The League of Bitter Trumpers


I call Ann Coulter and Mark Pantano “The League of Bitter Trumpers”. We already know who the Never Trumpers are: basically anyone who writes or wrote for National Review, the fools at the pedarist Lincoln Project, and disgruntled Republican elites who thought they were more worthy.


But the Bitter Trumpers are different. They are those who championed and fought for a Trump presidency, then when he won, got disenchanted with his inability, or refusal, or whatever… to live up to his electoral promises.

Suddenly, Trump not only became someone that they didn’t sign on for, he became an incompetent boob worthy of mockery, disgrace, and of losing his re-election. In Patano’s case, he actively championed for it.

And Mockery they Must.

While I find her books unreadable, I thought Ann Coulter was a good short-form writer. Well, it’s obvious that without good editors at the publications she usually frequents, her short form falls apart too.

From one of her site articles:

“Why, in the last 12 days of his presidency, did Donald Trump suddenly become the authoritarian of liberal fantasies? He sure wasn’t an authoritarian for the past four years — he was a spineless wonder.

“When it came to the wall, bringing the troops home, ending hedge fund managers’ tax loopholes and other campaign promises, Trump backed down to everybody: district court judges, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, the de facto president Jared Kushner, trusted Goldman Sachs alumnus Gary Cohn, useless donors, or any two people raising an objection.

OK, never mind. I didn’t know I’d have to get out of my chair. I’ll just lie and tell my supporters it’s already done.


As much as I can translate the stream of consciousness, Coulter is unhappy at Trump’s inaction and his family, among other things. It’s hilarious that she wrote an entire book in 2016: In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome! and did her usual, dim-witted fangirling on Fox News throughout the campaign and in the first year of his administration. Must have sold a lot of books.

Now Coulter does her best to malign him and everyone in the administration at every turn, whether it’s over the way he handled border issues, Supreme Court nominations, COVID, or the election challenges. There is nothing that Trump can do to make up for her heartbreak. Coulter acts very much like a jilted lover, except she’s the one that did the jilting.

To the point where she asked Jack of Twitter to keep Trump off the platform, but bring back infamous offenders Gavin McInnes and Milo Yiannopoulos.

And demands the GOP (not the Democrats) add to the articles of Trump Impeachment II to include all of his perceived crimes against her.


Unlike Coulter’s Fatal Attraction schtick, Mark Pantano sees himself as an arbiter of truth and defender of the Constitution who, after supporting Trump in 2016, feels he betrayed him. He spent the rest of Trump’s four years warning people to remember that betrayal, and the ills that can befall anyone who still supported his presidency:

But Pantano takes his a step further. Not content to remind Trump how badly he has screwed up, or point out his lies, Pantano actively mocks the MAGA movement—people who have, and still are, standing by President Trump, despite the loss of this election.


It’s one thing to be disappointed, it’s another thing to be spiteful just for sport.

Pantano celebrates Trump’s supposed demise with the rest of the NeverTrumpers, Democrats, and other TDS-ridden beings who inhabit the Twittersphere.

Both Coulter and Pantano are lawyers, so they have that income base. Last I checked, even a marginal lawyer brings in a good salary.

Pantano seems to have a successful podcast, and Coulter probably charges bank for her media appearances, along with the royalties from the grip of books she’s written. So, these two aren’t the typical grifting for money “Conservatives”. What they appear to be grifting for is… attention.

Neither Coulter or Pantano are scoring any points or bringing any new revelation with their Twitter rants and criticisms. They’re just sounding like bitter babies throwing a temper tantrum because Daddy didn’t give their advice, vision for the presidency or policy points adequate consideration.


I guess both of them will continue to titillate their fan bases with post-Trump hot takes and how the incompetent and dangerous policies that Biden will no doubt implement will be all Trump’s fault.

Yeah… Miss me on that.
