I have no words for this. I am completely and utterly flabbergasted and I just don’t know what has gotten into Ann Coulter over the last couple of weeks.
Coulter has always been inflammatory and she’s always had a tendency to be a bit to the left of the rest of us conservatives. She used to be infatuated with Mitt Romney and Chris Christie – hoping that both men would one day be President. She’s also taken up the banner of Donald Trump and is preaching her support of his candidacy to anyone who will listen – while pretending his liberal ideas don’t really exist. She even recently said something that disgusted thousands of her former fans…

Now she’s openly attacking other conservatives who take Trump to task for his boorish behavior.
Carly Fiorina hasn’t said much about Donald Trump (or any other GOP Presidential candidate) over the last few months; she’s focused her fire and energy on attacking Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democrat candidate. However, since the GOP debate she’s hit him several times – first for his attack on Megyn Kelly and more recently because of his unwillingness to give his loyalty to the GOP. Coulter, who doesn’t seem to mind when Trump verbally assaults other GOP candidates, apparently doesn’t like it when other candidates criticize her man. On Tuesday Coulter went on the Mike Gallagher radio show and blasted Fiorina saying that she has “turned against her… with the hot, hot hate of a thousand suns.”
I find this development incredibly sad. Carly Fiorina is a wonderful candidate and those of us who have become fans of hers haven’t done so because she’s a woman – we’ve become Carly fans because she’s proven to be a formidable candidate. Carly is also more conservative than Trump on a whole host of issues – she also agrees with Trump on his keystone plank, illegal immigration. While she may not be as vocal or brash as Trump on the issue, she is against amnesty and believes that the first priority must be securing our border and deporting those here illegally.
Coulter should be joining forces with Carly to attack our opponents, not using her powerful voice to criticize and demean her. Again, this is an incredibly sad turn of events and it will ultimately hurt our conservative cause more than it will help Donald Trump’s candidacy.
I wish Coulter would change her mind and take back the things she said on Tuesday.
On Carly Fiorina:
I have turned against her as of yesterday with the hot, hot hate of a thousand suns.
First, I admit I was suspicious, because I hate this, “ohh a woman can talk, isn’t that great.” Why not Sid Dinsdale, he ran for Senate in Nebraska, he is a wealthy banker, he’s worth a few billion dollars.
He ran for senate and lost; she ran for governor and lost.
But I just hate this affirmative action among Republicans. Look Republicans, you’re very sweet people, I love that you’re trying to promote someone because, “whoa, it’s a woman,” but women can talk, it’s really not breaking news, and then yesterday among the attacks I saw on the magnificent Donald Trump immigration plan was, you know, everybody wants to get rid of anchor babies.
