Ann Coulter is probably still smarting from her lame attempt at highjacking the #BringBackOurGirls campaign backfiring on twitter, so she ran to the loving arms of Sean Hannity for a little aid and comfort this Wednesday evening on Faux "news."

Coulter continued her ugly attacks on the Obama administration's foreign policy, and on first lady Michelle Obama for her participation in the campaign, and managed to throw in a little Benghazi Derangement Syndrome to boot.

COULTER: It’s utterly pathetic and embarrassing. I mean, this guy Obama has done to America in eight years what it took 100 years to happen to the British empire. We are retreating all of the world. China's about to take total hegemony of the Pacific rim. We have Israel leaving us. They're moving on. Now they're pals with China.

The Middle East is falling apart. We've lost our power throughout the world and these idiots think that a hashtag is some major policy initiative. How about, Michelle Obama have hashtag, I'm married to an idiot?

Anyone remember the days when saying something like that about his hero George W. Bush would have had Hannity screaming to the hills about how you're not supposed to say bad things about the Commander in Chief? Apparently those rules don't apply now. The rest was a big healthy dose of revisionist history and more name calling, with the two of them doing their best to pretend that any and all problems with our foreign policy began when the "blah" guy got elected.

Can you help us out?
