Plouffe: Newt’s Trayvon Remarks ‘Reprehensible,’ ‘Reckless’

White House senior adviser David Plouffe on Sunday tore into Newt Gingrich’s response to President Obama’s remarks about Trayvon Martin.

“Those comments are reprehensible,” Plouffe said on ABC’s This Week. “Speaker Gingrich is clearly in the last throes of his political career. And you know, you can make a decision whether to go out with some shred of dignity or say these irresponsible, reckless things, and he’s clearly chosen the latter path, and that’s unfortunate for the country.”
