Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on Thursday issued an effective public apology for suggesting earlier in the week that President-elect Donald Trump is past the phrase “drain the swamp,” a reference to stamping out Washington, D.C., corruption and influence-peddling.

“I want to report that I made a big boo-boo,” Mr. Gingrich said in a video posted to his Facebook page. “I talked this morning with President-elect Donald Trump, and he reminded me: He likes draining the swamp,” Mr. Gingrich said. “I mischaracterized it the other day. He intends to drain the swamp.” “He even describes it as DTS,” Mr. Gingrich said.

“I want all of you to know: I goofed,” he said. “Draining the swamp is in. The alligators should be worried, and you’ll hear me write more about alligators and the swamp.”
Mr. Trump himself also issued a public reminder on his Twitter feed Thursday that he will continually be trying to “DTS.”

It's to the point where it is difficult to keep up with all the attempts to trash Trump. Gingrich's remarks made all kinds of headlines last week. I wonder if his retraction will.

Well, the powers that be might put it on MSNBC. That will give them cover to those who say retractions are never done; and it will ensure (since it's MSNBC) that only about a dozen people will see it.

“He even describes it as DTS,” Mr. Gingrich said.


The Donald might want to reconsider using those initials. Potentially they could have some negative things attached. Just sayin . . .
