Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says President Joe Biden is the “second worst president” in the history of the United States.
According to Fox News, the well-known Republican believes that Biden is completely out of touch with what Americans need, and is making the kind of mistakes that will cost the nation in the long run.
Gingrich made his comments during an interview on Jesse Watters Primetime.
In addition to the danger that Biden is allegedly putting the nation in, Gingrich discussed potential motivation, saying Biden likely has “no idea” what is going on around him.
“I think it’s not fair to say that he’s the worst president. I think Buchanan, who got us into the Civil War, still has that title,” Gingrich said.
“But it would be fair to say that Biden may be the second-worst president in American history, at least in terms of his destructive effect.”
Gingrich added: “You know, my wife … went out Saturday, filled up her car, came home in a state of shock. She paid $104.50 to fill up her car.”
“Now, I don’t care how often Joe Biden goes on comedy shows, and I understand he’ll be on a comedy show Wednesday night.”
The former House speaker went on to talk about how much he believed the president was likely not aware of what was happening in the White House.
“First of all, it’s not funny when you can’t find infant formula and you can’t pay for gas and you can’t afford food and crime’s going up in your city,” Gingrich said.
“But second, that’s the real world the White House doesn’t understand. You know, you’re not eating in the White House mess and you don’t have Air Force One taking you somewhere.”
He added: “The world’s gotten to be very expensive and very dangerous. And Biden seems to have no clue about what’s going on around him.”
