Newt Gingrich is in a dark place

Newt,my boy.My dear,morally bankrupt Newt. What did Mr. Trump do to you? Did he hurt you? You can tell us.You don’t have to do this.

Newt Gingrich, who has not been given any formal position in Donald Trump’s administration despite countless months of groveling and boot-licking, made a big no-no yesterday. Because yesterday, on NPR’s Morning Edition,Newt Gingrich said this:

I’m told he now just disclaims [the promise to “drain the swamp”]. He now says it was cute, but he doesn’t want to use it anymore. ... I’d written what I thought was a very cute tweet about “the alligators are complaining,” and somebody wrote back and said they were tired of hearing this stuff. ...

Newt was quick to add that he, personally, has “a sense of humor” and likes “the alligator and swamp language. ... I think it vividly illustrates the problem, because all the people in this city who are the alligators are going to hate the swamp being drained.” Do you get it?, Newt asks. It’s like the bad people are the alligators and they LIKE swamps. But not Mr. Trump! Alas, for poor Newt, it was too late. The damage had been done.

For just this morning, Donald Trump tweeted this:




---
Hmm ... “Someone,” you say? Might that someone be aspirational lunar zookeeper Newt Gingrich? Newt certainly thinks so. Because about 20 minutes after Trump’s tweet,Newt had his own message for the world:

----

These are the slurred, dead-eyed words of a man on the brink of hell.



Did Donald Trump ask him to make this video? Might Newt simply be cowering in fear over the possibility of definitely not getting a White House role as opposed to just probably not? Or is Donald Trump cackling under the desk with a cattle prod pressed firmly against Newt’s pants-less bottom? Since when can’t know for sure, we must assume all the above.

Newt,you don’t have to do this.Your last shred of dignity may have trickled out months ago, but Callista (probably) loves you.The animals (maybe) love you.It’s not too late. Newt,you can still just walk away.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
