Conservative author and commentator Ann Coutler said she was so frustrated with President Trump’s decision to sign the $1.3 trillion spending bill in March, she wanted to hold his head under water “until the bubbles stopped.”

Coulter, who is promoting her new book, “Resistance Is Futile! How the Trump-Hating Left Lost Its Collective Mind,” told The Mark Simone Show Monday that Trump could stave off a “blue wave” in the upcoming midterms if he sticks to his campaign promises, unlike the last time he caved on policy matters.

“You haven’t mentioned the most important tweet Trump sent out yesterday,” Coulter told Simone, adding, “that was he’s threatening to shut down the government if he doesn’t get full funding for the wall, for ending the diversity lottery, and so on and so forth… the full set of campaign promises and I will say, even when I wanted to hold his head under water till the bubbles stopped when he signed that last omnibus bill…”

A surprised Simone can be heard trying to cut her off by saying, “No, no, let’s not…”

But Coulter just barreled through, saying that, “it could have been genius because the next omnibus bill would be coming up right before the election and if he took a strong stand right on his campaign promises right before the election that would be huge. That is the one thing he could do in addition to to constant rallies that would really, really block a gigantic blue wave.”

Coulter also spoke to a “massive, embarrassing blooper” on page 170 of her new book that will make the first edition a collector’s item, but did not say what the mistake was, except to add that it “ruined a joke.”

“For collectors, you definitely want to get the first edition because there’s a massive, embarrassing blooper on page 170, so it’s going to be a collector’s item like those stamps where the stamp is upside down. It will be fixed immediately in the second printing,” she said.

In March, Trump signed a $1.3 trillion spending package after threatening  to veto the bill over concerns on immigration and border security.

The decision prevented a government shutdown, though Trump told assembled reporters he would “never sign another bill like this again,” citing the bill’s relatively meager provisions for his long-promised border wall.

Coulter responded on Twitter saying: “Yeah, because you’ll be impeached.”
