The White (Supremacist) House announced that delusional con man Donald "Rump" Trump plans to nominate Callista "Ms. Poot" Gingrich as the ambassador to the Vatican. She is the unfortunate spouse of right-wing gasbag and disgraced former Speaker of the House Newt "Poot" Gingrich.
Ms. Poot met and began a 6-year extramarital affair with Poot while he was still married to his second wife, Marianne, a fact she's acknowledged, per Rolling Stone:
"Callista, whom the former colleague remembers as a 'small-town girl from Wisconsin' would discuss her relationship with Gingrich at the office. 'She was not veiled about it,' he says. Without explicitly saying, 'Yes I'm having an affair with Newt,' Callista would say things like, 'Obviously you're aware of the relationship I have,' the ex-staffer recalls." (emphasis added)Yes, "obviously" ("Calista, wipe your chin!"). Recently, she's been running a Gingrichian propaganda multimedia mill that produces films, books and other media aimed at rewriting history from a wingnut perspective.
No doubt the Vatican, which has had its own moral issues to grapple with of late, will accept Ms. Poot's "credentials" along with her tawdry background. The Church often overlooks moral failings if the sinner is sufficiently well-connected or wealthy.
