Conservative commentator Ann Coulter sparked an angry reaction on social media Thursday when she said Seattle wouldn’t be worth saving in a nuclear attack.

Coulter referenced comments from retired Gen. Michael Hayden, who said North Korea is close to having the ability to launch an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of hitting Seattle.

“Gen. Michael Hayden: N Korea will make nuke capable of hitting Seattle! Situation will be dire as soon as they can hit a city worth saving,” Coulter wrote.

There was, of course, some push-back on social media.
