Trump immigration flip ruins Ann Coulter's book

After making a hard-line stance on immigration the centerpiece of his campaign, Donald Trump is now saying he basically wants to keep things the way they are now.

"What people don't know is Obama got tremendous numbers of people out of the country. Bush the same thing. Lots of people were brought out of the country with the existing laws. Well, I'm going to do the same thing," Trump told Bill O'Reilly in an interview.

Trump's pivot is turning a lot of attention toward one Trump supporter in particular. Ann Coulter just released a book called "In Trump We Trust," detailing why a Trump presidency would be great for the U.S.

On the very first page, Coulter complains about what she perceives as the decline of American exceptionalism and says: "There's nothing Trump can do that won't be forgiven. Except change his immigration policies." Whoops.

Coulter seemed pretty steamed about Trump veering away from his old immigration plan, sarcastically tweeting, "Well, if it's 'hard,' then nevermind." But that doesn't mean Coulter is done with Trump. 

She told BusinessWeek reporter Joshua Green that she supports Trump "like the people of North Korea worship their dear leader — blind loyalty. Once he gave the Mexican rapist speech, I'll walk across glass for him."
