Ann Coulter was an AlwaysTrumper. She was so smitten by Trump that she wrote a book in his honor entitled, “In Trump We Trust.” From the moment I heard the title of Coulter’s book, I thought it was creepy. I didn’t have a problem with her really really really liking Trump and supporting him, but writing an entire book in his honor was a little much. But what made me seriously question Ann’s blind devotion to the president was her recklessness of transposing Trump’s name for God’s. It was completely tasteless.
Unfortunately for Ann, she dedicated her entire book to Trump only to now suggest that he needs to be impeached, because he “might” be backing out of his DACA promise to his base. And I say “might”, because at this point it is only a guess.
But that’s Ann’s problem. Anyone who puts that kind of faith in any man is asking for a letdown. We can hope Trump does the right thing. We can expect him to carry through with his promises. But when we shower anyone with adulation, we had better hope we have pine needles or a mattress underneath us when we fall from the disillusionment.
Now, Ann is suspended in political purgatory as she bemoans her hasty fawning of President Trump. Had she just supported Trump rather than worshiped him, she would have found forgiveness a little easier.
So, in one corner we have Ann Coulter, the scorned over-zealous Trump sycophant. And in the other, we have a lesser know woman by the name of Susan Wright. Wright is a blogger for Redstate. And if Wright is anything, she is a NeverTrumper. Rarely does the woman write a commentary that she isn’t chiseling away at the president. She is one of the most annoying writers that I have taken the time to read, because she pounces on Trump at every turn.
She wrote an article this weekend in which she mocked Coulter for drinking the orange Kool-Aid and believing Trump was a Republican in the first place. Wright wrote, “I’m going to have to start following Coulter’s Twitter feed. As Trump begins to pivot left, her breakdown is going to become more and more glorious. Too bad she didn’t have the integrity to listen to those of us who tried to warn her and others like her early on.”
Before I continue, I want to say that Susan Wright is a jerk. She isn’t concerned about her country. She is essentially interested in being right. Her arrogance makes Ann Coulter appear to be modest.
Stating that those Trump supporters, who didn’t listen to the NeverTrumpers from early on, have no integrity, are words of a smug egomaniac. And wanting to relish Coulter’s “glorious” breakdown is the mindset of a malicious “mean girl.”
Hoping that Trump fails so as to enjoy her own self-righteousness in predicting that he would disappoint his base says more about Wright’s callous disregard for the nation than it does about any advice that she wants to hand out to those Americans who did not want to listen to her.
Ann Coulter and Susan Wright are two sides of the same extreme. Coulter, a devoted follower of Trump, thought that he could do no wrong. Ann is a single-issue voter. She is obsessed with the lawlessness of illegal immigration. She has decided that he betrayed her, and that’s that. Ann is off the Trump Train. And odds are that she won’t jump back on it.
Wright is a radical Trump-hater. As I mentioned earlier, most of her essays are smack downs of Trump, many of them being totally baseless. She wants Trump supporters to pay, because they did not listen to her, and Coulter wants Trump to pay, because she believes he is getting ready to abandon his campaign promises regarding illegal immigration.
Both women are fanatics. The NeverTrumper versus the AlwaysTrumper. And they will both lose.
