Coulter’s Beyoncé Blunders

Ann Coulter stuffed so much nonsense into just one tweet that she enraged Beyoncé fans and kicked reason and decency in the head.

coulters-beyonce-blunders

Coulter’s tweet:

“Beyonce, cited by Michelle Obama as role model for her daughters, sings about ‘pussy curvalicious, served delicious.’ Oh my. I just fainted.”

Sarcasm notwithstanding, Coulter was wrong on the singer, mangled the lyrics, offered a tortured interpretation of those lyrics, and confused sexual assault with a provocatively poetic expression of consensual sex in marriage.

Coulter was as wrong as wrong can be. Again.

  • Coulter cited the wrong singer. The lyrics were rapped by Nicki Minaj, not Beyoncé.
  • Coulter mangled the lyrics. Coulter transposed the first two words, mutilating the rhythm of the rhyme. The actual lyrics are: “Curvalicious, pussy served delicious.”
  • Coulter tortured the interpretation of those lyrics. Defending Trump from allegations of sexual assault, Coulter missed the significance of consensual sex in those lyrics. As reported by Mediaite: “By referring to her privates as something being ‘served,’ Minaj is, in effect, giving her partner her consent, which a woman being grabbed ‘by the pussy’ by a famous man has not done.”
  • Coulter equated sexual talk with sexual assault. Intent upon absolving Trump of guilt for gloating over grabbing women “by the pussy,” Coulter spotlights the word “pussy” (a word she herself frequently uses). However, as Mediaite also observes, “most of Trump’s detractors are not as outraged by the word ‘pussy’ as they are by Trump telling Billy Bush that famous men can get away with grabbing women by the pussy.” It’s assault, not talk!
  • Coulter concluded by mocking Trump’s victims. “Oh my. I just fainted.” No! Innocent women have been sexually assaulted by a rich, powerful, and famous man. Coulter was and remains aghast over Bill Clinton’s treatment of women, yet rushes to Trump’s defense over similar charges.

For Coulter, this is all about ideology, not reality. It is about power, not morality. It is about winning an election, not doing the right thing. Apparently, the end really does justify the means to these people.

John O’Sullivan writes:

“In 2001, before anyone saw the Donald as a presidential aspirant, I wrote a critique in National Review of his interviews with Howard Stern in which he discussed women in terms I thought ungallant. My attack wasn’t political, even though Trump was then a Democrat, but its message was sternly disapproving. … Those interviews (which were on the record) were not very different from the notorious videotape. They were vulgar, crass, shameless, and silly sexual boasting – the kind of thing (second only to intrusive women sports reporters) that prompts me to avoid locker rooms. Above all, however, they were known about and readily available.”

Now that the pussy’s out of the bag, so to speak, Trump’s cadre of female shills have turned truth upside down to salvage what remains of Trump’s reputation. Coulter’s Beyoncé tweet is emblematic of those unsavory efforts.

Sacrifice Deferred

In yet another attack against Gold Star Families, Ann Coulter claims (10/5/16): “I must have accidentally been out of the country for a few days because I missed the part where Trump insulted the Khans.” (Coulter continues to put herself and our country to shame.)

sacrifice-deferred

Overlooking his slight against Ghazala Khan for not speaking at the DNC convention, Trump’s very life is an affront to all those who have served in the U.S. military. Consider Trump’s response to a Gold Star Father.

Khizr Khan said: “Our son, Humayun, had dreams … of being a military lawyer, but he put those dreams aside the day he sacrificed his life to save the lives of his fellow soldiers. … You have sacrificed nothing and no one.”

Trump’s response was typically arrogant and boastful. The braggart bragged: “I think I made a lot of sacrifices. I work very, very hard. I’ve created thousands and thousands of jobs, tens of thousands of jobs.”

Remember how we all laughed when Gwyneth Paltrow claimed, “You come across [online comments] about yourself and about your friends, and it’s a very dehumanizing thing … It’s almost like how, in war, you go through this bloody, dehumanizing thing, and then something is defined out of it.”

Paltrow knows nothing about war and Trump knows nothing about self-sacrifice. Trump’s boast is just as ludicrous as Paltrow’s, equating the pursuit of entrepreneurial profits with giving one’s life for one’s country.

Instead of courageously serving his country, Trump obtained five draft deferments to deliberately avoid doing his duty to God and country.

Having escaped the dangers of battle and potentially death or disfigurement, Trump later spoke of the dangers of living in America (emphasis added): “I’ve been so lucky in terms of that whole world … It is a dangerous world out there – it’s scary, like Vietnam. Sort of like the Vietnam era. It is my personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave soldier.”

Indeed, Trump claims that his attendance at New York Military Academy provided “more training militarily than a lot of the guys that go into the military.”

Donald Trump’s whole life is an insult the Khans and to the brave men and women who daily risk their lives and sacrifice their dreams to defend our freedom. For Trump to equate his hard work with their genuine sacrifice exposes a black hole in his heart and a nonexistent conscience.

Coulter’s Unrequited Love

Ann Coulter’s latest, deepest, and most sorrowful love is Donald Trump.

Coulter’s Unrequited Love

As reported in The Times (emphasis added):

“At present, though, as near as I can tell, the great love of her life is Donald Trump. ‘I’ve been doing nothing but watching Trump on TV,’ she says. ‘I wish there was a Trump channel where you could just watch him 24 hours a day. I’d never sleep.’”

Seriously? Believe it.

When she was asked to describe her actual relationship with Trump, Coulter replied, “Blind worship.”[1] Coulter amplified her answer, “It’s a little like the North Korean people with their dear, dear leader.”

Coulter eagerly admits that she would actually like to marry him! Yes, marry! “I totally would [marry Trump if he were single].”

What is it that sets Ann’s heart all aflutter? Well, it all began with “that Mexican rapist speech [that] won my heart forever.” Huh? Again, “He won my heart with that Mexican rapist speech. That won me over.”[2]

OK.

Coulter’s Trump love is really self-love. Coulter said, “I also think he’s like the alpha male doppelganger of me.” Perhaps looking in the mirror, Coulter exclaimed, “Donald Trump, I love him because he does talk a little like me, which is to say, blunt.”[3]

For about a year, Coulter has called Trump “the greatest candidate for president ever”[4] and “the candidate I’ve been dreaming of.”[5]

Hers is a self-sacrificial love, according to The Times:

“For his sake, she says, she has been prepared to wreck her career. While he campaigned in the primaries, she followed him from state to state, appearing on local talk radio shows. She met with Trump and told him: ‘I’m the only one losing money trying to get you in the White House, you’re going to listen to me.’”

Well, maybe more demanding than self-sacrificial. Trump must toe her line. After Trump’s immigration flip-flop, a piqued Coulter joked, “He just said something stupid, which he’s done before, and he will do again … he does need a little slap now and then.” And Coulter is happy to do the slapping. (Sounds more like a nagging girlfriend than true love to me.)

In what could be termed a lovers’ spat, on the very day of Coulter’s book launch, Trump sabotaged her paean to him by betraying the central premise of her book and its raison d’etre. Trump flip-flopped on immigration.

Coulter-Trump Headlines

Did Trump pick that particular moment in time due to political expediency or to reverse his abysmal poll numbers? Or was it, perhaps, something more personal – a battle between two unyielding narcissists.

Ego vs. ego. Narcissist vs. narcissist.

Perhaps it was months of Coulter taking credit for Trump’s policies. As reported by Breitbart News, “Coulter’s last book, Adios, America, provided a blueprint of sorts for Trump’s campaign.”

Perhaps Trump bristles at the thought of Coulter being called “Trump’s Brain.”

Perhaps it was the Times headline: “The woman who tells Donald Trump what to think.”

I'm in charge

In July 2015, acting like a petulant, jilted lover, Coulter grumbled, “Yes [Trump got an advance copy of Adios, America!], I’ve been broadcasting it like mad. I don’t know why he won’t admit it. … I’ve detailed everything he’s saying. He gives the campaign speeches on it. My book is the footnotes.”[6]

Now, over one year later, Trump truly jilted Coulter. (Trump hasn’t even read Coulter’s book-length love letter to him.)

Ann does not take rejection well.

Mocking Spastic Retards is OK

Ann Coulter just made a fool of herself.[1] Again.[2]

Mocking Spastic Retards is OK

This time Coulter defended Donald Trump’s mocking of a disabled journalist, using four rather obtuse and irrational arguments: 1) that Trump was doing “full-on spastic retard” (which is perfectly acceptable in her eyes) and not mocking a “journalist with disabilities,” 2) that the disabled journalist deserved to be mocked, 3) what we plainly see on video is not really what we see, and 4) we have been brainwashed into instantly believing everything bad the media says about Trump.

Coulter made these four arguments on the Opie & Jimmy Show (8/22/16).

Mocking Spastic Retards is OK

First, Coulter denied the proof that was literally before her eyes, claiming that Trump’s “spastic retard” performance “was not an exaggeration” of the reporter’s disability. She said, “[Trump] was doing full on retard. That’s not what this guy is. … He’s doing spastic retard.”

CqidSnsXgAA92Bp.jpg large

Yes, Coulter’s defense of Trump for mocking a disabled reporter is that he was really just mocking a generic retarded person. Moreover, Coulter insists[3] that calling people retarded and mocking them thusly is perfectly acceptable behavior.[4] Coulter is wont to use the R-word without hesitation.

The Disabled Journalist Deserved Being Mocked

But, Coulter conceded, if Trump were mocking a reporter for his disability, then the reporter deserved it. (Yes, blame the victim, not the victimizer.)

Coulter argued, “He’s not making fun of a guy’s disability but if he were, he deserves it.” Why did the disabled journalist “deserve” to be mocked with a “full-on spastic retard” routine? Because he lied about Trump.

Readers may recall that Coulter also sided with the victimizer and attacked the victim[5] in a well-reported case of physical assault by Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, on reporter Michelle Fields. Coulter went so far as to ridicule Fields by jokingly claiming that she (Coulter) had been gang-raped.[6]

Don’t Believe Your Lying Eyes

Again, while watching he video of Trump’s actions – in slow motion and freeze-framed – Coulter preposterously repeated, “That hand is not bent.”

(Recall the absurdity and audacity of other propagandistic pronouncements: ISIS is on the run, America has never been safer, the border is secure. They demonstrate that propagandists like Coulter[7] have no shame.[8])

George Orwell accurately portrayed how propagandists operate.[9]

Don’t believe your lying eyes! Believe what I tell you that you are seeing! (Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. Those aren’t the droids you’re looking for.)

Brainwashed by the Media

Having failed to convince her hosts that Trump was not mocking the journalist and that they shouldn’t believe their own eyes, Coulter then blamed the co-hosts for disagreeing with her. (Remember, she first blamed the journalist and then the media and now the co-hosts – for being duped by the media. But, remember, Trump is innocent, innocent, innocent.)

Likening the mainstream media in America to Pravda, Coulter claimed that the American people have become so brainwashed that they immediately succumb to whatever the particular lie of the moment might be. Coulter asserted that the co-hosts had become so brainwashed by media bias that they were incapable of accurately interpreting the very clear video that they were viewing.

Coulter’s message: You can’t think for yourself. Let me tell you what you should believe.

But, since we can’t trust Coulter,[10] why should we trust Trump?

Coulter’s Perfect Presidential Candidate

Having previously called Mitt Romney the “perfect candidate” for both the 2012 and 2016 election cycles, now propagandist Ann Coulter declares Donald Trump to be “the perfect presidential candidate.”

Coulter’s Perfect Presidential Candidate

In an astonishing interview on the Opie & Jimmy Show (8/22/16), Coulter exclaimed:

“I would not have sat back in a laboratory and designed Donald Trump as my perfect presidential candidate but now that’s it’s happened, I realize that ‘Oh my Gosh, he is the perfect presidential candidate.’”

What makes Trump her perfect candidate? Here are some of the traits she concludes are necessary for a perfect candidate: “It’s not like we looked around the country and said, ‘We need a boorish, coarse reality TV star. I wanna make that man president.’” Her book describes Trump as “a tasteless, publicity‐seeking, coarse, billionaire, reality TV star.”

But Coulter concludes that those negatives are actually positives. Coulter claims, “It turns out, that is exactly what we needed.”

Why? Because Trump is coarse enough and boorish enough to withstand the media onslaught against him. In her mind, his tasteless ego is like the protective scales of a dragon.

As it turns out, narcissism (something Coulter is acquainted with) is good. Coulter concludes: “If it takes a narcissist to do that, we need more narcissists running for public office.” (Coulter redefines narcissist as “a self‐confident alpha male.”)

Coulter claimed, on the Opie & Jimmy Show, that Trump’s “problems are purely stylistic. Hillary’s are, she’s a corrupt liar who will only serve Wall Street.” (Hasn’t she heard, so is Trump?)

(I suspect people without character do not value people with character. Perhaps these charlatans only see people with character and integrity as potential rubes.)

Coulter also claimed, “What everyone loves about Trump are his positions,” adding, “It’s 100% Trump’s issues which have propelled him to the top.”

Whoa! Seriously? Trump’s positions change on a daily, if not hourly, basis.

In her book, Coulter claims, “Trump is like a Shakespearean ‘fool’: he seems crass because he speaks the truth.” Even Coulter has admitted that Trump is a fraud and “mental,” so one wonders why she would lie so spectacularly.

Here are a few possibilities: 1) Coulter is used to being a propagandist; 2) Coulter is selling herself and her books; 3) Coulter has staked her reputation and career on a Trump victory; and 4) Coulter views herself and Trump as only saviors of America.

Regardless of the reasons for Coulter’s subterfuge, her “perfect candidate” is the worst possible option of Republicans, for constitutional conservatism, and for America. Of all the GOP candidates, Trump is the only one who could actually lose to Hillary. Coulter’s latest RINO will ensure that Democrats win the White House (and Congress?) this November.

Ann Coulter Pence-ive

With Conservatism and the American Dream on the precipice of disaster, will Ann Coulter choose to save herself or America? Will she continue to place pride above principles[1] or, in an abrupt about face, to actually do the right thing.

Pence-ive

Donald Trump’s selection of pro-immigration Gov. Mike Pence (IN) as his running mate places Coulter in a predicament, especially since her primary (if not sole) reason for supporting Trump is what she perceives as his strong stand against immigration.

For over a year,[2] Coulter has insisted – promised, vowed – that Donald Trump[3] is the only one we can trust to build a wall and stop immigration.[4]

Early this May, Coulter astonishingly claimed: “I’m bitter and cynical enough on immigration that I don’t trust anyone not to betray us. But if there was ever a candidate we could believe will build a wall and stop the mass importation of the Third World, it’s Trump.”[5]

But Trump has already proven that his immigration policy is malleable in order to reach consensus with the establishment. His pledge for a wall and deportation of illegal aliens are merely starting points for negotiation and will be retracted for expediency and making deals with Congress.

Even as Trump spoke of being flexible and willing to negotiate a grand deal (“comprehensive immigration reform” anyone?), Coulter continued to extol his virtues (as invisible as they might be) while besmirching all his detractors as corrupt or crazy[6]all the while opposing the one conservative candidate with a proven record on immigration – Ted Cruz.[7]

Aghast at the very thought of Trump choosing Pence for vice president, Coulter erupted with a tirade.[8]

For a fleeting moment, I hoped that she would see through Trump’s flimflam and realize that he will never fulfill her dreams. Immigration remains the single issue that matters most to her, yet she continues – to this day – to support Trump, the one candidate who has proven himself untrustworthy on this (and every other) issue.[9]

Will Coulter now abandon her commitment to a border wall and a moratorium on immigration – national policies she claims are essential to saving America as we know it – merely to salvage her pride and sell more books?

If Coulter has any integrity at all, she will denounce Trump, support a delegate revolt at the GOP Convention, and endorse Sen. Ted Cruz (TX), the only conceivable candidate who could both defeat Hillary this November and, once in office, be trusted to follow the Constitution and to make preservation of national sovereignty and American identity a top priority.

It will take more than integrity for Coulter to do the right thing. It will also take incredible courage – courage to admit that she was wrong about Trump[10] and that she lied about Cruz.[11]

Will Coulter place her own pride above the best interests of this nation (and the world), continuing to do what she has always done by taking the path of least resistance?[12]

Or will Ann do what she knows in her heart is the right thing to do? Will she trust in God, seek His will, and do it?

Ann regards Trump as her Savior.[13] If she would look to her real Savior – Jesus Christ[14] – then she could be filled with courage to do the right thing.[15] Will she?

(Have a little faith, Ann.)

Trump Ignores Coulter, Ann Irate

Trump consigliere Ann Coulter is irate at her Savior. (Not our Savior, Jesus Christ. Her Savior, Donald Trump.)

Ann Irate

The Donald ignored Coulter’s painstaking advice for selection of his vice presidential running mate and chose Gov. Mike Pence (IN).

In her column (7/6/16), Coulter vilified fiery former House Speaker Newt Gingrich only to have Trump choose milquetoast Pence. Apparently, Little Hands Donald feared being upstaged by his own running mate.

Coulter vented her wrath on Facebook and Twitter.

Coulter’s Principal Facebook Posting

Coulter considers Pence “the combo platter of disasters.”

Pence 03

Coulter’s First Set of Tweets (reverse chronical order)

Coulter contends her “next-door neighbor” or Harriet Myers would be better options. Given Coulter’s prior vitriol against Myers, I hope her neighbor is well-armed.

Pence 01

Coulter’s Second Set of Tweets (reverse chronical order)

In a state of denial, hoping the nightmare would soon pass, Coulter declared Gingrich to be the only worse possible VP choice.

Pence 02

Subsequent tweets continue to tar and feather Trump’s selection. The smartest women in the world disagrees with the choice made by the best candidate she’s ever seen.

Will Coulter continue to attack her presumptive VP, and, in effect, attack Trump himself?

Or will avarice and self-interest inevitably prevail?

Trump is, after all, her current meal ticket and subject of her next book.
