Donald Trump has decided to nominate Callista Gingrich, third wife of Newt, to be ambassador to the Vatican. She has no experience at all in diplomacy, like virtually everyone else Trump has nominated for such positions. But she’s Catholic, which is apparently all that matters.
Callista Gingrich, the wife of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, is the preferred nominee to be the next ambassador to the Vatican.
The White House hopes to announce her nomination before President Donald Trump meets with Pope Francis on May 24 in Rome.
The decision to nominate Gingrich has been made, but the announcement has taken longer than expected pending approval from the Office of Government Ethics, an administration official said.
The White House hopes to formally nominate Gingrich as soon as this week.
“There’s no question at times in my life, partially driven by how passionately I felt about this country, that I worked too hard and things happened in my life that were not appropriate.”
Such a patriot. And he’s proud to be an American, where at least he knows he’s free to be a dishonest, hypocritical douchebag who cheats on his wives and still gets to run for president on a family values platform.
