Ann Coulter Might Dump Her ‘Emperor God’ Trump Over Bannon



08.18.17 8:10 PM ET

In a Daily Beast interview, firebrand Coulter repeatedly attacked President Trump for betraying his constituency, and belittled aides such as Kellyanne Conway and Stephen Miller.

 


So much for “In Trump We Trust.”
“I’m ticked off at the Emperor God,” 

said right-wing firebrand Ann Coulter, who last year authored a book with that worshipful title (subtitle: “E Pluribus Awesome”), as she processed Friday’s firing of chief White House strategist Stephen K. Bannon.
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, 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?”
In a conversation that amounted to a primal scream, Coulter repeatedly attacked her former hero for betraying his constituency, belittled White House aides such as Kellyanne Conway and Stephen Miller, accused the president of kowtowing to the same news media he professes to loathe, and otherwise raged at the dying of the wall along with any number of other populist policy prescriptions that Trump touted to beat the Republican establishment and Hillary Clinton.
“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 declared. “Republicans, Democrats—doesn’t matter! Jeb exclamation point, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton—doesn’t matter. Goldman Sachs is running the country!”
As for Stephen Miller, the former Jeff Sessions aide who briefly became the architect of the president’s anti-Muslim ban and occasionally jousts in the White House press room, “he’s just a speechwriter for the White House staff,” Coulter said. For a good part of the 2016 presidential campaign, Coulter insisted, Conway was a diehard Ted Cruz supporter.
