Thursday on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” Republican political consultant Mary Matalin reacted to Pope Francis’ remarks about GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump and explained while she understood what the Pope was saying, he just helped Trump by making him a victim.
Matalin said, “I’m a Catholic and I know what the Pope is saying and he should stay out of politics because he just gave —he gave a big fat wet kiss to Trump, whether he meant to or not. I mean every time Trump becomes the victim then whoever is attacking him — it’s bad on them — bad on him. But I know what the Pope was saying, he just shouldn’t say it. And also the Vatican has walls and such. And I say that — I love the Pope. I’m in Rome all the time. But he should just needs to stay out of politics.”
