Ann Coulter dishes on who Dems should nominate to beat Trump, and why the party will never do it

While Ann Coulter believes former Vice President Joe Biden gives the Democratic Party its best chance to defeat President Donald Trump, the conservative firebrand is sure that the party will blow it in its pursuit of identity politics.

“If the Democrats want to beat Trump, I think they should pick Biden,” Coulter told TMZ, when asked about this week’s Democratic debates. “But I don’t think they want to beat Trump, they just want to harangue him and pester the American people.”

“Two years ago, I predicted Kamala [Harris] would be the Democrat’s nominee,” she said. “So I kinda want it to be Kamala Harris, just because I would be so cool if I was right.”

The prediction coming, Coulter said, because Democrats are now voting on “identity politics.”

“She’s a woman. She’s black. Who else could it be?” she asked. “How do you have something better than the first black president? The first black woman president.”

 

Coulter also remarked on just how far left the Democratic Party has drifted in such a short time.

“I kept watching all of these debates and thinking I wish we could go back to those reasonable moderates, Hillary [Clinton], [Barack] Obama and John Edwards,” she said, with a laugh.

“It’s a strange fever that has overtaken the Democratic Party, where they feel like to show how much they hate Trump they are just going to take the complete opposite position of everything he says,” Coulter observed.

It was at this point that Coulter opted to express her frustrations with Trump, saying he’s not fulfilling many of the things he said he was going to do, suggesting that this is what Democrats should be hitting the president on.

When asked by the TMZ video-journalist if she still supports President Trump, Coulter hesitated.

“Well, I figure we have 16 months left to scare him into keeping his promises,” she said. “The thing with Trump is… you know, you get the outrage without the policy. You do want a Republican who will go ahead and build the wall and won’t mind when he’s attacked and called Hitler.”

Of course, before Trump there wasn’t a Republican president taken serious action toward delivering a wall — and with the Supreme Court’s ruling last week that Trump can use $2.5 billion in Pentagon funding to build a border wall, the president will soon be delivering on a key campaign promise.

But Coulter is far from satisfied.

“I’m sorry,” she said. “I’ll start defending him when he starts building the wall, when he taxes remittances (money immigrants send to foreign countries), when he signs the anchor baby policy. But when it’s just for a tweet, c’mon, that’s not what we voted for you for.”

It could be worse, Coulter. You could be dealing with Hillary Clinton determining U.S. immigration policy.
