The GOP is hardly recognizable lately, as Trump reworked it together with his disregard for legislation and order. Conservative political commentator S.E. Cupp spoke to HL about the way forward for the Republican Party.
Despite being impeached twice, encouraging the Jan. 6 insurrection and being neglecting the lives of thousands and thousands of American in the course of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, what was previously the Republican Party has continued to face by Donald Trump. Although he’s now not president, members of Congress and a big portion of Americans are working to make sure his imaginative and prescient for a divisive, hateful and racist America thrive. It was because of this, amongst others, that longtime conservative political commentator S.E. Cupp was open about her resolution to vote for Joe Biden this election cycle. “I don’t know this party. I don’t know these Republicans. This isn’t what drew me to the party,” the CNN host admitted on the HollywoodLife Podcast.
She continued, “I’m drawn to limited government, self-reliance, self-empowerment, lower taxes, small government — that kind of stuff, which seemed normal and empowering to me. And I don’t know what the party stands for right now.” Following the riot on Jan. 6 that noticed a rowdy, weapon-wielding mob storm the Capitol constructing when Congress was in session to certify the election, a number of Republican Congressmen and ladies disassociated themselves from Trump, whereas others have continued to publicly help him on behalf of their constituents.
“We’re supposed to be for Law and Order,” S.E. stated of the previous GOP. “Cloaking it as patriotism or conservatism is just a lie. And I think there are enough good conservatives that see through that, even in Congress, but there’s certainly been a lack of courage to call out people like Marjorie Taylor Greene.” For instance, S.E. defined, the Republican House Conference held a vote on conservative Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney, to take away her from management as a result of she voted to question Donald Trump. In a silent vote, her fellow congresspeople voted to maintain her in management, but when the vote was not silent, S.E. doesn’t imagine that may have been the case. “If the vote had not been silent, I’m not sure it would have gone that way. And that’s really sad and disappointing,” she famous.
Still, the S.E. Cupp: Unfiltered host doesn’t perceive why her fellow conservatives proceed to face by Trump. “Republicans, over the course of his four years, lost the House and the Senate. He didn’t deliver on most of the promises that he pledged. I’m not sure what Republicans thought they got other than tax cuts, which Joe Biden can repeal, and conservative judges, but Joe Biden can appoint liberal judges and I’m sure he will across the country. So, the calculus doesn’t make a lot of sense to me,” S.E. defined. “I think there are members of Congress who are worried that pissing him off is going to imperil their next election…so it’s eye on the prize. But all of this short-term thinking for Republicans is this never ending vicious cycle that is just prolonging the inevitable — which is that there will be no voters left for the Republican Party.”
