Ann Coulter: Trump's biggest supporter now?

Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska and Republican vice-presidential nominee isn't the only person who is angry at Donald Trump. Ann Coulter, the author and commentator is just as furious. “Sounds like the big sell-out is coming. Oh well. The voters did what we could,” Coulter tweeted. “If Trump sells out, it’s not our fault.”

Coulter is Trump’s biggest supporter along with Sarah Palin and Sean Hannity close behind; she even has a new book titled In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome! In this book she declares, “There’s nothing Trump can do that won’t be forgiven. Except change his immigration policies.”

So why is she is angry at Trump? For changing his immigration policy. Well, not exactly.  Trump is handing over the controls of his signature campaign promise of “to build a wall around Mexico” to vice president-elect Mike Pence and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.

Trump’s interview with Sean Hannity at a Fox News in a town hall event caused Coulter to fly off the handle. Trump seemed to suggest that his new plan would allow undocumented immigrants to stay in the United States if they pay back taxes. Trump rubbed some salt in Coulter’s wounds when he told Hannity it would be “really hard” to deport people who have been living in the U.S. for years without proper documentation.

Coulter is also angry at Trump’s decision to choose South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley as the next UN Ambassador. “After Nikki Haley, I expect @realDonaldTrump’s next cabinet pick to be Obama,” she said on Twitter. "Both used State of Union address this year to attack Trump.” Her anger here seems to be more on the personal side than the business side.

In her latest blog on November 30th, "How Trump could ruin his presidency", Ms. Coulter writes,

“It's why Trump's supporters stuck with him through thick and thin -- his attack on war hero John McCain (he deserved it), his mocking a disabled reporter (a lie), his lazy first debate performance (totally true), and the "Access Hollywood" tape (oh well).
After he gave that Mexican rapists speech, and never backed down, Trump's base would have brushed off six more "Access Hollywood" tapes. All because they think Trump will take the shot.
But if he breaks a major campaign promise, his supporters will turn on him with a blind ferocity, dwarfing their rage toward Jeb! because Trump's is the more exquisite con. He will have duped them. And he will never, ever, ever get them back.”

We should’ve seen it coming when Trump held a meeting with the New York Times and said he "no longer felt so strongly" about prosecuting Hillary Clinton and her alleged misuse of her personal email server.
