CNN’s S.E. Cupp: There’s ‘Bodily Fluids’ on the Rented GOP Tuxedo Trump Wore
Looks like SE Cupp is confused – she was apparently thinking of Jeffrey Toobin …
In perhaps the crudest metaphor of this election season, filthy CNN commentator and Never Trumper Sarah Elizabeth Cupp said this morning on CNN’s new day:
“”Trump wore the Republican Party like a rented tuxedo to come through the choice. . . That tuxedo is in the corner, it’s wrinkled, it’s cigarette butt stains and Body fluids on it. “
John Avlon came in wondering what the people “in the control room” were thinking while Don Lemon said he could hear the people in the control room talking to him through his earphones.
Cupp played it shyly, feigning ignorance of the Lewinsky Echo comment: “I don’t know what you thought, what I meant.” But check out the video. Cupp hesitates and pauses before proceeding with her “body fluid” line. She knew exactly what she was saying.
Don Lemon tried to save her: “She speaks of sweat stains.” Cupp decided on the lifeline: “It was sweaty.”
Deconstructing Cupp’s disgusting allegory, she presumably said Donald Trump fraudulently took on the Republican appearance to win the nomination and election. And it is true that Trump had no history as a Conservative Republican.
But the irony is that after serving as perhaps the most conservative president in office, Trump has ruled for nearly a century.
Never Trumper SE Cupp, who dropped gross metaphors about body fluids on CNN on a tuxedo worn by President Trump, was sponsored in part by Cadillac, Chewy, and ADT
Here is the transcript.
DON LEMON: What happened to the Republican Party – the Constitutionalists? . . . What happened? What happened?!
SE CUPP: Trump happened. Years ago I always said: Trump wore the Republican Party like a rented tuxedo to weather the election. And here we are with the dry cleaning bill.
That tuxedo is in the corner, it’s wrinkled, it’s cigarette butt stains and [pauses] You know, um Body fluids on it. And the Republican Party [John Avlon bursts into laughter] need to figure out what to do with the rented tuxedo. You know they let him wear it for four years –
JOHN AVLON: I can hear the people in the control room –
CUPP: I don’t know what you thought.
LEMON: I can hear people talking in the control room through the earphones. . . She speaks of sweat stains in the armpits.
CUPP: It was sweaty!
