Newt Gingrich defends sexist meltdown: Women are thanking me for stopping Megyn Kelly’s ‘baloney’

Published

on

It would appear that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich hasn’t spent much time on social media following his meltdown during a Fox News interview with Megyn Kelly on Tuesday night.

After Kelly called Republican nominee Donald Trump a “sexual predator,” Gingrich lost it. During his tirade, Gingrich called Kelly unfair and biased, adding that she doesn’t care about public policy and is “fascinated with sex.”

On Wednesday, MSNBC approached the former House Speaker during a Trump event in D.C. and asked him “What do you say to the Republican women who saw that interview last night and are upset by it?”

Gingrich responded that he had not seen any negative posts from women on Twitter or anywhere.

Instead, he said, “I’ve had a lot of Republican women write me and thank me for standing up to the baloney that is thrown at us by people who excuse Bill Clinton, ignore Bill Clinton, and then explain to us how shocked they are by Donald Trump.”

Gingrich called attention to sexual assault allegations against Clinton during his exchange with Kelly on Tuesday night as well. However, she reminded the Trump surrogate that Bill Clinton is not on the ballot this fall.

Also, Twitter users definitely dragged Gingrich over his comments.

President Donald Trump's psychological problems are getting worse and could be consequential as America faces a potential COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell on Thursday interviewed Dr. Lance Dodes, a former assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

"As you pointed out, Lawrence, this man is about himself. He really is not about the country, he's not about public health," Dr. Dodes said of Trump.

"Although he has already severely damaged the country by being a psychopath or sociopath -- in many ways, he's damaged democracy -- I think people's lives will be lost now," he warned. "Individual lives will be lost because of the way he's mishandling the coronavirus issue."

‘Something really rotten’: Here’s the evidence of extensive voter suppression in Georgia’s notorious 2018 election

Published

on

As the 2020 presidential campaign cycle grinds on, there’s renewed concern about the 21st century’s newest form of warfare: cyber-sabotage of government systems, including elections and online disinformation intended to incite unrest. But as Suppressed: The Fight to Vote, a documentary from Brave New Films, makes clear, partisan voter suppression tactics with 20th-century roots remain and can thwart multitudes of voters from changing their state’s political leaders.

The real story behind Trump’s new lawsuit against the New York Times

Published

on

Wednesday was an ominous day for freedom of the press in this country, and I want to tell you why.

You may have heard or seen that President Trump filed a libel suit against the New York Times. Perhaps you weren’t surprised: the president is known to frequently disparage the Times even as he reads it obsessively. Borrowing a page from what I’ve referred to before as a Mount Rushmore of totalitarians, Robespierre, Hitler, Stalin and Mao, Trump loves to call the press the “enemy of the people.”
