Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich called MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough a “prostitute” after he suggested on Saturday that Gingrich was lashing out at former FBI Director Robert Mueller because his wife, Callista Gingrich, was recently appointed to become the U.S. ambassador to the Vatican.
Gingrich told host Jeanine Pirro that his support for Trump has been unwavering the entire time:
“Now we know to the degree of which Joe [Scarborough] is a prostitute that apparently he would do that,” Gingrich said of his former colleague in the U.S. House of Representatives. He continues:
“I wouldn’t. My record of being for Trump is clear. It’s unending. I just wrote a book, ‘Understanding Trump.’ I am deeply committed to this presidency because I think we need to shake up Washington. By the way, when I ran in ’12, it was very similar to Trump except I wasn’t as good as he is. So, there’s a long continuum of my support for Reagan, to the ‘Contract With America,’ to Donald Trump. And I would challenge Joe Scarborough, who knows me pretty darn well, to be honest about this.”
