Never Trumper Mary Matalin Praises Trump

Mary Matalin actually joined the Libertarian Party in response to Trump’s nomination; now she calls his performance “stunning.”

Mary Matalin seemed to hate Donald Trump during his campaign. Now she extolls him as an amazing and transformative President. She says that other people who might have talked better on conservative principles would not have accomplished as much because they didn’t believe it was possible to implement their policies. Trump has refused to believe that anything is impossible!

By the way, here’s Matalin when she was against Trump but was one of the few who knew he was going to win. (You’ll also notice the media was setting up the Russia smear.)

Political consultant Mary Matalin praised President Trump as “a great overall president,” calling his job performance “stunning” and adding that she can “die happy now.”


I always thought, as Reagan did, that libertarianism was central to conservatism. I have the same philosophy and I support the same policies. I just thought, at the time, it had nothing to do with Trump, whom I think is doing a great job. It’s just that I didn’t see those principles and policies being reflected in the majorities that we kept electing,” Matalin told PJM in an exclusive interview at the recent Conservative Political Action Conference.


Matalin, a veteran Republican strategist, said she’s specifically pleased with Trump’s “fabulous” leadership on tax reform and his can-do attitude toward public policy.

“I think he’s stunning; he’s a paradigmatic shift because, for him, I think, it’s an isolated paradigm shift. I don’t think anybody else can do it because everybody else who thinks they know about politics impedes their own forward motion by saying it can’t be done. He doesn’t have that gene –everything can be done,” she said.

“Everything is possible, and guess what? He has proved that it is. Do you know how many years, decades, I worked on tax reform? He did it like that, changing people’s lives. Do you know how long we all ran against Obamacare? …The less reported is the most significant for the economy … regulatory relief,” she added.

Matalin said Trump’s regulatory relief agenda has given hope back to the business community, young families and those preparing for retirement.

“I say this from the perspective of being in a blue city in a red state for 10 years – New Orleans and Louisiana. He’s given people back hope, I mean people really, small-business people or young families or retiring people, in our DNA is always the potential to be better, to strive for something,” she said.
