Conservative commentator and author Ann Coulter used the recent “sequester” cuts to make a fat joke about New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who was not invited to the American Conservative Union’s Conservative Political Action Conference.
Mocking the idea that the $85 billion in automatic cuts to defense and domestic programs that were set into motion on March 1 are going to be devastating, Ms. Coulter said the cuts limited the number of people invited to speak at the three-day event.
“Even CPAC had to cut back on speakers this year by about 300 pounds,” she said, alluding to Mr. Christie, who was not invited to the gathering just outside the Washington Beltway.
“Did you see his convention speech? It was really bad,” she said, before adding. “I am now a single issue voter against amnesty.”
“So Christie is off my list,” she said.
