Ann Coulter rips Trump over no new border wall, but whose fault is it? Hint: NOT his

By Jon Dougherty

(TNS) No conservative pundit was more eager to jump on Team Trump’s bandwagon early on than Ann Coulter. And no conservative pundit has turned on the president so dramatically than…Ann Coulter. Except maybe Matt Drudge.



The firebrand ripped into President Trump over the weekend, commented on a story from the Washington Times she tweeted which claimed that no new miles of border wall have been built during his term.

The Times noted:

The administration still has yet to fence in any new miles of border with President Trump’s wall, a top Homeland Security official acknowledged Thursday — though he said that’s not the right way to look at the problem.



Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan told reporters that 78 miles of wall has been erected under Mr. Trump, but all of it has replaced outdated fencing or barriers that had previously existed. 

The report added: “He said ground has finally been broken in Texas on a section of land where no barrier exists right now, which will be brand new wall that protects a currently unfenced area.”

Coulter tweeted this salt:

Well, okay, it’s disappointing that no new additional border wall has been built during the Trump presidency. But the barriers that are going up are a dramatic improvement over what currently exists.

And trust me — as someone who’s actually been to sections of the U.S.-Mexico border when I was researching my 2003 book, “Illegals,” putting up 30-foot barriers is a lot better protection than scraggly, rusty barbed wire that is no more than a couple feet high in most places.

But let’s take Coulter’s criticism at face value. The author of the book “Adios, America” has argued that without curbing illegal immigration and mass legal immigration, American culture is on a doomsday mission.

Got it. No disagreement from me. Cultural assimilation is vital if we are to preserve our American heritage (like most other cultures seek to do, by the way).

But how much of this lack of new border wall is President Trump’s fault? The answer, of course, is none.

He has been thwarted — by Congress and by federal courts — for three years in his effort to secure funding for new sections of border wall. Even Republicans, when they held the congressional majority, would not fund his border wall because they were beholden to the Koch Brothers’ cheap labor lobby.

And as if to put an exclamation point on that, here comes House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of the Garbage Party, in an interview Sunday proclaiming that she won’t allow any border wall funding as long as she remains in control of the House…where all spending bills must originate, per the Constitution.

So, my question to the esteemed Ann Coulter is: What’s the president supposed to do — become Obama and just executive order his way around Congress?

Oh, wait…he tried that, too. He declared a national emergency. And even that declaration, which was well within the president’s authority, was challenged. It took the Supreme Court to finally ‘settle’ the matter.

Some actual new border wall is scheduled now to be built. Any rational person should have expected a) that the president was going to be opposed every step of the way on this and he has been; and b) 30-foot sections of border wall don’t just magically appear. There has to be advance planning and there’s lots of red tape to cut through before any federal projects can begin.

Coulter wants to see a real border wall along the entirety of the U.S.-Mexico border, or at least as much of it as can reasonably and practically be built. So do we.

But I’ll be damned if I’m going to blame President Trump for the delays. That makes no sense.

He’s the last one who should be blamed.

It is apparent that Coulter has become menopausal and she’s blaming her misery on Trump. What a douche-bag. I used to like her.

Wasn’t Mexico paying for the wall? How much money is(and has) gone into the “Great Wall” of Jordon?

She is good at complaining. Reminds me of Pelosi.
Trump should’ve told Congress he didn’t want a wall (and then let them pretend to push it). But I forgive Trump.
He’s human and those witches are not.

After watching Trump for the last 3 and a half years, it should be painfully obvious that the ONLY way the guy will ever grow a pair and start trying to fulfill the promises he made in 2016 with regards to immigration and the border wall – is for his support base to stop kissing his backside and to hold a blow torch on it, instead. Case in point. Rush Limbaugh spends 3 hours every day of the week kissing Trump’s hind parts and making excuses for every betrayal he has committed that runs counter to what he promised when… Read more »
