Ann Coulter's sarcastic comments landed her in controversies

The former MSNBC legal correspondent Ann Coulter's journey from being a Law Clerk in Kansas City to a prominent name in American media carries a lot of controversies with it. Her long list of controversies began in January 2005 when she said "Canada used to be one of our most most loyal friends and Vice Versa. I mean, Canada sent troops to Vietnam. Was Vietnam less containable and more of a threat than Saddam Hussein?" 

Her comments raised few eyebrows as Canada has not sent any troops to Vietnam. Later Coulter cleared the confusion through Washington Journal in 2005 stating "The Canadian government didn't sent troops but they came and fought with the Americans. So I was wrong. It turns out that there were 10000 American who happened to born in Canada". 

Ann Coulter slammed the Islams, terrorism and Arabs following the 9/11 attacks. "We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity" said Coulter three the after the attacks. 

Following the horrific attacks of 9/11 Coulter blamed Muslims for such brutal attack which resulted in 7000 people in dead in 2 hours. "Not all Muslims may be terrorist, but all terrorist are Muslims," Coulter said in the aftermath of that terrifying September day. 

Another controversy for which Coulter remained in the headlines was Paula Jones and Bill Clinton case. She played a vital role in unmasking the 42nd President of the United States. The case later grabbed the headlines and revealed several twists. 

On September 1997 the case was in line to drop as Jones lawyer Joseph Cammaratta advised Jones to settle rather than fight for her 'Weak' case. Coulter played a huge role in keeping the case alive as she believed settling for money would ruin her reputation and give the impression that she was just interested in luring the money from the President. 

The author of If Democrats Had Any Brain, They'd be Republicans was later accused by American Investigative Journalist Michael Isikoff. In his book, Isikoff stated mentioned Coulter saying " We were terrified that Jones would settle. It was contrary to our purpose of bringing down the President." 

Following the release of his book, Coulter mentioned her motive in unmasking the president saying "It's not like we secretly disliked Clinton because of his administration's position on California's Citrus cartles or something, and then set to work on some crazy scheme to destroy him using a pathological intern as our Mata Hari". 

Besides these, Coulter was engaged in another controversy when she called John Edward a 'Faggot' while he was running for President in 2008. Another controversy came in March 2010 when she said "take a camel" to a Muslim students who refreshed Coulters comments on Muslims " Muslims should not be allowed on airplanes". 

Controversies have always been stirred in American media personality Ann Coulter's career. Since beginning her career in the 1990's she has come up against numerous controversies and criticisms, but despite that Coulter has cemented her place as one of the prominent names in the American media.
