Former Speaker and former presidential candidate Newt Gingrich took to Twitter to blast the Obama administration for its absurd shutdown actions.

We now know the order came from the White House.

Gingrich and wife had paid a visit to Mount Vernon.

And he noticed a little something on the bus turnaround.

Ludicrous! Also ludicrous? This response:

Bless your obtuse heart.


Citizens aren’t really surprised, though.

Yep. The White House confirmed Wednesday on Twitter that they are holding the World War II memorial for ransom.

Disgusting indeed.
