In the age of #Donald Trump as the President of the United States, it doesn't come as a surprise when outrageous claims and allegations are made, especially on the internet. However, author #Ann Coulter might have crossed the line during one of her most recent outbursts on Twitter [VIDEO].

Police controversy

When Donald Trump first kicked off his campaign for president [VIDEO], the consensus was that his candidacy wasn't going to go too far and that it was all just a publicity stunt to increase the ratings on his reality TV show. After a few months, the former host of "The Apprentice" gained popularity, and was able to ride that momentum to the Republican National Convention where he was named the GOP nominee.

Just a few months later and Trump pulled off the shocking upset win over Hillary Clinton and became the new commander in chief. While the country appeared split in their support, either loving or hating the new president, one name that has stood by Trump's side from the start has been Ann Coulter. The outspoken conservative author even published a pro-Trump book during the election, praising him for his stance on illegal immigration and Islamic terrorism. However, like Trump, Coulter also has a tendency to go too far on social media, which was on display during a June 6 tweet about the NYPD.

Just days after at least three Islamic terrorists carried out an act of terror on and around the London Bridge, an Algerian man was shot by the French police right outside the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris.

The attacker reportedly went after a police offer with hammer while shouting "this is for Syria." One cop was left injured, while the suspect was taken out. In response, Ann Coulter addressed the issue during a tweet on Tuesday, while mocking the NYPD in the process.

Coulter's take

"Paris police very macho, unlike the little girls on NYPD," Ann Coulter wrote on her Twitter account, before adding "Only 2 shots fired, one hit the Muslim in the thorax." Coulter's tweet comes as a surprise considering the conservative party line in the United States is to defend police at all costs, with the NYPD being one of the most respected in the country.

Not stopping there, Ann Coulter doubled down with a follow-up post, praising the French police for hiring "large, strong men," as opposed to the #Men And Women hired by the NYPD. "We're hectored to be like the French on adultery & global warming. Why can't we be like the French on hiring large, strong men as cops?" Coulter tweeted. As of press time, neither the NYPD nor the Trump administration have issued a comment.
