The Trump Fans are Totally Not a Cult

No, seriously, why do people keep accusing them of that? I mean, one of the things that’s a signature of a cult is that the cult leader is subject to deification himself, and there’s no evidence that Trump people are doing that, right?

I mean, except for the fact that Ann Coulter – who is pretty much the smartest of the Trump supporters, by a mile – is writing a book called “In Trump we Trust.” But I’m telling you, there’s absolutely no symbolism to the fact that “God” usually goes where “Trump” currently is in the title of that book.

 Sentinel, a conservative imprint of Penguin Random House, announced Monday that Coulter’s “In Trump We Trust: The New American Revolution” will be published Aug. 23. According to Sentinel, Coulter will call on “conservatives, moderates, and even disgruntled Democrats” to unite behind the presumptive Republican nominee, whom Coulter has supported for months.

My working theory on Coulter – who’s been a contemptible human being for years, if a smart one – is that she’s just been drunk tweeting for nine solid months. I’m interested to see if that kind of production can be sustained for the length that is required usually to write a book.
