During a discussion of Melania Trump, who is scheduled to speak at the Republican Nation Convention Monday night, Newt Gingrich pointed out to Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren that Donald Trump’s wife is not only very hot, but also from a place that is not here.
Tomorrow, Donald Trump will supposedly announce our country’s future Vice President. Currently, all signs seem to point to the notoriously homophobic governor of Indiana, Mike Pence. And it is almost certainly going to be Mike Pence. But, Mr. Trump, I beg of you: If you’re going to choose a monster, and not a member of your family, please choose Newt Gingrich.
Conservative virtual reality enthusiast Newt Gingrich is reportedly high on Donald Trump’s list of running mate picks. This week, he flew to Indiana for an impromptu meeting with the presumptive Republican nominee. But a few months ago, Newt was eyeing the prime cut of beef a l’orange that’s poised to lead his party with the skepticism of a child who isn’t sure he wanted to take a bite.
Late Wednesday night, The New York Times published a tentative schedule for speakers at next week’s Republican National Convention that included former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow, UFC President Dana White, Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel, Donald Trump’s wife Melania and all of his adult children.
According to Bloomberg, Donald Trump doesn’t plan to announce his vice presidential pick until Friday, but the presumptive Republican nominee strongly hinted that both Jason Bourne and John Wick are in the running on Tuesday, telling The Wall Street Journal he’s looking for a “fighter skilled in hand-to-hand combat.”
For months, Donald Trump has been attempting to discount as racist the federal judge overseeing two class-action lawsuits against Trump University. Former House speaker Newt Gingrich, who has otherwise been very supportive of Trump, called the presumptive Republican nominee’s most recent attacks on the judge “one of the worst mistakes Trump has made. I think it’s inexcusable.”
Newt Gingrich is puzzled by a new device he owns — the video-playing cellular telephone.
Newton Leroy Gingrich, a former college professor who co-writes speculative novels about alternative versions of history, has just coauthored the most momentous counterfactual of his career. Forget wondering what would have happened if the Confederates had won at Gettysburg, or if the United States had fought Imperial Japan and left Hitler alone: What if the two most absurd and most widely loathed candidates in last year's Republican presidential primaries had joined forces to win the White House?
If you were wondering how Parks and Recreation could top cameos from Joe Biden and John McCain, here's your answer: Newt Gingrich will make a guest appearance on the show sometimes later this season. What's more, the the casting was a complete coincidence. As the Indianapolis Star reports, the Parks and Recs crew were filming in the St. Elmo Steak House in Indianapolis when the former presidential candidate and Speaker of the House strolled in for lunch.
On tonight's Real Time, Bill Maher closed with rant about the state of our country's political discourse. "The only politics we understand is scandal," he said, "and the only scandal we understand is sex." Maher recounted many politicians who are not held accountable for their lies until those lies involve sex. It all boils down to the very problematic way we talk about both politics and sex in the United States.
On tonight's Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert told tales from the weekend he spent with the NRA at their annual meeting. While Mitt Romney was a wee bit out of place, Newt Gingrich was right at home, especially when he theorized that the right to bear arms had been handed down by God and that it is his hope that everyone on the planet can be armed. One day, Newt, one day.
Now that Mitt Romney has basically sealed the Republican nomination, you'd think the other candidates might concede defeat and offer their support. And indeed, Newt Gingrich is open about the fact that he's not going to be the Republican candidate — but that doesn't mean he's going to stop campaigning.
On Sunday, Bill Kristol, chronically incorrect steward of his daddy's
magazine movement, dismissed liberals' and black activists' outraged response to the Trayvon Martin killing as "just demagoguery... mostly on the side of those who want to indict the whole society for this death." The following day, Rush Limbaugh said the response was "doing more harm to the black community than anything else." How blessed the black community must feel to have their best interests overseen by the living embodiment of everything wrong with white people.
As John Edwards learned the hard way, the camera is always on. It was certainly on in the bowels of Fox News' dark tower last November as failed presidential candidate Newt Gingrich's icy wife-bot Callista prepared him for an interview with Bill O'Reilly. She brushed him like a horse, sprayed him like Cher, and locked down his hair with dead-eyed precision. Then O'Reilly said he looked like Justin Bieber. Burn.
