Bill Maher to Ann Coulter: So ‘What Was Your First Clue’ Trump’s a ‘Lying Con Man?’

Ann Coulter appeared with Bill Maher tonight after blasting President Donald Trump for caving on his shutdown border wall demand.

Maher brought up how much influence she has over the president’s decision-making, which Coulter downplayed a bit. She told him she’s just a member of Trump’s base expecting him to keep a campaign promise.

Regarding her “wimp” tweet today, Maher said, “You were convinced that Donald Trump was the guy, you voted for him, Donald Trump, and now you’re finding out he’s a lying con man. What was your first clue?”

Coulter said that “we’ve been lied to over and over and over again by politicians” for years about immigration before telling Maher’s audience that they’re “being played” on immigration.

They clashed on the wall and Trump’s campaign promise, with Coulter saying that Trump “never said they would pre-pay for it.”

Maher brought up Trump’s shifting rhetoric on exactly he wants on the border. Coulter joked, “By now it’s a gentle little garden trellis.”

In defending her past praise of Trump, she said, “We thought he wouldn’t care what the elites thought and he’d actually keep his promises on this.”
