S.E. Cupp Lights Up Maria Bartiromo: ‘An Obsequious, Sycophantic Trump-Supporting Talking Head’


S.E. Cupp absolutely laced into rival anchor Maria Bartiromo of Fox Business on Monday night.

During Monday’s Unfiltered on HLN, Cupp blasted Bartiromo over what she deems to be her metamorphosis from elite business reporter to shill for President Donald Trump.

“Maria Bartiromo, once dubbed CNBC’s ‘Money Honey’ renowned for her trailblazing financial reporting, is now an obsequious, sycophantic, Trump-supporting talking head like many of her colleagues at Fox News and Fox Business,” Cupp said.

Later in the segment, Cupp posed the question of guest Andrew Kirell — a senior editor at the Daily Beast who recently co-authored a scathing article on Bartiromo — whether Bartiromo’s transformation was self-imposed or part of a corporate mandate?

“Did you get any indication of whether Fox kind of gave her or anyone else a mandate like, ‘This is the direction we’re going. Get on board.’ Or do you think she decided to take it upon herself to support Pizza-gate?” Cupp asked.

Kirell reported that Fox News sources told him Bartiromo was a “skilled chameleon.”
