Sarah Sanders: ‘I Don’t Think Ann Coulter Has Any Influence Over This White House’ or Much of Anything

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders dismissed the idea today that Ann Coulter has any level of influence in the White House.

By now, you’ve probably heard that Coulter is incensed at President Donald Trump for signing the compromise border security bill and declaring a national emergency:

Fox News’ Dana Perino spoke with Sanders today and asked about the level of conservative commentators’ influence on Trump, including Coulter. She read out that last tweet above and asked if the media “over-exaggerates the influence that somebody like Ann Coulter has on the White House.”

Sanders laughed a bit and responded, “I don’t think Ann Coulter has any influence over this White House, or influence over much of anything, to be honest. I don’t think she did before the president became the president. I don’t think she does now. I just don’t see her as being an influential voice in this country, and certainly not one in this building.”

You can watch above, via Fox News.
