Newt Gingrich needs a Sister Souljah moment if he wants to undo the damage of criticizing a fellow Republican. (2:27)

MINT AND A PUNCH IN THE NUTS.

IT WAS NOT A GOOD DAY.

FOR MORE WE'RE JOINED BY

SAMANTHA BEE.

SAM, REPUBLICANS ARE OUTRAGED AT

HIM.

DEMOCRATS ARE SPRINKLING HIM

WITH GLITTER.

[LAUGHTER]

HOW BAD IS THIS FOR NEWT

GINGRICH?

>> WELL, JON, IT'S BAD.

IT IS REAL BAD.

ON THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE

VIABILITY SCALE IT'S NOT JUST

JOHN KERRY'S I LOOK LIKE A SPERM

MOMENT, IT'S A FULL-ON HOWARD

DEAN.

>> WHOOOAHHH!

>> PACK IT IN, NEWT.

IT WAS A GOOD RUN.

>>.

>> Jon: DON'T YOU THINK HE CAN

COME BACK FROM THIS?

>> NO NEW YORK CITY, HE

CRITICIZED A FELLOW REPUBLICAN.

IF HE WANTS TO UNDO THAT KIND OF

DAMAGE HE NEEDS A SISTER SOULJA

MOMENT.

>> Jon: ISN'T THAT WHEN A

DEMOCRAT DISTANCES HIMSELF FROM

HIS BASE.

>> EVERY DEMOCRAT HAS TO HAVE

ONE LIKE WHEN OBAMA EXTENDED THE

BUSH CATS.

>> IS THIS HIS SISTER SOULJA

MOMENT.

WHEN BILL CLINTON TOOK ON THAT

RAP SINGER IN 1992 HE WAS TRYING

TO SAY I'M A DIFFERENT TYPE OF

DEMOCRAT, I'M NOT GOING TO COW

TOW TO THIS?

>> THAT'S WHAT NEWT GINGRICH

NEEDS TO GO THAT NOW.

>> Jon: THAT WAS WHAT HE WAS

DOING WITH THE RYAN STATEMENT

CRITICIZING THE EXTREMISM OF IT.

>> FOR DEMOCRATS IT'S ABOUT

DISTANCING THEMSELVES FROM THE

LEFT.

FOR THE REPUBLICANS IT'S ABOUT

DISTANCING THEM SELF-FROM THE

LEFT.

AS FAR AS PUNDITS ARE CONCERNED

NO MATTER WHAT NOMINATION YOU

ARE SEEKING, IT'S IMPORTANT TO

DISTANCE YOURSELF FROM THE LEFT.

>> Jon: RYAN'S MEDICARE PLAN

IS UNPOPULAR.

PEOPLE DO NOT LIKE IT.

IN THIS CASE THE CENTER IS

AGAINST IT.

>> RIGHT, I GUESS I SEE WHERE

YOU ARE GOING WITH THIS.

IT'S AN INTERESTING POINT.

[LAUGHTER]

>> Jon: SAM, WHAT THE HELL WAS

THAT?

>> I JUST KIND OF THOUGHT THAT

ONE OF US WOULD DISAPPEAR.

[LAUGHTER]

SHOULD I JUST GO.
