Ann Coulter Responds to Trump’s Slam: ‘The Only National Emergency is That Our President is an Idiot’
Minutes after President Donald Trump‘s White House Rose Garden speech in which Ann Coulter was deemed to be “off the reservation” by the president, the conservative commentator fired back.
Appearing on KABC radio in Los Angeles, Coulter — who recently surrendered support for Trump over his slowness to fulfill his border wall promise, said signing the congressional bill is a mistake that would ensure no wall would be built: “not a wall, not a prototype, but some bollard fencing with the approval of local officials.” The right-wing pundit added the President had the authority to build a wall all along and didn’t need Congress to do it.
“Forget the fact that he’s digging his own grave,” Coulter said. “The only national emergency is that our president is an idiot.”
But not to dunk on Trump’s entire base, Coulter did acknowledge Trump did follow through on some of his other promises.
“In defense of Trump supporters and those who fell for his b.s., Trump has been competent on a much more complicated subject: The judiciary,” she said, referring to Trump’s appointment of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
On Thursday night, Coulter said Trump was only declaring a national emergency to pose for his voters who still believe in him. “The goal is to get Trump’s stupidest voters to say ‘HE’S FIGHTING!’ No he’s not. If he signs this bill, it’s over,” she tweeted Thursday evening.

President Trump had mentioned Coulter in his Friday speech, saying he “hardly know[s] her,” and hasn’t “spoken to her in way over a year.” Coulter told Phillips she was going to change the title on the paperback version of her book “In Trump We Trust” to “In Trump We Trusted.”
“This is the worst open borders the country has ever had under the president who ran against open borders,” she said.
