Newt Gingrich, famed former speaker of the House and a Bill and Hillary Clinton battler for more than two decades, summed up the couple’s entire life-long quest for fame, power, influence and money is a single word during a recent Fox & Friends morning show interview.
“The only way to describe them,” Gingrich said, Western Journalism reported, “is they’re grifters.”
Specifically, he noted the great lengths the Clintons go to in order to make themselves appear as part of the elite class – going to Hollywood shindigs, hanging with the wealthy on Martha’s Vineyard, traveling to sunny beach get-aways in Southern California. But then he called them out for their dishonesty, and likened them to the classic dictionary definition of a grifter.
“These are people who show up in movies,” Gingrich said, “who lie to everybody, steal from everybody … If you think of [the Clintons] as grifters, you might sort of get it.”
Gingrich isn’t alone in his assessment of the Clintons. As Western Journalism reported, famed conservative author, pundit and movie-maker Dinesh D’Souza has also characterized the famous couple in similar terms while interviewing with the Point about his recent documentary, “Hillary’s America.”
But Gingrich is the latest – and as he said, in a different time, different era, the Clintons would not be able to live so cavalierly.
“In a normal, healthy society,” Gingrich told his Fox & Friends hosts, “they would both be ostracized for being unpatriotic scammers who go around using public trust and public money, then lying about it pathetically. Instead, we all just get numb to it. It’s an amazing thing to live through.”
