Newt Gingrich Mocks Mitt Romney For "Sucking Up" To Donald Trump

|

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich joined radio host Laura Ingraham to discuss the Trump transition and his hopes for the Trump administration.

NEWT GINGRICH: There's a scene in 'Pretty Women' where Richard Gere goes up to the salesman on Rodeo Drive and says: 'We need a little sucking up here.'

You have never, ever, in your career seen a wealthy adult who is independent, has been a presidential candidate, suck up at the rate that Mitt Romney is sucking up.

I am confident that he thinks now that he and Donald Trump are the best of friends, they have so many things in common. That they're both such wise, brilliant people. And I'm sure last night at an elegant three-star restaurant, he was happy to share his version of populism, which involve a little foie gras, a certain amount of superb cooking, but put that in a populist happy manner.

LAURA INGRAHAM: I was trying to figure out what the frog legs on the menu meant.

GINGRICH: The frog legs are very elegant. Callista and I both had fathers who ate frog legs. I did notice that Reince Priebus of Kenosha, Wisconsin decided not to have frog legs. I can't wait to talk to Reince and find out exactly how a guy of his background worked his way through the menu.

Luckily for them, Mitt speaks French fluently. So he could help them with the menu. He could say: 'Ahh, Mr. President-elect. This would be the perfect meal for you.'

Something like maybe escargot, maybe pheasant. God, I'd love to have been there as a fly on the wall...

They know that every day that goes by the opposition to Romney grows...

Every day they let this thing hang out there it becomes harder and more expensive to pick Romney.
