Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said on Wednesday that if Donald Trump chose him to be vice president, it would be a “two-pirate ticket.”

Appearing on Fox News’s “Hannity,” Gingrich said, “In many ways, Donald Trump is like a pirate. He’s outside the normal system, he gets things done, he’s bold, he’s actually like a figure out of a movie.” (RELATED: Trump On Possible VP: Newt Gingrich Will Be ‘Involved With Our Government’ [VIDEO])

“In a lot of ways my entire career has been a little bit like a pirate. I’ve taken on the establishment of both parties, I’ve been very prepared to fight in the media. One of the really hard questions he’s got to weigh,” Gingrich said was “do you really want a two-pirate ticket? Or do you want to take a very solid guy–”


Host Sean Hannity interjected, “Do you really want a bold transformative team that is going to fight hard?”

“In all fairness, if you look at what Mike Pence did in the Congress and then you look at what Mike Pence has done in Indianapolis as governor building on the extraordinary record of Mitch Daniel, Indiana has a great story to tell but his style is different than mine.”

“You could make a pretty good argument that with somebody as big and as noisy as Donald Trump, having someone who is a little bit quieter and a little bit more traditional–,” Gingrich said before being cut off by Hannity.
