Analyzing the biggest winners and losers of a presidential Republican debate is a standard media practice. However, since almost all the candidates have failed to impress prospective voters so far this year, it’s more a question of who was the biggest loser.
And the answer – following the second GOP debate hosted by CNN – is simple.

It didn’t end there. Coulter, who has endorsed Donald Trump, accused Mike Huckabee of running for the president of Israel instead of the U.S.
Good grief! Huckabee is running for PM of Israel.— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) September 17, 2015
Cruz, Huckabee Rubio all mentioned ISRAEL in their response to: "What will AMERICA look like after you are president."— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) September 17, 2015
She somewhat tried to change course of her rant:

And closed off with the following tweet:
How to get applause from GOP donors: 1) Pledge to start a war 2) Talk about job creators 3) Denounce abortion 4) Cite Reagan 5) Cite Israel.— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) September 17, 2015
Although this isn’t the first time Coulter’s comments have sparked controversy, it's surely surprising coming from her, who once wanted to replace President Barack Obama with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu:
