Let Them Fight: The #AlwaysTrump MAGA-heads and the Build-the-Wall nativists have gone to war. And it is glorious. (MOLLY JONG-FAST  JANUARY 29, 2019, The Bulwark)

And then the two sides started to go at it.

Mitchell went thermonuclear on Ann Coulter for an inability to compromise her . . . well, whatever it is that made her so eager for both Romney 2012 and Build a Wall 2016: [...]

And then, Mitchell really dropped the hammer: He called Coulter a Democrat. And you'll never guess who jumped up to thumb the like button.Mitchell was so hot and bothered he even took swings at Mike Cernovich and . . . Breitbart?

Charlie Kirk was also extremely triggered by the linear-thinking, fair-weathered, useful idiots who really thought they were signing up to get a wall. He did an Instagram video about how conservatives just can't abandon Trump with a headline "so sick of people stabbing @realdonaldtrump in the back."

Young Charlie also urged people to understand that Trump has been waging the entire fight by himself, because he is beset on all sides by enemies or the Deep State or whatever. And even the Daily Caller couldn't take it. 

The weird undercurrent in all of this is that, like courtiers serving under an egomaniacal monarch, the sycophants seemed almost pleased to have a chance to differentiate themselves from other loyalists in the eyes of the king. Newt Gingrich, for instance, rushed into a Fox studio to assure the president that he should never listen to irrelevant people like Ann Coulter because he should only listen to highly relevant people such as Newt Gingrich.
