Ann Coulter continues to speak out against Donald Trump on a host of issues including his failure to build the border wall, the strike on Syria, and his apparent flip-flop on NATO. In a recent interview with the Daily Caller, Coulter reiterated her distaste in the policies of the Trump administration.
From the Daily Caller:
“Uhhhh. I’m not very happy with what has happened so far. I guess we have to try to push him to keep his promises. But this isn’t North Korea, and if he doesn’t keep his promises I’m out. This is why we voted for him. I think everyone who voted for him knew his personality was grotesque, it was the issues.
“I hate to say it, but I agree with every line in my friend Frank Bruni’s op-ed in The New York Times today. Where is the great negotiation? Where is the bull in the china shop we wanted? That budget the Republicans pushed through was like a practical joke… Did we win anything? And this is the great negotiator?
“We had no choice. Yeah, I mean my fingers are still crossed, it’s not like I’m out yet, but boy things don’t look good. I’ve said to other people, ‘It’s as if we’re in Chicago and Trump tells us he’s going to get us to LA in six days. But for the first three days we are driving towards New York. Yes it is true he can still turn around and get us to LA in three days, but I’m a little nervous.”
Ann Coulter is known for her brutal honesty and frank discussion about the facts. Remember that she was the earliest public supporter of Trump. She is famous for announcing that Trump was the Republican candidate with the best chance at winning the general election, a statement that brought about laughing from Bill Maher’s audience.
During the Daily Caller interview, Coulter was asked why she thought Trump was failing. She blamed a lack of “professional” political experience and the Washington establishment hellbent on bringing him down. Coulter is right to a large degree. Many in Washington, from politicians to lobbyists to activists, have challenged Trump’s agenda with mild success. Trump has had a lot of victories and signed a lot of executive orders undoing Obama-era regulations, but he has also faced setbacks.
“…just put it down to him not being a professional politician and having to come into the presidency with no support network, with all of official Washington against him.
“I do of course blame Congress most of all. They are swine. They only care about their own careers. Who knows how much of it is corruption and how much of it is pure stupidity. People should start sending Paul Ryan bricks to indicate how much we want the wall.
“They are the opposition party to Donald Trump. This is really something we’ve never seen before. The president stands alone, it’s his own political party, he’s Gary Cooper. All we have is millions of Americans behind him, but he doesn’t have anybody in Washington behind him.”
