Charles Krauthammer On Newt Gingrich: ‘He’s Done, It’s Over’

(By Matt Schneider, Mediaite) - As the field of Republican candidates continues to be shaken up by news of potential candidates dropping out, and current candidates saying things that are “mind-boggling,” Charles Krauthammer decided to weigh in with some blunt commentary on both Donald Trump and Newt Gingrich.

Krauthammer quickly disposed of Trump and his “fifteen minutes” saying “Trump obviously doesn’t matter and never did.” Instead, he turned his attention to Newt and addressed his “contradictory” and “incoherent” statements about the individual mandate portion of universal healthcare and the language he used to describe the budget plan put forth by Republican Congressman Paul Ryan. Krauthammer confidently declared about Newt:

Charles Krauthammer: “This is a big deal. He’s done. He didn’t have a big chance from the beginning, but now it’s over. . . . He won’t recover.”
