Right-wing pundit Ann Coulter went on a surprisingly vitriolic anti-Trump rant the other day, calling the president a "complete blithering idiot," an "actual retard," and "the most disloyal human God ever created" for his treatment of Jeff Sessions and his failure to build the border wall per his campaign promise.

"Coulter is right," comedian Tim Dillon tweeted in response. "Trump doesn't really care about immigration or the wall, it was just the way to win. He likes winning. You don't live your entire life being a Hollywood star who hangs with the Clintons and Jeffrey Epstein and then decide you actually like people from Ohio."

Which is true. Trump and his handlers understood that rising anti-immigration sentiment in America was a key to winning the presidency, but he never cared about immigration and never had any intention of going out of his way to do anything about it (which is why even his deportation numbers are still below Obama's). Just one of the many ways where the popular narrative about Trump -- the story everyone's telling about him -- differs wildly from the reality.
