Former GOP House speaker Newt Gingrich has lashed out at House speaker Nancy Pelosi calling her the ‘most destructive speaker’ in history.
Gingrich, who was the 50th Speaker of the United States House of Representatives from 1995 to 1999, spoke further Fox news to Laura Ingraham on Tuesday night.
Ingraham asked Gingrich to explain his position on Pelosi: “You said that Nancy Pelosi is the most destructive speaker ever. Really fast, why? she asked.
Newt Gingrich denounced Nancy Pelosi as “the most dangerous House speaker we have probably had in American history.”
“First, she continues to violate the constitution,” Gingrich claimed.
The final deposition is just a simple example. She is using her power ruthlessly and she has truly enacted the most radical positions ever taken by any American speaker, including doing away with mother and father and uncle and aunt and son and daughter as words, literally trying every gender reference out of the House. of Representatives. I think she is very dangerous. ‘
“But she’s a staunchly practicing Catholic, so you can’t criticize her,” Ingraham replied, tongue firmly on her cheek.
Gingrich made similar claims during another interview on Fox over the weekend, where he elaborated on his take on Pelosi.
Gingrich, who chaired the House of Representatives between 1995 and 1999, described Pelosi as ‘dangerous’ because he ‘used power ruthlessly’
“She lives in an enclave that is guarded in San Francisco,” Gingrich said.
‘She’s surrounded by left-wing crazy tunes who think it’s okay to live in a city where … there’s a map you can visit on the internet where you can see where the feces were. They don’t differentiate between dog and human, but they will show you how much stool counts that day in San Francisco. ‘
“This is the same problem with Vice President Kamala Harris,” Gingrich continued.
They come from the center of leftist madness, and all their friends at the local country club or all their friends when they go to a cocktail party think this craziness makes sense.
Nancy Pelosi, 80, was recently re-elected for a fourth term as Speaker of the House
‘Pelosi has been in politics for so long that she operates like a true machine politician of the old order. And she doesn’t mind misusing power. She doesn’t mind running over people … she’s so willing to break the rules and, frankly, just say things that aren’t true at all, ‘Gingrich said in a bitter outburst.
Gingrich, a former Republican congressman in Georgia, was first elected to the House in 1978. In 1995, he took over as Speaker of the House, ending a long democratic monopoly.
He eventually quit in 1999 after a Congressional ethics inquiry found that he had lied about violating tax laws.
Ultimately, he was the very first Speaker to be punished by the Chamber for ethical violations.
Gingrich finally resigned in 1999 after it became clear that he could not win another term as a speaker.
Pelosi, meanwhile, has been instrumental in securing a second impeachment of former President Donald Trump.
Speaking last week, she justified the trial by saying it would be ‘detrimental to unity’ to forget that ‘people died here on January 6, the attempt to undermine our election, to undermine our democracy, to to dishonor our constitution ‘.
Republicans have criticized the accusation for failing to adhere to Biden’s “ unity theme. ”
But Pelosi said, “Joe Biden said it beautifully,” If you’re going to unite, remember it. ”
She added, ‘Just because he’s gone now, thank goodness, doesn’t tell a president’ do whatever you want in the last months of your government. ‘
“People think we should be nice and forget that people died here, that the then president had to undermine our election, undermine our democracy, dishonor our constitution.”
Five people, including a Capitol policeman, died in the chaos, and the House charged the outgoing president a week later and ten Republicans joined all Democrats in support.
However, it can all come to nothing. A majority of Republicans voted on Tuesday that Donald Trump’s second impeachment is unconstitutional, a sign that the former president is likely to be acquitted in his upcoming trial beginning Feb. 8.
