Ann Coulter, author of Resistance Is Futile!: How the Trump-Hating Left Lost Its Collective Mind, revealed an encounter she had with Jeffrey Epstein in 2001, recalling the incidental meeting on Thursday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with host Rebecca Mansour and special guest host John Binder.
Coulter remembered, “I had my own encounter with Jeffrey Epstein, and before I give you this little vignette, it’s very important I tell you something. All of my friends know I have absolutely no radar on freaks on weird people. I’m a terrible judge of character. When I first meet someone, I’m not allowed to invite anyone from a book signing to have drinks with us because I’ve done it so many times, and we end up with some bipolar lunatic. So anyone who knows me will tell I cannot judge people.”
Coulter shared the context of her brush with Epstein: “To make a long story short — pouring rain, day before 9/11, I’m leaving for speeches, I can’t get home, my editor died, book was canceled…It turned out to be the number one book all summer — anyway, I’m standing outside the funeral home, it’s pouring rain, traffic all over, no cab. So this stretch limo pulls up, and a guy leans out. He knows me by name, says who he is, names someone that we know in common — which, by the way, wouldn’t be that great a recommendation guide; she hangs around sleazy guys — but I think to myself, ‘Okay, I just need to go 20 blocks to the Upper East Side.”
