Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has come out in defense of hot-headed actor Alec Baldwin, who was suspended from his MSNBC talk show for using a gay slur against a photographer.

"They shouldn't have suspended him," Coulter, author of the new book, "Never Trust a Liberal Over Three — Especially a Republican," told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"In defense of Alec Baldwin, … [the] photographer, he's not actually gay. This was just a curse word. It was like using the f-word and, frankly, a lot of these paparazzi photographers deserve it."

Story continues below video.



As Baldwin chewed out journalists for pursuing him and his wife last week following the trial of a woman who was stalking him, he uttered a two-word, anti-gay vulgarity.

The "30 Rock" star later apologized, insisted he was only trying to protect his family from the media scrum and promised never to say it again. But MSNBC suspended him for two weeks.

"It's not something Alec Baldwin said in a calm moment on television," Coulter said.

"He has been harassed horribly by photographers and now this stalker, and he's trying to protect his family and he curses. That is what happened."

Turning to the healthcare debate, Coulter believes the Obama administration is living in a dream world if they believe the Affordable Care Act will eventually be embraced.

"From reading the New York Times coverage they seem to be intent on assuring Democrats, no don't worry, you don't have to vote to repeal this, just hang on, everybody's going to like it eventually," Coulter said.

"I don't think everybody is going to like it … So I don't know, we might be able to get Obamacare repealed even before Republicans take the Senate as I hope they will."
