‘FIRE YOUR SPEECHWRITER’

Ann Coulter Blasts Trump: The ‘Lamest, Sappiest’ SOTU Ever

Donald Trump lapped up the applause during his State of the Union speech Tuesday night—but the reception outside has been much frostier. Ann Coulter, who was once the president’s biggest cheerleader in the conservative media, tore the speech to shreds after Trump’s unconvincing attempts to play nice and act like a unifying president. “This was the lamest, sappiest, most intentionally tear-jerking SOTU ever. Please fire your speechwriter, @RealDonaldTrump,” wrote Coulter on Twitter. She went on the call the address “lame, Oprah, sappy stuff” and said she was “too tired to watch his whole speech.” Coulter appeared to be irritated that Trump didn’t dedicate enough time to the border wall, saying: “45 minutes in, we got 30 seconds on the wall. He better be breaking ground tomorrow.” Coulter turned on Trump after he caved on his demand for border-wall funding and ended his shutdown, calling him “the biggest wimp.”
