Republican strategist Liz Mair gave CNN host Anderson Cooper a run for his money on Wednesday when she went completely off script and called Donald Trump a “loudmouth dick” on live television.
Cooper asked Mair, who made a name for herself when she resigned from Scott Walker’s failed presidential campaign after only one day, if she had “lost any hope that the GOP can rein Trump in?”
Although she is known for being a straight shooter, Mair’s answer was obviously much more honest and direct than the CNN host had been anticipating.
According to Mair, she lost hope many months ago. She went on to explain that there was one simple reason that no efforts to “rein Trump in” would ever be successful. And this would be where all hell broke loose.
This is his message. His message is being a loudmouthed dick, basically, and going out there and offending people and then engaging in an airing of grievances.
Cooper did his best to pretend that he hadn’t heard her and to keep the segment rolling along like nothing had happened. Although it was surely the worst nightmare of a producer and TV host, it was definitely the best thing to happen on the evening news tonight.
Mair made it clear that she had no remorse for her actions by taking to Twitter shortly after the interview to flaunt her pride in a post, complete with #sorrynotsorry hashtag.
Although Mair may not be invited back to CNN anytime soon it certainly is refreshing to see at least a few Republicans voicing their opposition to Donald Trump and his sideshow circus of a campaign. It’s a shame more conservatives don’t have the balls to stand up to the billionaire bully and his bigoted policies. Mair may not have much of a future in television after this, but at least she will have her integrity and self-respect which is more than most Republican lawmakers have going for them at the moment.
