“We put this lunatic in the White House for one reason,” Coulter said during an appearance on the Yahoo News political podcast Skullduggery, before suggesting that Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) would make a “terrific” challenger to the president if he runs. (Brooks did not answer the outlet’s inquiries about a run.)
“I think he will be [primary challenged],” Coulter said of Trump if he fails to fulfill immigration campaign promises. “I think for sure there’s going to be a primary challenger and it’s not gonna be Jeff Flake.”
“Mo Brooks is terrific,” she added. “The one who should be the senator from Alabama instead of [Sen.] Doug Jones [D-AL], but no Jared-boy [Kushner] said, ‘Endorse Luther Strange, he’s huge in Alabama.’”
The In Trump We Trust author has been a known confidant of the president, but it’s unclear if the two are still communicating after she savaged Trump for ending the government shutdown. The president responded by unfollowing Coulter on Twitter, but she wouldn’t confirm if he has cut her off.
The president recently joked to reporters about Coulter’s hostility.
