Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich praised President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh Tuesday and said he knocked it “out of the park.”
“I think this was the best performance by the president so far,” Gingrich said on “Fox & Friends.” (RELATED: Newt Gingrich Makes The Case For Welfare Reform)
“You take the total consultation, the way he has approached it. The quality of his speech last night. Framing it constitutionally. And then, frankly, Judge Kavanaugh just knocked it out of the park.”
“I don’t know how they are going to demonize him on the left after introducing his two daughters. Talking about the work he does,” Gingrich continued. “Serving food in Catholic charities. Coaching the girls’ basketball team. His background. His mother’s remarkable history. Teaching in two schools that were largely African-American.”
Gingrich said Kavanaugh’s family background and social credentials should make him a lock for Senate confirmation sometime in September.
“That whole family story it seems to me is going to bear out very, very well,” he concluded. “And I think almost guarantees that he will be approved by the Senate probably in late September.”
