CNN news host Anderson Cooper did not flinch when a guest used an offensive expletive in referring to Republican nominee Donald Trump. Appearing on CCN last night was Liz Mair
, a media adviser, political consultant, communications expert, who owns an eponymous public relations firm. On her Twitter account, she notes that she served as a communications advisor to Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, presidential candidate Carly Fiorina and former Texas Gov. Rick Perry.
After providing some play by play analysis of the current situation of the Republicans, near the end of the interview she proceeded to describe Trump’s tactics in an offensive manner. When Cooper asked, “Have you lost any hope that the GOP can rein Trump in?” Mair answered, “I lost all hope of that, probably seven, eight months ago, quite candidly. His message is being a loudmouthed dick, basically, and going out there and offending people and then engaging in a bunch of airing of grievances.’”
Cooper did not remonstrate her for the remark.
Media reports about Trump have some seeing possible bias. For example, some media reports have suggested that Trump had denigrated the memory of U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan, who died 12 years in Iraq defending his men in a car bomb attack. Khizr Khan, the fallen captain's father, has engaged in a series of denunciations of Trump ever since he appeared at the Democratic National Convention last week and suggested that Trump is not familiar with the U.S. Constitution.
