Conservative pundits Ann Coulter and Sean Hannity continued their public feud Wednesday, with Ms. Coulter painting the Fox News host as a zealot who “would endorse communism” if President Trump chose to implement it.

Their spat began last week after Ms. Coulter accused Mr. Hannity of censoring her last appearance on his show, cutting out her criticism of Mr. Trump’s relationship with Goldman Sachs and his praise for chief economic adviser Gary Cohn, Goldman’s former president. Mr. Hannity said the prerecorded interview was edited down for time, but Ms. Coulter said it was an act of pro-Trump censorship.

In her column Wednesday, Ms. Coulter suggested Mr. Hannity would follow the president over a cliff.

Sean Hannity, bless his heart, has the zeal of the late Trump convert,” she wrote. “He would endorse communism if Trump decided to implement the policies of ‘The Communist Manifesto.’ (Which the GOP’s health care bill actually does!)

“On his show last Thursday, he tried to get me to defend Trump’s ‘rich person’ remarks about Cohn,” she continued. “I wish you could see the segment, but, unfortunately, Hannity decided no one would ever see it — NOT, I hasten to add, because he would ever censor criticism of Trump, but simply because he ran out of time.”

Ms. Coulter said Mr. Trump’s early supporters like herself “know how to party responsibly,” unlike Mr. Hannity.

“The best way we serve the people we admire is to tell them the truth,” she said.

Ms. Coulter said Goldman Sachs executives specialize in earning “obscene salaries” while helping ship U.S. jobs overseas.

“Having pulled off the monumental achievement of getting elected with zero help from Wall Street, President Trump is at risk of throwing it all away,” she argued. “He seems to be turning his White House over not only to liberal Democrats, but to the very type of liberal Democrats he railed against on the campaign trail. It’s like voluntarily getting an AIDS transfusion.”

Mr. Hannity responded to the column Wednesday evening, tweeting: “Ann, u fall in and out of love with Christie Romney Trump and how many others. Frankly you just bore me.”
