Newt Gingrich Compares Nancy Pelosi to Marie Antoinette in Fox News Editorial Piece


Nancy Pelosi is on thin ice, if Newt Gingrich has anything to say about it.

In a scathing editorial piece published on Fox News, Gingrich compared Pelosi to Marie Antoinette, saying that she is enjoying lavish luxuries while ignoring the needs to desperate people.

Marie Antoinette was the queen of France in the 1700’s. 

When she found out her people were hungry, she was credited with saying, “Let them eat cake.”

Antoinette was later beheaded at the age of 37 years old as the French Revolution took hold.

In his piece, Gingrich stresses that he has served with three Democratic speakers of the House, but that none were nearly as tone-deaf as Nancy Pelosi.
