S.E. Cupp Chokes Up over SCOTUS Ruling, Tells GOP to Accept or ‘Become Relics’

Conservative commentator S.E. Cupp choked back tears Friday morning while reacting to the Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage across all 50 states.

Cupp’s voice repeatedly cracked with emotion as she explained her long history as a minority Republican fighting for same-sex marriage, and then pleaded with her party to “reconcile with the fact that we are going to become relics if we don’t get to where these people are.” She added: “It’s really time for the party politics to shift on this.”

“I hope seeing some of the faces of these people, who’ve fought for so long for very little — really just for recognition of their unions, their monogamous unions,” she continued. “I really hope this will change some minds in my party.”

“This is our future,” she concluded. “You don’t have to like it, you don’t have to embrace it, but you have to accept it.”
