Did Ann Coulter Help Write Trump’s Anti-Muslim Immigration Policy?

Ann Coulter (aka “The Wicked Witch of the NE”) is back in the news cycle again.

Today’s [7/10/17] issue of “New York Magazine” has some excerpts from Joshua Green’s new book, “Devil’s Bargain.” While the book is mostly about Steve Bannon’s influence over Donald Trump, there is a very interesting part about Ms Coulter.

When Trump came under fire because his campaign hadn’t produced a single policy paper, Bannon arranged for [Sam] Nunberg and Ann Coulter, the conservative pundit, to quickly write a white paper on Trump’s immigration policies. When the campaign released it, Coulter, without disclosing her role, tweeted that it was “the greatest political document since the Magna Carta.”

This isn’t the first time Trump has depended on Coulter’s racist views to rev up his rhetoric.

As Peter Reinart put it in “The Atlantic” back in June, 2016:

The secret of Trump’s success, she argues, has been ideological. He recognized that “Americans,” by which she mostly means Republicans, “are homesick.” They don’t just oppose immigration because they believe it depresses wages and strains government services. They’re homesick for a whiter America, an America that was once truly free because “it’s not in the Anglo-Saxon character either to take orders or to give them.” (Never mind about slavery.) Since 1965, however, when Lyndon Johnson signed legislation allowing more immigration from Latin America, Asia, and Africa, the United States has been, according to Coulter in In Trump We Trust, overrun by “illiterate peasants … who can be instructed to learn certain symbols and bloc-vote for the Democrats.” In response, Democrats, along with rich Republicans, keep the doors open to non-European immigration, and thus America has grown “browner” and “shorter.” (That’s Coulter’s description from Adios America). Corruption rises. So does terrorism and rape.

The only thing that surprises me out of all of this is that Trump didn’t put her in charge of Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

Stay Tuned!

Ann Coulter’s ‘In Trump We Trust’ Book Disaster

CnGb8LdUEAAkQkeThis hasn’t been the best of weeks for Ann Coulter (aka “The Wicked Witch of the NE”).

Oh, it started out just fine. She had a brand new book coming out, entitled “In Trump We Trust.” I’m sure she thought she had another hit, since there are more than enough gullible, low information types (That’s “PC” for stupid.) to send the book up the best seller lists.

The hairball himself, Donald Trump, even tweeted nice things about it.

.@AnnCoulter‘s new book, ‘In Trump We Trust, comes out tomorrow. People are saying it’s terrific – knowing Ann I am sure it is!

(Of course, he hadn’t read it, but details like that never seem to bother him.)

Then the book came out! (And, the snarks started flying.)

First, there was the title, “In Trump We Trust,” in which the orange oligarch replaces Big Daddy.

Ann Coulter’s new book is titled “In Trump We Trust?” Sounds like blasphemy to me.

Not content with mangling that slogan, which only goes back to 1956, (sorry, religious troglodytes) she also takes on “E Pluribus Unum” which goes back to the Continental Congress in 1782. The term, for those of you who slept through Latin class, means “from many, one.”

Well, since that sounds too much like it’s celebrating diversity, Ann changed it to “E Pluribus Awesome.” I’ll skip the fact that the Latin word for awesome is “terribilis.” (Which is a better fit.) What I’m wondering about is “from many what?” Lies? Scams? Lawsuits? Bankruptcies? The list goes on and on.

Ok, enough nits picked about the cover, lets look at the content. Here’s some gems (of the zircon variety):

Trump is like a Shakespearean ‘fool’: he seems crass because he speaks the truth.

We need more narcissists running for public office.

Being crude is an indispensible requirement.

And, of course, the raison d’etre of the book. (For any French class sleepers or “baggers” in the audience, “raison d’etre” means “the most important purpose.” Who says my posts aren’t educational?)

Liberals compulsively demand the importation of foreigners because of their seething hatred of the historic American nation. They won’t be happy until the DAR-eligible population is a tiny minority. Any culture that replaces American culture is an improvement, as far as they are concerned.

And, as for the infallibility of Big Daddy’s stand in:

There’s nothing Trump can do that won’t be forgiven. Except change his immigration policies.

Guess what! Hairball changed his immigration policies. (Or, somebody did and he just read the teleprompter.)

Guess what again! The WWotNE is NOT happy!

At first, in an interview for “The Hill,” she tried to spin it.

It’s just rhetoric but it’s still annoying. I think he panicked and he had to say [it] … I don’t think he is softening. I mean the big thing is the wall.

Later, as the fact sunk in that he had undermined the whole purpose of her book and cost her sales, she took to Twitter. (As twits often do.)

Only part he left out was the “hoops” they’ll have to jump through! Trump:”No citizenship. Let me go a step further—they’ll pay back-taxes”

Trump: “they have to pay taxes, there’s no amnesty” [Pro Tip: “Back taxes” means we pay illegals $30k apiece in EITC.}

It’s not “amnesty.” It’s “comprehensive immigration reform”!!!! Trump: “they have to pay taxes, there’s no amnesty.”

Well, if it’s “hard,” then nevermind. Trump: “… to take a person who’s been here for 15 or 20 years ….It’s a very, very hard thing.”

Btw, the book is available on Amazon, already marked down 40%.
