On Monday, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said that he believes Kamala Harris is probably the “worst vice president in American history.”

That would put her in some questionable company – with the likes of Spiro Agnew, Dick Cheney, and ironically, Joe Biden.

Gingrich made his comments on Fox News’ “Hannity.”

Gingrich Calls Harris An ‘Embarrassment’

“I think she actually accomplished something very historic,” Gingrich told host Sean Hannity. “She got CNN, historically the strongest supporter of liberal Democrats, to run an entire story pointing out that the president’s team and the vice president’s team are fighting internally, in a very ferocious way.”

“I’ve never seen CNN do anything that would be harmful to Joe Biden,” Gingrich observed. “This story was devastating, and I think it starts with a simple fact. Biden’s at 38 percent approval. She’s at 28 percent approval. Powerful people wake up in the morning. They go, ‘It can’t be me. So I wonder who’s doing this?’ So the Biden people say it’s all Harris’s fault. The Harris people say, you know, if only he was using her correctly.”

Gingrich was referring to this piece by CNN, which describes dysfunction, incompetence, in-fighting, and more in the White House.

Gingrich said to expect more.

“I think you’re going to see more of this kind of backbiting because the truth is she hasn’t accomplished anything,” he said. “I mean, it’s an embarrassment.”

“But then, on the other hand, she’s working with Joe Biden, who has accomplished almost nothing, Gingrich added. “And it’s an embarrassment.”

Gingrich said that watching Biden work in any “unscripted environment” was “frightening.”

Gingrich said, “As you point out, just watching him in public in an unscripted environment is a little frightening, frankly, to think that this is the commander-in-chief and to know that our opponents around the planet are watching the same TV coverage.”

“I think this is, having known a fair number of vice presidents, this is an amazing moment for probably the worst vice president in American history,” Gingrich concluded.
