Ann Coulter buries Newt Gingrich for kissing Trump’s a**


Conservative author Ann Coulter absolutely went off on former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on Monday in an epic Twitter roasting for kissing President Donald Trump’s ass.

During an appearance on Fox News, Gingrich criticized Coulter for daring to criticize the dear leader and told Trump not to listen to her because the base is supposedly with him.

“He should not pay any attention to Ann Coulter,” Gingrich said. “Ann Coulter’s never run for office. She doesn’t know anything about how you put a majority together. She’s off here in some fantasy land where she gets to be noisy, which helps her sell books. The fact is, the president’s base is with the president. If he goes to them and says, ‘I got this done for the wall, I got this done to protect America, I’m doing these good things you believe in,’ the base is going to say, ‘fine.'”

The problem is that Trump no longer has a majority in Congress seeing as how Democrats control the House. Plus, support among his base is starting to slip. The other problem with Gingrich’s rant is that Coulter is part of Trump’s base, and that base is angry that he caved in to Democrats and didn’t get his wall as he has been promising for years.

In response, Coulter swiftly fired back on Twitter by burying Gingrich for being a lapdog, reminding him that the people have the right to criticize the president, including his supporters.

This is an absolute drubbing that Gingrich would be wise to remember. For some reason, a lot of Trump supporters think Trump should not be criticized because he’s the president. Of course, that would be news to former President Obama, whom conservatives did nothing but criticize for eight years, even by Democrats at times.

Coulter makes a point here, and that’s Americans have the right to criticize the president and be angry with him. Just going along with whatever way he wants to spin his political defeat and humiliation does nothing. That being said, the president is the one who listened to Coulter instead of taking the deal that was on the table in December that would have avoided the shutdown in the first place. Trump’s the one who shut the government down and he’s the one to blame for it.

Gingrich should be criticizing Trump for listening to Coulter more than he should be criticizing her for advising him. After all, the buck stops at the president’s desk, not Coulter’s Twitter feed.
