Killing Ann Coulter With Thoughtful Kindness She Clearly Doesn't Deserve

Abby Zimet

When the repulsive troll and attention whore known as Ann Coulter took to Twitter after the last debate to call Obama "the retard" - and when called on it doubled down - someone who "was bullied as a child by people like you" had had enough. John Franklin Stephens, a 30-year-old Special Olympian with Down syndrome, wrote her an open letter way smarter, kinder and memorable than she will ever be. 

"Well, Ms. Coulter, you, and society, need to learn that being compared to people like me should be considered a badge of honor...No one overcomes more than we do and still loves life so much."
