I didn’t like Ann Coulter before I did like her but now I really don’t like her.
Sound familiar? Probably lots of conservatives have followed the same path as me when it comes to Coulter.
First of all, her arrogant self-importance is bound to grate on the nerves of anyone with a human-sized ego. No matter what she says in her political commentary, it was always hard to tolerate her “look at me… no, REALLY, look at ME!!!” approach to life.
It was, however, nice to watch her challenge the RINOs who said one thing and did another, and as the Republican Party establishment grew more elite, it eventually made sense to prefer Colter to the likes of John Boehner and Mitt Romney (oh wait, she supported Romney!). Then when she said publicly that Donald Trump was just what the GOP needed to fight back against the globalist takeover of the United States, it looked like she might be able to put the interests of the country ahead of her interest in her own face.
But lately the real Ann Coulter has surfaced — the selfish loudmouth who craves attention more than anything. She has presumably watched as President Trump has enjoyed huge successes in his first two years as president; seen him fight back furiously against the Deep State, the Fake News Media, and the Democrat crime family; and govern as a true conservative even more that Ronald Reagan. Despite that, Coulter has gone on the attack against Trump, giving cover to the despicable Never Trumpers and dishonorable Resistance.
The final straw came Friday. When President Trump declared a national emergency and put his presidency on the line in support of his campaign promise to build a wall, you would think Coulter would be ecstatic. Instead she went on what might most generously be described as a drunken or drug-addled assault against Trump.
On Twitter, she wrote:
The goal is to get Trump’s stupidest voters to say “HE’S FIGHTING!” No he’s not. If he signs this bill, it’s over.
Ok so now Clinton’s Deplorables are Coulter’s Stupid Voters. That means you and me. Then she cranked it up and called President Trump an “idiot.”
From a radio interview with KABC, where she spoke cryptically of building the wall:
“It was one thing, the promise he made every single day at every single speech. Forget the fact that he’s digging his own grave,” Coulter added. “The only national emergency is that our president is an idiot.”
How do you explain that Coulter is attacking the president for doing just what he said he would do? The only explanation other than her being high on drugs is that she cares more about herself than the country.
So yeah, Bye-bye Ann. From now on it’s Never Coulter.
