I hope he doesn't exit yet. He'll be far more effective if he's on stage and someone to the right of him is able to call him on all his failures. It also will cement that person to more rightwing positions. He needs to run and lose the nomination.

Yes. No one thinks Bernie didn't move the Dems left in 2016 and 2020. No one. PS I'm not a conservative, but it's a typical take from leftists to think anyone who disagrees with them is.

It is so sad...I, and many others, had such high hopes for him and the future of our nation.

All he had to do was keep his word and do what he promised to do.

For his first 2 years Trump had a majority in both the Senate and House but in all fairness to Trump they seemed like more of a majority for the Chamber of Commerce than for the will of the voters who elected them.

Ann is so right. This nation needs Conservatives/Republicans who will do what they promise to do not only in the White House but in both chambers of Congress. While I thank them all for the Supreme Court (as bad as their timing could be), Trump had his chance and so has most of the Republican leadership.

Trump is now cry babying and attacking Desantis!! What a clown! This will not bode well for Trump. Egotistical ass!

Politics is all about attacking. All the left does is attack us. We finally got somebody who fights back. Stop crying. You’re the one who needs to stop crying.

Trump attacking Desantis is just what the right needs. More division.

I’m fine with that. They thought Donald Trump attacking McCain was gonna be a problem. They were wrong.

Well said. Electing Trump again would be worse than electing brain dead Fetterman.

It’s beyond me why trump train riders are not getting off the train, it’s going nowhere!

Trump was a necessary 'paradigm shift' for the Republican party. We should all be thankful he 'happened'. And so far, there is no Republican stepping up to build on this shift at least from a national perspective. There's no need to disown Trump at least at this juncture. I really appreciate Anne's writings and others on the right as well - but no one has sketched out a way forward in the way that President Trump has to date....it's hard to get off the train when there's no other to take at the moment.

We did need that shift, it started the movement, however, I believe he will hurt us more than anything!

Three comments devoid of evidence. That’s the problem with political discourse these days. Conversation without evidence simply mindlessly repeating what you hear in the ether.

Sorry, it's the opposite, Trump merged w GOP E. Trump embraced the Establishment as soon as he won, thus nullifying the historic defeat of the GOP Estab. and the desperate voters who made it happen. Jared was de facto president, was 100% in charge of his campaign, continues to run and staff the Trump/Kushner family and girlfriends political life and profit centers, countless "America 1st" groups staffed by open borders globalist Jared cronies. By 2018 Karl Rove was called in to "advise" Trump. Trump accepted $2.5 million from Rove's Am Crosrds in 2020. By 2019 Trump and Jared had merged finances w. RNC via WinRed. Trump/Kushner "ironically breathed new life into the RNC" gushed Henry Barbour. Trump was elected in Nov. 2016 for one reason, ie, unconditionally promising a Wall. If Hillary had asked him on tv if he was going to ask congress for money or permission to build the Wall, he would've said yes, and Hillary wd've been elected. I'd never listened to another word he said. Trump became a worse neocon than McCain. In March 2020 Trump overthrew the US by suspending normal government, decreeing "emergency government" by fiat, still in place 3 years later, strongly supported "social distancing," lockdowns, and warp speed vaccines. Jared accepted a $250 million credit line from Soros in 2015.

On the basis of no evidence whatsoever do you make this claim. But I’m here willing to listen. Got any evidence?

I'm pro-Trump running and losing in the primary. If he runs we're likely to get someone to the right of him who will hopefully take and keep positions that are more MAGA than Trump. If Trump doesn't run we could easily get an establishment pick.

One can only hope that DeSantis takes a page out of Ronald Reagan's positive leadership example and offers to make it Morning in America again. I for one am sick of Trump's incessant narcissism.

Please, lets again have that shining city on a hill.

Thank you for your perspective Ann. Whatever the future holds, we are now all awake, passionate, debating and fighting for what is in the best interest of our country. This is good. Thank you again Ann.

I now have TDS.

I have been done with Trump for awhile but sht talking DeSantis on Saturday before the election is a total deal breaker .

Now Trump claims to have dirt on DeSantis IF* governor DeSantis run for the presidency in 2024.

To deal with narcissists I think it's best to go ' no contact ' and ignore the egotistical, jerk.

Spot on assessment! It's also worth mentioning that even the good Republican candidates that weren't hand picked by Trump were still hurt by his reverse Midas Touch. Case in point Blake Masters, who clearly has a high enough IQ to know that Trump lost in 2020, but who was forced to beat around the bush enough to get his endorsement in the primary. This allowed Democrats to compare him to Trump and call him an "election denier" over the course of the campaign.

Note to future GOP candidates - two things can be true at once. Yes, voters do not care about January 6th or "saving democracy," BUT that doesn't mean they like sore losers. Yes, a lot of the COVID voting changes benefited Democrats in 2020, but harping on that and refusing to admit that Trump lost is not gonna win you any favor from anyone besides Trump (who is basically irrelevant at this point as Ann has perfectly showcased in this post).

Ann Coulter is as close to infallible as any mortal can be.

But even she is occasionally wrong.

There is one subject on which she errs here: Brian Kemp is one of the worst Republican office holders in the United States.

This is not just opinion or feelings. I live in Georgia. I have witnessed his career. What he has done to betray the Republican base simply defies imagination. The word "RINO" doesn't even begin to cover what he is.

I could write pages about what Kemp has done.

I'll limit myself to just 2 examples.

The BLM and the Antifa in Georgia raised a fuss about the Citizens Arrest Law which allows a citizen to detain someone he catches committing a crime until the police arrive.

Kemp sense a photo op to posture as a friend of Black people. He plagiarized the false claims of the BLM and the Antifa - that the Citizens Arrest Law was passed by a "White racist legislature" for the purpose of enabling White people to harass and persecute Black people.

The Citizens Arrest Law only codified the Anglo-Saxon common law. When Kemp made this claim, I googled Citizens Arrest Laws. At that time 48 States in the Union had Citizens Arrest Laws and all 6 States in New England had them.

Kemp split enough Repubicans in the Legislature off to join with the Democrats in repealing the law.

When he signed the law taking away our rights to detain criminals, he invited the mother of Ahmad Arbury, the Black so-called "victim" in the Brunswick incident, and had her stand by his side and handed her the pen.

Second Example:

Some 5,000 Blacks invaded the White neighborhood in north Atlanta in the wake of the George Floyd incident. They invaded our neighborhood night after night. It was not a 1 time affair. They looted buildings and then they burned them. They destroyed tens of millions of dollars in property. They smashed car windows. They terrorized the area.

Kemp called out the National Guard. Yes. He cites this to show what a tough guy he is.

But Kemp ordered the National Guard not to "interfere" with the rioters. The Guard was ordered not to make any arrests. The Guard was told never to approach the rioters but to maintain a minimum 100 foot distance. The Guard just watched the mobs as they carried out their crimes night after night after night.

Not one single person was ever prosecuted for these crimes.

We never had a Governor in Georgia history who ordered law enforcement not to protect citizens from racist mobs even in the so-called "bad old days" of segregation...until we had Kemp.

Kemp is our enemy. He hates Trump. He hates us. He is the tool of the establishment.

That's why the liberal Atlanta Journal Constitution praises him and hails him as supposedly being one of the most admired, respected and influential Repubicans in the country.

I have prepared a multi-page summation of such things from Kemp's record. I will try to put it into Ms. Coulter's hands.

A Governor who took away my right to detain a criminal and who orders law enforcement not to "interfere" with criminal mobs is not one of us.

We also need an autopsy of the Republican establishment. They ran on inflation 24/7 instead of immigration and crime, which appeal to rural+blue collar voters.

This article could have been written by CNN. Every election article at CNN about a Republican losing....is riddled with "Trump backed" candidate.

So what. The issues are the same as a "DeSantis backed" candidate.

Elections have always appealed to the lowest denominator among us. Stupid [and usually false] attack ads. And of course the person with the most money....can run the most ads.

The richest liar wins! Hooray....I mocking say.
