Sometimes people’s political views can evolve…or regress.
During an interview with PBS, political commentator Ann Coulter stated that she could possibly vote for Bernie Sanders in the 2020 election, as documented by Fox News.
Everything You Need to Know
During the interview, Coulter stressed what she views as the importance of championing “ordinary Americans.” She also claimed that Sanders’ initial views were supportive of “blue collar workers.”
In Coulter’s own words:
“If he went back to his original position, which is the pro-blue-collar position. I mean, it totally makes sense with him. If he went back to that position, I’d vote for him. I might work for him. I don’t care about the rest of the socialist stuff. Just– can we do something for ordinary Americans?”

Ann Coulter previously supported President Trump, particularly in 2016 when he was still a candidate running for office. The commentator even wrote a book titled, ‘In Trump We Trust.’ Since the president’s time in the White House, Coulter had publicly criticized him for not enacting certain policies in the time frame which she would like.
“Ordinary Americans” vs. Socialism
Coulter’s point about wanting a president to do something for “ordinary Americans” while stating her willingness to look past the “socialist stuff” is the biggest contradiction ever. Perhaps Coulter doesn’t understand, but socialism hurts “ordinary Americans” the most.
Socialism steals the wages, growth, opportunity and upward mobility from “ordinary Americans.” If Coulter truly cares about blue-collar workers as she claims, then the last thing she should be doing is voting for a socialist who will hike taxes through the roof and insert government in virtually every aspect of “ordinary Americans'” lives.
