Ann Coulter asks on Twitter: Did Hillary Clinton have Bernie Sanders supporters ‘gassed’?


(JTA) — Conservative political pundit Ann Coulter has come under fire on social media for tweeting after Hillary Clinton was nominated as the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee, “Where are the Bernie supporters tonight? Did Hillary have them gassed?”

Coulter was slammed for her choice of image in the Twitter post on Tuesday night during the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.


“Deliberate choice of words. Antisemitism gets the sick attention this narcissist seeks,” was one reply.

Coulter is no stranger to anti-Semitic controversy.

During a Republican debate last September, Coulter tweeted “how many f***ing Jews do these people think there are in the United States?” She later doubled down on the tweet, calling it “pro-Semitic.”
