Oh, how I am hoping that a conservative wiseacre is correct, that Donald J. Trump’s moment as a Republican political leader is over, that media outlets need to stop “obsessing” over him.
So says Ann Coulter, a one-time Trump loyalist turned harsh critic.
Don’t misunderstand me here. I am not an Ann Coulter fan. I dislike her politics and the harsh language she has used at times to pillory political figures I admire.
Moreover, I do not place much stock in what Coulter might know about the base of Trumpkins who continue to hang on the former POTUS’s every word. For all I know, Coulter is just popping off because, well … she can.
Coulter tweeted something out regarding Trump’s relationship with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis: “EXCLUSIVE: Trump is demanding to know Ron DeSantis’s booster status, and I can now reveal it,” Coulter wrote. “He was a loyal booster when Trump ran in 2016, but then he learned our president was a liar and con man whose grift was permanent. I hope that clears things up.”
Actually, it doesn’t clear anything up.
Coulter is going to enrage the Trump-cult base of nut jobs.
But you know what? She does have a point about whether the media should stop obsessing over Trump. The media are playing into Trump’s hands by continually observing on this and that statement that flies out of Trump’s pie hole.
Were they to remain silent, then perhaps he will fade away, or slither back under the rock from where he emerged in 2016 to run for POTUS.
