Former Trump devotee Ann Coulter hit back at former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on Monday after he advised President Donald Trump to stop listening to her advice.

Coulter, who has ruthlessly slammed the president for his failure to secure funding for his proposed border wall, unleashed a vicious Twitter tirade against Gingrich for making excuses for the president’s fumbling of his signature campaign issue.

“Newt Gingrich claims I’m in ‘fantasyland’ for criticizing the president for breaking his central campaign promise,” Coulter wrote. “It has now come to my attention that Trump HAS built the full border wall and it’s working BEAUTIFULLY. That is why Trump is sailing to re-election!”

Coulter then accused Gingrich of totally ignoring reality in his quest to shamelessly suck up to the president.

“Newt’s right — I’m just selling books,” Coulter wrote. “But at least I don’t have to kiss Trump’s ass to do so. RIDDLE OF THE DAY: How do you break Newt Gingrich’s nose? (ANSWER: Kick Donald Trump in the ass.)”

Coulter concluded her tirade by arguing that Gingrich’s excuse-making was illustrative of a key divide that had opened up among Trump voters.

“Trump voters have fallen into 2 factions: The Tell the Truth faction and the Kiss the Emperor’s Ass camp,” she wrote. “Newt and I have picked different camps.”
