Twitter erupted into mockery after Newt Gingrich’s jump-off turned wife, Callista Gingrich, was named as Trump’s pick for ambassador to the Vatican.
According to media reports, she is waiting on the completion of an ethics investigation. Um, let me just bite my tongue on this one. This entire administration is a joke.
Reaction on Twitter:
Callista Gingrich, who had a 6 year long affair to fmr speaker Gingrich named Ambassador to the Vatican. Irony?

Every day Trump debases his "Christian" base-sending Newt's mistress "Callista Gingrich" to Vatican -God will Smite Trump.

I hope Callista Gingrich spends most of her time in the confessional box at the Vatican.

After GOP elected Donald Trump president, now Callista Gingrich as Amb. to Vatican, let us never hear again about "protecting marriage."

@realDonaldTrump is sending Callista Gingrich, woman who gave BJs to her married boss in cars, as US envoy to the Vatican? WTF?
