Coulter mockingly asked where all the racists are that liberals keep talking about. Maher brought up a 2008 poll finding in one swing state that a surprising number of Americans are not ready for a black president, and asked Coulter how she could possibly believe that racism is mostly gone. She pointed to polls that found many Americans are not ready for a Mormon president either.
Maher also challenged Coulter’s belief that Obama is the “most liberal” politician to run on a major party ticket for the presidency. Coulter pointed to the Affordable Care Act, which she deemed the “most liberal thing that has been done by any president,” even including Social Security. But back on the racism front, Coulter charged that “liberals are very racist,” citing attacks from the left on Clarence Thomas, Mia Love, and Stacey Dash.
