Ana Navarro opens up a can of whoop ass on Newt ‘open marriage’ Gingrich over his ‘sex obsession’ rant

Published

on

GOP consultant Ana Navarro had a few things to say on CNN about former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s now famous meltdown on the Kelly File Tuesday night.

None of them good things about the Trump supporter.

After Trump backer Scottie Nell Hughes attempted to say the conversation should be about Gingrich discussing Hillary Clinton’s “pay for play speeches,” Navarro questioned the wisdom of using Gingrich in any capacity as a spokesperson considering his sordid history.

After host Anderson Cooper called Gingrich’s “sex obsession” tirade “ironic,” Navarro corrected him.

“I think the word you were looking for was ‘hypocritical,'” Navarro began. “Remember Newt Gingrich’s wife? When he was running in 2012, told all of us, told the media the media, said it to the camera. Newt Gingrich offered her the choice between an open marriage or a divorce. So maybe, just maybe, if all of that baggage is on your shoulders, maybe you shouldn’t be the surrogate out there wagging your finger and accusing the woman who was reporting on sexual assault — let me explain it slowly — sexual assault and sex are two things. One is unwanted. One is wanted. So maybe they need to understand that to begin with.”

“Let us not confuse sexual assault and sex,” she continued. “And if you are going to get a surrogate to speak on it, and wag his finger on national TV, maybe, just maybe, go find the Pope or somebody that’s been on his knees in a chapel for the last 20 years. Not Newt Gingrich.”
