Ann Coulter turned on Trump in an unhinged Twitter rant.
But if she was hoping for praise from the Left, she got the exact opposite.
While Republicans criticized her rage as "unhinged," Democrats likewise slammed Coulter.
But they trashed her for using the R-word: "retard."
In a series of tweets, Coulter wrote:
The most disloyal actual retard that has ever set foot in the Oval Office is trying to lose AND take the Senate with him. Another Roy Moore fiasco so he can blame someone else for his own mess.
In a separate tweet, she also added:
Sessions HAD to recuse himself, you complete blithering idiot. YOU did not have to go on Lester Holt's show and announce you fired Comey over the Russian investigation. That's what got you a Special Prosecutor.
So what set off Ann Coulter?
It was the fact that Donald Trump endorsed Jeff Sessions' opponent in the Republican primary in Alabama.
Trump put his name behind Tommy Tuberville, a former colelge football coach who has a strong following in Alabama and a chance at taking Sessions' U.S. Senate seat.

What Kool-Aid is Ann drinking?
As one of the strongest supporters of the wall on the southern border, surely Ann must know that Trump is keeping his promise.
An additional 300 miles of NEW border wall will be complete by the end of the year.
Furthermore, the White House has launched an online streaming webcam showing the progress on the southern border.
The Trump administration is doing everything possible to be as transparent about the southern border.
There's a reason that Trump's campaign slogan is: Promises Made, Promises Kept!
But that still didn't stop Ann Coulter from launching a tirade due to Jeff Sessions.
According to The Blaze:
Ann Coulter ripped into President Donald Trump over the weekend after he publicly rebuked former Attorney General Jeff Sessions on social media.
What did Trump say?
The president has openly berated his former attorney general for recusing himself from the Russia investigation. Trump has even gone so far as to endorse former college football coach Tommy Tuberville over Sessions in the Republican primary for a U.S. Senate seat in Alabama.
"Alabama, do not trust Jeff Sessions. He let our Country down," Trump said Friday. In a follow up on Saturday, Trump told Sessions, "You had no courage, & ruined many lives."
Sessions responded by defending himself. He reminded Trump that his recusal was required by law, and told Trump that his "personal feelings don't dictate who Alabama picks as their senator."
"I will never apologize for following the law and serving faithfully and with honor," Sessions told Trump on Saturday.
What did Coulter say?
The president's overt and personal attacks on Sessions did not sit well with Coulter, who unleashed a tweet storm of nearly a dozen messages at the president early Sunday morning.
And it's clear: Coulter does not like Trump. She referred to him as:
- "A complete moron of a president"
- "The most disloyal actual retard that has ever set foot in the Oval Office"
- "You complete blithering idiot"
Does this mean that Ann Coulter will be voting for Joe Biden in November?
Somehow... we doubt that will be the case, but it will be interesting to see where Ann goes from here.
If Ann was attempting to get some fans from the far left, her Tweetstorm did the exact opposite.
Multiple organizations torched Coulter for her use of the R-word.
According to Yahoo, disability advocates are criticizing Coulter's language:
What happened: Ann Coulter, a media pundit and author, lashed out at President Donald Trump on Sunday, calling him “the most disloyal actual retard that has ever set foot in the Oval Office” in a tweet. Following her use of the offensive term, disability advocates and organizations called Coulter out, asking her to apologize to the disability community.
“It’s certainly legitimate to voice political criticism of elected officials and leadership, but it is completely inappropriate to use the word ‘retard’ in doing so, which is offensive to millions of people with intellectual and cognitive disabilities,” said Jay Ruderman, president of the Ruderman Family Foundation. “Ann Coulter should apologize to the community of people with intellectual and cognitive disabilities and choose her words more carefully.”
We’ve been here before: This also isn’t the first time Coulter has been called out for using the R-word. In 2016, the media pundit used the R-word in a passage of her book, “In Trump We Trust,” to discuss Trump mocking a disabled reporter, implying Trump wasn’t mocking the reporter specifically, but mocking a “standard” disability.
A Mighty Voice: Our community member, Amber Gale, a mother of a son with Down syndrome, explained why the use of this word is still an issue. “We wouldn’t accept an argument like that to normalize other slurs. Racial slurs, ethnic slurs, slurs about someone’s sexual orientation or their religion — it doesn’t matter where or how you learned it, but it does matter that it’s insulting to the people it impacts. It doesn’t matter how deeply embedded into your mindset and language it is. What matters is that it’s hurtful to an entire population of people.” You can submit your first person story, too.
In her Tweetstorm, Ann Coulter claimed that Donald Trump is not building the wall.
But multiple federal agencies have confirmed that the wall is indeed being built.
If it weren't, why would so many Democratic leaders be upset at all the construction on the southern border?
