Ann Coulter The Donald’s Head Trumpet

This blonde banshee is queen of the negative tribal offset. Such an offset being that part of our human nature that fears and hates the “other,” an ugly impulse of character that requires a certain degree of intellect to rise above.

Thus it is an easy impulse to stroke among the nation’s rubes and highly profitable when it comes to her book sales. Basically it is the path that Trump has taken to march through the Republican field. Luckily for Coulter, the more Trump pounds illegal Mexicans, Moslems and other “others,” the more he fuels her profits.

She therefore, of course, keeps egging Trump on when it comes to the off script nasty stuff he slobbers out to his fanatical backers to the dismay of Kellyanne Conway, his latest campaign manager, and the Republican establishment.

While Coulter loves stirring up resentment of White folks no less than Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and the rest of the right-wing maggot brigade, she actually enjoys hanging out with the liberals she loves to belittle. And since she comes off as one very happy go lucky warrior, they seem to relish sparing with her, especially Bill Maher.

But right now Ms. Coulter’s super passion is keeping Trump’s nose down in the gutter, which is also a very easy undertaking. And as Trump is quite fond of her cheerleading rhetoric, I would not be shocked if he tried to made her his press secretary, if worse comes to worse and he ends up “our” president, although I would be shocked if she accepted since it might hamper her “writing career,” but then again maybe not.

In any event, as head Trumpet she will continue to try and make moneymaking music with the Donald as long as his act holds up.
