Ann Coulter Blasts Trump After Bannon Firing, Saying the ‘Emperor God’s Tiny Ego’ Is Getting in the Way of His Agenda
Daniel Roth, Daily Mail, August 20, 2017
Conservative commentator Ann Coulter ripped into President Donald Trump over the weekend, saying he has failed to deliver on his campaign promises just days after Steve Bannon’s ouster from the White House.
‘I’m ticked off at the Emperor God,’ Coulter said sarcastically to the The Daily Beast in an interview published Friday.
The ‘In Trump We Trust’ author said she’s increasingly frustrated with a growing number of unfulfilled campaign pledges Trump has yet to tackle, namely the anti-immigration, anti-Wall Street and anti-globalist agenda he promised to institute if elected President.
‘If Trump wants to prove that he didn’t get the good ideas from Bannon, then it better be pedal-to-the-metal on deportations, the Wall, that tax hike on people who make more than $5 million a year, which I understand was Bannon’s idea but perhaps I was wrong,’ Coulter said.
Bannon was sacked as Trump’s chief political strategist on Friday following months of turmoil and infighting in the White House.
Coulter repeatedly attacked Trump for betraying his constituency, indulging in his own narcissism and failing to upend an entrenched elitist system that favors politicians and bankers, at one point proclaiming ‘Goldman Sachs is running the country!’
‘The millions of people who haven’t voted for 30 years and came out to vote for Trump, thinking “finally, here’s somebody who cares about us” — Nope!’ Coulter declared.
She not only went on the offensive against her former hero, but also aimed her ire at a number of Presidential aides such as Kellyanne Conway and Stephen Miller.
‘As late as the summer [of 2016], Kellyanne was saying that Trump built his business on the backs of the little guy,’ Coulter said, and pointed out that the White House counselor was working for Texas Senator Ted Cruz for most of the presidential campaign.
As for Miller, the former aide to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and architect of the so called ‘Muslim ban’, Coulter trivialized his role in the administration saying ‘he’s just a speechwriter for the White House staff.’
But Coulter saved her best barbs for the President when it came to Bannon, saying that Trump’s ‘tiny ego’ was incapable of sharing the spotlight with another the former White House political strategist.
‘(Every) time he’s asked about Bannon, the Emperor God goes, “He didn’t win it for me! He only came in August! I already wrapped up the nomination!,”‘ Coulter mocked.
‘You don’t have to be a very sensitive person capable of reading body language to understand that Trump is obsessed by that. It’s driven him crazy.’
With Bannon ‘his little tiny ego explodes,’ Coulter continued. ‘All you have to do with whatever White House staffer the media would like to get fired — just put him on the cover of a magazine and call him “President Whatever the Guy’s Last Name Is.”
‘It’s not good to show the media that you are so easily manipulable . . . The media is running the staffing at the White House now.’
A request for comment in an email and phone call to the White House were not immediately returned.
