The virulent far right political commentator Ann Coulter isn’t impressed with the trajectory of the Trump Administration thus far, even though she came out big time for him in the lead up to the election.
Speaking to the Daily Caller, Coulter compared the path thus far taken by the Trump Administration to literally driving the wrong way across the country, saying:
‘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.’
Remarkably, Coulter was harsh in her characterizations of Trump, but she still expressed, as indicated in the quote above, a willingness to keep going along with him for the time being. Of course, such goes along with her delusional assertion that only Trump turning his campaign season promises into reality can truly “save America.”
At least the rest of us can be somewhat reassured by the fact that at least Trump hasn’t put up his long promised wall yet, whereas such troubles Coulter.
The Daily Caller’s Alex Pfeiffer asked Coulter, “So there’s no wall, and Obama’s amnesties look like they are here to stay. Do you still trust Trump?”
She replied, “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.”
She went on to cite other issues that underline her dissatisfaction with Trump, saying: “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?”
Indeed; to people like Coulter, the recently passed government appropriations bill was little more than a “practical joke.” It didn’t include any funding for Trump’s long promised U.S./ Mexico border wall, and it did include funding for things such as Planned Parenthood and the overall continuation of Obamacare.
On that note, Coulter is surely also indignant that Obamacare is still in place, although the rest of us are temporarily relieved. Trump’s previously referenced sham “negotiating” skills came up short in the debate over the Republican ACA replacement bill, with the bill’s first incarnation seeing the president fail to win over the necessary Congressional votes to get it to pass.
Still, as mentioned, Coulter, who previously compared her loyalty to Trump to the loyalty of North Korean citizens to their Supreme Leader, cut the President some slack in her Daily Caller interview.
Taking the lead from Trump, Coulter took to blaming everyone but Trump himself for his failures.
‘I have from the beginning been opposed to Trump hiring any of his relatives… But I understand if you’re in Washington you don’t know who to trust, the party was against you, the politicians were against you, the bureaucracy was against you… I do, of course, blame Congress most of all. They are swine. They only care about their own careers.’
