She did pick Trump for a win when everyone else thought she was wrong.

WASHINGTON – Controversial right-wing firebrand Ann Coulter thinks she knows who was behind the anonymous op-ed from a purported senior White House official that landed in The New York Times last week: Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump's trusted son-in-law.

Why would Ivanka Trump's husband and the father of presidential grandkids do such a thing?

"Because he and Ivanka are going to have to go back to the Upper East Side and go to the Hamptons," Coulter told the Daily Beast in an interview published Thursday. "They’re probably worried that Trump will be removed within the next few years."

She noted the timing of the op-ed, which ran after the couple went to the funeral for Sen. John McCain. It also was "right after Labor Day, so they were probably feeling wistful for the Hamptons. And the only way they can get back in is if they can say, 'Don’t worry, we’re the ones who stopped the wall.' "

Apparently, no fan of the president's son-in-law, Coulter's new book, "Resistance Is Futile! How the Trump-Hating Left Lost Its Collective Mind," includes a hypothetical scenario where Trump has Kushner shot.

"I don’t particularly want to attack Jared, but, OK, there was 'Fire Jim Comey, it’s a great idea.' There was ‘Endorse Luther Strange, it’ll be a great idea.' There was 'Let’s start with tax cuts, because that’s what Mitch McConnell wants.' There was 'Let’s hire Anthony Scaramucci – he’s fantastic, Pops!' " she told the Daily Beast.

Coulter is far from the first commentator to offer unsubstantiated speculation about who might be behind the op-ed.

Former Trump adviser Omarosa Maginault Newman has speculated that Vice President Mike Pence or someone in his office was the author, an accusation Pence has vehemently denied.

Trump himself has said "nobody knows who the hell he is, or she" who wrote about a "resistance" inside the White House that works to protect the country from Trump's worst impulses.

I said that last week, that maybe it was Trump trying to tell people not to worry.

I wondered about that only leaks from the WH say that he's ticked about it.

Michael Moore thinks Trump coulda been the anonymous leaker of the NYT op-ed piece.

Michael Moore is why you shouldn't do crack, kids. Just say no. Say no and run!

Michael Moore Thinks Donald Trump Wrote NYTimes Op-Ed Piece: “He’s the master of distraction, he wants us to believe there are adults in the room”

Quote:
Asked if he knew the identity of the anonymous New York Times op-ed leaker in Trump’s circle, Moore said: “No, but if you want me to make a wild guess, Trump wrote it or one of his minions wrote it…. He’s the master of distraction. He’s the King of the Misdirect. If we’ve ever known anything by now, it’s that he does things to get people to turn away and the line that is most identifiable in terms of what he wants the public to believe, the line that says, ‘don’t worry, adults are in the room.’ The idea is to get him to get us to calm down and look away from what he’s really doing.”

I think someone in the mail room at the NYT is the anonymous source. I have no reason to believe otherwise.

Same with Kavanagh's prom date rape. Anonymous stories, especially those intended to harm and just happen to conveniently show up at precisely the right time, are highly suspect.
