Newt Gingrich decried on “The Cats Roundtable” radio show on WABC 770 AM, hosted by John Catsimatidis, that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is becoming a “dictator.”
Gingrich’s poke at Pelosi came after the former speaker praised the House of Representatives as an institution to freedom. “[The House of Representatives] is a center of freedom…It is built on the tradition of the British House of Commons.”
But “watching [Pelosi] become a dictator,” Gingrich said; “watching her break every single rule; watching her run things entirely on her own — I think it is the most destructive thing I’ve ever seen done by any American politician in a very very long time … There’s no respect for the rule of law when it … involve[s] … an issue that the left cares about.”
According to a Friday report, Pelosi mentioned that she was “very confident” Democrats would take the House in 2022 despite polling that indicates they would lose it.
Polling in key districts indicates that only 42% of likely voters trust Democrats to handle the economy.
”There are several scenarios here,” Pelosi said, seeming to refer to the lack of support. ”That was one of them.”
The speaker added that Democrats ”have their own connections to their own districts,” while adding that messaging was the key to winning those districts.
