NEWT GINGRICH: We have to understand how corrupt the system has become. You have a bunch of people who protect each other, who invest in each other.

And he would attract, I think, a huge audience almost overnight. So again, every time he’s made a play like this, it’s turned out he won bigger, made even more money, did even better. And my guess is in the end, he’ll fight his way through, and he’ll end up owning Twitter, and he’ll make it a very interesting, dynamic place, which the left will hate. They don’t want interesting dynamic. They want people robotically repeating what they’re told to say.
