WATCH: SE Cupp Says ‘You Had There a Man Who’s Clearly Not Okay, and a President Who’s Willing to Exploit That’


Video of artist Kanye West’s Oval Office meeting with President Donald Trump began to make the rounds on social media and on cable news programs Thursday afternoon. While many found the footage entertaining, not everyone is laughing.

CNN host, conservative political commentator and writer S.E. Cupp is one of those people.

While she agreed that some of the statements made by West were funny, she raised questions about mental illness and exploitation. In a discussion with fellow CNN personnel, Cupp stated:

“All jokes aside, I thought that was really… sad. I think you had there a man who’s clearly not okay, and a President who’s willing to exploit that.”

“And worse, to exploit that under the auspices of race relations and Black communities, joblessness, mental health…all the things that ended up in this bucket of issues that were sort of addressed in this free for all. I don’t know that any of them were very well served by this circus.”

Watch her remarks here.

Cupp is not alone in her criticisms or concerns.

Although not everyone cut West any slack when they acknowledged he might be having a manic episode.
