Conservative columnist and provocateur Ann Coulter on Friday said the media is to blame for White House strategist Steve Bannon's firing.
Coulter took to Twitter to voice her outrage over what she calls the mainstream media's success in convincing President Donald Trump to oust Bannon.

During an interview with The Daily Caller, Coulter explained why she believes Trump is easily manipulated by the media.
“This makes it appear that Trump is easily manipulable by the media,” Coulter told the Caller. “They just need to give all credit to any White House staffer they want to get rid of. I dread to think of who the media decide to get rid of next.”

Coulter provided Trump with a piece of advice: instead of ousting people like Bannon, he needs to bring in more advisors who are like controversial advisor.
“Not good news. Instead of firing Bannon, because Trump had his nose out of joint about the media giving Bannon all credit for the victory, Trump should’ve hired ten more like him. Media heads would have exploded," Coulter told the Caller.
The columnist even argued that the majority of Trump's advisors and staffers weren't on his side until after the election was over.
“Of course, Trump won the nomination and the presidency of his own will! Bannon supported those issues and supported Trump at least as early as January 2016,” Coulter added. “Who else in the White House did? Most of the White House staff wasn’t on the Trump train until after the election.”

Coulter even suggested Trump start building his controversial wall along the United States-Mexico border so that people don't assume the policy was Bannon's idea.
