Newt Gingrich: Nancy Pelosi Probably ‘the Most Dangerous Speaker' in US History
Former House speaker says 'Pelosi is surrounded by left-wing looney tunes'
Newt Gingrich described Democrat Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) as probably “the most dangerous” House speaker in American history.
During an interview with Fox News host Mark Levin on his show “Life, Liberty & Levin," Gingrich was asked if Pelosi was “the worst” speaker who has ever served in Congress.
“And I would say that she is the most dangerous speaker of the House we’ve had probably in American history because she’s so willing to break the rules and to frankly just say things that are totally untrue,” He said.
“She lives in an enclave that is guarded in San Francisco,” Republican former House Speaker Gingrich continued.
“She is surrounded by left-wing looney tunes who think it is okay to live in a city where you literally … [have a] map you can go to on the internet that shows you where feces were that day," he added.
"They don’t distinguish dog and human — but they’ll show you the feces count that day around San Francisco.”
Gingrich suggested Pelosi has the same view of the United States as Vice President Kamala Harris because “they come from the center of left-wing nuttiness and all of their friends at the local country club or all of their friends when they go to a cocktail party think this craziness makes sense.”
Gingrich noted that Pelosi learned politics from her father and brother, who “were the mayors of Baltimore.”
He added that Pelosi spent years in politics that she still “operates like a genuine machine politician of the old order and she doesn’t mind abusing power."
"She doesn’t mind running over people," he stated.
"Also interesting how the press reacts to her,” suggesting reporters don’t “dare step out of line and ask her tough questions: she dismisses you, she diminishes you.”
Pelosi brought an article of impeachment against President Donald Trump for a second time earlier this month for allegedly inciting insurrection after a rally turned into a riot a the Capitol building on Jan. 6.
In November, following the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, Gingrich said the race could be the “biggest presidential theft” since 1824.
Gingrich said in a tweet at the time:
“The more data comes out on vote anomalies that clearly are not legitimate, the more it looks like 2020 may be the biggest Presidential theft since Adams and Clay robbed Andrew Jackson in 1824."
