Newt Gingrich: Trump Supporters Will Be “Enormously Disappointed” If Romney Gets Any Kind Of Job [VIDEO]

The Hill reports:

Donald Trump’s supporters would be “enormously disappointed” if the president-elect nominates Mitt Romney to be secretary of State, Newt Gingrich said Sunday. Romney is reportedly at the top of the list to be the nation’s top diplomat in the new administration, but he was highly critical of Trump’s campaign, once calling him a “fraud” and a “con man.”

“I think there’s nothing Mitt Romney can say that doesn’t sound phony and frankly, pathetic,” Gingrich said on Fox News. “He called Trump vicious and vile things… And the idea that now that Trump has won that Mitt Romney would suddenly decide to issue a mea culpa and say, ‘Oh, gee, all the vicious things I said about you when you were running I didn’t really mean.'”

Gingrich continued: “He sure did mean them, and he sure did try to defeat Donald Trump. I think speaking for most of the Trump supporters, while we support President-elect Trump in whatever he does, I think we would be enormously disappointed if he brought Mitt into any position of authority.”

  • T-Batwoman

    You just know drumpf invited him to talk to further embarrass him by letting everyone know he caved. . . . . this is the new white house. smh

    • KnownDonorDad

      Remember what Trevor Noah said about Trump being the perfect third-world dictator-style president?

      • T-Batwoman

        not a fan, I don’t watch his show.

  • Michael R

    Well at least Newt agrees with Fabio .

  • Jeffrey

    I had a brief appreciation of Romney when he had the balls to stand up and say that Trump was a disaster for the country. But now that he is president elect he his kissing his ass like the rest of the sackless scumbags.

    • A couple of years from now the people who stood up to Trump might have salvageable careers. I thought Nikki whatshername had a future in the party. I guess not.

    Trump supporters will be disappointed if Phil Roberston isn’t Secretary of State, so go fuck yourself, Newt.

    • Joe in PA

      I’m thinking the other Robertson…the Duck Dynasty guy. THAT’S who Trump supporters really want.

      • HZ81

        I thought Phil was the Duck Dynasty guy. I’m proud to say I am getting those fucksticks confused.

        • Joe in PA

          omg, I read your comment incorrectly, you ARE right, Phil is DD. I read Pat Robertson. Sorry. ;(

          • HZ81

            If Pat weren’t 300 years-old, he’d be tapped.

          • Stephen Elliot Phillips

            Yuck. I aint tappin it

      Or Sarah Palin. I’m so so sorry I said that.

    Newt is on my top ten Most Horrible Hypocritical People Vomiting On The World Stage.

    • Lazycrockett

      Newt is human garbage plain and simple. I doubt any other person has done more harm to this country and its democracy than Gingrich. Evil best describes him.

      • Skeptical_Inquirer

        It also doesn’t say very much about his current wife. I hope either she or Newt come down with a nasty chronic illness. Though I prefer Newt come down with something so he can taste what being abandoned is like.

        • olandp

          No, women don’t generally leave their husbands when they become terminally ill. Callista will stay, being the grieving widow pays a lot better than being the ex-wife (you know she maneuvered the children from the first wife out of the will, she is a gold digger after all.)

          • Skeptical_Inquirer

            Well, maybe there will be a face pillow involved.

      • You should listen to my Teavangelical relatives. Newt is their idea of an intellectual. Not kidding. No, really. They do.

    • Paula

      Newt is definitely on my Top Ten People That Need An Axe Sticking Out Of Their Head,

  • Moebym of the Rebel Alliance

    I’m torn. Do I want Romney to show some spine by giving Anus Lips the finger, or do I want him to accept because it’ll make Anus Lips supporters froth at the mouth?

  • Yixing’s Fluffer

    Seriously, Jared, purge Gingrich and his crew next.

  • Treant

    Personally, I have hope that Romney will publicly grovel, kiss Trump’s ass, and then not get the job. Let’s completely destroy his reputation, what little remains.

    Then let Trump appoint somebody so bad that Congress has to dig deep to find anything nice to say about him (you know it’ll be a him).

    • Yixing’s Fluffer

      Nah, I’d rather see him pull a Lucy with the football on Cruz.

      “Ted, I’d love to put you on the Supreme Court, but first I’ll need you to testify against your father for that whole JFK thing.”

      • Treant

        Why limit ourselves? He could do both!

  • Lazycrockett

    Romney is NOT going to be SOS. This carrot is nothing more than to make Romney grovel at the feet of Drumpf. Ghoulini is the next SOS. Why Ms KellyAnne and Newt is so against it is beyond me. and Like this is what is gonna turn off his base? I would think no coal and no manufacturing jobs would be more important to rural america.

    • Yixing’s Fluffer

      Giuliani might not make it through the Senate. Rand Paul has already said no – two more and he’s sunk.

      • Lazycrockett

        That’s Congress, but Drumpf will select him. Loyalty is all that matters to Drumpf. Experience, intelligence, ability does not matter. Look at his other picks.

        • Yixing’s Fluffer

          Betsy DeVos has been a loyal donor to the GOP but I don’t think there’s any longstanding relationship between her and Trump. Either she was Priebus’ suggestion or Trump is auctioning off certain posts, potentially for favors and in-kind gifts rather than cash.

          • DaddyRay

            I was thinking DeVos was more of a Pence pick

          • Yixing’s Fluffer

            Ahh, could be. She certainly gives Pence a run for the crown of Supreme Homophobe.

          • KnownDonorDad

            Makes sense – the anti-gay, anti-science fundamentalists stick together.

          • Stev84

            Doesn’t have to be a lasting relationship. Swearing fealty to the Dear Leader is enough

      • I know that Republicans are going to appoint people I don’t like because Republicans, but Giuliani is not just unsuited for the job of SOS, he’s the mirror image of what a SOS needs to be. He might be a good AG. He was a prosecutor. But what made him good at that job (and sometimes effective as mayor) is that he revels in people hating him. That’s not a quality one wants in a diplomat.

    • Platos_Redhaired_Stepchild

      Mitt Romney is backwards by our standards but I don’t think he’d condone Trump’s worst excesses. Gulliani would be happy to green light anything.

      • Yixing’s Fluffer

        The problem is whether anybody else in the room would listen to Romney. I have a hard time believing Flynn wouldn’t just shout Romney down if he ever raised objections.

    • Cuberly

      I may be full of it but, Bannon, Conway, Ghouliani are all strict Catholics. Now Newt, a freshly minted Catholic, chimes in.

      Just seems like a very specific type of cabal is being forged around Dahnald.

    • CottonBlimp

      Oh, they’ll be okay with not having jobs if they get back the privilege to lynch people.

      The way those stupid fucks vote, it’s like they think they can feed their families with Jesus and racism.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    It would almost be worth it, if it meant watching the Trumpanzees lose their shit then fling it at the walls of the White House.

    • safari

      If the tea party has taught me anything it is that they’ll blame everyone but themselves, claim DC corrupted Donald, and then find someone worse.

  • safari

    Trump supports will be enormously disappointed.

    He should stop the sentence there.

  • Martin

    OT: Thinking of Purchasing from Floor & Decor? Think again…

    • safari

      (The story is about a store manager calling a gay customer with his 4 year old son a faggot and having Donald’s supporters join in.)

      Quite upsetting.

      • Moebym of the Rebel Alliance

        A child?!?! They couldn’t even hold it in in front of a four-year-old. Damn.

    How long before all the people Donald nommed turn against each other?

  • AtticusP

    When I was a kid, two of my paternal great grandfather’s sisters were still living.

    The younger of the two–my great great Aunt Corinne–was what they called back then a “tomboy”.

    And I swear to God: if you just added a pair of rhinestone-studded eyeglasses on a silver chain around his neck, Newt Gingrich would be a dead ringer for my great great Aunt Corinne.

  • karen in kaliforia

    I’m enormously disappointed anytime I have to look at Grinch’s face.

  • Lumpy Gaga

    “I think there’s nothing Mitt Romney can say that doesn’t sound phony and frankly, pathetic,” Gingrich said

    My head just ‘sploded.

  • Clive Johnson

    How sweet the idea of Authoritarian Know-It-All Grandpa being bitterly disappointed.

  • andrew

    Newt’s real message: Donald please name me Secretary of State.

    • jefe5084

      Exactly my thought while I was reading that Bloviator Maximus BS.

    • JWC

      Gangreach is one scary dude

  • KnownDonorDad

    So it’ll be Guiliani. Which leads me to the next question: if the U.S. Senate grows a backbone, which is the one pick so far you’d choose to block? I think the best case can be made against Betsy DeVos.

    • Dagoril

      None of them are qualified. I would block them all.

      And I’m not saying that because they are Republicans. They are all, like Hair Furor, completely unsuitable for their jobs.

  • SFBruce

    So, according to Gingrich, Romney is phony, pathetic and vicious, but if he’s Trump’s secretary of state, Gingrich will support him. Who is it that sounds phony and pathetic now?

    • Gianni

      Nothing like having the backbone to stand by your words.

    The Faux & Friends people don’t look to happy about their wildest dreams coming true.

          • Beagle

            Thank you. Much needed these days.

  • JWC

    the double standard Rebuplicans Trump was not vile or vicious to all other candidates including Clinton and family??? Guilani is a delusional old fart who still seeks recognition for 911 An old man outside shouting at clouds

    • Gianni

      The adoration and glow of being “America’s Mayor” has fallen away. Being a nutjob for Trump gives him a lot of new exposure and face time. The old attention whore needs it apparently. Something akin to recapturing old glory.

      • JWC

        one scary old dude Shoots from the lip rather than the hip and doesn’t have a fact checker that works

  • Elsewhere1010

    Considering how things have been going, I’m betting more than a few of Trump’s supporters are already enormously disappointed.

  • I wonder if Romney is smart enough to know he’s being played. Trump is going to demand a public apology for his lack of support and then toss him aside. I will laugh my ass off if he’s stupid enough to get played like that.

    • GeneInSJ

      So will I.

    • BearEyes

      I would love to see this charade go right to the wire where tRump thinks he’ll have rMoney debase himself only to have Mittens double down on his statement that don the con is the fraudulent liar he is and expose the whole game. Sure, he’ll burn a bunch of bridges, but he’ll likely build more in the long run.

  • IamM

    Like their fee-fees are the most important consideration.

  • Secure

    The WASP’s don’t like Mr. Mormon.

  • Cuberly

    Weird now qualifications just don’t fucking matter to that crowd. We really have entered fact-free la la land haven’t we.

  • greenmanTN

    Trump supporters would be lucky to their way out of a wet paper bag,so how about we stop basing domestic and international policy on their thoughts? Hmmm?

  • GeneInSJ

    Mitt will have to get down on his knees before the Orange Oaf. I’m sure he’ll have no problem doing that.

  • zhera

    Shut up, you whoring old gnome! Why are you on TV talking about this? Don’t you have a book deal to grift? Oh, right. This is all part of the grift.

  • Tor

    “I think there’s nothing Mitt Romney can say that doesn’t sound phony and frankly, pathetic,”
    My irony meter just exploded.

    • agcons

      At least you still had one. I cannot find a replacement and I’ve been looking for months.

    • coram nobis

      It would be even more ironic if Donald appointed our first transvestite cabinet officer; I’m sure the world’s foreign ministries would find it interesting.

  • chris james

    Let’s just hope Newt gets nothing…self serving lying bastard.

  • Jeffg166

    That’s right Newtie tell Donald what he can’t do. Looked like Romney has the job.

  • TimCA

    I guess we can put away that pretense that Donald Trump wants to be a “president for all Americans” as he claimed after the election. Hell, it appears he won’t even try to president for the entire Republican Party much less the whole country.

  • EdmondWherever

    “He called Trump vicious and vile things…

    But everybody was doin’ it!

    • Brian Westley

      I notice Newt didn’t say they were false vicious and vile things…

  • Professor Barnhardt

    Frankly, I get annoyed every time I hear Newt Gingrich say “frankly.”

    • coram nobis

      Isn’t Frank Lee his administrative assistant?

      • Professor Barnhardt

        Hoo-wee; that’s that fancy Latin stuff, ain’t it?

          No, it’s Labrador. Carpe canem. Seize the dog.

  • Jay Silversmith

    “I think there’s nothing Mitt Romney can say that doesn’t sound phony and pathetic”
    Wow. The Irony completely escapes Newt’s pea brain at warp speed.

  • coram nobis

    Anybody that thought Mitt had an ounce of integrity or dignity would be disappointed if he accepted this, esp. with the sort of apology Our Leader will expect.

    “See? His apology was sincere, okay?” said Mr. Trump, as the new Secretary of State polished the President Elect’s shoes with his tongue on camera. Reactions from the world’s foreign ministries was mixed.

  • bob

    I would love for romney to be offered a job, and then come out with a statement saying he declined. Can you imagine trumps outrage at another slap? Do it mitt!

  • Gerry Fisher

    “How DARE Trump appoint someone competent!!!”

  • Whicker Park

    And the Swamp mire gets bigger and more odorous..

  • No they won’t. The same people who voted for Trump voted for Romney. Goddamn I hate this false narrative that here was a surge of voters for Trump, when he was unspectacular in performance.

    • Kay

      “The same people who voted for Trump voted for Romney. ”

      No, we didn’t. Many, many of us were voting for the first time. Trump set records in the Republican primaries, and the poor turnout for Hillary won the election.

      The whole idea behind the Trump campaign (and much of the sanders one) is that we are tired of the status quo and want things to change. Romney is a status quo candidate – if we had wanted him, we would have elected Cruz, or Kasich.

      Besides, I will never, ever vote for a mormon. I know way too much about the church to ever trust someone who chooses to remain “temple worthy”.

  • TheSeer

    Mitt Romney is too decent for this sh*tshow. And he was spot on with Russia back in 2012. It is the biggest foe of the civilized world (if there is such thing anymore?).
