Ann Coulter was a Trump believer from the beginning. As far back at June 2015 she predicted a Trump victory on the Bill Maher show and was openly mocked by the audience and other panelists. But, turns out she was quite right.
Coulter even went on to publish a book entitled “In Trump We Trust” which she hailed as the story of a “one-man wrecking ball against our dysfunctional and corrupt establishment.”
But, after a series of flip-flops on everything from the timing of the border wall to the ‘obsolescence’ of NATO, Coulter is growing a little weary of waiting on Trump to deliver on campaign promises.
Sitting down for an interview with the Daily Caller, Coulter said she’s “not very happy with what has happened so far” and asked “is the great negotiator?”
Uhhhh. I’m not very happy with what has happened so far. I guess we have to try to push him to keep his promises. But this isn’t North Korea, and if he doesn’t keep his promises I’m out. This is why we voted for him. I think everyone who voted for him knew his personality was grotesque, it was the issues.
I hate to say it, but I agree with every line in my friend Frank Bruni’s op-ed in The New York Times today. Where is the great negotiation? Where is the bull in the china shop we wanted? That budget the Republicans pushed through was like a practical joke… Did we win anything? And this is the great negotiator?
We had no choice. Yeah, I mean my fingers are still crossed, it’s not like I’m out yet, but boy things don’t look good. I’ve said to other people, “It’s as if we’re in Chicago and Trump tells us he’s going to get us to LA in six days. But for the first three days we are driving towards New York. Yes it is true he can still turn around and get us to LA in three days, but I’m a little nervous.
Asked why she thought Trump was failing, Coulter blamed a lack of “professional” political experience and a Washington establishment intent upon bringing down his administration.
“…just put it down to him not being a professional politician and having to come into the presidency with no support network, with all of official Washington against him.
I do of course blame Congress most of all. They are swine. They only care about their own careers. Who knows how much of it is corruption and how much of it is pure stupidity. People should start sending Paul Ryan bricks to indicate how much we want the wall.
They are the opposition party to Donald Trump. This is really something we’ve never seen before. The president stands alone, it’s his own political party, he’s Gary Cooper. All we have is millions of Americans behind him, but he doesn’t have anybody in Washington behind him.
Meanwhile, Coulter also took a shot at Trump’s new National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster for coming off as a caricature of a “stupid Republican” with his pronunciation of “Murica”…
It’s just that it has been such a disaster so far, and that General Kelly is so preposterous, and McMaster — did you see him at that press conference? I thought he was retarded. You have to link to that video.
I’ve never actually heard anyone other than liberals mocking their idea of a stupid Republican say, “Murica.”
…something we also noted last week…
“But his pronunciation of “Muricah” stole the spotlight…”
HR McMaster…… “Murica” kind of guy. Lol pic.twitter.com/lN1R8hywUT

And while Coulter said she’s still holding out ‘hope’ for the Trump presidency, a dangerous thing when it comes to Washington D.C. and politicians, she concluded by saying, “I think all of the Trump true believers are petrified.”
