Don’t worry folks, your daily dose of #EndorseThis is not turning Republican. Even if it were, we wouldn’t give much airtime to Newt Gingrich, former GOP Speaker of the House whose bogus “Contract with America” was voided almost two decades ago.

Newt defends Obama’s former National Security Advisor as innocent, if career-oriented. “Someday she’s writing a memoir and she just wanted to have (the document),” he tells a stunned trio of Trumpers. “It’s happened to me.”
