Republican fire-brand and Trump supporter Ann Coulter has claimed that hurricane Harvey and the subsequent floods that have swept across parts of Texas and devastated Houston are a punishment from God to America for legalizing same-sex marriage.
Ann Coulter, who is the author of “In Trump We Trust” and wants Trump to remove “all foreigners and Muslims” from the United States made the ridiculous comments, pointing out that at one point Houston elected a Lesbian Mayor Annise Parker.
However, the stunned former Mayor Ms Parker after hearing the comments said, “Darn it, I didn’t know I had control over the weather.” The former Mayor refused to go into a spat with Ann Coulter and declined to comment further on the speculation by Ms Coulter and Trump supporters that the hurricane and floods are a punishment from God.
