New MSNBC contributor Meghan McCain: Newt Gingrich is ‘sexist,’ ‘disgusting’ [VIDEO]
MSNBC has a new addition to its staff — Sen. John McCain’s daughter, Meghan McCain.
On his Wednesday program, MSNBC host Thomas Roberts introduced McCain and asked her to address her back-and-forth with presidential candidate and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich.
“Can you believe that?” McCain asked. “Former Speaker of the House I’m getting in fights with, I can’t believe it.”
In a specific incident addressing some remarks McCain made about his presidential bid, Gingrich said, “How would she have a clue?”
“I think he’s delusional,” McCain said. “And him calling me clueless I think is so sexist and disgusting and lame and a really offhanded remark … that he’s making towards me. And I think it’s ridiculous. Any polls that he’s reading, if you were seriously running for president, you wouldn’t be taking vacations to Greece during the middle of your campaign trail. I think he has a lot of other issues that all of us are very well aware of. And I would bet my career he’s not going to be our next nominee.”
