Ann Coulter displays her superior logic as no one else can. She wants a candidate to pursue her immigration agenda (pro-wall, anti-amnesty) and is dead set against the one candidate who has proven he would follow that agenda.
Coulter says that immigration is all the matters, that we need to build a wall and oppose amnesty. But she also claims that Donald Trump – who actually favors amnesty and a big door in his wall – is the best candidate, indeed, the only candidate who can do what she wants done.
Moreover, Coulter adamantly opposes – and continually lies about – Ted Cruz, who has been consistently opposed to amnesty and has actually attempted to build a wall.
Coulter, who admits that Trump is a liar and fraud,, seems to believe that Trump will build a wall and stop immigration, when, in fact, Trump has consistently been inconsistent and flexible on both of those issues (as he is on all issues). (Does Ann believe in fairy dust, too?)
It’s no wonder that Coulter has gone mental over a candidate she herself has called mental.
Why Would Coulter Do This?
First, Coulter is delusional, holding a very warped self-image. Back in the late 1990s, one of her colleagues observed that she displays a “mass of contradictions.” Once regarded as a far-right conservative, Coulter has lately fervently supported RINO candidates, from Christie, to Romney, and, now, Trump. She loves wealthy, Northeastern elites.
Second, Coulter’s priorities have radically changed throughout this century. Now, she eschews conservative and Christian principles and values for something more pragmatic. Now, she opposes constitutional conservatives and pro-lifers in favor of a libertine liberal whose nomination would give Democrats the White House, and, perhaps even Congress.
Moreover, Coulter has placed self-interest ahead of her country and her God. Trump’s candidacy, conjoined with Coulter’s book tour, was a boon to her career. Speeches and book signing at Trump rallies certainly helped. The media, contrary to Coulter’s claims, has lavished attention on her.
But, Coulter has so intertwined her own career, reputation, and credibility with a Trump victory that she can’t escape culpability for his many sins. What she should do is repudiate him, but her vanity and impenitent spirit will not allow it.
If she had known then what she knows now, would Coulter have pursued a different course? We will never know. For now, she is stuck with her foolish and bullheaded choices. Will she repent and try to salvage what’s left of her reputation, or obstinately stick with her arrogant tomfoolery? (My guess: the latter.)
Already, Coulter has lost an incredible degree of credibility and, in many circles, is largely irrelevant. Many people who once held her in esteem will never trust her again. Coulter’s penchant for prevarication and propaganda over facts and truth has alienated her from huge swaths of conservatives, Christians, and patriots.
Coulter’s future rests in how she tackles the moral and spiritual dilemma she currently faces. In the meantime, Coulter cannot be trusted. (And neither can Trump!)
