Here we are not even four months into Trumptopia and things are already so bad and so disappointing on so many levels that even Ann Coulter is noticing…and admitting that she’s noticing.
“Conservative author Ann Coulter was one of the most vocal supporters of Donald Trump during the presidential campaign.
She wrote “In Trump We Trust” and proclaimed that she worships him like the “people of North Korea worship their Dear Leader – blind loyalty.”
Coulter described herself as a single-issue voter during the election and was drawn to Trump due to his “Mexican rapist speech” and him calling for a border wall to be built.
In an interview Sunday with The Daily Caller, Coulter let it be known she still has hope in the Trump presidency, but is ready to jump ship.”
So the woman who wrote In Trump We Trust is ready to jump ship.
Four months after Trump was sworn in to office.
Less than four months after Trump was sworn into office.
The article continued (with questions/statements to Coulter in bold print and her responses in standard type):
“So there’s no wall, and Obama’s amnesties look like they are here to stay. Do you still trust Trump?
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?
You said during the election and in columns that if there is no wall it’s the end of America.
Trump was our last shot. I kind of thought it was Romney, and then lo and behold like a miracle Trump comes along. I still believe in Trumpism. I have no regrets for ferociously supporting him. What choice did we have?
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.
What’s behind him driving towards New York?
If he grabs the steering wheel and turns around and takes us toward LA, then I’ll 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 have from the beginning been opposed to Trump hiring any of his relatives. Americans don’t like that, I don’t like that. That’s the one fascist thing he’s done. Hiring his kids.
But I understand if you’re in Washington you don’t know who to trust, the party was against you, the politicians were against you, the bureaucracy was against you, and by the way this isn’t to say anything bad about Jared. Everything I know about him, I think he’s doing a great job. But even if he is absolutely the best person for the job, I don’t like the hiring of relatives.
I could understand all that if he gets control of the steering wheel and turns around and starts going towards LA.
If we just keep going to New York. Well again, I’ll say we had no choice, but the Trump-haters were right…It’s a nightmare. I can’t even contemplate that. Right now I’m still rooting for him to turn around and take us toward LA.
Are you going to be apologizing to these Never Trumpers?
I don’t apologize for supporting Trump. He said all the right things and nobody else would even say it. I suppose it’s possible that another politician who really meant it would come along. There’s Kris Kobach, Tom Cotton, Jeff Sessions…there are probably a handful of politicians.
I got to tell you when I wrote “Adios America” I thought there was a 10 percent chance of saving the country. On the evening of November 8, I thought, “Wow we have a 90 percent chance now, this is a chance that comes a long once every thousand years, we can save America now.”
And now, I don’t know, I’m someplace between 10 percent and 90 percent.”
“Someplace between 10 percent and 90 percent.”
This is what pagan “conservatism” looks like, folks.
This is where it leads.
Now, having (hopefully) noted the sheer nuttiness of this situation, let’s pay special attention to a key concept/rationalization repeated often by Trumptopians like Ann: We had no choice but to elect Trump.
Because we must fear!
We must fear the Democrats.
We must fear the Clintons.
We must fear losing the White House (again).
We must fear losing America.
We must fear the Supreme Court.
When it comes to politics, we must fear everything and everyone but…the Lord.
(For more on this important concept, please read The Fear-Fueled Politics of American Statism, Fear is worship…so stop fearing anything or anyone but God., and Want to actually save America? Stop fearing Hillary and start fearing the Lord. You can also listen to a podcast on this subject by checking out How fear-fueled politics compels cowardly American Christians to choose wicked leadership. – Fire Breathing Christian Podcast.)
This is why we have Trump.
This is why we had Obama, Bush, Clinton, and Bush before him.
And this is why we will have whatever worse thing comes after Trump.
Our fear of the world and abandonment of Christ as the authority upon Whom we build our legal, political, economic, and civil governmental approaches is what is killing us.
Looking to Donald Trump, Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh or FOX News to “make America great” is like looking to a crack dealer for the keys to sobriety.
