Ann Coulter – POWERless?

Once among the most powerful women in American politics, Ann Coulter has become arguably the most hated and most mockable woman in America.

powerless

In a remarkable interview for Politico, Coulter claimed: “I don’t care about power. I don’t care about credit.” She added, “I couldn’t care less,” asserting, “I intensely don’t care about that.”

That would be a first.

Coulter has always cared about power and always cared about credit. So much so that she has sought power most of her adult life and claimed credit where it is not due. Coulter is an elite’s elite who loves wielding power.

According to an ex-boyfriend of Coulter’s from the late 1990s, “She became infatuated with her exploding celebrity, and really got caught up in that Republican heroine thing, and forgot that it was shtick.” (My own observations these past twenty years validate his assessment.)

That remarkable Politico interview included this breathtaking claim, “I really just want to save America.” That is precisely what Coulter has been trying to do for two decades. To accomplish her goals, Coulter has – again, for two decades – attacked pro-lifers, Christians, and conservatives who even potentially stand in the way of her agenda.

Hence her growing irrelevancy within the conservative movement. Some organizations now shun her. Some friends now disown her. Why? Because Ann Coulter cannot be trusted.

Just this election cycle, Coulter 1) fervently campaigned for Paul Nehlen (WI), who lost in a stunning defeat; 2) had her own presidential candidate sabotage her paean to Trump; 3) published a book which failed to make the New York Times bestseller list despite all of the advantages inherent in releasing a pro-Trump book during a volatile election year; and 4) was humiliated at the Roast of Ann Coulter with Rob Lowe.

But if Coulter’s claim of not caring about power is true, well, then that’s a good thing for Coulter because she’s rapidly becoming powerless.

I wanted to shoot my TV

Ann Coulter is renowned for her employment of elimination rhetoric and her desire to kill people and nuke nations. Now, she sets her sights on her own television set!

In a rather strange interview with Politico, Coulter both commended Donald Trump as a fantastic and magnificent presidential candidate and also expressed her frequent frustration with himgetting the details wrong” and going off-script.

So much so that Coulter said three times: “I wanted to shoot my TV.”

Drop the gun, Ann. Leave your poor TV alone. Don’t blame your TV, blame your candidate.

(Don’t blame #NeverTrump, blame Trump’s failures, flaws, fabrications, and fantasies.)

Ann, may I suggest: Turn off your TV.     Put on more nicotine patches.     Calm down (it’s only one election).     Fess up (confession is good for the soul).

Remember, Trump is your candidate. You picked him. You deified him. You own him. You have only yourself to blame.

GOP Base is Fringe

Coulter recently gave a stunning description of the GOP base. She claims it is a “teeny, tiny base” composed of religious zealots and extremist pro-lifers!

Coulter defended charges that Trump is “not a real Republican” by saying (emphasis added), “I don’t want someone appealing just to the base. Somebody appealing just to the base is, you know, handling tongues and having raptures on stage and is saying, like Marco Rubio, correcting Megyn Kelly, that, ‘No, I don’t support abortion in the case of rape and incest.’ Oh, good grief. Did he not remember – did he not live through Todd Akin? No, that’s sucking up to a teeny, tiny base.”

Yes, Coulter’s gunsights are aimed at Christian conservatives and pro-lifers – whom she claims represent “a teeny, tiny base.” Alert readers will gather that Ted Cruz is the specific object of her wrath. (Cruz, of course, is solidly pro-life and unabashedly Christian.)

Beginning with the 2000 presidential election cycle, Coulter has actively opposed pro-lifers for what she regards as politically pragmatic purposes. Nevertheless, Coulter told a Politicon audience, “I’m an evangelical pro-lifer. I don’t need my president speaking in tongues.” Yes, she again blended the pro-life movement with evangelical Christians. (Coulter even claims to be an “evangelical pro-lifer,” even though evidence for her being either a Christian or a pro-lifer is scant.)

Using her recurring ugly stereotype on the Nowman Show (6/25/16), Coulter argued, “[Trump] doesn’t have religious ecstasies on stage. He doesn’t speak in tongues.” Coulter will say anything to destroy Cruz.

Sadly, time after time, Coulter attacks Christians for behaving as Christians are supposed to behave – in a godly manner. Why? Political expediency? To justify her own ungodly behavior?

Coulter hated every GOP candidate but Trump – who isn’t even a Republican! Moreover, her mission was and remains to destroy the GOP. Coulter’s latest broadside against the GOP base is in keeping with her ultimate goal. She does, after all, want to form a New Trump Party.

Coulter’s Book is NOT a Best Seller

In Trump We Trust is the second Ann Coulter book to not make the New York Times bestseller list. (Never Trust a Liberal Over 3 was her other failure.)

In an interview with Politico, Coulter praised Trump for his clever marketing strategy to increase her book sales. She said, “I think Trump accomplished three things by the fake-out on the softening. No. 1 one, most importantly, he helped promote my book.” Actually, that alleged strategy failed.

Coulter’s book debuts on the “Also Selling” portion of the New York Times bestseller list on September 18, 2016. Rank: 17.

What happened to all those Donald Trump lovers on the Trump Train? Either they don’t love Coulter as much or they don’t really love Trump.
