Former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich spoke out this week to eviscerate the current Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), going so far as to say that she is the “most destructive speaker in history.”

Gingrich Lets Loose On Pelosi

Gingrich said this during an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham, who asked him, “You said Nancy Pelosi is the most destructive speaker ever. Really quickly, why?”

“First off, she keeps violating the Constitution,” Gingrich replied, according to Daily Mail. “The latest impeachment is just a simple example.”

“She uses her power ruthlessly and she has really pushed through the most radical positions ever taken by an American Speaker, including abolishing mother and father and uncle and aunt and son and daughter as words, literally trying to strip out any gender reference from the House of Representatives,” he added. “I think she’s very dangerous.”

Ingraham sarcastically responded by saying, “But she is an ardent practicing Catholic, so you cannot criticize her.”

Gingrich Criticized Pelosi Days Before 

This came two days after Gingrich made similar comments about Pelosi in a separate Fox News interview.

“She lives in an enclave that is guarded in San Francisco,” Gingrich explained. “She is surrounded by left-wing looney tunes who think that it’s OK to live in a city where … there’s a map you can go to on the internet that shows you where feces were.”

“They don’t distinguish dog and human, but they’ll show you the feces count that day around San Francisco,” he continued. 

“This is the same problem with [Vice President] Kamala Harris,” Gingrich said. “They come from the center of left-wing nuttiness, 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.”

Not stopping there, Gingrich added that Pelosi “has been in politics so long that she operates like a genuine machine politician of the old order.”

“And she doesn’t mind abusing power,” he explained. ‘She doesn’t mind running over people … she’s so willing to break the rules and to, frankly, just say things that are totally untrue.”

Gingrich Doubles Down

Host Mark Levin marveled at the “gall” Pelosi had when she outrageously claimed that the House impeaching Trump “unites the country.”

“It’s also interesting how the press react to her when she has a press conference,” Levin said. “You dare step out of line and ask her a tough question, she dismisses you, she diminishes you, and they don’t start yelling questions at her.”

“Well, what you have right now with the press corps are left-wing lapdogs,” Gingrich replied. “And their job is to go over and lick the hand of the left-wingers and then try to bite the Republicans.”

“So that’s their duty,” he concluded. “I mean, they’re just behaving like they’ve been trained to behave.”
