Newt Gingrich has called Hillary Clinton a “bitch,” Gingrich’s mother told CBS News in an interview.
Kathleen Gingrich’s reported comment came during a Connie Chung interview with the family of the Georgia Republican at their home in Dauphin, Pa.
A CBS transcript released Tuesday includes the following exchange:
Chung: Mrs. Gingrich, what has Newt told you about President Clinton?
Kathleen Gingrich: Nothing and I can’t tell you what he said about Hillary.
Chung: You can’t.
Kathleen Gingrich: I can’t.
Chung: Why don’t you just whisper it to me, just between you and me.
Kathleen Gingrich: “She’s a bitch.” About the only thing he ever said about her. I think they had some meeting, you know, and she takes over.
Chung: She does?
Kathleen Gingrich: Oh, yeah, but with Newty there, she can’t.
