Childhood and youth
Ann Hart Coulter was born on December 8, 1961, in New York City. Her father John Vincent Coulter was an FBI agent of Irish–German heritage, and a corporate lawyer. Her mother's name is Nell Husbands Coulter.
She has two siblings: a brother named James, who is an accountant; and a brother named John, an attorney. Ann studied in New Canaan High School, Connecticut, when the family moved to live there and graduated in 1980.
From childhood, Ann was interested in political life. Her parents were Republican, and she remembers her father idolizing Joseph McCarthy. She read a lot of books about politics. In the age of 14, Ann had a chance to visit a law school in New York City, where her older brother studied. In a young age, she has read a lot of Republican books, and at that time it inspired her to become a writer.
Ann graduated from Cornell University, Ithaca, New York in 1984 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in history and from the University of Michigan Law School in 1988 with Juris Doctor. She worked as an editor of the Michigan Law Review.
In 1994 after working in a private law firm in New York, Coulter moved to Kansas City. She started her work as a lawyer for Spencer Abraham, a Republican U.S. senator representing Michigan. She dealt with crime and immigration issues.
Serving as a lawyer, Ann was representing Paula Jone who wished to get a confirmation from Bill Clinton for misbehaving towards her. After years of negotiations, the lawyers won Paula Jones a settlement of $850,000. Jones admitted this sum and also accepted the offer to make nude photo session for Playboy (as wiki stated). It was shocking to Coulter, and she called her “the trailer-park trash”.
In 1996 Coulter worked on the cable news channel MSNBC but was dismissed after arguing with a disabled Vietnam veteran. These words sounded like a joke for her, and she justified herself saying she had no desire to offend somebody. In a short time she earned the reputation of a sarcastic and controversial person.
Despite her speeches, she starred on television programs such as CNN and Fox News. In 2004 Ann appeared in the documentaries. To promote her new book she went out on "The View" with a co-host Whoopi Goldberg who was not amused to hear some expressions concerning racism.

The main thing is that her thoughts resonate with the public.
