In a new Substack posted this week, right-wing author Ann Coulter railed against pro-Trump filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza’s election fraud film, 2,000 Mules, bemoaning it as “stupid,” and saying, “Is there anyone in Trump World who isn’t trying fleece the Deplorables? Haven’t they suffered enough?”
But her post quickly incurred the wrath of right-wing talk radio host Mark Levin, who decried Coulter as a “grifter.”
Does it get any lower than Coulter? Speaking of grifters …https://t.co/cGkdsgEKNc

“The movie tells Trump diehards (a dwindling crowd) that their man probably DID win the 2020 election!” wrote Coulter. “Using cellphone tracking data obtained by ‘True the Vote’ (which sounds like a group named by Melania Trump — ‘BE BEST!’) D’Souza claims to have proof that 2,000 people delivered multiple ballots to election drop boxes in the five crucial battleground states that Trump lost.”
However, Coulter noted, the claim made by the film has several problems — cell phone data doesn’t actually prove anyone delivered multiple ballots, and many of the states True the Vote tracked this data in actually make it legal for people to deliver ballots on behalf of other voters.
“The second problem — my problem with the movie — is the idea that Trump’s 2020 loss cries out for an explanation. We know for a fact that Trump was wildly popular, sailing to a landslide election on the love of a grateful nation. Only something nefarious could explain his defeat!” wrote Coulter. “Hello? Trump lost only one demographic in 2020 compared to 2016. What was that demographic? … Answer: WHITE MEN! How did liberal activists pull off that?”
On Wednesday, Coulter wrote a piece called “Dinesh’s Stupid Movie,” referring to 2,000 Mules, the latest film from far right pundit Dinesh D’Souza. This one adds to pile of incoherent voter fraud nonsense by misrepresenting geotracking data, supposedly identifying the routes of liberal activists delivering multiple ballots to drop boxes in 2020, and arriving at unsupported, batty conclusions. It’s been so roundly debunked that not even Fox News is buying it. Bill Barr even used it as a punchline in his Jan. 6 committee testimony, enraging Steve Bannon.
“The movie tells Trump diehards (a dwindling crowd) that their man probably DID win the 2020 election!” she writes. She then further debunks his sloppy reasoning, pointing out that cellphone tracking “isn’t precise enough to distinguish between liberal activists stuffing drop boxes, and store owners, police officers, delivery men and others who have perfectly legitimate reasons to be within a few yards of the same drop box every day.”
Coulter also argues that Trump lost the election himself, partly because he “blew off the signature promise of his campaign: the wall.” (She seemed to find this genuinely disappointing, in case you were worried you were agreeing too much with Ann Coulter.)
She concludes, “Instead of a 49-state landslide and two decades of peace and prosperity, we’d have gotten a D’Souza conspiracy movie about how the Democrats cheated.”
Coulter didn’t spend the entire column dragging D’Souza. She devoted the opening stretch to reports that Trump was grifting and fleeced his supporters for $250 million with a nonexistent fund to overturn the election, spending the cash on other things, including himself.
