Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R) does not hold a positive view of one of his successors.
“He’s extraordinary, one of the most important Senate leaders in American history,” Gingrich said of McConnell.
He explained, “I think McConnell both in getting all the judges through and in getting the enormous aid package through has been magnificent.”
However, his assessment of Pelosi was not as good, “I think Pelosi has become despicable.”
“I think that her comment the other day comparing President Trump to Nero fiddling while Rome burned was just utterly, totally irresponsible, dishonest, and counter to what Americans need. Americans need to come together to defeat the virus. They don’t need to have petty politicians trying to tear the country apart, or for that matter, petty newsmen at these press conferences trying to tear the country apart.”
Listen to his comments below:
Gingrich’s remarks appeared to be in reference to comments Pelosi made about Trump’s coronavirus response.
During an interview on CNN on Sunday, Pelosi said that Trump’s “denial at the beginning was deadly.”
She added, “As the president fiddles, people are dying.”
