  1. newt sounds like he has been drinking a little bit too much.

    I think that back then there were jokes about newt being the Grinch.

  3. this just cracks me up, lol. the gop is actually scum, using Christmas as an excuse when they did the same thing. ty dr maddow.

    • @Clark Williams Hi, would you please tell me the first lie told in the video? Quote/reference and timestamp please.

    • you all are certainly correct about clark. i just did a check of his channel, no content. having no content, together with making rude or just outrageous statements is an excellent indication of a russian troll. please be careful though, they are trying to make money off of us. they get paid for their comments or replies at a rate of about 85 rubles each. if we just downvote these clowns and ignore them then they will eventually move on. they are all over youtube videos, and social media of all sorts. they have ramped it up because of the impeachment but if they don’t earn any money we can drive them out. ty everyone, except clark of course, and have a beautiful evening 🙂
      oh and, putin is a clumsy clown and a worldwide laughingstock. what a maroon, lol!

      @Clark Williams Maybe your Russian to English translator is off and telling you truth and lies are the opposite. Or are you looking for that big raise from Putin?

      @Gargenfluck Gosphenspiels Here we go. Just as I predicted, the dumb ones always go back to “you’re a Russian agent”. Stupid stupid person. Check out the news that Barr is about to indite shitface and 7 top demonrats. lol They are going down along with all your little fake hope and dreams. Teach you for blindly supporting the crooked dems. May you cry foe another 4 years after 2020.

  4. If you guys and gals wanna REALLY see some hypocrisy at it’s finest, look up Lindsay Graham on his stance with Clinton’s impending impeachment and his obstruction to give over files?!!! It’s a HOOT?!!

    • B Bodziak – I think this is the Trevor Noah episode to which you referred. “Anyone but Trump”. It’s delicious‼️

    • Hypocrisy is Newt publicly denouncing Bill Clinton for his relationship with a White House intern while he privately had an affair with his congressional aide, while his wife was home with cancer. What a two-faced creep!

  5. The only word that describes the GOP defense. Hypocrisy.

  6. I love it when stupid old republicans get shown up by their own past words.

    • vince kelly Trump has lied more than anyone, as have right-wing media like Fox. The difference between those you mention and the right-wing is they don’t keep repeating the same lies after they have been debunked multiple times.

    • So basically, every single day.

    • @vince kelly Not as many times as your momma, inbred. She’s still peddling the lie that your’re “daddy’s”, and not your brother’s offspring.

      Donnie + Ivanka = Baron.

      And they deny it, even with video. What we see and hear isn’t really happening, right? Just nauseating.

    • Marie Espinoza | December 7, 2019 at 10:32 PM | Reply

      During the hearings, they should just replay all the things Republicans said when they were impeaching Bill Clinton. Like Lindsey Graham, ““Impeachment is not about punishment. Impeachment is about cleansing the office. Impeachment is about restoring honor and integrity to the office.”

  7. That man has fallen so far. He’s all in, riding first class on the Trump Lie Train. It’s insane.

  8. Did he just say ”The DEMOCRATS have no interest in the facts”?!? Hahaha, Newt, you clearly meant to say Republicans.

    • @CommonSense Wow you can’t even admit you were wrong…. crazy

    • @Mango Mussolini Your opinions mean nothing…. but keep thinking they do….. You better go hide from global warming.

    • @CommonSense You avoid the real corruption which is Biden getting his worthless kid on a board making copious amounts of money in a country his father was appointed to policy. It’s ok for Obama/Biden to withhold a billion until they fire the prosecutor who was investigating burisma. How convenient for them…. a real quid pro quo which you say is impeachable . What a bunch of hypocrites!!

    • @Lapin074 Sounds like something you’ve done before….. WOW!!!

  9. What facts are Newt talking about that Dems are supposedly ignoring? No specifics because there is no truth to it.

  10. Newt: insert foot, chew vigorously.

  11. smirk Mc flerkin | December 7, 2019 at 5:13 AM | Reply

    This coming from the fn grinch the man who taught these repugnant Republicans how to obstruct and obscure.

  12. The best part about Newts hypocrisy is his admission that during the clinton impeachment HE was also cheating on HIS wife! But leaders don’t have to be perfect according to him 🤣🤣🤣 how do republicans get people to vote for them still?! These ‘leaders’ are the most hypocritical, egotistical morons available!


  14. Newt is a joke. These people have sold their souls to Satan and love what that brings…for now.

    Gingrich left his memory at home. He forgot what he did in 1998.

  16. Didn’t he leave his sick wife for
    a aide?! Get off the high
    horse Gingrinchy

    • pink, sad that Newt’s been through enough divorces we have to specify that it’s the “sick wife”.

    • @bc1969214 I believe pink winter29 is referring to Newt’s first wife, Jackie Battley, who Newt served with divorce papers while she was in the hospital being treated for uterine cancer. *Classy*!

    • But Christian Republicans LOVE to do that!! Don’t forget Mike Huckaby served papers on his (now ex) wife while she was recuperating in the hospital from a double mastectomy!

      SARAH is so proud of her pedo- daddy! She actually believes she’ll win a political office. LOL

  17. Poor, pathetic Newt. Looks like his Alzheimer’s is kicking in.

    “it is really sad to see the dishonesty and partisanship that the house democrats are displaying…”

    wow… that’s some twelfth-level mage gaslighting right there…

  19. Newt Gingrich complaining about partisanship, thats rich.

    Newt Gingrich the guy that cheated on his dying wife, just another hypocrite.
