COULTER: Thank you for asking.
HANNITY: Let me say this. Because the Politico wrote a story today saying, conservatives are turning on him. I made a political observation and I said, all of this, all of these allegations have hurt Herman Cain in as much as they have sown the seeds of doubt. That doesn't mean I believe them. I don't believe them.
COULTER: I absolutely don't believe them but I think both you and I were going on TV last night as the story was breaking and we were hearing that statement from Herman Cain's lawyer. And I hear he's a fantastic lawyer.
HANNITY: The lawyer is brilliant, I know him.
COULTER: Yes. And still, he is looking at this case as a lawyer examining it. Is there any cause of action here? And he made what sounded like an admission to all of us. We are talking about a private consensual affair here. Well, then I get home that night from taping "Red Eye" and Herman Cain is on TV saying, absolutely there was no affair, no sex. She was a friend of mine. I can't imagine what she's claiming her proof is. I find out what the proof is, she has a signed book from Herman Cain, something like, "Friendship is the most important thing in life. Everything else is a bonus." If that is evidence of a 13-year affair I have had about a million 13-year affairs. And we find out that she's got the full combo platter, bankruptcy, a sexual harassment suit in the past, she hasn't paid rent year, this year she lost a judgment against her for defamation and stalking. She's an unemployed single mother. You have the whole combo platter of an unbelievable witness.
Now I don't think Herman Cain is going to be our nominee but he's a magnificent man, he's a great man. He deserves to be defended and the media deserves to be attacked for this and he should have a prominent speaking position at our convention.
HANNITY: This is a shame though. He has brought energy, he has brought ideas, charisma and a cheer. Every time I've been in the room with him -- this is why I've always doubted these allegations -- I've watched him. I've been on stage with him. I've interviewed him. I've known him for over a decade. What they're describing is not the person that I have seen in person with women.
HANNITY: And it is just not the guy that I see. I don't believe it.
COULTER: Not only that, not only was it totally believable with Bill Clinton, but again this woman is claiming a 13-year affair. There's evidence of a one-night stand. This woman doesn't even have a semen- stained dress. She's got an inscribed book from him --
HANNITY: It sound like a semen-stained dress is something that is often --
COULTER: Well, with the Democrats it is. And again, I've said this before, but it needs to be said again, this is because the Democrats only defense of Obama, who has wrecked the economy and people are going to vote against, is to say you are only voting against him because he's black. They have got to destroy Herman Cain. It is more of the same, zero plus zero plus zero is still zero. He deserves our absolute defense.
HANNITY: Thank you for not cursing.
COULTER: I did not curse this morning. I used a perfectly appropriate word. If you can't say that, I don't know how you're supposed to describe John McCain.
HANNITY: Good to see you.
COULTER: Good to see you.
HANNITY: And by the way, we're not going to talk at all about your boyfriend. I had to get it in.
