Republican Consultant Liz Mair: Trump a "Loud Mouth Dick"

|

Anti-Trump Republican tweeter Liz Mair appears on CNN in her role as spokeswoman for "Republicans for Johnson/Weld." Mair called Trump a "loud mouth dick." Transcript, via CNN:

ANDERSON COOPER: Liz Mair -- I mean, you're Republican supporting Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate who was going to join me as I said at the top of the next hour along with his running mate, Bill Weld. Have you lost any hope that the GOP can rein Trump in to be more traditional or less more disciplined as a candidate?

LIZ MAIR, SPOKESWOMAN REPUBLICANS FOR JOHNSON-WELD: I lost all hope of that probably seven or eight months ago now, quite candidly. It's amazing to me that anybody is still having a discussion about having some sort of intervention or bringing him back on message.

I think as Errol just said, this is his message. His message is being a loud mouth dick basically, and going out there and offending people and then engaging in a bunch of airing of grievances. That's what he does. He doesn't have another message. He doesn't have anything else that he really wants to convey.

The Republican Party has a message but it's not his message and he has no interest in carrying it. And quite frankly, I think what we're going to continue to see throughout this campaign is we're going to continue to see the Republican nominee basically acting as if he's on a suicide mission and aiming to take the whole rest of the party down with him.

COOPER: So, Liz, when conservatives or Trump supporters say, look, a vote for the libertarian ticket is a vote for Hillary Clinton, you say what?

MAIR: I say those people can't do math and they need to go back to first grade. The reality of the situation is at worst, if you vote for Gary Johnson, what you're doing is splitting your vote between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. And I say at worst because I actually feel pretty bad about anything that would amount to splitting my vote between these two people. They are both terrible, terrible people and I don't want either of them to be president.

But the reality of the situation is at least by voting for Gary Johnson, I am able to do something that more or less accordance with my conscience. I can vote for someone that I philosophically more or less agree with. I can vote for somebody that I'm pretty confident. It's not going to end up wearing an orange jump suit at some point in the next 10 years which is a big question with the other two. And I'm pretty confident that I'm not going to be voting for someone who is going to compromise national security which is, again, a real question with these two.

So, at the end of the day, you know, I do think that those are reasons why you're going to see more and more Republicans taking a close look at the Johnson-Weld ticket. Probably starting in -- oh, I don't know, about 45 minutes, the rate that Donald Trump has been going today.
