LAS VEGAS, Nevada — Shortly before appearing alongside Donald Trump at a Las Vegas fundraiser for Mitt Romney, former presidential candidate Newt Gingrich weighed in on The Donald’s CNN rant earlier Tuesday.

Waiting in the lobby of the Renaissance hotel for a car to take him to the fundraiser, Gingrich was approached by a BuzzFeed reporter, who suggested the event was bound to be exciting with so much star power.
