‘Does he think his supporters are dumb?’ Ann Coulter lashes out at Trump for lying about having built the wall

Published

Estranged Trump supporter Ann Coulter on Tuesday lashed out at President Donald Trump for blatantly lying about having built large sections of his proposed border wall.

On Twitter, Coulter posted a link to a fact-check article from the Washington Post that took the president to task for falsely claiming that much of the wall had already been built.

“The White House failed miserably to achieve its objectives on funding for a border wall, receiving relative peanuts,” the Post wrote of the president’s boasts about the wall earlier this year. “It sought $25 billion but ended up with 5 percent of that. Moreover, the money came with strings attached so that it could be used only for fencing, not the ‘great’ and ‘beautiful wall’ promised by Trump.”

Coulter shared the Post’s assessment and accused Trump of trying to trick his supporters into believing the wall had actually been built.

“Even a Washington Post reporter knows that not one inch of Trump’s wall has been built,” she wrote. “Does Trump think his supporters are dumber than a WaPo reporter?”

Coulter may have been set off by a Tuesday morning Trump tweet in which he falsely claimed that “people do not yet realize how much of the Wall, including really effective renovation, has already been built.”

The president also insisted during his combative meeting with Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer that much progress had already been made in constructing the wall.

Appearing on MSNBC's "AM Joy," Voto Latino CEO María Teresa Kumar said Democrats should not count on taking Florida's 29 electoral votes in the upcoming 2020 presidential election if Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is the at the top of the ticket.

During a fairly contentious panel discussion on the viability of Sanders as a candidate due to self-identifying as a democratic socialist, Kumar claimed that would not play well Florida's Latino community.

"All I can think about when David [Corn] was unpacking it for us, we can all agree is you can kiss Florida goodbye," she explained. "I say that, Floridians -- Latinos that have fled socialism, they have fled and they are in Florida and they have sensibilities that are different from the rest of the Latino community."

During a panel discussion on CNN's State of the Union, contributor Bakari Sellers set fellow panelist Rick Santorum straight after he tried to claim that Donald Trump doesn't take far-right positions.

Following a discussion on Sen. Bernie Sanders' Nevada caucus win, Santorum tried to note the major differences between Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Responding to conservative commentator Linda Chavez who called both Sanders and Trump "two angry people," Santorum remarked, "I wanted to take issue with what Linda said: two angry folks representing the extremes, and I would agree with that, with Bernie Sanders, and he is representing, no question, the extreme of the Democratic Party and he says that he is a socialist and he is angry, I agree."

The report states, "A slide used in an Advanced Placement history class at Loch Raven High School in Towson shows a picture of Trump above pictures of a Nazi swastika and a flag of the Soviet Union. Two captions read 'wants to round up a group of people and build a giant wall' and 'oh, THAT is why it sounds so familiar!'"
