Rather than an outrageous attack this sounds more like a pathetic whine for attention to me.

Quote

The Daily Beast has got a copy of Coulter’s latest book in which she relishes how angry the president makes his liberal critics — even as she admits his actions often make her feel sick as well.

“Trump may be shallow, narcissistic, disloyal, and the crudest kind of braggart, but he’s like chemotherapy for the country: it’s unpleasant to go through, you vomit, your hair falls out—but it kills cancer cells, and you live… [and] everyone on The New York Times’ editorial board will die,” Coulter writes.


Still I think she sums up the right-wing pretty well. They are aggrieved. They're not sure why but they've figured out who to blame (no, it's NEVER themselves) and they'll spread their butt cheeks wide and let anybody treat them like a 10-year old altar boy in Pittsburgh as long as they make "liberals" angry. Remember that these are the same people that so many advised us we have to understand and attempt to communicate with. As if.

Sessions

"That's the problem with being implacable foes - no one has any incentive to treat you as anything more than an obstacle to be overcome."

Don't hold back, tell it straight. You don't like them do you?
A doctor knows a little about a lot. A specialist knows a lot about a little. In time the doctor knows less and less about more and more and the specialist knows more and more about less and less until ultimately the doctor knows nothing about everything and the specialist knows everything about nothing.

And so will Coulter. Can't come soon enough.

She read the tea leaves wrong when she turned on Trump and now she's whining that she can't attention.

Quote

During a speech at a Palm Beach luncheon, conservative gadfly Ann Coulter complained that she is having trouble finding people to listen to her since she has become a high profile critic of President Donald Trump.

According to a report in the Palm Beam Beach Post, Coulter — who has been frustrated by Trump’s inability to stop immigrants coming into the country a pace that suits her — called the president a “shallow, narcissistic con man” during her rant.

Of more concern to Coulter, who depends on reporting about her comments to remain on the public eye, she now finds herself in a spot where she can’t find people willing to engage with her.

“It’s frustrating,” Coulter told the Forum Club of the Palm Beaches luncheon crowd. “I can’t talk to Trump detractors because, as the subtitle to my last book indicated, they’re insane. I can’t talk to the Trump flatterers because they think as soon as it comes out of his mouth, it has happened. No, he’s an excellent talker. It’s just when it comes to doing anything that he falls down on the job.”

Coulter also used her comments on Trump’s narcissism to then blame the media, saying, “That doesn’t mean the media are not the enemy of the people. Both things can be true,” adding that she hoped Trump’s presidency would lead to the “total destruction of the lying media.”

Uhhhhh.... not big on introspection, is she?
Well, fuck.

How can I be expected to distinguish BS from reality when so much of my reality is utter BS?!
