“You realize our candidate is mental? It’s like constantly having to bail out your sixteen-year-old son from prison” — Trump supporter Ann Coulter
Presidential candidate Donald Trump reached zenith heights early on by not only talking about the illegal invasion, but actually saying he was going to do something about it. His “I’m gonna build a wall along our Southern border and make Mexico pay for it,” resonated with Americans weary of supporting costly illegals, (2013 figures) who not only enter our country by stealth, but make outrageous demands as they refuse to assimilate while taking American jobs. The billionaire reality showman easily found a loyal base.
We all knew Trump was shallow and not presidential. His inconsistent political background as a registered Democrat, Independent and Republican has been worrisome. His lack of preparedness, vacillation on key issues, hurled insults, vindictiveness, loutish crudeness and repetitive, blustery responses have been unnerving, but the assumption has been the successful entrepreneur would grow with exposure to the political realm and make us proud. That hasn’t happened. He has only grown in cringe-worthiness, alienating more than uniting and failing miserably with the women he needs to win. Social conservatives and evangelicals are especially apprehensive.
Presidential primary campaigns are typically rough and tumble affairs, but the current contest has taken an especially heavy toll on Republican unity at a time when we can least afford it — with Hillary Clinton salivating at the prospect of returning to the White House.
Now Trump’s strong conservative supporter Ann Coulter has called him “mental.” The author of Adios America! The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country Into a Third World Hellhole concedes, “Let’s just talk about what he’s good on. He’s the only one who’s going to build a wall, but please stop testing our patience on the rest of this stuff,” she begged The Donald.
We feel Coulter’s pain.
