Following the bombshell news that Donald Trump had fired FBI Director James Comey, the reaction was mixed across the board. While many fans of the president were thrilled with his decision, Trump supporter and author Ann Coulter was not.

Coulter on Trump

Throughout the 2016 presidential election, speculation surrounded Donald Trump as to what his relationship was with Russia. Despite denying any wrongdoing, Trump was forced to play defense on the issue as evidence began backing up the claims against him. From his hidden tax returns and praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin, to advisers and associates begin caught communicating with Kremlin officials, the former host of "The Apprentice" has been backed into a corner on the issue, labeling any reports that conflict with his narrative as "fake news." With weeks to go in the election last year, FBI Director James Comey brought up the Hillary Clinton email scandal, which many believe led to her downfall.

While Comey seemed like a positive for the president, he's caused issues as of late in regards to the investigation into Russia's impact in the election. After the news broke that Comey had been fired by Trump on Tuesday, critics and supporters of the president responded in various ways. As seen on her Twitter account on May 9, Ann Coulter took another step off the Trump train with a pair of critical tweets.

Taking to her Twitter account on Tuesday night, Ann Coulter accused Donald Trump of firing James Comey in an attempt to deflect away from the fact that there has been little to progress on his long-promised border wall.

"Comey firing is a red herring to distract from the fact that Trump hasn't started building the wall," Coulter tweeted out.

In a follow-up tweet, Ann Coulter appeared to mock Donald Trump over James Comey's firing, citing his previous "Muslim ban" executive order being blocked by a federal judge in Hawaii.

"Very risky of Trump to fire Comey without first getting permission from a federal judge in Hawaii," Coulter wrote. This isn't the first time that Coulter has been highly critical of the billionaire real estate mogul, as she went on a similar Twitter tirade last month after Trump decided to order a military attack on both Syria and an ISIS-controlled tunnel in Afghanistan.

Moving forward

While Ann Coulter and other supporters of the president continue to hit back at Donald Trump over various issues, others have shown that they are still loyal to the core. The president is currently sitting on just a 40 percent approval rating, with most his core base standing by his side, though it appears that number could soon decrease as well.
