On "Happening Now" today, Newt Gingrich blasted Jill Stein's efforts to get a recount in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan.
He pointed out that there's not a single state in the country where a recount would change the election outcome and hand the White House to Hillary Clinton.
"Jill Stein represents sort of the nut wing of American politics," he said. "When the left loses as badly as they have at every level - from local state legislature to governor to Congress to the presidency - you begin to get this sort of nut fringe showing up."
He said the fact that the Clinton team is working with Stein shows just how "desperate and disoriented" they are.
"The whole thing is a joke. It's an expensive joke that will cost the taxpayers some money," Gingrich said. "There's nothing serious about this, except, of course, it generates news coverage."
He added that the recount push just shows that the left is "spinning out of control."
