Gingrich Straightforward Body Language Calling CNN "Despicable"and Lack His of Deception When In Denying Allegations
Gingrich won over a lot more voters in South Carolina by telling it like it is and speaking the truth against CNN and not candy coating it. He called them “despicable” as he pointed his finger and spoke his mind. In this day and age people respect straightforward talk and saying it like it is. So that is why Newt was so well received.
After his ex wife Marianne went on camera a day earlier to say how he cheated on her and wanted an open marriage, CNN’s first question to him was about her allegations. Gingrich chastised CNN Chief National Correspondent John King for asking that as a first question in a Presidential debate . Hegot even angrier when King tried to pawn off the reporting of the story on another network.
His response elicited loud applause from the audience as they showed their disapproval of CNN’s questioning.If you would ask most ex spouses or ex boyfriends and girlfriends about a sour relationship very few would have good things to say. So one cannot take as gospel what either side says. It takes two to have a relationship and obviously something went terribly wrong in their communication and in their relationship.
Gingrich denied the allegations and reported that his daughters contacted ABC to pull the story. But the low point was when King tried to cover his back andf protect his network by saying that they werent the ones to first report the story.
The fact that they are perpetuating the story by asking the question says it all . The public is not dumb and not buying the “blame game” so they look clean.Newt in essence busted them and called them out and people loved it!
Relationships fail as people change and communication disintegrates. The heartbreak can be unbearable- worse than any possible physical pain. No one Knows what happened in Newt’s and Marianne’s relationship except them. They obviously have different perspectives . With time their perceptions and perspectives often take on a whole new meaning, especially if one of the parties has done better than the other, healthwise, careerwise,finacialLy or socially.
On the other hand we as voters do have a right to know all sides (the good and the bad) of our candidates and give the ma chance to adresss allegations to see if they are tellingt he truth or not.
In my view, Gingrich did not show any signals of deception when he denied the allegations made by his ex wife, He looked confident and straightforward as he confidently denied what was said about him. There was no leakage of deceptive tells and he spoke in a voice indicative of someone telling the truth. He did not deny that he had an affair when he initially listened to the question as she shook his head yes in agreement as John King made a statement about this before asking his question. Gingrich’s body language confirmed that he did indeed have an affair and was not denying it. But he was denying the allegations about an open marriage.
