Conservative CNN commentator S.E. Cupp on Thursday suggested the rising clout of Fox Newsconspiracy theory-peddling personality Tucker Carlson may be motivating Donald Trump to jump into the media industry.
“Perhaps Trump is launching a new media company because, let’s face it, Tucker Carlson has usurped him in prominence and influence on Fox,” Cupp wrote on Twitter, promoting her “Unfiltered” segment on the same theme.
Cupp, in her monologue on CNN, noted that the ex-president’s ability to attack enemies and court publicity has been “severely limited” since he was booted from social media platforms following his incitement of the deadly U.S. Capitol riot on Jan. 6.
But there is good news for MAGA fans who’ve missed the “nasty mudslinging,” lies and lunacy, said Cupp, a longtime Trump critic. The social media platform proposed as part of the Trump Media and Technology Group will allow him to “let it rip in the way he clearly misses.”
Watch Cupp’s commentary above.
