Newt Gingrich was trying to defend Donald Trump when he went a little off script. He’s very sorry. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
"I love that Trump referred to the former Speaker of the House as "someone!"
Anyway, the tweet wasn't good enough for Comrade Trump and he evidently scolded Newt about it, which forced Gingrich to post an apology video on Twitter.
It appears Newt was forced to use baby talk as part of his penance.
Newt said, "I want to report that I made a big boo-boo."
Poor baby. Kiss the boo-boo, Newt. Kiss it!
He continued, "I spoke this morning with President-elect Donald Trump, and he reminded me: He likes draining the swamp. I mischaracterized it the other day…He even describes it as DTS"
OMG, WTF, LOL, ROTFL, IOKIYAR and now DTS!
He said, " I goofed. 'Drain the swamp' is in. The alligators should be worried."
It's fundraiser time!
Your kind donations of any amount will help get our new projects off the ground and keep us going strong for years to come. YOU pay for server space so if a video is taken down elsewhere, it's still here. That space costs money. You "build the wall" that keeps what Trump really said, out there for all to see. It matters in the Era of Corporate Media and an administration that cares nothing about ethics.
You directly protect honest accountability for Trump AND the media with your donation. Thank you.”*
