You know things are bad for Donald Trump when even his biggest supporters start pulling away from him.

Ann Coulter supported the real estate mogul so much in his bid to be president that she wrote a book about it. However, now she's calling him a disappointment and "grotesque."

The 55-year-old is a syndicated newspaper columnist and book author and also spends time as a political pundit on TV. In Trump We Trust was her twelfth bestselling book. She was all over television last year promoting Trump and his candidacy.

But so far she's unimpressed at best over the job he has been doing as president. Even on Sunday, before the news was published that he had given classified information to the Russians, she gave an unfavorable opinion of him in an interview.

"Everyone who voted for him knew his personality was grotesque," she claims, but it was the issues that drew her into being a supporter. But looking at those same issues now, "Boy, things don't look good."

"I'm not very happy with what has happened so far," Coulter continued. "I guess we have to try to push him to keep his promises. But ... if he doesn't keep his promises, I'm out."

"Where is the great negotiation?" She questioned. "That budget the Republicans pushed through was like a practical joke ... Did we win anything?"

She sees the new administration as a "disaster so far" and calls out specifically the non-building of the promised wall that was to be constructed along the Mexican border. She's calling out everyone to send bricks to Paul Ryan, presumedly to give them a head start on that wall.

Coulter also isn't much of a fan of the President's nepotism after he put daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner to work: "American's don't like that; I don't like that. That's the one fascist thing he's done. Hiring his kids."

She compared her time as a Trump supporter to being told you have six days to get from Chicago to Los Angeles but spending the first three days traveling to New York instead.

"He can still turn around and get us to L.A. In three days, but I'm a little nervous," she said. "If we just keep going to New York ... again, I'll say we had no choice, but the Trump-haters were right ... it's a nightmare. I can't even contemplate that. Right now I'm still rooting for him to turn around and take us toward L.A."

Despite these feelings, the conservative journalist says she has no regrets about supporting Trump and is not apologizing. She still has faith in "Trumpism" and believes much of the fault lies with the Republican Congress for moving too slowly.
