Watch: CNN conservative S.E Cupp reveals how Trump is prepping for 'rectal exam' from House Democrats
Election '18

In the immediate aftermath of the election, President Donald Trump was predictably petty and given to lashing out, conservative CNN host S.E. Cupp on Saturday.

But, in the last few days, Trump appears to be trying something different, she said, by praising Democrats and expressing regret about how he handled Veteran's Day festivities.

"Is Trump 2.0 softening in defeat?" she asked. "Or is he just taking a short time-out from the usual fire and fury?"

Cupp said we'll soon see what Trump has left in the tank, as "governing is hard work," especially with Democrats taking control of the House of Representatives.

Trump may be trying to strike a less defiant post to dampen the political attacks headed his way, she suggested.

"It's about to get harder without Republicans controlling all the levers his three-hour workday is about to go bye-bye," she said. "With Democrats retaking the House, the next two years will be the equivalent of a rectal exam for Trump and there's little he can do about it."
