Ann Coulter once said she'd "walk across glass" for Donald Trump and that her "worship for him is like the people of North Korea worship their Dear Leader—blind loyalty." But the ultra-conservative pundit may be slipping on a pair of sneakers before her next stroll among the shards, based on a new interview with the Daily Caller in which she admits she's worried that Trump critics were right—sort of. Coulter has identified herself as a single-issue voter who was all in for Trump's plan to build a wall along the Mexican border, and she tells the site she's "not very happy" with what's been going on on that front. "If he doesn't keep his promises, I'm out," she says. "Everyone who voted for him knew his personality was grotesque, it was the issues."

Coulter, who has been tweeting recently about her wall and illegal immigration worries, wonders where the "bull in the china shop we wanted" wandered off to, saying the "miracle" Trump was America's "last shot" at erecting the wall. Other revelations: She thinks Trump hiring his kids is "the one fascist thing he's done," calls members of Congress "swine," and says the American people should start sending Speaker Paul Ryan bricks "to indicate how much we want the wall." She also thinks "true" Trump supporters are "petrified" right about now. Still, Coulter says she hasn't completely jumped off the Trump train, noting she thinks the chance to save America now hovers somewhere between 10% and 90% (she was at the 90% mark on election night). "My fingers are still crossed," she says. "But boy, things don't look good." Her interview with the Daily Caller here. (She's not happy with Berkeley, either.)
