What Would Ann Coulter Eat?

If Ann Coulter can ask Who Would Jesus Kill (WWJK)? then we can surely ask What Would Ann Coulter Eat (WWACE)?

(This is a very abbreviated extract from a case study in Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged.)

When not drinking chardonnay, Coulter’s non-alcoholic beverage of choice is a Diet Coke.[1]

In a 2000 column, Coulter wrote, “If anyone ever opened my closets, they would have thought I belonged to some crazy survivalist cult that believes in storing a year’s worth of toilet paper and Diet Coke.”[2]

Ann’s current Twitter fan club, Anntensity, observed: “Coulter reacted with tacit satisfaction, calmly took a sip from her Diet Coke.”

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported:

“But here is Ann Coulter, fresh from a lecture and book-signing, sipping a glass of Diet Coke in a quiet conference room and exuding not venom and hatred but sunshine and light.”

“So fine-boned and slender she almost disappears when viewed sideways, she’s all glowing tan and shiny blond mane. A diamond tennis bracelet twinkles on her right arm. Her pale blue-gray eyes sparkle. With a smile she says no, she doesn’t write to shock.”

“She’s wearing a cropped jacket and a form-fitting spaghetti-strapped dress cut to her signature micro-mini length. (‘Skirts so short you can see her brains,’ a Salon wag wrote of her wardrobe.)”

“It’s an outfit that would look absurd on most women of 39 (by her account) or 41 (according to her voter registration record). But it flatters Coulter, who lacks thighs and wrinkles and could pass for a mid-20s grad student.”

Nicorette Gum

Not technically a food, Coulter often treats Nicorette gum as if it is a nutritional necessity.

Multiple interviewers have observed Coulter’s addiction to Nicorette. One noted, “I believe she was chewing her fourth piece of Nicorette…”[3] Another asked, “How does she stay so thin? Never ate, chewed gum all night.”[4] Another wrote, “[Coulter] devoured tablets of Nicorette gum as though they were Tic Tacs.”[5]

Coulter “chewed her third piece of Nicorette at a French café on the Upper East Side.”

To one interviewer, Coulter exclaimed, “I have two patches on right now – and Nicorette gum in my purse! I quit last October and I don’t feel any better – no better whatsoever. Plus, it’s like a miracle drug. When you’re upset, it calms you down.”[6]

Is Coulter so addicted to nicotine that she can’t quit?

Is Coulter so nervous before an appearance that she needs nicotine to appear in control?

Check out this fascinating off-air but on-camera exchange: [7]

FEMALE SPEAKER: “Did you want to keep the gum?”

ANN COULTER: “No, I have my little thing [container].”

FEMALE SPEAKER: “You do?”

ANN COULTER: “I’m waiting for them to come to me. It’s my Nicorette. So, it’s like smoking before I go on.

FEMALE SPEAKER: “Right.”

ANN COULTER: “Right? And they’re still chattering with Peter King. And then there will have to be a commercial.”

FEMALE SPEAKER: “OK.”

MALE SPEAKER: “I have two here.”

ANN COULTER: “I don’t think I’ll need another one before I go on, but thank you. If you can chop it up so I can snort it. That would help. …”

ANN COULTER: “Oh, OK. So, we do have a commercial before you come to me? OK, I’m putting my Nicorette back in.”

Coulter was relentlessly mocked for her rather endearing self-deprecating humor regarding nicotine. Yes, it is evidence of an addiction she cannot seem to kick. Her words were intentionally comical, yet her chewing was unintentionally exaggerated – chewing to get as much out of it as quickly as she could. This suggests Coulter experiences some measure of insecurity on set and requires her nicotine fix to be calm. (Remember, Ann suffers from panic attacks.)

From the moment I saw that clip, I felt it was endearing (but I repeat myself). Coulter exhibited genuineness and likeability. Her real personality appeared to shine through.

However, I would think that if one has been struggling with addictions for decades, one would have some measure of compassion for others with theirs.

Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged provides an in-depth, detailed analysis in this holistic exposé of how and why Coulter has become such a warped human being.

Joker addresses the physical, mental, emotional, psychological, familial, sexual, and spiritual dimensions which have shaped the Ann Coulter that we know today and it highlights both the positives and the negatives of Coulter’s life and career.

Ann’s brokenness provides an object lesson for all of us and, hopefully, this book will act as an intervention to help Ann face her deep brokenness and motivate her to seek healing and restoration.

The Day Ann Coulter Cried at CPAC!

In 1999, I attended my first CPAC conference as a credentialed member of the press. I had no inkling of the drama that was about to unfold before my eyes.

Although Coulter claims she hasn’t cried since she was a child, Radley Balko disagrees: “I’ve seen her cry.”[1]

Coulter, at the age of 37, cried at CPAC in 1999.

I attended that conference as a member of the press and witnessed what Balko would later describe. Coulter was part of a panel, but when the moderator asked her his first discussion question, she got up, went to the podium, and started giving a speech. After a few minutes, she was asked to sit down.

As the panel discussion ensued, it was not long before Coulter griped that she had been hooked off the stage and she was later cross with several audience questioners. Coulter – while still on the panel – sniveled: “Well, I’m already worried about the extent of the White House spin when I get hooked off the stage.”[2]

In what I’m sure the audience originally perceived as a non-event, Coulter turned into a big deal, even accusing the coordinators of skullduggery and the moderator of conspiracy. Since Coulter turned this into an event and leveled accusations against others to cover her own faux pas, let’s look at what really happened.

Gary Nolan, President of Capitol Watch, introduced the event as a panel discussion and introduced Ralph Hallow as the moderator, who, in turn, introduced the panel, and then asked Coulter a discussion question to start things off.

Coulter got up, walked around the moderator to the podium, and began a speech, saying: “I’m going to keep talking until a light goes on.”

In the midst of her soliloquy, Hallow handed her a note telling her to sit down. She ignored his note. Later, Hallow interrupted her again, this time whispering in her ear. Surprised at the interruption, she asked, “Sorry, what do you want me to do?” Puzzled, she asked, “You didn’t want a speech?”

Balko observed, “the panel concluded with Ann struggling to choke back tears. I snuck back behind the panel after the session, of course, hoping to witness more drama. And that’s when I saw Cold-Blooded Coulter in sobbing hysterics. She’d been bullied. And now she was crying.”

Don’t take Balko’s word for it. The Washington Post made a similar observation. Coulter lamented, “The moderator cut me off! I was humiliated in front of 600 people!’ Between sobs, she sucked on a cigarette.”[3]

A minor faux pas became a newspaper headline which opened a window into Coulter’s heart.

Coulter retaliated in a letter-to-the-editor.[4]

“I must write to correct a few of the many egregious misstatements in your Jan. 27 Reliable Source column.

“I am not, and have never been, arm candy for Bob Guccione, Jr. The Gooch was my arm candy – my boy toy – whom I eventually, and regretfully, had to replace with a much younger man.

“As for your report that I might run for the House in order to be taken more seriously, I am puzzled. Would becoming a member of the House really be a step up from being a New York Times bestselling author?[5] If so, I might start really dreaming. Perhaps someday I could trade in a seat on the House subcommittee on sheep-products for the dizzying heights of becoming a no-name gossip columnist for your paper.

“Ann H. Coulter”

In 1997, Coulter told me that she had trouble defending herself using letter-to-the-editor “without sounding defensive and pathetic, no matter how short and sarcastic.” She was right.

Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged provides an in-depth, detailed analysis in this holistic exposé of how and why Coulter has become such a warped human being. This is but one of many CPAC escapades by Coulter presented in Joker.

Joker addresses the physical, mental, emotional, psychological, familial, sexual, and spiritual dimensions which have shaped the Ann Coulter that we know today and it highlights both the positives and the negatives of Coulter’s life and career.

Ann Coulter: From Jingoist to Pacifist

In the space of a few short years, Coulter turned from being a neoconservative zealot to a Fortress America fanatical isolationist and pacifist.

Her current isolationist and nativist obsession with “pointless wars” in foreign lands leads her inevitably to conclude that World War II was also a pointless war.

Coulter’s foreign policy heart lies with that of one of her mentors, Patrick Buchanan.

During the Clinton presidency, Coulter continually denounced the administration’s use of military force overseas, arguing that it was not in our national interest.

In 1997, Coulter said, “I don’t think we should be trying to go around and be the world’s Policeman because you can guess wrong. I mean, we can’t create a beautiful constitutional democracy across the world.”[1]

Bur for fully a decade following 9/11, Coulter was the fiercest armchair war hawk in America. Toward the end of the Obama presidency, Coulter reversed course, returning to her Buchananite foreign policy roots. (She could easily join the “War Is Not the Answer” crowd if it were more pro-American.)

Once a zealous moral and cultural conservative and fervently pro-life – “There’s almost no conversation I couldn’t turn into an abortion discussion.”[2]Coulter turned her back on the unborn for most of the past two decades. Instead, the political realm possessed Coulter, and, following 9/11, Coulter attacked everyone.

My first essay critical of Coulter in BrotherWatch (January 2002) began with these words:

Following the 9/11 terrorist attack, controversial “conservative” columnist Ann Coulter – best known as that “acid-tongued blonde” wearing her trademark micro mini-skirts – appeared to descend into madness. Cutting edge went over the edge. Coulter declared a two-front war against terrorists and liberals. – Right Wing Warrior Princess

Coulter’s stance on the Korean Peninsula is emblematic of her approach to geopolitics. She also hates our pro-Israel policies and would just as well jettison the War on Terror completely. (Coulter always frames terrorist threats as immigration threats,[3] having absolutely no solutions to the domestic threat posed by ISIS and ISIS-inspired terrorists currently in America.)[4]

Of course, her Fortress America paradigm blindly dismisses the very real and existential threats facing America today and in the near future posed by terrorists and tyrannical, America-hating regimes around the world.

Coulter now denounces the Reagan Doctrine’s formulation of “peace through strength” and she appears oblivious to the renaissance of peace and prosperity which Americans enjoy today – due to Trump’s emulation of Reagan’s proven policies.

Coulter’s single-minded fixation with immigration and a wall has given her a myopic perspective on reality and the world in which we live. She has tunnel vision – like a horse with blinders on – and is oblivious to anything which does not fit her own pet paradigm.

As is always the case, anyone who disagrees with her perspective and agenda is a traitor or evil – even though she herself has completely reversed many of her positions over the past two decades. (At one point or another, she could have called herself a traitor.)

Coulter went berserk over Trump’s visit to the Wailing Wall:

On the eve of Trump’s major prime time national address regarding a national crisis on our southern border, Coulter reversed her position, issuing a series of nonsensical tweets attacking President Trump.

The following chart encapsulates a few of Coulter’s transitions and key transformative periods during Coulter’s professional career as a “journalist.”

Ann Coulter Channels Her Inner @AOC

An astonishing thing happened following the 2018 election: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a freshmen congressman from New York, and Ann Hart Coulter, a veteran opinion writer also from New York, mirrored one another in outrageousness, idiocy, policies, and sheer silliness.

I was not alone in seeing the obvious equation: Ann Hart Coulter = Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Dana Perino observed that “AOC is the intellectual leader of the Left.”[1] Coulter has long been regarded as (or, more importantly, regards herself as) an intellectual leader on the Right.

David Wayne tweeted: “AOC is just viewed as the Left’s Ann Coulter.” John Griner tweeted to Coulter: “U are getting as annoying as AOC.”

Speaking of AOC, talk show host Derek Hunter, a friend of AHC, said that AOC’s greatest fault is that “she thinks she knows everything.” The exact same thing could be said of Coulter!

Utterly hilarious Cortez memes populate social media very single day. They are priceless. Her gaffes are legendary … and proving a major liability for the Democrat Party. Similar memes increasingly target Coulter, directly correlating the two.

With her late-onset Trump Derangement Syndrome and full throttle embrace of the #NeverTrump movement, Coulter has become a laughingstock on both the Left and the Right.

AOC and AHC jokes are quickly replacing blonde jokes!

The parallels between, and the parodies of, these two provocateurs proliferate on both social media and in news broadcasts and entertainment.

One adventurous soul even suggested that AHC and AOC run on one ticket for president in 2020.

In almost simultaneously-occurring controversies, AHC and AOC both claimed to be in charge!

AOC simply said, “I’m the boss” while AHC declared, “I’m president of the Trump re-election campaign.”

Both AHC and AOC think they know everything even as they make flabbergasting blunders, and yet they think (or want to think) that they are in charge.

AOC contends: “I think that there’s a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right.” Tucker Carlson calls AOC a “screechy moron,” yet has only high praise for AHC, despite her many, notorious gaffes.

Both AHC and AOC have been featured in comic books. Coulter was 47 years old when her first comic book debuted; AOC was 29 years old. Another Coulter comic book was published in 2017.

Both AHC and AOC are prone to using apocalyptic language to incite their base. (Coulter has been doing this for almost 20 years. Coulter said the world would end if Gore was elected in 2000! And she frequently speaks of impending doom for America and the world if her policies are not put into place.)

Both AHC and AOC have totalitarian tendencies. AOC declares “I’m the boss” and intends to place every aspect of American life under the control of a centralized Progressive (statist) government. Meanwhile, AHC, for over two decades has sought to shape and control the outcome of local, state, and national elections by whatever means necessary.

Coulter has frequently spoken of the “benefits of local fascism,” called for suppression of liberal speech, sought to rescind the 19th Amendment (giving women the right to vote), and called for poll taxes and literacy tests for voting.

Ever the control freak, Coulter wants to control the mechanisms and policies of government. She has often joked (but, seriously, folks!) about using Tinder to determine who can immigrate to America.

AHC, like AOC, thinks that she is – or should be – the boss!

Both are incredibly obsessed with identity politics!

(The hyperlinks in the above chart are active in the free PDF book, Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged.)

AHC differs from AOC in that she is more professional, polished, and nuanced that AOC (except when she is not).

How Ann Coulter Became a Psychopath

Ann Coulter has long been recognized as a high-end narcissist.

Where is Coulter on the Narcissism Spectrum? The following chart offers my perspective.[1]

Narcissism Spectrum

Coulter could learn much from George H.W. Bush. Sen. Alan Simpson’s tribute to the later George H.W. Bush included these words: “He was a man of such great humility. Those who traveled the high road of humility in Washington D.C. are not bothered by heavy traffic.”

But Coulter won’t. For her, other people are merely “’objects’ that [she moves] around to meet [her] needs.” This objectification of people falls in well with the sociopathic and psychopathic traits discussed below. It also explains Coulter’s willingness – even eagerness – to betray friends, colleagues, and other people who trust her!

Narcissists have shame over public exposure of their faults, but they project their personal (private) guilt (if they have any) onto others. For narcissists, appearances matter far more than reality. They want to feel good about themselves.

Coulter gets her validation and approval – and her sense of self-worth – through praise, book sales, talk show appearances, red carpet events, networking and cavorting with elites of all kinds, her socio-economic status, being seen as a mover and shaker and as a sex symbol, and wielding the power of a provocateur to provoke others (controlling their emotions) while remaining unscathed from the consequences.

As a narcissist, Coulter has a desperate need to control everything so that nothing can bring her shame.

Coulter was raised in a shame-based family and religious culture and shame is her greatest fear.

Did you know that Coulter also ranks high on a scale for sociopaths and that she is a mid-range psychopath?

Degrees of Sociopathy and Psychopathy

There is often a correlation between narcissism and sociopathy and/or psychopathy.

Coulter registers at the high end of the Sociopath Scale and is probably mid-range on the Psychopath Scale.

Sociopath and Psychopath Scales

I have never seen Ann express or exhibit guilt over hurting people, whether personally or professionally. Indeed, she takes delight in provoking people, enjoys employing elimination rhetoric, and loves attacking the recently dead and grieving.

Ann experiences no guilt over anything and exhibits no shame in attacking and wounding others. But she does experience shame when it comes to herself. She hates criticism of herself, hates being viewed as a liar, racist, or fool. She feels shame when she fails to measure up to her various self-identities, such as beauty, brains, and balls. She feels shame when her jokes fall flat, her witticisms are proven witless, and her credentials are credibly challenged.

In other words, any shame Ann feels is because of how people view her as opposed to how she treats others. Her shame in inward-oriented, not outward-directed. The world could end tomorrow and she would be fine with that as long as the world loved her.

Twenty years ago, Ann boasted that she was obsessed with biographies of serial killers (“studies of serial killers”), saying, “I actually am sort of interested in it.”[2] Would she, herself, kill anyone? I doubt that. Does she take pleasure in the death of other people? Quite often. Did she, as a child, exhibit cruelty toward animals or insects? I don’t know. But, throughout her career as a journalist, she has exhibited cruelty toward her fellow human beings.[3]

As noted on Quora (emphasis added): “Her pronouncements may seem outlandish and are often astoundingly untrue, but she has a sociopath’s flair for framing her actions in a moral or noble way. When she is exposed in a lie, she dramatically plays a martyr. … I think she cares about having lots of attention and making lots of money. When she inevitably loses popularity, she will become ever more desperate, even clownish in her attempts to get the attention that every narcissist needs so badly. Intelligence and self-insight don’t always go together. I think she is capable of experiencing triumph, but never peace or true happiness.  It is sad.”

So sad. Ann is truly to be pitied.

How, why, and to what extent did Ann Coulter become a psychopath? For in-depth answers, see Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged!

Death is Sexier Than Sex to Ann Coulter

According to one psychologist (emphasis added): “[Ann Coulter] most likely cannot achieve sexual satisfaction without extreme fetishes if at all, her interpersonal relationships are probably rocky with few real friends, and she is most likely an insecure, lonely, aging wreck at the end of the day. Think fatal attraction material without the actions.”[1]

ConvertOrDie

This column’s title, “Death is Sexier Than Sex to Ann Coulter” is borrowed from my friend, Lydia Cornell from her 2005 column. Her “facetious” title is far more accurate than anyone could have grasped at the time and, indeed, is prescient regarding Coulter’s devolution of character and descent into darkness.

Coulter responded to Lydia by doxing her on the front page of Coulter’s website with the caption, “Death is certainly sexier than Lydia Cornell. Wait until I tell her about the death camps I have planned for liberals.”

Wow! Elimination rhetoric to the max. (Coulter left Lydia’s private information on her website for a full year, encouraging an abundance of hate mail and stalkers.)

Lydia concluded, “I didn’t realize the extent to which hate and death are such a turn-on for Coulter.”

Coulter does, indeed, have dark fantasies. She has an obsession with making bogus rape accusations (with herself as the victim) to achieve her political ends. She frequently delights in fantasizing about liberals being sodomized in jail.

Coulter Gang Raped

In a shocking interview, Coulter told Sunday Times Magazine (emphasis added): “I like being sexually assaulted.”[2]

Discussing the #MeToo movement, Coulter boasted (emphasis added): “I’ve had very, very aggressive men push me beyond where I’ve wanted to go. I thought it was a great date. I don’t think of it as an assault. I have fond memories.”

In light of that, Coulter’s familiarity with anal sex and fisting give one pause. Coulter as dominatrix has been a popular meme for twenty years.

Coulter - POTUS

For over fifty years – beginning as a kindergartener – Coulter has engaged in a battle of wills to achieve political supremacy and victory.

Apparently, her political confrontational style has crossed over into her romantic and sexual relationships, wherein she seeks a worthy opponent to subdue (or be subdued by).

Now, she confesses that she is “dying to be date raped.” Wow! (What would Mother think? Father?)[3]

No wonder Coulter employs elimination rhetoric so often, never misses a chance to taunt the recently deceased and bereaved, and appears utterly devoid of empathy. Remember, in 2006, Coulter was already being called “cruel.”

Death

How did Coulter become so cruel? Why are hatred and death such turn-ons for Coulter? Why has the dark side taken over so much of Coulter’s heart, worldview, and life? For answers, see Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged!

Ann Coulter: Betrayer Extraordinaire

Ann Coulter and I became friends in the summer of 1997, or so I thought. My side was real; hers faux.

Ann Coulter’s Betrayals

During that time, I gave her everything she asked for and more. Ann was delighted with her Alamo Award, writing to me, “I love those quotes. that is much better than an interview would have been. they are totally, totally great. yes, please, please drop off or send as many copies as you can part with – I’m going to use it as part of my press packet. I had forgotten making most of those remarks but they do sound awfully familiar. thank you for compiling them” [SIC].

But I quickly discovered certain disturbing things about her. In mid-August, Ann was irate over little details contained in items about, and profiles of, her in three different publications.

She asked me to write letters-to-the-editor on her behalf. (I discovered that she routinely scoured the media for anything about her and that she hated any criticism of any kind, no matter how miniscule.)[1]

Ann found my letters-to-the-editor to be lacking in usefulness and, therefore, concluded that I was no longer useful to her. She dumped me with a nasty email. (I later discovered that she threw everything I had given her in the trash.)

But 12 days later, Ann feigned friendship to get back one of those things she had foolishly thrown away: an 11-page collection of Coulter quote highlights from her appearances on TV.

Having gotten what she wanted, she again dumped me (without telling me so this time). Instead, she made numerous false promises, keeping none of them during a four-month period.

When I confronted her about her behavior, she lashed out at me, using a strikingly similar argument she used to her boss at Human Events (without directing any hostility to him).

Coulter has turned her back on (and been rejected by) friends, colleagues, and organizations who were once her champions and benefactors. I remember Coulter saying on Politically Incorrect that she never remembers ex-boyfriends once they become exes. Apparently, her anti-social behavior applies to everyone.

Coulter once boasted of betraying her boss, Sen. Spencer Abraham (R-MI), when she was his staffer in 1995-96. Coulter secretly worked with other senate staffers opposed to Abraham’s immigration agenda. (Coulter was Deep State before the term was invented. No wonder she doesn’t attack the Deep State opposing Trump!)

At the very same time she betrayed me in 1997, she betrayed Paula Jones by leaking attorney-client privileged information to scuttle the settlement Jones’ desperately sought and she betrayed her employer,[2] the Center for Individual Rights, by engaging in a “pro-bono” political case CIR would have shunned (that’s why she kept her activities so secret).

In 1998, Coulter plagiarized both the words and the work of her colleague at Human Events, Michael Chapman, to write her first bestselling book, High Crimes and Misdemenaors. She has never given him due credit for his contribution and she even claimed that she’d never heard of him.[3]

In 1999 and on other occasions, Coulter frequently lied to her friend, Geraldo Rivera, on-air, about her connection with Linda Tripp’s tapes and other issues.

In 2000, Coulter sought to betray the people of Connecticut by running a “total sham campaign” for Congress.[4]

Over a period of many years, Coulter betrayed a host of individuals and organizations who had been very supportive of her.

Her fans are no exception. That’s what she did with me in 1996-97, emailing me her TV appearance schedule so that I could videotape her, transcribe highlights, promote her in my newsletter, and write supportive letters-to-the-editor on her behalf. Then, “Goodbye!”

Coulter forsook her own loyal fan club, one still linked on her website, seemingly for no reason whatsoever (the missing link remains missing).

In September 2017, Coulter boasted of having “TWO fan pages,” but by that December, she severed ties with her long-standing fan club.

Her now defunct fan club had a widely-used forum which promoted her books, columns, speeches, and other events. It vigorously discussed her columns and defended her from spurious attacks. And it actively aided her in organizing and setting up events across the country. They gave her 100% loyalty.

In the end, Coulter has also betrayed her readers and the American People with lies and fabrications, making things up from her own imagination. This was especially true during the past five presidential election cycles during which she defamed any candidate who threatened her chosen nominee.[5]

Let’s look beneath Coulter’s faux humanity. She revealed the real Coulter in an interview for The Drive Home (9/29/16): a phony hypocrite who pretends to like those she hates.

Speaking of conservatives opposed to Trump, Coulter boasted (emphasis added), “But all the people that I had to be talked into liking before because they’re technically on my side, whoa, they’re all gone now.”

Her next words: “I don’t have to pretend I like them anymore. It was all the ones I hated. Gone, gone, gone.”

Hear that, conservatives! Coulter no longer has to pretend to like you. Talk about phony! She really hated you all along!

You are now “gone, gone, gone” down into her personal memory hole. Except, naturally for her, Coulter never forgives and she never forgets.

A split microsecond later, Coulter singled out one name: “John Podhoretz.” (Podhoretz, a former friend and ally, incensed Coulter by shaming her inexcusable behavior.)

A few seconds later, Coulter claimed, “I don’t have to defend the people who were the most embarrassing to our side.”

(Who is the real embarrassment, Ann?)

In the end, Coulter has betrayed a host of people, groups, and organizations.[6]

For many years, post-9/11, Coulter betrayed the American Conservative Union and CPAC on numerous occasions.

In 2017, Coulter trashed her decades-long friendship with Sean Hannity in an extremely petty manner.

Also, in 2017, Coulter trashed her beloved Charles Murray and a 19-year-old Cornell student with one tweet.

In 2019, Coulter even threw her long-time good friends, George and Kellyanne Conway, under the bus.[7] (Ann was Kellyanne’s bridesmaid!)

Her one-time friend and ideological mentor, author Joseph Sobran, wrote that lies are betrayal! (emphasis added):[8]

A lie is not just a statement that isn’t “accurate.” It’s a personal betrayal. It means you are a traitor to whomever you are talking to. You make him a fool for trusting you in the way we all have to be able to trust each other for life to go along. You’re willing to turn his good faith against him for your selfish advantage. You treat him not as your friend or fellow citizen, but as your prey.

For the entire 22 years that I have known Ann, she has been adept at manipulating people. She uses them and then throws them away.

Many conservative organizations fawned over Coulter as she became a conservative icon and “goddess of the conservative movement.” Among them, the Claire Booth Luce Policy Institute, Young America’s Foundation, the American Conservative Union, and the Media Research Center. All of them granted Coulter lucrative speaking fees and/or promoted her work. They have all since effectively boycotted Coulter.

In 2017, Turning Point USA, sponsored her speeches, but not in 2018, even though its four-day conference was held in West Palm Beach, FL, which Coulter calls her home (she was actually in town during the conference!).[9]

Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged provides an in-depth, detailed analysis this holistic exposé of how and why Coulter became such an untrustworthy human being.

Joker addresses the physical, mental, emotional, psychological, familial, sexual, and spiritual dimensions which have shaped the Coulter that we know today and it highlights both the positives and the negatives of Coulter’s life and career.

Ann’s brokenness provides an object lesson for all of us and, hopefully, this book will act as an intervention to help Ann face her brokenness and seek healing and restoration.

Endnotes:

[1]              Even now, Coulter is known to report derogatory social media comments about her. She will often report negative tweets about her to the Guardians of Twitter. Has she nothing better to do?

[2]              Coulter ruined Paula Jones’ life by thrusting her into an unwanted media maelstrom which ultimately destroyed Paula’s marriage.

[5]              Of course, Coulter has famously betrayed Trump for over two years.

[7]              On 3/19/19, Coulter doubled down, tweeting, “Trump should declare Kellyanne Conway’s marriage a national emergency.” Remember, Ann and Kellyanne were long-time best friends and Coulter introduced George to Kellyanne and was her bridesmaid. This displays a total lack of conscience or simple human decency.
