In Trump We Trust.


“In Trump We Trust.” Yes, that’s really the title of Ann Coulter’s latest book, a paean to what she calls the great orange hope.  Christ. Well, if that wasn’t enough to get the facepalm going, this certainly is:

She also attempts to answer for his past mistakes, including when he mocked New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski, who has a musculoskeletal disorder.

Coulter, in a chapter entitled “Disabled Reporter Joins Media Effort to Create More Disabled Americans,” writes that Trump wasn’t making fun of Kovaleski’s disorder; he was just doing an impression of a “standard retard”:

Trump denied knowing that Serge was disabled, and demanded an apology, saying that anyone could see his imitation was of a flustered, frightened reporter, not a disabled person. It’s true that Trump was not mimicking any mannerisms that Serge has. He doesn’t jerk around or flail his arms. He’s not retarded. He sits calmly, but if you look at his wrists, you’ll see they are curved in. That’s not the imitation Trump was doing—he was doing a standard retard, waving his arms and sounding stupid: “’Ahhh, I don’t know what I said—ahhh, I don’t remember!’ He’s going, ‘Ahhh, I don’t remember, maybe that’s what I said!’”

Right. Well, that clarification makes it…much, much worse. There’s an old saying that’s apt here: with friends like these, you don’t need enemies.

    Just wow. Does she really think she’s helping, or is this spectacular own goal just an opportunity to give the finger to “pc” people twice? SMDH.

    I’d like to link to it, but I hate giant video players in comments. Anyway, reportedly in Coulter’s book she insisted the only thing that Trump could do to demolish himself in her eyes was to waffle on his immigration policy. What does Trump do on the day Coulter launches this drek? Waffle on his immigration policy.

    The Encyclopedia of American Loons suggests “her role among conservatives could be viewed as part of a systematic strategy to move the Overton window.” That is, she’s so far to the wacko-end — she’s even been corrected by nutters such as Bill O’Realitychallanged — most anything in the other direction seems sane… even if it’s not (like Bill O’Realitychallanged’s batshitery).

    There are loads of wacky claims / quotes listed, including but by no means limited to:

    ● The myth of ‘McCarthyism’ is the greatest Orwellian fraud of our times […] Liberals are fanatical liars, then as now. Everything you think you know about McCarthy is a hegemonic lie.

    ● Books that become publishing scandals by virtue of phony research, invented facts, or apocryphal stories invariably grind political axes for the left{…} but it’s hard to think of a single hoax book written by a conservative

    ● “[S]he claims that liberals constitute a demonic mob and that she is a victim, and advocates shooting everyone who disagrees with her. Also, liberals are anti-science.”

    ● “Among Coulter’s celebrated opinions are the idea that the US should invade Canada, that the Occupy Wall Street protesters should be shot”.

    ● [Democrats] always accusing us of repressing their speech. I say let’s do it. Let’s repress them. Frankly, I’m not a big fan of the First Amendment.

    And on and on and on. There are apparently entire sites dedicated to laughting-at / snarking the nonsense she spouts.

    “a demonic mob”

    I want to know where are my devilish horns? To be a part of demonic mob without horns, it’s an outrage!
