Anderson Cooper thinks Gingrich is a hypocrite
Anderson Cooper is blasting Newt Gingrich for a recent comment that Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly is ‘obsessed with sex.’
On his nightly CNN show Wednesday, The Silver Fox took aim at the former speaker of the US House of Representatives.
‘For Newt Gingrich to accuse Megyn Kelly of being fascinated by sex, this is a guy who is on his third marriage, cheated on his first two wives and was having an affair when he was impeaching Bill Clinton,’ Cooper said.
When a Gingrich defender began to talk Cooper interjected: ‘For a man like him with his record on relationships, to accuse Megyn Kelly of being fascinated by sex just seems a particular ironic (statement).’
Despite the criticism, Gingrich earned praise for his comments from Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump who was confronted by Kelly at a debate last year on his treatment of women.
During a campaign appearance Trump said Gingrich gave ‘an amazing interview.’
