Ann Coulter, the erstwhile supporter of President Donald Trump, absolutely excoriated Newt Gingrich over his comments defending the president on the deal he struck with Democratic leaders to re-open the government without border funding.
Gingrich was interviewed on Fox News when he advised Trump to ignore the outrage and furor over the deal, including Ann Coulter by name.
"He should not pay any attention to Ann Coulter," Gingrich said.
"Ann Coulter's never run for office," he said. "She doesn't know anything about how you put a majority together. She's off here in some fantasy land where she gets to be noisy, which helps her sell books."
"The fact is, the president's base is with the president," Gingrich concluded. "If he goes to them and says, 'I got this done for the wall, I got this done to protect America, I'm doing these good things you believe in,' the base is going to say, 'fine.' "
Here's video of Gingrich telling Trump to ignore Coulter:
Gingrich went on in the interview to advise that the president concede to giving Democrats some protections for illegal aliens who have been brought in to the country as children.
Coulter did not appreciate Gingrich's comments, and she fired back at him in a scathing set of tweets on Monday.
"Newt's right," Coulter responded. "I'm just selling books. But at least I don't have to kiss Trump's a** to do so."
"Newt Gingrich claims I'm in 'fantasyland' for criticizing the president for breaking his central campaign promise," she added in another tweet.
"It has now come to my attention that Trump HAS built the full border wall & it's working BEAUTIFULLY," she added sarcastically. "That is why Trump is sailing to re-election!"
"Poor Newt," she continued. "At least Rudy got a job."
Coulter was apparently referring to Rudy Giuliani, who heads the president's personal legal team.
"Newt seems to believe that you have to run for office to comment on public affairs," she added. "The constitution doesn't just give free speech to disgraced politicians."
"It also affords speech rights to another category called "'citizens,'" she said.
"To those who would attack Newt," she said in another tweet, "please remember that just as collusion is not a crime, kissing the emperor's a** violates no federal law."
"Trump voters have fallen into 2 factions: The Tell the Truth faction and the Kiss the Emperor's A** camp," she said. "Newt and I have picked different camps."
Even the president, when asked about Coulter's objections to his deals, took a small jab at her during an interview with the Washington Post Sunday.
"I hear she's become very hostile," Trump said. "Maybe I didn't return her phone call or something."
