One has to wonder if Ann Coulter is feeling a little under the weather these days. The staunch conservative author and columnist has been outspoken about many things over the last 25 years; her undying devotion to the GOP dates back to the early 1990s and she hasn’t slowed down since. She’s been able to pen 12 best-selling books, including Adios America and In Trump We Trust, yet her affinity for The Donald seems to be fading fast.
During the 2016 presidential election, Coulter considered herself to be a “one issue” voter, referring to Trump’s diatribe speech on Mexican rapists and the fact that he wanted to build a wall at the southern border and have México pay for it. During an interview on Sunday, Ms. Coulter had many things to say when asked about Trump’s presidency.
Coulter indicated that she wasn’t thrilled about what has taken place up to this point:”I guess we have to try to push him to keep his promises. But … if he doesn’t keep his promises I’m out.”
It’s no secret that Trump has fallen well short of expectations on a number of issues, and Coulter didn’t mince words when asked about whether or not she still had faith in Trump to get things done in the near future.
“Where is the great negotiation? That budget the Republicans pushed through was like a practical joke. … Did we win anything?”
Coulter also added that she wasn’t very happy about the nepotism taking place in the White House with the hiring of Trump’s daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner.
“Americans don’t like that, I don’t like that. That’s the one fascist thing he’s done. Hiring his kids. … [But] the Trump-haters were right … it’s a nightmare. I can’t even contemplate that.”
Coulter also ripped into Congress and how they’ve done very little to push Trump’s agenda forward. She referred to them as “swine,” and she also stated that many members of Congress only care about furthering their own careers. She added that she wasn’t quite sure how much of the political hoopla in Washington involved corruption or just plain old stupidity.
Apparently she’s sticking to her “one issue” voter stance by saying that people should start visiting Paul Ryan and bring him a few bricks to signify how serious Trump supporters are about building the wall.
Ann Coulter is still hopeful that her president will be able to turn things around, yet if the stalemate in the Trump administration continues for a lengthy period of time, she’s gone.
