So-called "principled conservatives" are nursing Ted Cruz hangovers and entering into the deepest of existential crises as they determine whether to back Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.
Until the general election heats up, Democrats can sponge-bathe themselves in naiveté and pretend Trump won’t harp on Slick Willie rumors and overinflate the email “scandal” until we’re all indoctrinated.
And for the first time in memory, Alex Jones-caliber right-wing conspiracy theorists can say they told us so. Far-right pundits and ride-or-die Trumpsters alike are shoving their man’s unprecedented rise in our fat faces.
Because why should we have ever doubted that a man whose presidential run was conceived as a bargaining chip during a contract negotiation for his reality-TV show could mobilize so many slack-jawed patriots?
Ann Coulter is at the top of the totem pole of conservative figures rubbing our noses in the Type 6 pile of shit that is the current state of the Republican party.
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Coulter was in typical form.
“You cannot possibly relish the prospect of having to listen to Hillary Clinton’s squawk for the next four years,” Coulter told “Hollywood liberals,” urging them to, “Join the Trump Train!”
And to “never-Trumpers” Coulter said, “Move out of DC and meet some Americans. They’re nice people.”
Coulter added that grumpy Cruz supporters ought to be happy with their second choice.
“Those two had the closest positions on the issues,” she said. “Unfortunately, Cruz was born in Canada and has a nails-on-a-blackboard speaking style.”
Coulter shared similar sentiments in a Wednesday Op-Ed for the Trump-endorsing Breitbart News Network.
"For those of you not yet on the Trump Train, I know you don’t want to vote for Hillary," she argued.
Donald Trump, she added, "just won the Republican nomination for president by spending no money, hiring no pollsters, running virtually no TV ads, and just saying what he truly believed no matter how many times people told him he couldn't say that."
