After White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon’s ouster today, Ann Coulter let loose in an interview with Lloyd Grove of the Daily Beast.
“I’m ticked off at the Emperor God,” said Coulter, who wrote a book about Trump last year titled, In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!
Grove writes that Coulter is
Increasingly disgusted and disheartened by the president’s inability, or unwillingness, to fulfill the anti-immigration, anti-Wall Street, anti-globalist promises for which Coulter had been one of his more impassioned supporters, she now refers to Trump sarcastically as a deity/monarch in his own megalomaniacal mind.
“If Trump wants to prove that he didn’t get the good ideas from Bannon,” Coulter said, “then it better be pedal-to-the-metal on deportations, the Wall, that tax hike on people who make more than $5 million a year, which I understand was Bannon’s idea but perhaps I was wrong. If that was Trump’s idea, then let’s have it!… Did you hear that on Wall Street, they were cheering today?”
Trump is betraying his supporters, she said.
“The millions of people who haven’t voted for 30 years and came out to vote for Trump, thinking ‘finally, here’s somebody who cares about us’—Nope!” Coulter said. “Republicans, Democrats—doesn’t matter! Jeb exclamation point, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton—doesn’t matter. Goldman Sachs is running the country!”
White House advisor Kellyanne Conway is no friend of Trump, she suggested.
“As late as the summer [of 2016], Kellyanne [Conway] was saying that Trump built his business on the backs of the little guy,” she said. “You know I love the Emperor God, but he does have flaws. And one of them is his vast, yawning narcissism. He just seems to be obsessed with the fact that people give Bannon credit. And we all know that [Jared] Kushner is the one who won the White House for him.”
Did Kushner win Trump the White House? I don’t know.
But I do know that all of this is one big mess.
