Cupp: ‘Every Time Trump Opens His Mouth,’ He Gets Clinton ‘that Much Closer to the W.H.’

‘Trump is ensuring a Democratic victory’

TAPPER: “Donald Trump last night perhaps redefining what going beyond the pale is, by saying this about the Democratic front-runner, Hillary Clinton.”

TRUMP: “She was going to beat Obama. I don't know who would be worse. I don't know. How does it get worse? But she was going to beat, she was favored to win, and she got schlonged, she lost. I mean, she lost.”

TAPPER: “I want to talk about Trump and 2016 race with former press secretary for President Obama's reelection campaign, Ben LaBolt, and CNN political commentator, S.E. Cupp. S.E., Trump says that she got schlonged. Thoughts?”
CUPP: “Well, my parents were so proud, but I'm talking today about getting schlonged and scatological humor, really classy stuff. Look, what's so frustrating for conservatives like me, who actually want to win the White House, is that today, Hillary Clinton was named the worst ethics violator of 2015 by a government watchdog agency. She's got a long list of failed policies from the Russian reset to the Libyan collapse. The word most people use to describe her is liar. And yet, yet, every time Donald Trump opens his mouth, he gets her that much closer to the White House. So, I know people love the entertainment factor of a guy who literally has no filter, but when it comes time for the nominating process and time for a general election, Trump is ensuring a Democratic victory. So, you're welcome.”
