Newt Rebukes Piers Morgan For Trying To Educate Him On Politics

Newt Gingrich appeared on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight" to discuss his campaign and Mitt Romney among other relevant topics.

At one point during the interview, Piers Morgan tells Newt what kind of candidate he is and what he will be seen as. For example, Piers Morgan tells Newt the "reality of politics" is that you're going to try to be the "anti-Mitt candidate."

Newt, at this point, lectures Piers Morgan on how he has been involved in politics since 1958 and how he may know a thing or two about politics.

"The reality of politics is that you're probably going to be, whether you like it or not, seen as the anti-Mitt candidate," Piers Morgan said to Gingrich.

"Now, see, this is what I find fascinating, okay," Gingrich told CNN's Piers Morgan on his nightly program. :I've been involved with politics since 1958. I helped grow the modern Republican Party of Georgia. I helped create a national majority, and you're explaining to me the reality of politics," Newt said, shooting down the host's premise that Newt doesn't know what kind of candidate he is.

However, it doesn't end there. Gingrich concludes by telling Mr. Morgan the reality of politics as he sees it.

"The reality of politics is if you have a good enough leader who is positive enough, they can ignore the other candidates, they can create a positive majority around a positive set of solutions, and let the other candidate worry about me," Gingrich said.
