Newt Gingrich

After talking to Hoffa and RNC Chairman Jim Nicholson, we spotted a familiar mop of white hair. No, it wasn’t Phil Donahue, it was Newt Gingrich. The issue of reproductive rights has been raised consistently here in the protests in the streets of Philadelphia, as demonstrators attempted to block delegates from boarding buses for the convention. Newt Gingrich himself was even surrounded by protesters before being rescued by police.

In 1995, during the first 100 Days of the Republican Congress, Amy Goodman questioned Gingrich about his mother’s comment that he’d called Hillary Clinton a bitch.

Tape:

  • Newt Gingrich, then and now.
