Rumors that Donald Trump had settled on Indiana's fairly useless governor, Mike Pence, as his running mate were flying high and wide on the Internet machine yesterday - and though the Trumpster has yet to publicly confirm those rumors, they did not sit well with the heart and soul of the Republican Party - Ann Coulter. Coulter, herself a strong Trump supporter, said that selecting Pence would be Trump's first mistake of the campaign.
First mistake? Where the hell was she when he seemed to be deliberately driving away millions of Hispanic votes with his pledges to build a monster wall - or his racist tirades against a "Mexican" judge who was actually a Hoosier? Or what about those Republican women who will cast their votes for Hillary because they can't abide Trump's frat boy attitude toward women - like when he ridiculed Carly Fiorina over her personal appearance. Trump is known for making big mistakes - in fact, he seems to revel in it.
Ann posted a series of tweets yesterday that both chastised Trump and offered alternatives to Pence. Coulter's list of "better VP picks for Trump" included (in this order): "Kris Kobach, Scott Brown, Pat McCrory, Mike Crapo, David Clark, Mike Tyson, and my next door neighbor . . ." I'm sure the good people of Kansas, of which there are many, would love to see their secretary of state, Kris Kobach, head off to Washington on the Trump Express.
Free Kansas - Vote Trump / Kobach!
Or better yet: Free Kansas - Trump / Brownback in 2016!
In another tweet, Coulter noted: "Trump has twice Bush's IQ. Why would he pull a Harriet Miers?"
Let's parse that. If Bush is a quarter-wit (and that's being generous), that would make Trump a . . . yup, that works. Good one, Annie!
Coulter then goes on to snarl that maybe Trump should run with Harriet Miers.
Or how about this: Trump and Ann Coulter. That should bring the Cthulhu vote on board. Think of the books you could sell and money you could make after the exposure of a national campaign,
Trump-Coulter! Trump-Coulter! Trump-Coulter! Make America Hate Again!
