Here we are not even four months into Trumptopia and things are already so bad and so disappointing on so many levels that even Ann Coulter is noticing…and admitting that she’s noticing.
Here’s how The Daily Caller addressed Coulter’s semi-awakening in an article posted yesterday:
“Conservative author Ann Coulter was one of the most vocal supporters of Donald Trump during the presidential campaign.
She wrote “In Trump We Trust” and proclaimed that she worships him like the “people of North Korea worship their Dear Leader – blind loyalty.”
Coulter described herself as a single-issue voter during the election and was drawn to Trump due to his “Mexican rapist speech” and him calling for a border wall to be built.
In an interview Sunday with The Daily Caller, Coulter let it be known she still has hope in the Trump presidency, but is ready to jump ship.”
So the woman who wrote In Trump We Trust is ready to jump ship.
Four months after Trump was sworn in to office.
Less than four months after Trump was sworn into office.
The article continued (with questions/statements to Coulter in bold print and her responses in standard type):
“So there’s no wall, and Obama’s amnesties look like they are here to stay. Do you still trust Trump?
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. This is why we voted for him. I think everyone who voted for him knew his personality was grotesque, it was the issues.
I hate to say it, but I agree with every line in my friend Frank Bruni’s op-ed in The New York Times today. 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?
You said during the election and in columns that if there is no wall it’s the end of America.
Trump was our last shot. I kind of thought it was Romney, and then lo and behold like a miracle Trump comes along. I still believe in Trumpism. I have no regrets for ferociously supporting him. What choice did we have?
We had no choice. Yeah, I mean, my fingers are still crossed. It’s not like I’m out yet, but boy, things don’t look good. I’ve said to other people, “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.
What’s behind him driving towards New York?
If he grabs the steering wheel and turns around and takes us toward LA, then I’ll just put it down to him not being a professional politician and having to come into the presidency with no support network, with all of official Washington against him.
I have from the beginning been opposed to Trump hiring any of his relatives. Americans don’t like that, I don’t like that. That’s the one fascist thing he’s done. Hiring his kids.
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, and by the way this isn’t to say anything bad about Jared. Everything I know about him, I think he’s doing a great job. But even if he is absolutely the best person for the job, I don’t like the hiring of relatives.
I could understand all that if he gets control of the steering wheel and turns around and starts going towards LA.
If we just keep going to New York. Well again, I’ll say we had no choice, but the Trump-haters were right…It’s a nightmare. I can’t even contemplate that. Right now I’m still rooting for him to turn around and take us toward LA.
Are you going to be apologizing to these Never Trumpers?
I don’t apologize for supporting Trump. He said all the right things and nobody else would even say it. I suppose it’s possible that another politician who really meant it would come along. There’s Kris Kobach, Tom Cotton, Jeff Sessions…there are probably a handful of politicians.
I got to tell you when I wrote “Adios America” I thought there was a 10 percent chance of saving the country. On the evening of November 8, I thought, “Wow we have a 90 percent chance now, this is a chance that comes a long once every thousand years, we can save America now.”
And now, I don’t know, I’m someplace between 10 percent and 90 percent.”
“Someplace between 10 percent and 90 percent.”
This is what pagan “conservatism” looks like, folks.
This is where it leads.
Now, having (hopefully) noted the sheer nuttiness of this situation, let’s pay special attention to a key concept/rationalization repeated often by Trumptopians like Ann: We had no choice but to elect Trump.
Because we must fear!
We must fear the Democrats.
We must fear the Clintons.
We must fear losing the White House (again).
We must fear losing America.
We must fear the Supreme Court.
When it comes to politics, we must fear everything and everyone but…the Lord.
(For more on this important concept, please read The Fear-Fueled Politics of American Statism, Fear is worship…so stop fearing anything or anyone but God., and Want to actually save America? Stop fearing Hillary and start fearing the Lord. You can also listen to a podcast on this subject by checking out How fear-fueled politics compels cowardly American Christians to choose wicked leadership. – Fire Breathing Christian Podcast.)
This is why we have Trump.
This is why we had Obama, Bush, Clinton, and Bush before him.
And this is why we will have whatever worse thing comes after Trump.
Our fear of the world and abandonment of Christ as the authority upon Whom we build our legal, political, economic, and civil governmental approaches is what is killing us.
Looking to Donald Trump, Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh or FOX News to “make America great” is like looking to a crack dealer for the keys to sobriety.

Mr. BussBook… I noticed that you CENSORED the Ann Barnhardt article I posted..
Build your own website and put whatever you like there. Your Precious Snowflake entitlement inclinations carry no weight here.
Hop on the Buss – the christian' Censor..
NPR announced that it would eliminate all “Comments” sections from its official website posts. Of course, the ultra-balanced writers at NPR did not say this was a move to stop dissenting views from appearing right beneath their collectivist posts. They claimed that the engagement by readers was not sizeable enough to merit continuing comments on their posts..
Other sites, such as USA Today FTW, and The Week have shut down their comments, as well..
Your capacity to whine on and on while completely missing the point is classic Snowflake Entitlement Syndrome on display.
The irony of your being allowed (at my discretion, of course) to continue here with your whining adds some comedic value, at least.
3 days later – a reply from the King………
i like that: "at my discretion"
i would wear it like a badge of honor to be purged from
from this phony site!
Buss continues to censor certain comments….
even satan can regurgitate scripture….
you control the board because you own it…
i remember a couple years back when some on the board battled you, on your own board concerning US Trade Deals…..
now we can have more of that – can we!!
i take it back – your worse than the left..
moderation is a form of censorship
Newsflash: You have no inherent right to post anything at my website. I have no obligation to allow open access to anyone who wants to say anything that they like.
The modern entitlement mentality that conflates actual rights with self-referential desires is something I hope to confront and correct rather than encourage and enable.
I hope that these clarifications are helpful.
you arent any different than the left….
The Left’s War on Comment Sections..
The internet was born open but is becoming closed everywhere. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the rush to shutter readers’ comments sections at major news organisations. Cheered on by intolerant, snobbish cultural elites, news organisations from The Verge to The Daily Beast have, in recent months, informed their readers to take their opinions elsewhere.
There was a time when comments sections were seen as the next step in a golden age of democratised communication, particularly by the political Left (they are all leftists).
It takes a special kind of blind nuttiness (operating hand in glove with the aforementioned entitlement complex) to imagine that anyone daring to vet comments made at their own site for the sake of preventing bad language or spam (for example) is therefore somehow "like the left" in any significant way. The irony is getting pretty thick here as you whine and label as "no different than the left" those who actually own things and manage the things that they own by their standards in a manner that doesn't allow you – the non-owner of this site – to post whatever you want without any vetting.
I have no obligation to provide you with a forum to post whatever you want, whenever you want, and however you want.
And that's a good thing.
It's called "freedom".
Look it up.
If you want a certain kind of site, build it. Earn it. Run it.
But don't demand that I do your work for you.
Not. Gonna. Happen.
Man up, buttercup.
Stop sounding like another whiny, entitled little Snowflake.
