Ann Coulter shreds Sean Hannity: 'He would endorse communism' if Trump did

Conservative provocateur Ann Coulter slammed Sean Hannity in a blistering column on Wednesday, saying the Fox News commentator "would endorse communism" if Donald Trump did.

"Sean Hannity, bless his heart, has the zeal of the late Trump convert," Coulter wrote in the column on her website. "He would endorse communism if Trump decided to implement the policies of 'The Communist Manifesto.'"

The two firebrands have been feuding since last week, when Coulter accused Hannity of censoring from his show her comments about Trump's relationship with Goldman Sachs.

Ann Coulter's anti-Trump Twitter rant
Yesterday, the Trump administration kept in place Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty.
Today's BORDER WALL CONSTRUCTION UPDATE: Miles completed yesterday--Zero; Miles completed since Inauguration--Zero. NEXT UPDATE TOMORROW.
This daily Trump melodrama is worth it ONLY if he’s really going to build the wall, cut off Muslim refugees and deport illegals.
Anyone in a Southwestern state who strolls to the border & drops a brick will have done more to build the wall than @realDonaldTrump.
If @VP Pence were smart, starting making noises about how he'd LOVE to build a wall. He'd be sworn in as president about 2 weeks.
I thought w/ Trump we'd finally have a president helping OUR country. So far: Syria, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Italy, China, N Kor. Today: Cuba!
At least Cuba's in our hemisphere. How long can it be before Trump gets to America? https://t.co/vTf5osrr15

Coulter said she had criticized Trump's praise for his chief economic adviser Gary Cohn, the former Goldman Sachs president, whom he called one of the "great, brilliant business minds" on his Cabinet during a rally in Iowa last week.

Trump added that he did not want a "poor person" running the economy, and "that's the kind of thinking we want" — a line Coulter told Hannity she objected to.

"On his show last Thursday, he tried to get me to defend Trump's "rich person" remarks about Cohn," Coulter said. "I wish you could see the segment, but, unfortunately, Hannity decided no one would ever see it."

The pre-recorded segment was cut for time, Hannity said. The host has faced criticism for his unceasingly pro-Trump coverage.

But to Coulter, who bills herself an early Trump supporter, it does no good to blindly praise the president.

"Those of us who have been here for a while ... know how to party responsibly," she said. "The best way we serve the people we admire is to tell them the truth."
