Ann Coulter, the conservative commentator, was being Ann Coulter on Twitter again last night.
Quote re-tweeting a Politco article about Hurricane Harvey’s proof of climate change, she said something astounding.
She claimed it’s ‘more credible’ that Harvey is ‘God’s punishment for Houston electing a lesbian mayor’ than climate change.
I don't believe Hurricane Harvey is God's punishment for Houston electing a lesbian mayor. But that is more credible than "climate change." https://t.co/K7d7mopY5Q

On the other hand, perhaps it’s not too astounding.
After all, this is certainly not the first time Coulter has been under fire for her homophobic comments.
In 2011, on an episode of The A List, she said gay people have to be pro-life. She followed that up explaining: ‘As soon as they find the gay gene, guess who the liberal yuppies are gonna start aborting?’
A year later, she claimed civil rights are ‘for blacks, not gays’ in an interview.
Further in 2012, she said the Monday after National Coming Out Day is ‘national disown your son day’.
The mayor Coulter is referring to in yesterday’s tweet is Annise Parker, who served from 2010 to 2016. She married her partner in 2014.
People haven’t been quiet with their criticism of the tweet, either.

God punishing a lesbian is more credible than climate impacting extreme weather? K. pic.twitter.com/ctKTF9y4b6
