Conservative author Ann Coulter is notorious for her outlandish commentary, so when she took to Twitter to call her life a pool of “quiet desperation” in an attempt to bash the Republicans’ tax plan, social media was abuzz with jokes.
We singles live empty lives of quiet desperation and will die alone. Now Rubio is demanding that we also fund happy families with children who fill their days with joy.— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) December 15, 2017
To Coulter, the idea that happy couples experiencing the wonders of caring for their little bundles of joy were getting tax breaks was just too much, so she decided to tell the world just why the idea is bad.
Instead of simply making a snarky comment about Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) and moving on, Coulter bashed herself while making her case against the Florida senator’s attempt to give more poor families increased access to the Child Tax Credit.
Saying that her life was filled with “quiet despair” and that she will die alone, the political commentator saved everybody the trouble of coming up with new names for her in light of her cold-hearted politics.
On Twitter, folks were overjoyed with her comments.
My favorite thing about Ann Coulter is she believes her desperation is quiet. https://t.co/n9fvn5RRc4— Louis Virtel (@louisvirtel) December 15, 2017
Ann Coulter is using the excuse that she's "lonely" as a reason why she shouldn't pay taxes for people who take on the responsibility of raising our country's future leaders. I personally don't think the middle class should be responsible for funding lonely rich people like her. pic.twitter.com/bjIwWMqwTR— Ed Krassenstein (@EdKrassen) December 15, 2017

Still, regardless of her concerns, Rubio’s original plan didn’t work out, and he decided to join the “Yay” crowd in Congress in exchange for a small tweak in the bill’s child tax credit wording that makes $1,400 of the $2,000 child tax credit refundable instead of $1,100, which was what was in the original draft.
So don’t worry, Coulter. You will still be able to live your “empty” life of “quiet despair” without having to worry (too much) about happy families getting a break.
