There is one thing I know for sure – Republicans are hypocrites. And apparently, Republicans are shameless.
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich made the rounds this past week to reveal his latest belief in support of President Trump – that it is impossible for him to obstruct justice because he is president.
That’s right, he firmly believes that Trump cannot be charged with obstruction of justice because it is impossible for a president to do so. Nice try, Newt. [Does anyone else find it humorous that this snake is named for a lizard?]
There’s one big, glaring problem with Newt’s declaration of Trump’s infallibility – as Speaker of the House, he literally filed the articles of impeachment against President Bill Clinton – for obstruction of justice.
CNN did us all the honor of putting together a little clip of Newt’s statement this week vs. his very different belief back in 1998.
So is Newt a big, ugly, shameless hypocrite? You decided. And then click “share” to join the conversation on Facebook.
