recurrent tantrums over nothing, not the hapless gate agent.

          • WIDTAP

            I am not going to disagree with you that Coulter is far and away the asshole here, and the other passengers’ actions seem negligible in comparison. The pictures are shameless, and being slighted with a seat change isn’t anywhere near a justification for the big response, even without the pictures. Yes, no one else acted out like this.

            What I am saying regarding the other passengers is that is self-centered to go to the gate, knowing that you do not have adjacent seats, having a reasonable opportunity to see that those seats are already allocated, and to expect the gate agent to move other passengers for you. Whether you demand someone else seat yourself, or have the gate agent act as your agent, it is rude and presumptuous. Plenty of times I have seen couples traveling together with split seats come onto the plane, and offered to switch to let them sit together or asked by them to switch (follow inevitably after the switch by the guy of the couple making the same joke about being force to sit next to his girlfriend/companion/spouse-of-30-years).

            The best action would have been to go online and select seats together. Second best, ask to switch with another passenger. A little respect for the dignity of those who are not yourself goes a long way. Most people will accommodate you as long as you are not asking them to trade down. That has nothing to do with Ann Coulter and her assholery.

            But if your point is the other passengers only asked in good faith that the gate agent would make such changes with the consent of the other passengers, then I reiterate my third point. These issues should be solved at the gate by the gate agent with all of the affected passengers. Sending passengers down the ramp after having scanned their boarding pass and demanding a seat change (other than an upgrade to first class) when they are on the plane with a line of other passengers in the aisle behind them is a lousy way to run an airline. There is no way for the flight attendant to make everyone happy at that point. After the United debacle, you would think airline would know to solve all seating problems at the gate.

            Nothing excuses Coulter’s behavior. Airlines need to sort seating out at the gate. For God’s Sake, select your seats before you go to the airport, and be considerate of other people if you want their seat on the plane.

          • justifiable

            Again, you have NO idea what anyone said to the gate agent, nor what the seating availability looked like at that point, so to call those three passengers “self-centered” and then accuse them of having no respect for the dignity of anyone else on board because they “demanded” another’s seat or else didn’t select their seats at some point that meets with your approval, and then somehow forced the agent to change their seats without any thought for anyone else, is a massive stretch. At this point you’re fulminating with insufficient data, because AFAIK there’s no proof any of that went down.

            And regarding the Rules According To Me Which Are The Only Rules To Live By airline etiquette book you seem to be working on so diligently: something that you think is no big deal for you, often is for others. If you happen to speak English poorly, or with an accent, and you’re not lily-white in appearance or come from a culture where direct contact with strangers isn’t something you’re comfortable with, then it can be daunting to request people to change their seats in this sort of situation. So yeah, it’s often much less stressful to ask an airline rep to handle it for you if it’s possible to change your seat. If you consider that a hallmark of being inconsiderate, you really do need to guess again.

    Free market, ann, free market. Missing from this story is why the seat trade was made, but having said that, I think Delta should hold the line and not say anything.

    I just had a woman sitting next to me on the morning train who puked everywhere trying to get off the train. She turned away from me to get up, so I was just out of the splash zone. I’m not trying to share something gross, but it got me to thinking – the woman who needed the aisle seat possibly had a medical issue where she might have needed to got to the bathroom quickly or something. I hardly think Delta moved ann to a window to spite her. So I offer a plausible theory to consider. She’s just an awful person and I feel sorry for anyone sitting next to her or around her during this flight.

    • JustDon’tSaySortMyBalls

      Probably something like that. But can we at least pretend Delta felt like fucking with AC? The thought makes me happy…

    • phoenix00

      DL shouldn’t have moved her without permission if you paid in advance for seat selection. That much I’m with her on. After the incident I’m with Delta – she shouldn’t have outed those passengers and flight attendant and gone shrill harpy on TW. She was owed an apology and the $30 seat selection fee back, anything else is gravy.

      (Actually if Coulter hadn’t gone shrill harpy, DL would likely have offered a flight voucher or Skymiles as further compensation, so yeah she got her just desserts)

  • Ants In My Eyes Johnson

    Does Coulter normally fly economy, or is this to gin up some news right before something she’s getting paid for comes out?

    • mancityRed6

  • Duke

    I see she’s whining about how much money her time is worth. I do have to wonder what she’d be doing during that time and why she wasn’t doing that and booking a first class seat. Or, better, yet, booking a first class seat, making her time billable and turing a profit on the deal. .

    • LucindathePook

      What I wonder is at that hourly rate, how much her twitterstorm is costing her.

  • Mormos

    no one cares about you anymore Ann, fade back into the ether of hate that spawned you.

  • alpacapunchbowl

    This story just keeps getting better and better! This is the first I had heard that she didn’t even get moved to a crappy seat, plus her getting even saltier about the refund. Jesus fuckin’ christ, lady.

  • You know, she could have just sent a strongly-worded email to the management of Delta using the email application on her phone, keeping everything private and dignified. Instead, she decided to have a self-righteous hissy fit on Twitter. Says something.

    • justifiable

      Yeah, it says that she’s an abomination.

    • phoenix00

      Actually given the presence of social media teams at most major airlines oftentimes getting things resolved over TW is one of the fastest ways to go.

      What Coulter shouldn’t have done is out the passengers and the flight cabin attendant over said social media. THAT was the major dick move. I’m sure Delta would have offered a flight voucher or Skymiles as compensation if she hadn’t done her usual Ann Coulter thing.

      • I am an old, and I don’t grok the getting yelly at brands over the twitters.

        • phoenix00

          Well you don’t yell at them per se – it’s simply another customer service contact method. They’ll respond to anything from lost bags to flat-tire-on-the-way-to-airport-please-rebook to “Where’s my plane? It’s been delayed 3 hours and I have a connection afterwards”

          • Interesting. I’ve never really even thought that might be appropriate, before. Because, well, the only examples of it I ever see are ones like this.

          • phoenix00

            Truth be told, the reason the social media teams are there is to diffuse the most explosive situations, but hey, to me it beats burning Obamaphone minutes waiting on hold or playing e-mail tag.

      • justifiable

        Yeah, but you have to understand that with Coulter the attention is key – she’d gladly sacrifice any amount of vouchers for airtime or whatever else her tweets or twats or whatever will bring. Good or bad attention, it makes no difference, since she really isn’t vested in winning anyone who skews left to her side, and she’s confident that she can spin anything negative just short of child molestation to her mentally-challenged, kneejerk Fox-watchin’ audience. What she also counts on is using outrage from anyone who doesn’t love her to style herself as an oppressed victim who’s being martyred in her quest to speak the truth, complete with wrapping herself in the flag as a finale.

        She’s not all that intelligent, but then neither is her prime audience – if they weren’t subject to massive mental disconnects and quite possibly untreated venereal disease, they would have torn her apart after she called the 9/11 widows “self-obsessed harpies” because some of them criticized Bush. After all “these broads are millionaires” now that their stupid husbands were dead, so what did they have to complain about? I guess that so-called devotion to family values only goes so far.

        • phoenix00

          Only intelligent enough to grift off her deplorable base. Too right on all counts.

  • Donkey Option

    One – I am so happy to be flying Delta on all my flights. I’m a very happy and loyal customer. Two – either she is incredibly slow or she lies about how much money she makes, because she didn’t even book comfort or business class? I’m just sorry for anyone so unlucky that they would be forced to sit near her on a flight.

    • mancityRed6

      I dunno, if I was next to the Coulter seething with rage, that would probably be the best flight of my life.
      how could you stop laughing?

      • alpacapunchbowl

        Eeh, I’d wanna be somehow prepared for that, I think. And largely depends on the length of the flight.

Because I have news for her – “investigating” the type of plane and then choosing a seat from what’s available ain’t exactly time-consuming, nor is it rocket science. And it sure as shit won’t help her determine whether that model plane will be cram-full of Mooslim terrorists or creepy Asians.

      I normally do not like it when people are made fun of because of things they cannot control, like their looks.

      That being said, Juan de Fuca, your Ann Coulter “preparation” jokes are some of the funniest things I’ve read in a while. I literally burst out laughing, with my wife looking at me askance as if I’d lost my marbles…which I have.

        Ann Coulter should be publicly mocked at every opportunity. Even if it means staying away from appearances and reminding her that she has about as much political influence as Jake from State Farm.

        Maybe just a simple, “Just sit down and enjoy your flight back here with us common folk” would work just as well..

    More details on Coulter Seat War here:
    “Coulter had originally booked a window seat in an exit row, an airline spokesman wrote: 15F — a comfy seat with extra leg room.
    Less than 24 hours before takeoff, according to the airline, Coulter switched her selection to 15D — an aisle seat in the same row.
    “At the time of boarding,” the statement continues, “Delta inadvertently moved Coulter to 15A, a window seat, when working to accommodate several passengers with seating requests.”
    So, Coulter went back to a window seat — still in the same row; just the opposite side of the plane. Her new seat had exactly the same amount of legroom, an airline spokesman told The Post.”

    I think her mouth, and tweeting hand, should be in “101 new uses for duct tape.”

She called the woman “given” the seat she thought she owned a woman with “dachshund” legs! She is taking the idea of “leggy blonde” to ridiculous extremes. Also, my 6’2″ husband only has an inseam one inch longer than mine.

I guess it’s just inflation. And she didn’t pay for an extra seat to be held empty for her, so what’s the problem? And if she truly wants lotsa legroom, why isn’t she flying first class? Assuredly someone whose time is soooo valuable can afford first class, am I right? Or, better yet, why doesn’t she hire a private plane, which I’m sure she can afford? Better solution: tie helium balloons to her armpit hairs. (I sent all of these suggestions directly to her but have heard nothing back from her. Poor widdle Annie.)

    $10,000 worth of time to book a flight? Either she is too stupid to figure out booking in a timely manner or she overvalues her hourly worth. Either way, she should be flying with netjet rather than with the hoy polloi.

    I can see her on the Titanic: You need to let me on that lifeboat. I booked two tickets in steerage!

      It seems we (well, I – everyone else might have already put this together, I do show up late to the party a lot] have stumbled upon one reason for Coulter’s support of tRump [(t) random actors hired to play Trump supporters] – it is not just the lagomorph-rodent hybrids that occupy that part of her brain that controls her communication, it is that they have a common method of padding their personal_worth/bottom_line. “If I do it, ti is worth thousands,” says Coulter. She spent, what, an hour total figuring out exactly which seat she wanted? Yeah, $10K value added to seat price. Trump overvalues his, well, everything with the reasoning “If I own it it is worth a few extra million” along with the corollary, “My name is worth millions on any edifice or other brandable item or idea, therefore I am worth my bottom line plus [$million * n] where ‘n’ is whatever I feel like it is today.” That’s assuming Trump can actually *do* math, but he is capable of figuring inflation by spitting out big numbers. (obvious joke, here – also capable of inflation by sucking down burnt steaks and McDonalds)

    My goodness. With all those tweets, it appears Ann has her next book just about written. Her last few apparently didn’t do that well or she would have been able to fly First/Business Class. Or at least hitch a ride on some oligarch’s private jet (But I guess they don’t find her useful anymore either). If Bill’s desperate for a guest, she might use this to get back on Real Time…

    Ok Coulters not a dude but can we call her a crazy cat lady , not that she got cats , probably thinks they’re freeloading bludgers , I just have this image of her dying alone and one of her cats nawing on whatever meat is left on her bones
    Btw , I like cats ,not in a crazy way

    • Maybe

      She does not have cats. Cats don’t kowtow.

      • ralphteb

        True

  • AngryNotSoOldHippy .

    She’s as stupid as any man is, though, that counts for something.

    • Magginkat

      Perhaps that’s because (s)he is a man? DAnn Coulter?

  • Poly_Ester

    Shouldn’t the headline read “Oppressive Snowflake”?

    • javadavis

      She and all her friends do make a super-white blizzard.

    Ooooh Annie, you just got burned by CAPTAIN AMERICA.

  • Maybe

    She really doesn’t like women, does she?

    I mean, she doesn’t much like anyone, but she reserves her special, top-shelf bile for women–especially the way they look.

    Trump is very bad news for Coulter, who like Rush Limberger etc, have made a sort of fame out of being outrageous. like a sour pickle can be ok on the side.

    But Trump and co are NATURALLY far more outrageous. It’s not an act with Trump.
    AC needs to ratchet things up quite a bit. Maybe confess to being a Russian illegal like the soccer mom a few years back, whose entire background, school etc, was fake.

    Her coming out (not sexual, Doc! I’ve had my warning) could begin like this:

    “It was a warm July evening around midnight when the Murmansk class submarine surfaced a mile off the California coast, and I prepared to enter my new life.’

    If charged or even investigated she’d say: ‘I made that shit up, idiot. Haven’t you followed my career? I demand to speak to a qualified interrogator. Water boarding? Who?

  • Maybe

    So it cost her $10,000 of her time to book her seat (not very efficient, Annie.

    I have to wonder just who offered to pay that much?

  • Kitty Smith

    WOw that dipshit really is overpaid.

  • Guest Liberal

    Don’t they usually empty the Anne Coulter over the ocean, shortly after meal time?
