When Donald Trump couldn’t find a friend otherwise, “colorful” conservative author Ann Coulter was there to fill in the gap.
After making an inflammatory comment Saturday about U.S. Sen. John McCain being captured during his Navy service in the Vietnam War, it seems the entire Republican Party has turned on Trump.

to protect unarmed service members: ‘The war is here’
But there was Coulter, who has been supportive of Trump on his stance on immigration, taking to social media to defend the business magnate.
Saying Trump, a political outsider, “was being flip and misspoke,” Coulter instead pointed her finger at politicians: “Trump was being flip and misspoke in 3 seconds. The rest of our guys, with conscious deliberation, sell out the voters and the country.”

Sticking with the immigration angle, Coulter earlier ripped into GOP presidential contender Marco Rubio after the Florida senator condemned Trump’s comment about McCain.
“America’s POWs deserve much better than to have their service questioned by the offensive rantings of Donald Trump,” Rubio posted on Twitter.
Coulter somehow tied Rubio’s rebuke of Trump to the deadly attack on U.S. military personnel in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Yes, @marcorubio thinks they deserve to be gunned down by immigrants like Muhammad Abdulazeez at recruiting centers. https://t.co/tKGolEsyWn

The response on social media was not as intense as what Trump experienced by a long shot, but Coulter took her share of abuse. It seems friends are hard to come by for “colorful” characters these days.
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
@AnnCoulter trump blew it big time attack policies not veterans

@AnnCoulter Ann, you might want to sit down for a while and have a drink to regain your composure. @marcorubio

.@AnnCoulter @marcorubio No he doesn’t. Would you please stop smearing a good man just because you disagree with him? WTF is wrong with you?

@AnnCoulter @Allstar2star Blanket statements are what gets Trump tangled up…

Apparently @AnnCoulter & @realDonaldTrump are having a contest to see who can make the dumbest comment. Not sure who’s winning.

@AnnCoulter @BltProofDiction Seriously? You’re gonna let him off that easy? I’m very conservative but Trump is an embarrassment.

@AnnCoulter Being “flip” like that isn’t very presidential. It was an unnecessary, self-inflicted wound from a man who should know better.

@AnnCoulter – #1 way to offend GOP’rs is to step on a decorated vet. He trampled on sacred ground- dagnabit!

@AnnCoulter no, Ann. Please, I love you and like a lot about @realDonaldTrump, but this is bad. Don’t spin it. Major blunder, and callous.

@AnnCoulter It’s not ‘flip’ to condemn a whole section of our community. But I defend anyone’s right to be as stupid as they wish..
