Things I Hate About Newt Gingrich

He is the worst.

Newt thinks kids should get a part time job to pay for school, but he refused to work during college.

After saying elementary students should replace adult janitors in order to learn “work ethic” (with the implication that they would never learn it at home) and arguing that college students expect “free money” to pay for their education, it turns out baby Newt might have benefitted from giantbaby Newt’s idiocy:

In a 1995 profile for Vanity Fair, author Gail Sheehy discovered that Gingrich financed his own education largely via the hard work of this then-wife. When things got tight, finding a job was not high on his to-do list. Sheehy wrote that Gingrich turned first to his adoptive father for help, and then to his biological one:

“Newt, who avoided Vietnam with student and marriage deferments, resisted taking a job. During his college years, Newt called up his father and stepmother to ask for financial help. His stepmother, Marcella McPherson, can still hear his exact words: ‘I do not want to go to work. I want all my time for my studies. . . . Bob Gingrich told me he will not help me one bit. So I wondered, would you people help me?’ Big Newt began sending him monthly checks.

“Dolores Adamson, Gingrich’s district administrator from 1978 to 1983, remembers, ‘Jackie put him all the way through school. All the way through the PhD. . . . He didn’t work.’ ”

Working through school: it’s alright for the poors and the minorities, but not for Newty.

I’ll be sure to write “fuck newt gingrich” on my next student loan payment check. I fucking hate you, Newt.

I hate that Newt Gingrich is a lying hypocrite (and usually gets away with it).

After his terse, petulant “no” in response to a question about his request for an open marriage with his second wife (which has been addressed on TIHANG), Newt insisted he had people who would confirm that her claim was false.

Let me be quite clear. Let me be quite clear. The story is false. Every personal friend I have who knew us in that period said the story was false. We offered several of them to ABC to prove it was false. They weren’t interested because they would like to attack any Republican.

Turns out he was lying, according to his own campaign staffer:

"Tonight, after persistent questioning by our staff, the Gingrich campaign concedes now Speaker Gingrich was wrong — both in his debate answer, and in our interview yesterday," King said on tonight’s edition of John King USA. "Gingrich spokesman R.C. Hammond says the only people the Gingrich campaign offered to ABC were his two daughters from his first marriage."

So either Newt is a liar, or his only only personal friends are his daughters.

What a jerk. What a disgusting piece of shit. Not only do you cheat on your wife, you then request that your cheating be redefined as an open marriage, then you lie about it in a debate, then you have a staffer correct you after you’ve won South Carolina (partly due to momentum after that debate). Not to mention, all of this is happening after you made a huge fucking deal out of a former president’s infidelity.

I would vote for Newt Gingrich if he were running for the Presidency of the Hypocritical States of Liemerica.
