Newt Gingrich Compares Hillary Clinton to Kim Kardashian

During another host-only edition of CNN’s Crossfire Tuesday, Newt Gingrich reached back to 2011 to draw an elaborate analogy between Hillary Clinton and Kim Kardashian.

Now that Bill Clinton is defending his wife’s “dead broke” comment, Gingrich decided to compare the political prowess of the former president and first lady.

“You have to understand the problem Bill Clinton has,” Gingrich said. “Bill is to politics what Fred Astaire was to dancing. He is just automatically amazing.” And while he “wants to have Ginger Rogers out there dancing” with him, instead, Gingrich explained, “it’s a little bit like watching Kim Kardashian get kicked off the set by Prince.”

For the woefully uninformed, Prince brought Kardashian up on stage during a concert at Madison Square Garden in February 2011 and quickly changed his mind when she declined to dance, saying, “Get off the stage!”

Moving right along, Gingrich said he hoped Hillary was studying Bill when he spoke on the issue today. He concluded, “I think there’s a big problem, because I don’t think, as a candidate, that she dances very well.”
