CNN anchor Anderson Cooper didn’t even wince Wednesday night when a female political consultant appeared on his program and called GOP presidential contender Donald Trump “a dick.”
Liz Mair, a consultant and new media advisor, appeared on CNN. Cooper asked if she had any hope that Trump could be reined in the next several months.
Asked about calling the GOP candidate “a dick” on national TV, Mair told The Mirror she had no regrets.
“I lost all hope of that probably six or seven months ago,” she said. “His message is being a loud mouth. I had another word in mind, but ‘dick’ literally did slip out. An accident, but I’ll admit, not one I exactly regret. I think my description was accurate. Maybe next time I’ll use ‘douchecanoe.'”
Mair made waves when Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker hired her as a communications strategist in March of 2015. A day later, she resigned after news surfaced that she had insulted the state of Iowa.
“In other news, I see Iowa is once again embarrassing itself, and the GOP, this morning. Thanks, guys,” she wrote on Twitter. And this: “The sooner we remove Iowa’s frontrunning status, the better off American politics and policy will be.”
In 2008, Mair was Online Communications Director at the Republican National Committee. She has advised both Carly Fiorina and Texas Gov. Rick Perry in their presidential aspirations.
UPDATE: The description Mair originally had in mind for Trump was “overgrown frat-boy.”
