You almost have to feel sorry for her. You know Ann Coulter just can't help being a troll. But sometimes, the collective Internet needs to give her a swift troll right back.
After Coulter decided to mock the #BringBackOurGirls movement, and specifically First Lady Michelle Obama's tweet about it, right down to the somber expression, the Web was in no mood. Coulter's #BringBackOurCountry tweet backfired just as quickly as Obama's.
Coulter was called out for her general approach to public discourse -- miserableness -- and even inspired her own hashtag: #CoulterShaming.

Really, you're mad at Ann Coulter? You fall for this every time? You might as get mad at mud.— Ben Schwartz (@benschwartzy) May 13, 2014
