In Topics:   Immigration Stupidity  Trump  Pundits
(Still Peak Stupidity's favorite literary pundit.)
I had no idea until I read something a month or two back about the access a pundit like Ann Coulter could have to President Trump. The history of Donald Trump's rise to the presidency is a story of the importance of the existential issue of America's nearly 6-decade-running immigration invasion. This part I still am not sure about, but it is said that Mr. Trump read Miss Coulter's '15 book ¡Adios, America!.* I'm sure Donald Trump would had his own thoughts and anger about this issue before that book, as he does have his heart in the right place, but Miss Coulter's book could have really got him going about the issue.
During those whole four years of the Trump administration, I thought it would be enough of a nice thing if he even kept up with Ann Coulter's columns. I remember her high hopes for the guy, same as the rest of us had, on this issue and others, such as ending the American Warfare State**. I also recall these hopes being summarily dashed, and she gave him quite a bit of time and credit, more than I did. (The VDare folks are ALWAYS optimistic, but they did know a lot more under-the-radar details.) At some point, she'd had just about enough of his major failures on this issue, as I also remember, including some certain tweet VDare put up.
Here's what I had NO EARTHLY IDEA of: From a 4 year old Real Clear Politics article, I found out that Ann Coulter conversed with President Trump in person, at the White House! It could have been more times than the one, also. Sorry, I'm no Washington wonk, so maybe that sounds naive of me. Now that I read/hear about this, it just makes me see this as such a bigger lost opportunity to have saved the nation.
It was something about a "shouting match" between the President and Pundit that made me wonder, "what, in person? When?" The article I read, Coulter On "Obscenity-Laced" Oval Office Shouting Match With Trump: "Total Betrayal" On The Wall gave me the affirmative answer. There's a video in the article (at the bottom of this post too) that shows Miss Coulter talking with Howie Carr, commenter Ganderson's favorite radio(?) guy. I will use short parts of the Real Clear Politics article, with their transcription excerpts:
Coulter also talked about a very heated conversation she had with President Trump in the Oval Office that devolved into an obscenity-filled argument over his lack of action on NAFTA, deportations, and other agenda items.Man, I wish I could have been a fly on the wall for that one! A fly with an iPhone, of course ... working as a stringer for Peak Stupidity.
"It came out about 6 weeks after it happened," she said of the event.
"And he swore first!" Coulter wanted to make clear.
"Are these reports true or are they fake news that you got in an obscenity-laced screaming match with him?" Carr asked.
"I said you're not doing what you promised to do," she said of the meeting.
"Where's the end of NAFTA? Where's the wall? Where are the deportations? What are you doing talking about the DREAMers?" are some of the questions Coulter said she asked.
And I said that doesn't count. Jeb, exclamation point, would have done that. Rubio would have done that. How is your presidency different than from Rubio would have done?Howie Carr asked her when President Trump started swearing. That was after Ann Coulter compared him to ¡Jeb! Bush. Note that Miss Coulter swore that Trump swore first. Yeah, but is "¡Jeb!" or "Bush" not a swear word? Tough call, Ann. That's one for the courts.
The fact that Ann Coulter with her great knowledge of the immigration problem, was actually conversing with President Trump on the issue has me even more sorry for the lost opportunity of his Presidency. There is no doubt that this favorite pundit of ours reads one of our favorite websites, VDare (she wrote as much very recently regarding their lawsuits), and VDare is THE ORGANIZATION, with THE EXPERTISE on the issue above any other.
If we could have just had a President who strategized with the great knowledge of the problem from REAL experts, instead of a bullshitter with his heart in the right place who relied on Javanka, it all could have gone much differently. I'm positive we wouldn't now have the Human Trafficker-in-Chief in office, doing evil destruction of America.*** (Subtitle of Ann Coulter's book that I and maybe Donald Trump read: The Left's Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole. Yep.)
Finally, Ann Coulter ¡REALLY ! ¡LIKES! the upside-down exclamation points¡ I'm down with that, as ridiculing these people can't hurt our cause¡
Here's the audio of Ann and Howie Carr on youtube. It's under 15 minutes, and Ann Coulter is always worth the time!
* I read the book shortly after it came out. It was well written and enjoyable, but for me, just "preaching to the choir".
** Yes, Miss Coulter had really come across lately as a great Libertarian, and her latest column, Republicans Need To Stop Talking About UKRAINE's Borders, Start Defending America's!, shows that she could be a younger, pretty, fraternal twin of Ron Paul. (OK, no that doesn't work!)
*** It'll be another post, but VDare had something today that is just amazingly, sickeningly evil.
