Right-wing commentator Ann Coulter tore into former President Donald Trump on an edition of the conservative Timcast podcast, saying the defeated politician is “profoundly stupid,” Brandon Gage reported for AlterNet.

"Well he's always known how to be a celebrity, right? Like that, that reminded me of the reality TV show aspect of Trump. Right? He knew, he knew..." host Lydia Smith began.
"I don't, I think you're giving him more – I don't even think it's knowing how to be – I think he is a narcissistic, I, I, I didn't – the one thing I didn't know when I wrote In Trump We Trust is how profoundly stupid he is. Um, I made very clear in the book the only thing he could do – we will forgive him for anything. And I defended him," Coulter recalled.
"The day after the Access Hollywood, you know, p*ssygrabbing tape came out – I was giving a speech before like five thousand people in California up in farmland, and I was pedaled to the metal defending him," Coulter said.
"And, and, you know, I said, 'we'll forgive him for anything, but unless you betray us on immigration,' and oh, oh, guess what he did?"
Coulter is one of many GOP backers who dumped Trump after making a mess of the Oval Office, where he shared key intelligence information to then Russian Ambassador to the US Sergei Kislyak and current foreign minister Sergei Lavrov.
He publicly denounced Trump for being a pseudo-conservative who doesn’t read and cannot lead.
