Former presidential contender Newt Gingrich has found a similarity between former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and reality television starlet Kim Kardashian: Neither dances well in front of others.

Mr. Gingrich found the likeness while discussing on CNN’s “Crossfire” former President Bill Clinton’s defense of his wife and her comments that the family was “dead broke” when they exited the White House.

“You have to understand the problem Bill Clinton has,” Mr. Gingrich said, Politico reported. “Bill is to politics what Fred Astaire is to dancing — he is just automatically amazing and he wants to have Ginger Rogers out there dancing. Instead [With Hillary], it’s a little bit like watching Kim Kardashian get kicked off the stage by Prince because she couldn’t dance.”

He was referring to a 2011 concert in New York City during which the pop star requested Mrs. Kardashian’s presence on his Madison Square Garden stage, Politico reported. She walked on stage but failed to dance, and for that, Prince yelled at her: “Get off the stage!”


In similar fashion, here comes Mrs. Clinton — all talk, no talented moves, Mr. Gingrich said.

“I think there’s a big problem because I don’t think, as a candidate, she dances very well,” he said.
