Mary Matalin: Pope Francis Just Gave Donald Trump ‘A Big, Fat, Wet Kiss’

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.”
