Ann Coulter whines that Trump ‘unfollowed me on Twitter’ as she demands he ‘break ground today’ on border wall

Published

on

Far-right gadfly Ann Coulter complained about President Donald Trump unfollowing her on Twitter as she issued her latest demands in a long-winded rant posted on her website on Wednesday.

On December 19, Coulter posted a column slamming Trump as “gutless” for not having built his border wall. Trump unfollowed Coulter on Twitter, but essentially caved to her demands and pulled out of a deal to keep the government open.

Thirty-three days into Trump’s shutdown, Coulter posted a new column also slamming Trump.

“We are now past the midway point of Trump’s first term, maybe his only term,” she noted. “If Trump couldn’t come up with a legislative fix when he controlled both houses of Congress, he’s sure not going to now that he’s lost the House. ”

“We are headed for another failed Republican presidency,” she predicted.

“By now, my erstwhile critics are getting the point. But I’m not sure the president is — a few weeks ago, he unfollowed me on Twitter,” Coulter wrote. “Trump seems to be mystified about what he needs to do to maintain the support of his most devoted backers.”

Coulter went even further, saying Trump was already losing his base as his shutdown drags on with neither Mexico nor Congress funding a concrete fence or steel slat fence.

“Here’s what you haven’t done, Mr. President: You haven’t broken ground. You want your supporters back? BREAK GROUND TODAY,” she argued.

The column included the phrase “break ground today” — in all caps — a dozen times.

“What you need to do today — not after the State of the Union address, not after the next GOP retreat, not after another meeting with the Democrats — is to start rolling construction trucks to the southern border,” Coulter ordered. “Emergency powers or no emergency powers, on tomorrow night’s news we want to see helicopters circling the trucks headed to the border.”

Marco Rubio brutally shamed by hometown newspaper for ‘pathetic’ response to Trump’s racism

Published

on

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is getting raked over the coals by his hometown newspaper.

In a scathing editorial published this week, the Miami Herald called out Rubio for his "pathetic" response to Trump's racist attacks on four Democratic lawmakers.

The editorial argues that Rubio had once promised to be a check on Trump's worst excesses -- but he's instead been a consistent "sycophant" who has regularly debased himself to gain Trump's approval.

"He has transformed from Trump critic to a sycophantic cheerleader -- derided by former adviser and Washington Post columnist Max Boot as a 'Trump fan-boy' -- to the point that he’s willing to kill Obamacare even though his own state leads the nation in enrollment," the editorial argues.

Don’t expect Mueller to deliver any surprises: ‘He doesn’t spin, he doesn’t speculate and he doesn’t hypothesize’

Robert Mueller testifies before Congress

Democrats shouldn't expect Robert Mueller to go much further beyond the somewhat dispassionate public statements he's already made about his investigation into President Donald Trump's campaign ties to Russia.

The former special counsel will testify Wednesday before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees, and the longtime lawman will likely show up highly prepared but also remain aloof from partisan passions, reported Politico.

“Even for relatively simple presentations, Mueller would prepare relentlessly,” said Chuck Rosenberg, a Department of Justice veteran who has known the former FBI director for two decades.

Trump is ‘eviscerating the government’ even worse than George W. Bush: White House veteran

Published

on

Richard A. Clarke, a prominent counterterrorism expert who has served under almost every president since Reagan, has long been convinced that the worse president in his lifetime was George W. Bush — even through much of the early period of President Donald Trump's administration.

But on Monday, The Daily Beast published new comments from Clarke suggesting that he is growing less sure of this assessment.

"He's eviscerating the government.  He’s eviscerating capabilities that we need," Clarke told the Beast. "And it's not as though if the Democrats win the 2020 election you just turn those capabilities back on. The people go away, the skill sets go away, the capabilities atrophy. And it will take years to undo the damage."
