Ann Coulter Condemned For Joke Implying Hurricane Harvey Is Punishment For Houston Electing Lesbian Mayor

As thousands of Houston residents struggled to survive the rising floodwaters caused by Hurricane Harvey, Ann Coulter decided it was time to Tweet her conservative opinions about homosexuality in a poorly timed tweet in response to a Politico article titled: “Harvey is What Climate Change Looks Like”.

‘I don’t believe Hurricane Harvey is God’s punishment for Houston electing a lesbian mayor. But that is more credible than “climate change,”‘ tweeted the notorious far-right pundit, who called Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards a “faggot” back in 2008.

The unprompted reference to former Mayor of Houston Annise Parker, who served as Mayor until 2016 and faced a string of homophobic smears during her time in office, was condemned by social media users who noted that her comments come as tens of thousands of Texans have been displaced from their homes and as Harvey’s death toll climbed to at least 14 victims.

Parker has three children with her wife Kathy Hubbard.
