And nuking Japan was unfair.

So what's his point exactly? Does he want Trump to run again? To continue destroying the GOP but good?
 
2021-01-21 9:14:49 PM  
No, it's right there in the Constitution: Article I, Section 3 provides for "disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust or profit under the United States"

Not that Newt was ever interested in the Constitution or rule of law.

Even assuming he's not going to get convicted, I don't think he really intended to do anything but collect campaign contributions, not to actually run. If he does run, he won't even get the nomination.If every other GOP politician died of covid and he got the nomination he'll lose worse than he did this time.

This is of course assuming he's still alive in 2024 and hasn't died from all the various things he should have already died from.

Even if they could block Donald Trump from running again (and some lawyers believe that the U.S. Supreme Court would refuse to enforce such a rule on the grounds of free speech), they cannot block him from being politically active.

Um... no. The Constitution blatantly says Congress has the power to ban him from running again if he is convicted after impeachment. They are going to say that no federal has purview to review that when it comes to impeachment. It's solely the job of Congress.

My 0.02c for the record. He will be convicted, but the wording will be such that he is cleared of the insurrection, but he will be barred from public office and lose his pension, SS detail etc. due to a sustained demonstration of being unfit for the position.

From your mouth to Republican Senator's ears.

Yeah, I'm not taking advice from this guy:

Let's remember, Newt famously dumped wife #1 for wife #2 while wife #1 was in the hospital recovering from cancer surgery. As in literally went to the hospital to present her with divorce papers while she was recovering from surgery for uterine cancer.

He eventually dumped wife #2 for wife #3 shortly after wife #2 was diagnosed with MS back in 1999. And he was having the affair on wife #2 with wife #3 while he was turning the country upside down trying to drive Bill Clinton from office over his affair with Monica Lewinsky.

Newt wants Trump in office to keep nominating hardline conservatives to the courts and destroying any hopes progressives have of making this country better for the general population.  He clearly does not give a rat's inflamed, prolapsed ass about the diplomatic standing of the USA around the world.  He wants to own the libs, figuratively and possibly literally, come hell or high water.  It's like he masturbates to Herbert Hoover's domestic policy nightly after disappointing his wife.

cats chase, catch, play with, and eat things like you, Gingrich.
 
2021-01-21 10:51:31 PM  
I don't think they should bar him from running for office again. Let him run under his Patriot Party banner, as a third candidate.

Though if he can't run they'll anoint Ivanka and that be just as much fun.

Blocking Donald Trump from running again is anti-democratic: Newt Gingrich

I'm confused, does that mean Newt is for it or against it?
 
2021-01-22 1:19:02 AM  
New Gingrich is why we have Trump today.

fark that guy. If I said that dude was a bag of diarrhea shiat that would be an insult to diarrhea shiat!!
 
2021-01-22 1:20:22 AM  
Farking a desk clerk behind your dying wife's back and divorcing her was unfair too, especially when you lead an impeachment over Bill Clinton lying about a blowjob behind his wife's back.
 
2021-01-22 1:20:31 AM  
One of the greatest tragedies of the 20th century was the amount of Republicans who visibly melted, but then suddenly stopped.

Not really. Obama is the reason we got Trump, because presidenting while black and some such nonsense.

I'm not even sure about that part.

It's unfair and undemocratic unless we end up doing the same thing to a Democrat.
 
2021-01-22 1:26:08 AM  
Considering in 52 months Donald Trump led the Republican Party to two popular vote defeats, one electoral college defeat, the loss of the house, the loss of the senate, permanent damage to the party with the seditious riots and the ensuing loss of massive financial and moderate voter support, and the never-ending tantrum threat of starting his own party to divide the base even more, Newt, I gotta ask, has Callista implanted so many egg sacs in your brain you can't process information anymore?
 
2021-01-22 1:27:05 AM  
Yeah, like we're gonna listen to a lizard person.
 
2021-01-22 1:28:29 AM  
I know my fellow Americans tend to have a short memory.  But have we all collectively forgotten that Newt Gingrich is a walking pile of shiat?  Who gives a fark what he thinks?
 
2021-01-22 1:29:58 AM  
Gingrich was a leading advocate for impeachment of Bill Clinton for any reason they could scrape up. Now he's trying to pretend impeachment is undemocratic. His hypocrisy is one of the main things that taught me of the disingenuousness of Republicans back in the 90s.
 
2021-01-22 1:32:38 AM  
F*ck fair.

Trump hasn't played fair his entire dogforsaken "career."

He deserves to be investigated and tried for corruption, international money laundering and sedition.

And if he and his "loyal" allies don't pay a stiff price for a) benefiting from soliciting foreign interference in our elections, and b) seditious incitement of insurrection, then it's gonna happen again.

Next time, by someone competent at something more than just grift and gaslighting.

F*ck Trump.

I would argue that blocking a man who incited a riot that stormed the capitol in an attempt to overturn a fair and legal election after spending months spreading lies and propaganda trying to undermine faith in our democracy from running for elected office is very much in the interests of democracy.
 
2021-01-22 1:39:07 AM  
He can't run if he is impeached in the senate.
 
2021-01-22 1:41:21 AM  
Newt can go fark himself with a rusty Trump flag.

Bennie Crabtree: He can't run if he is impeached in the senate.


He can only be impeached by the house. He has been. Now the Senate votes to convict. But conviction alone does not bar him from running. In addition to being removed from office they may decide to bar him from future public office, but it is an option, it isn't automatic if convicted.

There is no GOP, there is only Trump.

Also, the fact that I've never been president infringes on my freedom of speech.

It's MUCH easier to whine and bellyache about things while being an armchair critic and fleecing the rubes along the way.    He never expected to actually be responsible for for doing the actual work and having to deliver tangible results instead of soundbites.

I believe that there's a distinction between running for office and holding office.

He could be barred from holding office but still do it in his un-reality TV mode where he went through all of the motions of running for office. This could include holding rallies and attempting t o get on the ballot. He could certain speak.

However, having been barred from being able to actually hold office, I do believe that most states could bar him from actually appearing on an official ballot. Further, I would think it might be possible to charge him with some sort of fraud if he sought contributions to support a presidential campaign while representing that it could succeed.

I honestly don't think he wanted to win the first time. Allegedly he told Newt "I will be out early and swing my voters to you". He was planning Trump TV. Because he won his family and many others surrounding him are having legal problems. Looking at him and his wife's face when it was announced they didn't look very happy.

He is such a failure he couldn't lose the race.

Can we all agree that it is past time to stop asking Newt for his opinion? No one cares, and it just makes people stupider to be subjected to it.

That's why he thinks "getting tired of winning" is a thing.
