Ann Coulter Calls ‘Grotesque’ Donald Trump A Disappointment

Erstwhile staunch Donald Trump booster Ann Coulter has called the president ?grotesque? and disappointing as she appeared poised to bail on him even before The Washington Post reported Monday that he leaked classified information to the Russians.

?Everyone who voted for him knew his personality was grotesque,? but it was the issues, the conservative commentator and author told The Daily Caller in an interview Sunday. Now, as far as the issues go, ?boy, things don?t look good,? she said.

?I?m not very happy with what has happened so far,? Coulter added. ?I guess we have to try to push him to keep his promises. But … if he doesn?t keep his promises I?m out.?

?Where is the great negotiation?? she asked. ?That budget the Republicans pushed through was like a practical joke.? Did we win anything??

She even called developments in the administration a ?disaster so far.?

Coulter is particularly disappointed about lack of progress on building a wall along the Mexican border and suggested people send bricks to House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.).

Coulter said she was opposed from the beginning to the president hiring daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner. ?Americans don?t like that, I don?t like that. That?s the one fascist thing he?s done. Hiring his kids.?

Coulter said that being on the Trump ride is like being told you?ve got six days to make it from Chicago to Los Angeles, except you spend the first three days heading instead to New York. 

?He can still turn around and get us to LA in three days, but I?m a little nervous,? she added.

?If we just keep going to New York … again, I?ll say we had no choice, but the Trump-haters were right ? it?s a nightmare. I can?t even contemplate that. Right now I?m still rooting for him to turn around and take us toward LA.?

Coulter helped drum up big support for Trump during the presidential campaign and wrote the book ?In Trump We Trust,? in which she said she ?worshiped? him with ?blind loyalty.?

?I have no regrets for ferociously supporting him. What choice did we have?? she asked. ?I don?t apologize. … He said all the right things and nobody else would even say it.?

She said she still believes in ?Trumpism? and largely faults the Republican Congress for moving too slowly to make changes. ?They are swine.?

She called Trump the ?last shot? but then named U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions as someone she might consider supporting in the future.

Coulter was scheduled to speak last month supporting crackdowns on undocumented immigrants in a controversial appearance at the University of California, Berkeley. She eventually canceled after a back-and-forth with university officials over security issues.

ESPN Broadcaster To Become First Woman To Call NFL Play-By-Play In 30 Years

Pass the mic. An ESPN broadcaster will become the first woman in 30 years to call play-by-play for an NFL regular season game, Sports Illustrated reported Sunday.

The outlet, citing multiple sources, said Beth Mowins will call ESPN?s Monday Night Football game between the Los Angeles Chargers and host Denver Broncos on Sept. 11. Former NFL coach Rex Ryan will likely serve as the analyst.

Mowins joined the sports network in 1994 and has called college football broadcasts since 2005, according to her ESPN bio. In addition, she served as the main person in the booth for the Raiders? local preseason broadcasts for the last two seasons.

?I am more than confident Beth can call an NFL game for a national audience,? Vittorio De Bartolo, executive producer of broadcasting for the Raiders, told SI.

It?s about time.

Gayle Sierens was the last and only woman to call play-by-play for a regular season NFL game, leading the NBC booth on Dec. 27, 1987, for a Seahawks-Chiefs matchup. The New York Times noted previously that the network asked her back for six more games, but Sierens said the local news station where she served as a full-time anchor feared the football gig would interfere with her regular job.

?I used to say that I kicked down the door, but no one else came in,? Sierens told the Times in 2009. ?But I think that day is nearing. I really do.?

Apparently, the day is finally here.

The Huffington Post has reached to Mowins for comment.
