Coulter’s comments were reportedly made in response to a question about an incident that occurred on Tuesday when Coulter refused to hug an undocumented immigrant during an audience Q&A on the cable network Fusion.
“When I’m in charge of immigration (after our 10 year moratorium), I will not admit overweight girls,” Coulter told Breitbart.
During her appearance on Fusion, Coulter was asked by undocumented Ecuadorian immigrant Gaby Pacheco whether she could give Coulter a hug as “as a sign of my humanity and yours.”
Coulter rejected the request, saying she had a cold and coughing loudly before saying: “Let’s get on with the question.”
Coulter was on the network to promote her book “Adios America.”
