ICYMI, the conservative was promoting her new book Adios America!: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country Into a Third-World Hellhole where she shares her extremely polarizing views on immigration.
On the daytime talk show, Coulter said :
“We’re bringing in millions and millions of people from very poor cultures, from very backwards cultures. Our social programs are for the American poor… The majority of immigrants are on welfare! … We don’t need to be importing other countries’ poor people.”
As an immigrant herself, Miz Lakshmi was completely disgusted by the 53-year-old’s opinions.
The foodie said:
“She has a right to her own opinion… I don’t agree with a lot of her views, and I don’t agree with them for some very vehement reasons, especially on immigration. So I just thought, ‘I have to be graceful,’ because I have a limit — she may not have that limit.”‘
However, she did admit:
“I was thinking, ‘Lord, please don’t let me slap a bitch on national TV.'”
