Gingrich: 'Pelosi Has Become Despicable,' 'Totally Irresponsible, Dishonest'

Gingrich rips Nancy Pelosi: She 'has become despicable'


When asked about the actions of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in response to the coronavirus, former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) said she "has become despicable."
He added that her recent remark comparing President Donald Trump to the Roman tyrant Nero -- "fiddling while Rome burned" -- was "utterly, totally irresponsible, dishonest, and counter to what Americans need" at this time. 
On the Hugh Hewitt Show, April 2, host Hugh Hewitt asked, " Let me close by asking you, Mr. Speaker, about the, your successor, Nancy Pelosi, and Leader Mitch McConnell. I believe it’s been Mitch McConnell’s finest hour and will be remembered as such negotiating the passage of a 96-0 vote on a $2.2 trillion dollar bill. But Speaker Pelosi has not been, in my view, a constructive force. How do you assess these two most important members of Article I?"
Gingrich, who served as House Speaker from 1995 to 1999, said, "Well, look, I think McConnell, both in getting all the judges through and in getting the enormous aid package through, has been magnificent."

"He’s extraordinary, one of the most important Senate leaders in American history," said Gingrich.
"I think Pelosi has become despicable," added the former Speaker.  "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," he said.  "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."

"We need to figure out how are we going to save American lives, beat the virus, and help the rest of the planet beat the virus, and Nancy Pelosi is an absolute negative figure dragging down the country," he said.
Asked by Hewitt to evaluate the president's performance in response to the coronavirus, Gingrich said, "Well, my newsletter tomorrow is going to describe the commander-in-chief as entrepreneur, which I think is totally outside the comprehension of the news media. This is one of the, this is the only pure entrepreneur ever to be president."
"He is extraordinarily energetic," said Gingrich.  "He is learning at an extraordinary pace. And he’s an historic figure."
"I think that by the time this is over, as he defeats the virus, pivots and relaunches the economy, people will realize how important it was that we had Donald Trump at this moment in American history," said Gingrich.
