Ann Coulter tweeted her defense for Robert De Niro on Tuesday after the actor came under criticism for a joke he quipped at a fundraiser for First Lady Michelle Obama.
De Niro kicked off a New York City fundraiser in support of the First Lady Monday night by joking about the wives of the GOP candidates. “Callista Gingrich. Karen Santorum. Ann Romney,” De Niro said. “Now do you really think our country is ready for a white first lady?”
