Fans of former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R) may have been a tad surprised when they saw him tweet early this morning morning that he's had a change of heart and now supports President Obama's foreign policy:
After a lot of thought i have changed my mind. President Obama has a strong, solid, thoughtful foreign policy we should all support.— Newt Gingrich (@newtgingrich) April 1, 2015
...but never fear, Gingrich was simply getting a (very) early start on this year's April Fools' Day pranks.
The previous tweet about President Obama's foreign policy is a sign it is April Fool's day.— Newt Gingrich (@newtgingrich) April 1, 2015
Gingrich joins many other politicians who have used April Fools' Day to make a fake announcement. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) teased in a tweet that sounded vaguely like a declaration of a presidential run...that wound up being an announcement of support for the University of Wisconsin's Men's Basketball team in their upcoming game in the NCAA Final Four.
Happy April Fools! Trust nobody.
