  • Ann Coulter called Donald Trump "abjectly stupid" in a recent podcast interview on The Dishcast with Andrew Sullivan.
  • She also accused the former president of betraying his base when he failed to follow through on his one promise of building a border wall.

Ann Coulter called Trump "abjectly stupid" and accused him of "betraying" his base in a recent interview on The Dishcast with Andrew Sullivan.

In a conversation about the former president on November 6, Coulter and Sullivan took turns bashing Trump - claiming he failed to deliver on campaign promises made to his right-wing base.

"I had no idea how abjectly stupid the man is," Coulter said. "I didn't think he was a genius, but I didn't think he was that stupid."

She characterized voters in his base as "these poor, left-behind Americans who were waiting their whole lives for someone to care about them. And he says he cares about them and he not only betrays them, but he lies to them."

Coulter - who has targeted Trump from the right wing - accused him of "not keeping his promises" by building a wall on the southern border with Mexico


"The one thing he's gotta do is build the wall. My theory was, if he doesn't build the wall he loses reelection. He didn't build the wall, he lost reelection," she said. "So I think, I couldn't imagine anyone could be so stupid to run on one thing ... He's just a very, very, very stupid man."

In addition to her recent attacks on the former GOP standard-bearer, Coulter has also praised his opponents.

In September, she lauded President Joe Biden for keeping a promise Trump abandoned in office: getting American troops out of Afghanistan.

At the same time, she called Trump a "wuss."
