In 92Y series "Can This Generation Revive the GOP", S.E. Cupp sits alongside Tim Miller and Peter Hamby to talk about Trump, politics, policies, and rhetorics
While acknowledging that the rhetoric on Trump is overfeed and there is a hysteria around everything he does, S.E., says "I worry about the policy, but I worry just as much about the rhetoric. Think it is corrosive. It’s toxic"
When she says that I see where she is coming from. It’s not much different than Romney’s opEd at Washington Post earlier this year about character of the president. Speaking out against things you don't agree with is healthy in a democracy. Remember Dr Martin Luther King's response to Stokely Carmichael's Black power speech at the Mississippi's March against fear? MLK regarded Carmichael's speech as unwise and rejected it as it hurt the cause and had potential to derail the Civil rights movement. What we need is more Dr.Kings within every organization, lobby group and political party including the GOP to reflect upon ourselves. S.E. Cupp is doing exactly that.
S.E. expected that post 2016 elections, Republican party would steer Trump to it’s agenda. Instead it is Trump who became the center of gravity he steered the party toward his impulses and urges. She rightfully says that she won’t call Trump's ideas an agenda. Aptly calls it impulses and urges. As a traditional conservative I can feel that it is a big deal for her
