S.E. Cupp: ‘It’s Not Dog Whistle Politics’ with Trump, ‘It’s a Dog Scream’

‘I don’t think they’re trying to hide it at all — and I firmly believe Donald Trump is responsible for setting the tone at his rallies’

CUPP: "I don’t think it’s a dog whistle, I think it’s a dog scream. I don’t think they’re trying to hide it at all. And I firmly believe Donald Trump is responsible for setting the tone at his rallies. But even if you think Donald Trump isn’t totally to blame or there’s blame to go around, I think it’s inarguable that Donald Trump is an incredibly divisive person. Whether that’s his fault or, you know, the environment or the — President Obama’s, you know, creation, it doesn’t really matter at this point. Here’s where we are. And what a leader does with an angry electorate is the real test. I think Obama has met an angry electorate and dismissed a lot of the fears. He’s been a little condescending. I think Trump is meeting that anger with more anger. And I don’t really think that that’s creating an environment to elect a leader to bring the country together. He talks about unifying. I think that’s a joke."
