Award-winning journalist and political commentator Mike Barnicle called former House Speaker Newt Gingrich a “delusional loser” Thursday during a discussion on MSNBC’s Morning Joe.

Gingrich announced on Twitter and Facebook that he would run for president in 2012.

“He is a delusional loser with an intellectual chip on his shoulder,” Barnicle said. “He is just ridiculous, his candidacy is ridiculous.”

Barnicle later added that Gingrich has been one of the most divisive figures on the public stage.
