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.

During a panel discussion on Donald Trump's call for an investigation of Joe Biden's son Hunter over his Ukraine dealings, an "AM Joy" guest said if Congress is going to investigate politician's kids why not start with Ivanka Trump and her brothers Don Jr. and Eric.

Speaking with MSNBC host Joy Reid, Intercept columnist Mehdi Hasan called out President Donald Trump for his "brazenness" going after the former vice president's son.

"There's so much to say about this story, as for the Ukrainian denials, what are they going to do, come out and say, 'Yes, Donald Trump did pressure our president eight times in a single phone call'? It's absurd." Hasan began.

Tapper smacks Mnuchin with Trump kids’ international business deals after attack on Biden son

Published

on

In a fairly contentious interview with Steve Mnuchin, CNN host Jake Tapper pointed out how Donald Trump's children -- Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric -- have been using their father's name to swing international deals after the Treasury secretary accused former Vice President Joe Biden's son of doing the same.

Mnuchin first dismissed reporting by the Washington Post and the conservative Wall Street Journal that Donald Trump was withholding Ukraine funding in an effort to get dirt on Biden and his son -- saying neither newspaper could be trusted -- he then complained to the CNN host about having to spend seven and a half minutes talking about Trump's Ukraine scandal.

Will Trump peacefully vacate the Oval Office if he loses the presidential election in 2020? A lesson from 1800

Published

on

As primary season heats up in the United States, the Democrats are anxiously debating the best path to unseat Donald Trump in 2020. But the question of how to beat Trump is perhaps less urgent than the issue of whether he will accept defeat.

Trump has already questioned his loss of the 2016 popular vote with baseless accusations of voter fraud. He has also repeatedly toyed with the idea of extending his presidency beyond the eight-year limit enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, even trumpeting Jerry Falwell Jr.’s assertion that his first term be extended by two years to compensate for the Russia investigation. Perhaps most ominously, Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen warned while testifying before the House Oversight Committee in February 2019:
