[VIDEO] Newt Points Out The Moment, Years Ago, When Tulsi Knew The Dem Party Had Turned “Weird”

When something big happens in politics, the first person you should turn to for insight into what’s really going on is none other than the former Speaker of The House, Newt Gingrich. Newt always has his finger on the pulse of what’s really happening. So, when former Dem, Tulsi Gabbard announced she was leaving the crazy Dem Party, Newt was quick to respond and explain why she was leaving and how this isn’t an isolated incident.

Bizpacreview reported that Gingrich described Tulsi as an “independent maverick” who has “spoken her own mind.”

The Army National Guard officer announced her intentions Tuesday on Twitter:

“I believe in a government that is of, by, and for the people. Unfortunately, today’s Democratic Party does not. Instead, it stands for a government of, by, and for the powerful elite. I’m calling on my fellow common sense independent-minded Democrats to join me in leaving the Democratic Party. If you can no longer stomach the direction that so-called woke Democratic Party ideologues are taking our country, I invite you to join me.”

Gingrich remarked, “I think Tulsi is somebody who has always spoken her own mind. She’s always been sort of an independent maverick. And I think when she ran for president, she realized how really isolated she was from the great majority of the Democratic Party, which is now, frankly, a pretty weird party.”

“We saw the same thing happen in a slightly different way in Philadelphia last week, where the former deputy mayor, a Democrat, endorsed Dr. Oz for the U.S. Senate and said that [John] Fetterman is just so crazy on crime and so pro-criminal, he couldn’t be for him, Gingrich continued. “So I think you’re seeing this drift, and we’ve certainly seen among Latinos a huge drift towards the Republican Party as they’re driven away by the weirder policies of the Democratic Party.”

Along those same lines, Gingrich and co-host Steve Doocy discussed the ongoing exodus from Democrat-led states with onerous restrictions on businesses and high tax rates such as California and New York.

“Texas and Florida both gained over 3,000 new workers under the age of 35 earning $100,000 per year. People who are making money want to keep as much as possible, and so they go to places like Texas or Florida where there is no state income tax,” Doocy began.

Gingrich responded, “I think you are right. First of all, it’s just a dollars and cents practicality. If you are a high-income earner, the difference in the taxes you pay in Florida or Texas compared to New York or California or Illinois, which is another state which is losing people, it pays for the move for the first three or four months. Second, the crime issue and the homeless issue in places like New York and Los Angeles and San Francisco is so horrendous that people literally are frightened. And you are seeing, I think, a steady departure of people. I saw last month 9,000 New Yorkers changed their license plates to Florida – 9,000 in a month.”

“So I think this hemorrhage – bad policies lead to a bad quality of life, which in a free society, leads people to move,” he concluded.


There’s nobody who is more “dialed-in” on politics today than Newt. Unlike Joe, who is stuck in 90s politics, Newt has evolved with the changing times and he really “gets it” and has embraced the changes. I love this guy. I told you all once, about how I met him when I lived in Vegas. He is such a humble, kind, and warm person. I can’t say enough good things about Newt.

And I sincerely hope that President Trump brings him on his team this time around — trust me, it’d be a very smart move. President Trump needs loyalty around him, more than anything else.
