4TH GRADERS EVERYWHERE RESENT THAT SLUR:

Closed-Door Meeting's Recording Reveals Newt Gingrich's Real Thoughts About Donald Trump (ROBERT FATURECHI, JUL. 14, 2016, ProPublica)

Newt Gingrich, a leading candidate to be Donald Trump's running mate, told Republicans at a closed-door meeting earlier this year that Trump is not a conservative, speaks to voters "at the lowest level of any candidate in either party," and could lose in a landslide if he didn't significantly change his approach to campaigning.

Gingrich suggested Trump's move from campaigning to governing would be challenging: "How we make the transition from, you know, language for fourth graders to real policy, I don't know."

His comments came in a February speech in Washington to the Republican State Leadership Committee, months before he began angling to become Trump's vice presidential choice.
