‘Tweeting while intoxicated?’: Newt Gingrich mocked for crazy tweet on ‘Muller’ and ‘Trumpo’ riddled with typos
"Are you tweeting while intoxicated?"
That was the question former National Security Advisor and former UN Ambassador Susan Rice posed to Newt Gingrich, after he posted a strange and wholly false tweet Wednesday.

Not only are the four typos and an extra space thrown in, but Gingrich is just plain wrong.

And his claim that "If not guilty Trump is innocent," is just wholly false.
Ambassador Rice wasn't the only one mocking and chastising Gingrich. Take a look:

Robert Muller is clearly far more ethical than Ken Starr... and also no one cares what you have to say Newt. https://t.co/IkBsXYA3W6— Tom D'Angora #BlackLivesMatter (@Tom D'Angora #BlackLivesMatter) 1559158488.0
