Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is no longer a contributor to Fox News, the network announced Tuesday.
“Fox News Channel has mutually agreed to suspend its contributor agreement with Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich effective immediately,” said a statement from Jay Wallace, the network’s executive vice president of news. “Due to the intense media speculation about Gingrich’s potential selection as Donald Trump’s vice presidential candidate, we felt it best to halt his contributor role on the network to avoid all conflicts of interest that may arise.”
Rachel Maddow pointed out on her show last night that when a Republican loses his job on Fox News that it typically indicates that they are about to launch a campaign for political office.
So does this prove that Gingrich is the guy for Trump?
I have no idea.
Nothing about Donald Trump makes any kind of sense, therefore I make no predictions.
However what we do know is that the other two names that have been bandied about recently are Mike Pence..
|Zzzz, okay does anybody else have trouble staying awake while looking a a picture of Mike Pence?|
and Chris Christie.
And since he recently said that he wants an attack dog for a VP, that would seem to put Chris Christie and his mangina in the front of the pack.
