One wacky nut job to another – Trump v Coulter

Once a strong support of Donald trump for president and as president, Ann Coulter has turned against him. In the weekend she blasted Trump over lack of progress on the US-Mexico border wall, and as he does when criticised, Trump has turned on her. In a recent tweet he called Coulter ‘a wacky nut job’, which is pot, kettle stuff.

Fox News has also been a strong supporter of Trump, and this is playing out on Fox.

Fox News in January:  Ann Coulter rips Trump over border wall on Bill Maher’s show after attacking president via Twitter

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter both blasted and defended President Trump during an appearance on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” on Friday night — hours after she ripped into the president on Twitter for cutting a deal with Democrats to temporarily end the partial government shutdown without funding for his border wall.

“I promise you the country would be run much better if I had a veto over what Donald Trump is doing. It’s crazy that I expect a president to keep the promise he made every day for 18 months”.

“Why hasn’t Trump been able to get it through for the first two years? Because the Republicans don’t want it.”

She also said “someone has got to read the Constitution to him” when asked if she thought Trump would declare a national emergency on the southern border in order to get work started on the wall.

During Trump’s State of the Union address to Congress in February, Coulter labeled the speech as “the lamest, sappiest, most intentionally tear-jerking SOTU ever.”

During the weekend:

Coulter, a far right commentator, may only have a relatively small support base, but Trump seems to be gradually pissing off more and more former supporters.

Jess Watters and Donald J. Trump aren’t being very honest. Trump’s approval rating dropped from 45.5 (aggregate) soon after he took office and hasn’t recovered since, peaking at 43.1 last October and now on 41.8.

Meanwhile  In budget, Trump to ask Congress for $8.6 billion for border wall

President Donald Trump on Monday will ask the U.S. Congress for an additional $8.6 billion to help pay for the wall he promised to build on the southern border with Mexico to combat illegal immigration and drug trafficking, officials familiar with his 2020 budget request told Reuters.

The demand is more than six times what Congress allocated for border projects in each of the past two fiscal years, and 6 percent more than Trump has corralled by invoking emergency powers this year.

Democrats, who oppose the wall as unnecessary and immoral, control the U.S. House of Representatives, making it unlikely the Republican president’s request will win congressional passage.

Asked on Fox News Sunday about the new funding request and if there would be another budget fight over Trump’s wall, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said, “I suppose there will be … He’s going to stay with his wall and he’s going to stay with the border security theme. I think it’s essential.”

Trump’s wall request is based off a 2017 plan put forward by Customs and Border Protection officials to build or replace 722 miles (1,162 km) of barrier along the border, which in total is estimated to cost about $18 billion.

So far, only 111 miles (179 km) have been built or are underway, officials said. In fiscal 2017, $341 million in funding was allocated for 40 miles (64 km) of wall, and in 2018, another $1.375 billion was directed to 82 miles (132 km).

For fiscal 2019, Trump demanded $5.7 billion in wall funds, but Congress appropriated only $1.375 billion for border fencing projects.

Following the rejection of his wall funding demand, Trump declared the border was a national emergency – a move opposed by Democrats and some Republicans – and redirected $601 million in Treasury Department forfeiture funds, $2.5 billion in Defense Department drug interdiction funds and $3.6 billion from a military construction budget, for total spending of $8.1 billion for the wall.

Trump’s wall spending is being contested from the left, and the lack of wall building is being slammed from Coulter on the right.

    ”With another President, millions would be pouring in. I am stopping an invasion.”

    That he is…or at least he’s trying. And boy, are border security thankful for a president who isn’t hindering them like that hopeless wonder Obama did.

    Ann is no mug. Hardened by many run-ins with liberals and their inane rantings, she is like many Rightie female commentators, usually cogent…and RIGHT.

    Heres some of Coulters facts that werent

    “1928 was last time Republicans had the White House, the House and the Senate.”
    “The Dutch (Afrikaners) were” in South Africa “first.”
    A friend’s sister “died from Obamacare” because Blue Shield “completely just pulled out of California.””America has already taken in one-fourth of Mexico’s entire population.”
    “No doctors who went to an American medical school will be accepting Obamacare.”
    Says President Obama was wrong “about Muslims’ historical contributions to mankind, such as algebra (actually that was the ancient Babylonians), the compass (that was the Chinese), pens (the Chinese again) and medical discoveries.”
