Ann Coulter Calls Herself ‘Very Stupid’ For Ever Supporting Trump

Ann Coulter has been on a tear lately as her formerly beloved president Donald Trump wavered and then ultimately capitulated in his shutdown showdown with Democrats over wall funding.

Once an ardent supporter of Tump’s, Coulter has torn into him over immigration, calling him “the biggest wimp” to ever serve as president for reopening the government without a wall deal.

It seems the love affair is over.

Now in an appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher, Coulter has admitted that believing Trump may have been a fool’s errand from the start.

When asked by Maher when she first realized that Trump was “a lying con-man” Coulter threw up her hands and said:

“Ok I’m a very stupid girl, fine.”

Needless to say it’s a highly satisfying sequence of words to hear the fervent right-wing propagandist utter. The “very stupid” part, that is. The self-deprecating “girl” remark seemed more like a rhetorical shield designed to deflect attention from the fact that she is admitting to vocally supporting a terrible president.

Coulter went on to say of her Trump support:

“We thought that he didn’t care what the elites thought and that he’d keep his promises on this [the wall].”

While Coulter can claim to be surprised, hoodwinked, and disappointed now, in truth she knew who Donald Trump was all along….and simply didn’t care. She knew, as most people knew, that he was a braggart and a con-man, who was unlikely to deliver on any of his outlandish promises.

But that didn’t trouble her since Coulter herself is a far-right media lich who sows division and discord wherever she goes and will say anything, no matter how outrageous, to provoke a reaction and sell her propaganda books.

Much like Trump it’s all about making the sale, truth and common decency be damned.

Let’s just hope, for sanity’s sake, that she’s not mulling a Trumpian election bid herself.

Now if you’ll excuse me I’m off to make Coulter calling herself “very stupid” my ringtone.
