Be it their words, weight or looks, TV journalists get a lot of online crap.
On Monday night, CNN political commentator S.E. Cupp was trolled for being transgender. Cupp is obviously not transgender or even contemplating becoming a man.
She ultimately bonded with her accuser.
The Rev. Dr. Logic: I think the biggest unspoken scandal is how CNN & other media hired democrats like @secupp and @amandacarpenter to play conservative on air.
The Rev. Dr. Logic: I mean, you had to know that nobody believe @secupp, a transgender, was really a Republican or conservative.
Cupp played along for a little while.
S.E. CUPP: I’m transitioning.
The Rev. Dr. Logic: “I’ve got to say though, I’m shocked. You look as close to a finished product as can be to me.”
The Rev. Dr. Logic: I seriously don’t get it. I take it that @secupp actually isn’t a transgender person and I got bad info, right?
S.E. CUPP: No, you’re right. I’m totally a dude. Just don’t tell the kid I birthed! Shhh.
The Rev. Dr. Logic: Please don’t take offense if I was wrong. I guess I was wrong. I dislike you for your politics, not for being transgender.
But shockingly, this conversation ends well.
S.E. CUPP: WOW. Thought this was fake, but someone actually convinced I was trans? Thanks sincerely for apologizing. We got somewhere tonight.
S.E. CUPP: Had an incredible convo with @RevDrLogic tonight. We misunderstood each other, but worked it out. Check our feed.
The Rev. Dr. Logic: For real. Followed. My bad on that SE. Now all we have to do is get you off CNN and then we can be besties.
The Rev. Dr. Logic: I apologized like 4 times. I promise to only comment on your politics. Friends?
S.E. CUPP: Totally.
The happy ending, so to speak, wasn’t inevitable.
Early on in the conversation, The Rev. remarked to an online buddy, “Hey lets unite, brother! I stand with the transgender community. @secupp can use my urinal anytime.”
