Ann Coulter is still circling the runway looking for answers.
The right-wing firebrand entered day four of her tantrum against Delta Air Lines on Tuesday, demanding to know why the “unbelievably arrogant” airline had given her extra-room seat away.
“It was not an elderly person, a sickly person, a very tall person,” Coulter told the hosts of “Fox and Friends.” “It’s been three days now, and Delta still hasn’t given an explanation, much less an apology.”
“I mean, they’ve had four days to investigate. Why did they do this?” she later griped. “Yes, it’s not the worst thing in the world, but is it that hard for Delta employees to simply be polite and simply give passengers the seat that they booked? Is that such a high hurdle?”
Six-foot-tall Coulter launched a days-long Twitter tirade Saturday against Delta — in her words, “the worst airline in America” — after employees booted her from an “extra-room seat.”
“It was before boarding; I’d picked out the seat I wanted. I was in the waiting area, boarding area, for 90 minutes,” Coulter said Tuesday. “And then as I was boarding, the ticket agent snatched the ticket out of my hand and said, ‘No, we’ve given you a different seat.’ And I said ‘Why?’ and she said, ‘Emergency.’”
The pundit wound up trying to sit in her original seat anyway, she told Fox News.
“(The) stewardess asked for our tickets and I said, ‘Well, this was the seat I booked but they moved me to another seat I don’t want,’ and she said, ‘You have to move,’ and I said, ‘But why?’ and she said, ‘I don’t know,’” Coulter chronicled.
Delta later apologized, offered Coulter a $ 30 refund and said her “insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary.”
“They’re lying so much about this — that was one of the snarky tweets they sent out,” Coulter said. “No, it’s not about the $ 30. You gave me a more cramped seat.”
Coulter would have gladly moved for an elderly person or air marshal, she added — and only tweeted a photo of the “dachshund-legged woman” who landed the coveted seat because she “knew Delta would lie about it.”
In a lengthier statement posted to its website, the airline acknowledged it had “inadvertently” moved her seat but also slammed her “derogatory and slanderous comments and photos in social media.”
“I didn’t insult their employees,” Coulter insisted. “I admit I did insult their airline — but I insulted them, really, by describing what they did.”
The author and commentator has found support from fans in her crusade against Delta, but also widespread mockery: “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah, for example, branded her “the airplane Rosa Parks.”
“I totally get it,” tweeted actor Chris Evans. “It costs me 75k to brush my teeth. I must pre-select a brush, investigate types of paste, and periodically spit bulls–t.”
By Tuesday afternoon, Coulter had tweeted a screenshot of text messages claiming a Delta employee had “targeted Ann on purpose.”
“BEWARE OF @DELTA REPUBLICANS,” she wrote. “Texts from a flight attendant: It was political. @Delta still won’t give a reason.”
