Ann Coulter: Sharks may dominate the media -- but it's the Mexicans who will really kill you

"I will bet you that more Americans will be killed by Mexicans than by ISIS or by sharks," she said

On Sunday's edition of "Fox & Friends," Ann Coulter continued to plug her book "Adios, America" by comparing it to every other story in the news, this time telling Tucker Carlson and his cohorts that Mexican immigrants are far more dangerous than the coastal sharks currently dominating the news cycle.

She began, however, by arguing that Donald Trump's recent comments were vindicated by the Wednesday murder of Kate Steinle in San Francisco by Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, an undocumented immigrant who has been deported five times.

"I’m dying to know if Jeb Bush attacks Donald Trump for his comments the actual day she was murdered by an illegal immigrant or the next day," Coulter said. "I gather he won't be speaking at her funeral."

When she was done politicizing this poor woman's untimely death, Coulter attacked the media for reporting on stories unrelated to her pet issue. "Going into this weekend," she said, "the media was consumed with stories -- 'Americans have to be on the lookout for ISIS attacks' and 'Terror attacks expected' and 'Shark attacks.'"

"I will bet you that by the end of the weekend, more Americans will have been killed by Mexicans than by ISIS or by sharks."

Coulter further claimed that the only reason that Steinle's death received any attention at all is "that it happened someplace liberals might go." Usually such crimes are "covered up" because, she argued, most "Americans are killed and raped in places that liberals don't go -- they just take the cheap labor."
