Coulter Appears on TODAY Show, Delighted There Is No Ban From NBC

Ann Coulter and NBC made peace as she appeared on this morning’s TODAY show with Matt Lauer.

Lauer told the conservative author and pundit that he was glad that she was back, and she replied “So am I” with a smile.

“You’re not banned for life,” Lauer added.

“I’m delighted to hear that,” Coulter said.

NBC’s’s contributor Mike Celizic reported some of the banter this way:

But if Coulter harbored any animosity, she didn’t show it. Even when she traded zingers with Lauer, with whom she once appeared on “The Greatest American,” a show on the Discovery Channel, she was all smiles.

Lauer accused her of saying, “The mainstream media hates conservatives.”

“I didn’t say that,” Coulter said. But she admitted that she agrees with the sentiment, “but I have much more colorful language.”

“We switched you for Tony Blair,” Lauer explained. “The point is, I was canceled twice,” Coulter rejoined, referring to a second scheduled appearance on Tuesday with Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford in the show’s fourth hour that was also dropped.

“Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean you don’t have enemies,” Lauer quipped with a smile.
