CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Ann Coulter slams Gov. Rauner as ‘retarded’ – Mark Brown
http://chicago.suntimes.com/news/brown-ann-coulter-slams-gov-rauner-as-retarded/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Conservative provocateur Ann Coulter gave Gov. Bruce Rauner’s first national television interview a bad review Friday, telling her 1.6 million Twitter followers that Rauner “either is retarded or playing retard.”  “His answer to every Q is, “Our system is broken.” Fascinating!” Coulter tweeted during an interview on FOX News Channel by host Bret Baier. Rauner was his normal evasive self, sidestepping Baier’s questions about President Trump, Chicago’s sanctuary city status and Obamacare. At one point, Baier seemed frustrated by his inability to get direct answers to his questions, but never called him out directly.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Ann Coulter takes shot at Gov. Rauner – Gregory Pratt
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-coulter-retarded-rauner-20170811-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Gov. Bruce Rauner gave a rare national interview to Fox News host Bret Baier on Friday that led conservative commentator Ann Coulter to sling a harsh insult Rauner’s way.  Rauner discussed illegal immigration and the state budget crisis on the program, and deflected  several questions. On Twitter, critics pounced, including Democratic state Rep. Christian Mitchell, who said on Twitter that Rauner did a “bellyflop.” But so far, the harshest criticism comes from Coulter, who attacked Rauner with her well-known brand of flame-throwing and sarcasm in a tweet. .@GovRauner either is retarded or is playing retard on @BretBaier. His answer to every Q is, “Our system is broken.” Fascinating!”  The word “retarded,” once ubiquitous as an insult, is now widely considered offensive. A spokeswoman for Rauner declined comment.)
