Newt Gingrich is FURIOUS that Republicans have yet to confirm Kevin McCarthy of California as the next speaker of the House of Representatives.
There are about 20 Republicans in the House who are opposing Representative-elect McCarthy for speaker. Newt Gingrich is calling them "Blackmailers."
Chip Roy is one of those 20 Republicans, and he didn't take Newt's message lightly.
Newt Gingrich hasn't served as House speaker since the nineties, and he's fallen completely out of touch with what's going on in Congress since then, according to Roy, who said:
If Newt Gingrich wants to pick up the phone and call me, then he might actually know the facts. You might have been speaker 25 years ago, but you don’t know the facts right now and you’re parroting the talking points that are being shoved through the system in this town, that are being fed by the big spending machine that has been driving this country into the ditch.
"I don’t have any time for listening to fossils, sitting on Fox News, making their money on their contracts, coming out and talking about things they don’t know anything about," Roy concluded.
