Newt Gingrich: Nancy Pelosi Is a 'Destructive Dictator'
'There’s no respect for the rule of law'
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has blasted Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, calling her a “dictator” with “no respect for the rule of law.”
During New York WABC 770 AM radio’s “The Cats Roundtable,” Gingrich told host John Catsimatidis:
“As a former speaker of the House, I think that the U.S. House is very, very, very important."
“And watching [Pelosi] become a dictator, watching her break every single rule, watching her run things entirely on her own, I think, is the most destructive thing I’ve seen done by any American politician in a very, very long time."
"And I think that we will see for years from now that problem.”
“[T]here’s no respect for the rule of law at the border,” he added.
“There’s no respect for the rule of law when it gets involved in an issue that the left-wing cares about.”
Gingrich said that legislation passed by Democrats under Pelosi’s watch could lead to “Jimmy Carter-style inflation.”
“Although we already have inflation."
"We already see gasoline prices going up, food prices going up, housing prices going up, car prices going up."
"They are going to try to pass these two gigantic bills that we’re going to put even more pressure on the economy,” he said.
Earlier this year, Gingrich described Pelosi as probably “the most dangerous” House speaker in American history.
"And I would say that she is the most dangerous speaker of the House we’ve had probably in American history."
"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 Gingrich continued.
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."
