Ann Coulter on Ted Cruz Gun Photo: Don't Insult Our Intelligence

By    |   Tuesday, 23 Jun 2015 07:02 PM

Conservative author Ann Coulter isn't buying the Associated Press' story that it didn't intend anything symbolic in a photo it sent out of Sen. Ted Cruz positioned with a drawing of a pistol appearing to point at his forehead.

The AP's vice president and director of media relations Paul Colford, said "the images were not intended to portray Sen. Cruz in a negative light."

"That is so outrageous. Don't insult our intelligence by saying we didn't even notice," Coulter said Monday on Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File."

Story continues below video.


"It had to get by the photographer and the photographer had to take the picture," host Megyn Kelly added. " The editor had to OK the picture."

Cruz is a Republican presidential candidate and Second Amendment advocate. Coulter and Kelly both found it unlikely such a picture would have been sent over the wire service had it been of President Barack Obama.

Twitter posters responded to the controversy as well:



In fact, Kelly noted, the AP has taken pictures of Obama with government seals behind his head that were out of focus, making them look like halos.
