It’s always been about immigration for people like Ann Coulter. I read her most recent column (link, if you must) largely so other people don’t have to. And she’s afraid—afraid that Trump will be the last Republican president because Texas and Florida are about to turn solid blue.
Of course, she doesn’t care about the idea that Trump supporters could have colluded with Russians to steal the presidency. She cares about “the Wall.” But buried in the bile is a money quote about what keeps people like her and other Trump supporters up at night:
Florida and Texas are about five years away from turning solid blue. Trump was our last chance. After this, the country is never going to elect a Republican president again.
So the next time you watch one of those election night videos, remember: If Trump doesn’t keep his immigration promises, Hillary might as well have won.
Trump will leave no legacy whatsoever. Without a wall, he will only be remembered as a small cartoon figure who briefly inflamed and amused the rabble.
From their perspective, time is running out. Really, they think they have just over a month left—assuming that if Democrats control the House there will be no wall and that Trump won’t be reelected in 2020.
