Sen. Warren On Coulter's Berkeley Speech: "Let Her Speak And Just Don't Show Up"

|

Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren is interviewed by CNN's Jake Tapper on Monday night's edition of The Lead.

JAKE TAPPER, CNN: I want to ask you one last question. And I’m interested in your answer both as a law professor and also as somebody who was at Harvard for a long time.

SEN. ELIZABETH WARREN (D-MA): Uh-huh.

TAPPER: There's this big issue going on about conservative pundit Ann Coulter and whether or not she has a right to speak at Berkeley. She was incited by the Berkeley Republicans.

Former Vermont governor and DNC chair Howard Dean tweeted last week, quote, "Hate speech is not protected by the First Amendment." Is that true?

WARREN: You know, look, Ann Coulter has gotten a bigger platform because someone tried to deny her a chance to speak. My view is, let her speak and just don't show up. If you don't like it, don't show up.
