The liberal TV host of TBS’ “Full Frontal,” Samantha Bee, discussed Ann Coulter’s recent blog posts about President Donald Trump’s apparent failures to “win,” and also metaphorically patted Coulter’s back for her decision to change her attitude towards the president.
Talking to reporters at the Turner Upfront presentation on Wednesday, Bee said, regarding Coulter’s recent series of articles and interviews eviscerating President Trump, “She’s been wrong about a lot of things, I think it’s nice to have a little self-awareness every once in a while.”
“Good for her!” Bee added.
One of Trump’s biggest and most vocal supporters during the 2016 presidential election, Coulter has been changing her tune regarding the president and his actions.
In a blog earlier this month, Coulter claimed the president was “comically improbable” and condemned his inability to “win.”
Slamming him for over-promising and under-delivering, Coulter humiliated the president for seemingly backing off of several campaign promises, most notably the US-Mexico border wall.
“Not only is there no funding for a wall,” she wrote, “but — thanks to the deft negotiating skills of House Speaker Paul Ryan — the bill actually prohibits money from being spent on a wall.”
“The deal was that we were getting the Hollywood version of a New York businessman,” Coulter wrote. “An uncouth, incurious rube — who would be ruthless in getting whatever he wanted.”
“We want the ruthless businessman we were promised,” Coulter demanded.
During an interview with The Daily Caller on Monday, Coulter took aim at the president again, saying that she was ready to jump ship on Donald Trump.
Talking about President Trump’s first 100 days in office, she said, “I’m not very happy with what has happened so far. I guess we have to try to push him to keep his promises. But this isn’t North Korea, and if he doesn’t keep his promises I’m out. This is why we voted for him. I think everyone who voted for him knew his personality was grotesque, it was the issues.”
“I think all of the Trump true believers are petrified,” Coulter concluded.
