Newt Gingrich Blasts ‘Prostitute’ Joe Scarborough Over ‘Grotesque’ Mueller Conspiracy

Newt Gingrich spoke with Fox’s Jeanine Pirro on Saturday night, and he swatted at MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough after the Morning Joe host slammed Gingrich on Twitter earlier this week.

The former House Speaker was on tonight’s show to continue his argument that Robert Mueller is a partisan figure who should be removed as special counsel for the independent investigation of President Trump and Russia’s election interference. Trump recently confirmed that Mueller is investigating him in connection to James Comey‘s firing, and Pirro asked Gingrich about whether the president creates problems by mixing himself up with the ongoing investigations.

As they discussed, Pirro brought up the recent tweetstorm where Scarborough savaged Gingrich for his “grotesque” theory that Mueller is part of the anti-Trump “deep state.” Pirro especially focused on how Scarborough asked “exactly is the price of an ambassadorship these days,” as a jab at how Gingrich’s wife has been nominated as the U.S. ambassador to the Vatican.

“Well now we know the degree to which Joe is a prostitute that apparently he would do that. I wouldn’t,” Gingrich said in response. “My record of being for Trump is clear. I’m deeply committed to his presidency because I think we need to shake up Washington.”
