"I think it's a serious problem for them, and it's something that I'm considering talking about more in the near future".
But this week, which started off with his struggling in the debate, followed by repeated attacks on Machado over her weight and culminating in the late-night tweetstorm, "has hurt him", said Gingrich, and that "has shaken his own supporters".
This is all, by the way, in spite of Gingrich going ahead and defending Trump on the Machado controversy by literally saying, "You are not supposed to gain 60 pounds the year you're Miss Universe".
I mean, there are so many things wrong with the Clinton campaign that if we could find a way to get that across - she gets - you saw in the debate the other night.
"Did Crooked Hillary help disgusting (check out sex tape and past) Alicia M become a US citizen so she could use her in the debate?" read a tweet Trump posted at 5:30 a.m., one in a series of attacks on her.
Trump is also gambling he can help himself by highlighting Clinton's role in her husband's infidelities. Ever. Not if you're gonna be president of the United States. "I don't talk about it". Planned Parenthood said it showed that Trump's "misogyny knows no bounds". And Clinton said they showed anew why someone with Trump's temperament "should not be anywhere near the nuclear codes".
New Gingrich has, at times, been intellectually honest about Donald Trump, even as he is among his staunchest defenders.
Vowing to embarrass the "mainstream media and liberal elites", the Trump presidential campaign is issuing an urgent plea for donations ahead of Friday's federal financial reporting deadline.
"The so-called Commission on Presidential Debates admitted to us that the DJT audio & sound level was very bad".
Mr. Gingrich has written he believes Donald Trump won the 1st debate, but said more preparation for the 2nd match-up would be good.
Let's instead pause to appreciate the broader circumstances: Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, and Newt Gingrich linked armed this week and made a decision to collectively push Bill Clinton's adultery as a campaign issue to be used against Hillary Clinton.
"Hillary has her Wall Street money, but my father has you, the great American people".
Back at the MI rally, 74-year-old Beverly Scharf, of Shelby Township, said she was voting for Trump despite the self-created distractions. "You've got to say look, ' I'm going to beat you on jobs, I'm going to beat you on trade, I'm going to beat you on taxes'". It's in his character.
