Trump Picks Callista Gingrich to be Vatican Ambassador

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.

Newt converted to Catholicism when he married her, after which he got the church to annul a marriage that lasted 19 years and produced two children. And of course, she carried on an affair with him for more than six years while he was still married to his second wife, Marianne (with whom he cheated on his first wife, Jackie, the one he dumped while she was in the hospital battling cancer). But of course, Newt only cheated on his first two wives because he loved his country so much:

“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.
