Their clout has been on display as Trump fights to make good on his signature campaign promise - building a wall on the border with Mexico.
On Thursday night, Coulter began lashing out On Twitter over Trump signing the spending bill to prevent another government shutdown, only to pivot and declare a national emergency on Friday - which he has since done.
"Laura has been great, Laura Ingraham".
"But fundamentally this is about politics of the base, that he needs to shore up his base", Gergen said on CNN.
"What you have in the media right now is obsession", he said. "Look, Sean Hannity has been a terrific, terrific supporter of what I do".
"Rush Limbaugh - I think he's a great guy", Mr. Trump said.
Trump continued down the list with Carlson and Ingraham. "Tucker Carlson has been great".
"They don't decide policy", Mr. Trump said at a press conference Friday at the White House.
Coulter started out by ranting about the president's poor character, saying that the only reason many conservatives could stomach voting for him was to get the border wall built. "The only national emergency is that our president is an idiot". "I haven't spoken to her in way over a year". "I have nothing against her". "They've got blinders on and they've got this prism in which they see Donald Trump". Another was placed to Sean Hannity, the Fox host who regularly talks with the president. "People get what we're doing".
"He's incredibly persuasive and powerful", Cuomo said of Hannity. Coulter, like many others, seems to think this non-emergency emergency is an abuse of presidential power. "He has one of the biggest audiences in the history of the world, this guy is unbelievable".
"He seeks advice from all over the country".
