Chris Matthews on Newt Gingrich: ‘He’s Not a Human Being, He’s a Gaseous State’

(By Tiffany Gabbay, The Blaze) - Former speaker of the house and GOP presidential contender Newt Gingrich has been called many things by MSNBC host Chris Matthews during his time in the political spotlight, but a “gaseous state” is indeed a new one.

To kick-off his latest tirade, Matthews played a clip of Gingrich in which he stated:

What you have today is that the rich in Wall Street and the powerful at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac had so many politicians beholding to them that in fact nobody was going to check them. And so they got away with things that were absolute baloney. It’s a tragedy.

To which Matthews blasted, “He’s [Gingrich] not a human being, he’s a gaseous state. Isn’t he? I mean Joan, this is like a gaseous state around the world. I mean, this is Newtism.”
