Conservative commentator Ann Coulter on Wednesday slammed fellow conservative Sean Hannity on Wednesday, saying the Fox News host “would endorse communism” if President Trump thought it was a good idea.
“Sean Hannity, bless his heart, has the zeal of the late Trump convert,” Coulter wrote in a blog post.
“He would endorse communism if Trump decided to implement the policies of ‘The Communist Manifesto,’” she wrote.
In the post, titled “Even Trump Can’t Make Goldman Sachs Popular,” Coulter went after Goldman Sachs and Wall Street, saying that Trump should “stay the hell away from them,” especially after his pledge to “drain the swamp.”
Coulter blasted Hannity for defending Trump’s remarks last week about why he only hires “rich people” for his Cabinet, e.g. National Economic Council Director and former Goldman Sachs president Gary Cohn. At a campaign-style rally in Cedar Falls, Iowa, Trump told the crowd, “That’s the kind of thinking we want.’”
“On his show last Thursday, he tried to get me to defend Trump’s ‘rich person’ remarks about Cohn. I wish you could see the segment …,” Coulter said, explaining that the show ran out of time.
“With the zealotry of those who came late to the Trump party, Hannity fully endorsed Trump’s faith in Cohn, adding, ‘I never got a job from a poor man!” She continued.
Hannity responded to the blog, tweeting that Coulter had fallen “in and out of love” with Trump, among other Republicans.

“The best way we serve the people we admire is to tell them the truth,” she added.
