Newt’s doing the happy dance

Joe Scarborough & Newt Gingrich at The Richmond Forum

This fucking weasel. Via Mediaite:

Newt Gingrich just admitted that President Donald Trump has a tendency to muddle the details a bit, telling ABC’s Powerhouse Politics on Wednesday that Trump “often says things you can catch him on.” He also expressed some doubt that POTUS will change any time soon.

“They both have a tendency to say general directions that are powerful with details that are dubious,” Gingrich told hosts Jonathan Karl and Rick Klein, comparing his truth-stretching to former Republican Ronald Reagan’s. He added, though, “I’m less sanguine than I was year ago that [Trump] is going to change because he basically emphasizes his strengths and ignores his weaknesses rather than trying to fix [them].”

Then later in the interview that hit on space, the future of the GOP and of course the midterms, Gingrich noted that Trump’s “impact in the Republican party is astonishing,” and stressed that Trump was not essentially a conservative at all.

“Trump is not essentially a conservative. Trump is an anti-liberal. They’re not the same phenomenon. But he may be the most effective uprooter of liberalism in my lifetime,” Gingrich told the ABC hosts, before moving to other topics, including the praise of Vice President Mike Pence for chairing the National Space Council.

One thought on “Newt’s doing the happy dance

  1. If you asked him, Gingrich couldn’t define what a “liberal” was except to say that “I’d know one if I saw one.”
    Liberalism was killed off years ago by neo-liberalism, which apparently Newt doesn’t know.

    Here’s a question for Newt which he’d probably lie about anyway; why has the price of a barrel of oil increased by $5.00 since last Friday?
    Oil closed at $68.08 last Thursday and today it’s at $73.10 and going higher. Why?

    Didn’t OPEC agree to increase its output by 1 million barrels per day?
    Shouldn’t that cause the price of oil to decline?

    Here’s the rest of the story.

    Netanyahu talked Trump into sanctioning the Iranian oil industry, because Bibi is at war with Iran.
    That will result in a 1 million barrel per day decline in Iranian production.

    So once again as the oligarchs make a fortune on higher oil prices (oil is fungible), the common folks in the US and Iran will suffer the effects of a shrinking wallet.

    The Republicans lie both by omission and commission.
