As Twitchy told you, Donald Trump won’t be speaking at CPAC after all, citing another obligation in “Witchita, Kanasas.”
Newt Gingrich thinks Trump’s making the right call:
Trump was right to skip CPAC. The votes are in Kansas not Washington. Why give the anti-trump activists a target

.@newtgingrich You call them "anti-Trump activists". I call them conservatives.

There's a name for "anti-Trump activists," @newtgingrich.
They're called "conservatives." Maybe you'll meet one some day.

Let’s just say Gingrich’s defense of Trump isn’t going over terribly well with many conservatives:
Some of you may have admired this malleable shill, but I was never fooled. Even in 1994. https://t.co/YVJJgaKZRJ

@newtgingrich Newt, you have turned into another foolish Trump shill. I am embarrassed for you and have lost all respect

@newtgingrich Do you hear that sound? It is the sound of your credibility, along with your fingers, shrinking.

@newtgingrich as a Republican I am embarrassed that you would support a racist bully.

@newtgingrich in other words, don't appear in front of people who might disagree with you and stand for your ideas? Oh….

@newtgingrich where is your integrity?

@newtgingrich such a debasing tweet

@newtgingrich I have lost any respect I had for you left over from the 90's.

@newtgingrich That's some pathetic shit right there, Newt. Trump's a coward.

.@newtgingrich Because people should keep their commitments, Newt.

@newtgingrich Dodging the fire is not something a candidate should do. He says he is a conservative. Should be accountable for that claim.
— CryForHelp (@CryForHelp) March 4, 2016
@newtgingrich I'm old enough to remember when Newt was conservative and sided with conservatives. Why does he defend large gov Trump?

Someone's belatedly working out his "mad that they never nominated me" issues. https://t.co/2jZaeNhvbm
