Ann Coulter ripped on the GOP, saying that “hucksters [and] shysters” are hijacking the party. Coulter made the statements on the GOP while promoting her latest book.

“The problem is we have hucksters, shysters, people ripping off the Republican Party for their own self-aggrandizement, for their own egos, to make money,” the conservative commentator said on Fox News’s “Hannity,” according to Politico.

She added: “I would put Todd Akin, Newt Gingrich, Liz Cheney, Mark Sanford all in the same boat, and the consultants who persuaded Linda McMahon and John Raese to run.”

Hannity defended Cheney, the daughter of ex-Vice President Dick Cheney, who is running for senator in Wyoming. “She’s not a shyster, so let’s be clear,” he said.

“Why should we be having — and I love Liz Cheney — but why should we be having a rancorous primary against a good Republican senator other than for Liz Cheney’s ego?” she said. Cheney is running against Republican Sen. Mike Enzi.

Coulter agreed that Cheney “isn’t” more conservative than Enzi, aqdding there “are a lot of problems.”

“We are not concentrating on winning, we are allowing shysters to take advantage of the Republican Party,” she said.
