Political consultant Liz Mair, currently serving as a spokesperson for a Republican group that supports Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson, didn’t mince her recent words about GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, reducing her opinion of him to a choice four-letter word.
CNN’s Anderson Cooper asked Mair on Wednesday if she’s “lost hope that the GOP can reign Trump in to be more traditional, or at least more disciplined?” She had no optimism.
“I lost all hope of that probably seven, eight months ago now, quite candidly. It’s amazing, to me, that anybody’s still having a discussion about having some sort of an intervention or bringing him back on message,” Mair replied. “I think this is his message. His message is being a loud-mouthed d—, basically, and going out there and offending people and then engaging in a bunch of airing of grievances.”
It doesn’t appear to be a slip of the tongue by Mair. After her appearance, Mair tweeted: “Yes, I just said ‘d—‘ live on @CNN. #sorrynotsorry.”
There was no contrition from Mair on Thursday morning, where she tweeted out a similar sentiment about the Republican nominee for president.
Trump’s camp did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.
