When the going gets tough you know who your friends really are and President Trump’s co-called conservative allies are cutting and running as impeachment looms.
The latest of the president’s supporters to stab him in the back is commentator and author Ann Coulter who is now joining with the Democrat-led lynch mob in calling for his ouster.
Ms. Coulter lost it on Tuesday when Trump suggested that there may be no alternative rather than to cut a deal on DACA if the Supreme Court rules against him during its current term.
The reality of the matter is that the entire legal system has been weaponized in order to nullify Trump’s America First agenda and he has faced a fierce resistance every step of the way; a SCOTUS decision would be the final verdict and he would have no choice other than to compromise.
But that is unacceptable to Coulter who is unable to see the forest through the trees.
The prickly pundit’s message to the POTUS – YOU MUST GO!
Okay, that does it. I give up. They can stay. You must go. https://t.co/D6G2YPe8QI

Via The Daily Caller, “Ann Coulter Gives Up On Trump, Tells Him ‘You Must Go’”:
Conservative personality Ann Coulter said that it is time for President Donald Trump to “go” on Twitter Tuesday after he tweeted about making a deal with Democrats on DACA.
“Many of the people in DACA, no longer very young, are far from ‘angels.’ Some are very tough, hardened criminals. President Obama said he had no legal right to sign order, but would anyway. If Supreme Court remedies with overturn, a deal will be made with Dems for them to stay!” Trump tweeted Tuesday.
Coulter was one of Trump’s staunchest supporters during the 2016 election, even publishing a pro-Trump book titled, “In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!”
Her fuse has been burning down for months and earlier this year in another Twitter tirade, Coulter compared Trump to Jeb Bush:
Trump proposes amnesty. We voted for Trump and got Jeb!

Coulter no longer enjoys the prominence that she once did since the glory days when she adorned the cover of Time magazine way back during the George W. Bush years and can be considered a fading personality.
As such, she has become increasingly critical of Trump after being one of his biggest supporters and at the time of the greatest need for unity when there is a coup underway, she turns on him.
Granted that one of the president’s campaign vows was to get the illegal immigration problem under control, build the wall and round up those who have overstayed their welcome but it is inconceivable that any true supporter of Trump would throw a snit over one issue at such a perilous time.
She joins Matt Drudge, another turncoat who went over to the dark side.
For over two decades The Drudge Report has been a must-read for conservatives who were looking for the real scoop but sadly it has now joined the rest of the anti-Trump media.
The internet’s top news aggregator hit it big when Drudge broke the story about Bill Clinton’s sleazy affair with intern Monica Lewinsky that mainstream media attempted to bury and was a must-read during the subsequent impeachment.
Drudge was an indispensable resource for conservatives for years from Clinton through George W. Bush and the war on terror to the horror of the Obama years and his site was also instrumental in putting President Donald J. Trump into the White House.
But the things have changed – The Drudge Report is now practically indistinguishable from CNN and MSNBC.
It is disturbing to see former friends betraying the president when he most needs their support bur perhaps they were never his friends in the first place and just opportunists and grifters who have now moved on to the next big thing.
With friends like this, who needs enemies?
