Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich Defends Steve Scalise

According to Mediaite, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich defended embattled House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) by bringing up President Barack Obama‘s association with Rev. Jeremiah Wright and questioning why Obama got a “pass.” Gingrich discussed it on the program Face The Nation.

“The president explained he didn’t hear any of [Wright’s controversial remarks about America], and we all gave him a pass,” Gingrich told Bob Scieffer on the show, adding Obama made a “great speech” in Philadelphia as a candidate when he attempted to distance himself from Wright.

  1. Newt is a no -nonsense guy, and I like him…but I liken this whole thing to Robert Byrd, the long-time Senator…who was in the Ku Klux Klan before serving in the Senate. Interesting that the Democrats didn’t say boo about that!
