With the White House likely scurrying to figure out who among them are snitches, following the New York Times op-ed earlier this month from a “senior White House official” denouncing the president, conservative social and political commentator, Ann Coulter, thinks she knows who it is.
Coulter, in an interview with The Daily Beast, talked about her new book, “Resistance Is Futile! How the Trump-Hating Left Lost Its Collective Mind,” as well as her thoughts on the Trump Presidency.
Coulter believes that Jared Kushner may be the author of the much maligned op-ed. She thinks that after he and wife Ivanka Trump attended the McCain funeral, where there was much negativity shown toward President Trump, that they are now worried that the president will eventually be removed from office.
“They had just gone to the McCain funeral, and [the op-ed] was right after Labor Day, so they were probably feeling wistful for the Hamptons,” Coulter tells The Daily Beast. “And the only way they can get back in is if they can say, ‘Don’t worry, we’re the ones who stopped the wall.’”
Coulter has long been a supporter of Trump’s wall, and has oftentimes criticized the president for his inability to keep his campaign promise of actually building the wall. While she supports President Trump, she refers to him as “chemotherapy for the country,” saying, “it’s unpleasant to go through, you vomit, your hair falls out—but it kills cancer cells, and you live…[and] everyone on The New York Times’ editorial board will die.”
Coulter also points to Kushner’s odd decisions and suggestions he has made over the last 19 months, including him pushing Trump to fire of Jim Comey, his endorsement of Luther Strange, and his hiring of Anthony Scaramucci, among others, to suggest that he may be sabotaging the White House.
Coulter also made quite a strange statement in saying, “If Trump realized that Jared Kushner was ruining his presidency and shot him, and then he fired the U.S. attorney investigating the crime, that would be a textbook case of obstruction of justice.”
Whether or not Kushner actually did write the op-ed, probably won’t ever be known — at least not until after Trump is out of office. Regardless though, Coulter believes that Kushner is out of place, and was hired simply because of his relationship to the President rather than his expertise on anything in particular.
