Ann Coulter decided it was a good idea to go on ABC's "The View," but not even Republican Elisabeth Hasselbeck backed her up.
The conservative commentator and author went on the show to promote her new book, "Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama," and to give the hosts a history lesson, or at least, her version of history.

Coulter claimed President Barack Obama abandoned black Americans and said the 1995 trial of O.J. Simpson was when the "white guilt bank closed down." She also called the 1970s and 1980s a "golden era" for white guilt, saying it was like "Trayvon Martin every day," and that liberals use race to promote causes that are harmful to African-Americans.
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg had had enough just one minute into the interview.
"Hold up Ms. Coulter! Please stop, please stop. If you're gonna talk about race at least, at least know what you're talking about. Tell me how much you know about being black," Goldberg said.
"This isn't about being black," Coulter replied.
"You just made all these statements about how black people feel."
"No, I didn't," Coulter stated. "This isn't a book about black people. It's a book about white liberals."
Coulter went on to say, "I don't think liberals ever cared about black people."
Sherri Shepherd retorted, "Are you saying Republicans embrace us in a warm fuzzy blanket?"
"We aren't embraced back. But we try to," Coulter stated.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Coulter claimed liberals fabricated the Republicans' "Southern Strategy" -- an electoral strategy originally implemented by Richard Nixon to take advantage of racial resentment in the South -- and said Democratic segregationists were all liberals.
Goldberg couldn't contain herself. She exclaimed, "Everyone was a segregationist! What are you talking about? Bullsh**! Bullsh**!" Her cussing was bleeped out.
"Just read Chapter 14 in this book," Coulter responded.
"I'm not reading Chapter 14, I'm listening to my grandmother who was there and who remembers what happened," Goldberg answered back.
Barbara Walters asked the author if she just wrote books to be controversial; however, Coulter didn't really answer the question. Or maybe, she didn't really get the chance to.
Walters then credited Coulter for coming on the show and being berated by five women.
