Anti-Catholic attacks on Amy Coney Barrett will help get Trump re-elected

From the Right / S.E. Cupp /

“Trump’s likely RBG replacement, Amy Coney Barrett, is a Catholic extremist with 7 children who does not believe employers should be required to provide healthcare coverage for birth control. She wants the rest of American women to be stuck with her extreme lifestyle.”

That’s a now-deleted tweet from a documentary filmmaker named Arlen ...Read more

The president exploits liberal hypocrisy to justify his stupid decisions

From the Right / S.E. Cupp /

In just the past week, President Trump has made the absolutely asinine decision to hold two indoor rallies at a time when COVID-19 has killed more than 194,000 Americans.

The first, a rally at an XTreme Manufacturing facility in Nevada, packed in 5,600 people, mostly maskless with no social distancing requirements, politics/fromtheright/secupp/s-2412717">Read more

Are we really prepared for Trump’s refusal to accept the election results?

From the Right / S.E. Cupp /

“We have to win the election,” President Trump told a crowd of sometimes mask-less supporters in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, back in August. “[M]ake sure your vote gets counted. Make sure, because the ...Read more

Vote Biden, and make the presidency boring again

From the Right / S.E. Cupp /

I heard a strange rumor recently that there are people out there, far, far away, who don’t spend the majority of their time thinking about politics. Instead of obsessing over tweets, binging on cable news 24/7, and pulling their hair out over the all-caps STATE OF OUR NATION, they’re — ahem — living their lives.

I envy these people. But...Read more

Trump’s convention should worry the left

From the Right / S.E. Cupp /

Will we ever learn?

In the wake of 2016, many on the left, in the media and certainly on blue-check Twitter were caught off guard by Donald Trump’s unfathomable win. I count myself among the surprised.

Over the past four years, however, we’ve seen over and over again that Trump’s appeal wasn’t merely the result of a fluke or an ...Read more

I’m voting for Biden because he’s a good person: Why that matters

From the Right / S.E. Cupp /

On the Democratic National Convention’s second night, Joe Biden’s wife, Jill, took America inside her longtime marriage to the presidential nominee.

These things usually strike me as schmaltzy and inauthentic — pre-packaged montages about political leaders and their families, their personal trials and triumphs, their “normal” lives, ...Read more

The unbelievable, totally believable return of Bill O’Reilly

From the Right / S.E. Cupp /

If we women weren’t already so jaded about the way powerful men are excused for their bad behavior, this might seem totally unbelievable.

My vote for Biden hinges on his veep pick

From the Right / S.E. Cupp /

The job of the vice president hasn’t gotten much respect over the years.

Benjamin Franklin is rumored to have suggested that the title be renamed “His Superfluous Excellency.” Vice President John Nance Garner — aka, “who?” — said the role “is not worth a bucket of warm spit!” Even “Hamilton,” the blockbuster musical, got ...Read more

Will ‘healthy’ schools be traumatic? Learning in buildings this way will be hard for many youngsters to handle

From the Right / S.E. Cupp /

August is usually when we try to get one final vacation in, find fun ways to beat the heat, and take our last licks of summer. But this year, August is different. For those of us who have school-aged children, the potential return to class hangs over us; we count down the hours before the realities of a viral pandemic test us where it matters ...Read more

Kanye needs help, not a public platform

From the Right / S.E. Cupp /

Back in October of 2018, music and fashion mogul Kanye West took a trip to the Oval Office, ostensibly to discuss criminal justice reform with the president. What happened instead was a three-ring circus in front of rolling cameras and ...Read more

No, we shouldn’t cancel ‘Hamilton’

From the Right / S.E. Cupp /

Like thousands and thousands of others, I spent two-and-a-half hours on Friday night watching the streaming version of “Hamilton” on Disney+ with my family for the first time.

I was gobsmacked.

I had a hunch that I’d like it — I’m a fan of most musicals and, until recently, a regular theatergoer. But I surprised even myself. I didn��...Read more

Does Trump still care about his base?

From the Right / S.E. Cupp /

If you’re a white supremacist, racist, or just feeling insecure about your status as a white man in America, the president of the United States sure wants you to know, he’s got your back.

Over the past few weeks, President Trump has stoked racial divisions by making steady, clumsy and unsubtle overtures to his white nationalist supporters. ...Read more
