A conservative host on CNN cannot reach liberal viewers without trumpeting for the ouster of President Donald Trump, but S.E. Cupp does it with a call to "beat him at the ballot box" – the way the U.S. Democracy intended – and not moving to impeach him.
"This president is unfit to lead," she said on CNN's "S.E. Cupp Unfiltered." "He has shown time and time again his utter disdain for democratic process, separation of powers, the law. He's got to go. But not by impeachment."
Cupp was pointing to the political attacks on President Trump from the Mueller report, which concluded there was insufficient evidence to prove a crime but passed the buck to Congress to decide the president's fate on potential impeachment proceedings.
"The reality is without bipartisan support for such a drastic and disruptive maneuver it will only rip us apart even further and that benefits Trump, not America," she said of impeachment. "Beat him at the ballot box.
"Beat him with ideas and policies. Beat him with an agenda that doesn't divide us further, that isn't just designed to piss off half the country or punish people who voted for him."
Cupp said toppling the president using "respect, hope, and optimism" should not be hard.
There has not been much in the way of respect, hope, or optimism for President Trump from his political opposition, particularly with an estimated $35 million Mueller report which features – for those critics – the most memorable conclusion being not "no collusion, no obstruction" but this line: "While this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him."
Ostensibly, for President Trump's opposition: politically guilty because potentially not proven innocent criminally.
