The Tennessee Tea Party says goodbye to Barney Frank with a derogatory tweet. (3:38)

OF COURSE, NEWT HAS SOME STRONG

BELIEFS HE HASN'T MADE MONEY OFF

OF-- YET-- LIKE HIS HATRED OF

BARNEY FRANK.

>> IF YOU PUT PEOPLE IN JAIL YOU

OUGHT TO START WITH BARNEY FRANK

GO BACK AND LOOK AT THE

LOBBYISTS HE WAS CLOSE TO AT --

AT FREDDIE MAC.

>> STEPHEN: YEAH, STRING HIM

UP!

BARNEY FRANK WAS CLOSE TO THE

LOBBYISTS AT FREDDIE MAC, AND

GINGRICH SHOULD KNOW BECAUSE

THOSE LOBBYISTS GAVE NEWT

$1.6 MILLION DOLLARS.

BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN NEWT WAS

CLOSE TO THEM.

I'M SURE HE WAITED UNTIL THEY

LEFT BEFORE HE PICKED UP THE

BROWN PAPER BAG FULL OF MONEY.

[ LAUGHTER ]

AND I'D SAY NEWT HAS WON THIS

FIGHT, BECAUSE ON MONDAY

CONGRESSMAN FRANK ANNOUNCED HIS

RETIREMENT.

THE MAN IS A LION OF THE LIBERAL

ESTABLISHMENT.

FROM THE LOOKS OF HIM, POSSIBLY

THE COWARDLY LION.

[ LAUGHTER ]

EVEN I HAVE TO ADMIT

THOUGH THERE HAVE BEEN SOME

BRAVE MOMENTS FOR THIS FRIEND OF

DOROTHY.

IN 1987 FRANK BECAME THE FIRST

OPENLY GAY CONGRESSMAN OTHER

THAN ALL THE FOUNDING FATHERS.

[ LAUGHTER ]

OF COURSE --

OF COURSE, WHENEVER A TITAN OF

WASHINGTON STEPS ASIDE, THE

TRIBUTES ROLL IN.

LIKE THIS ONE FROM BILL

O'REILLY.

>> IF YOU CHALLENGE FRANK, HE'S

IN YOUR FACE, IF YOU POINT OUT

HIS FAILURES, HE DENIES THEM.

IF YOU DISAGREE WITH HIM ON

ANYTHING, YOU'RE A MORON.

>> STEPHEN: HIGH PRAISE FROM

PAPA BEAR.

IT'S LIKE HE'S DESCRIBING

HIMSELF.

[ LAUGHTER ]

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

OF COURSE, NOT ALL REMARKS WERE

POSITIVE, LIKE THIS TWEET POSTED

BY THE TENNESSEE TEA PARTY:

>> GOOD RIDDANCE YOU PERVERTED

SODOMITE PIECE OF (BLEEP).

>> STEPHEN: SOUNDS HARSH, BUT

IN TENNESSEE, THAT'S THE STATE

MOTTO.

[ LAUGHTER ]

NOW, THE PRESIDENT OF THE

TENNESSEE TEA PARTY TAMI

KILMARX, QUICKLY TOOK DOWN THE

TWEET, SAYING IT WAS POSTED

WITHOUT HER KNOWLEDGE, AND

THOROUGHLY APOLOGIZED ON

FACEBOOK, BY SAYING:

"WHILE I PRIVATELY AND INWARDLY

I MAY AGREE WITH THE COMMENTARY,

IT IS COMPLETELY IRRESPONSIBLE

FOR ANY ONE OF US TO WRITE THESE

KINDS OF COMMENTARIES."

>> STEPHEN: YES, IT'S FINE TO

AGREE THAT BARNEY FRANK IS A

PERVERTED SODOMITE PIECE OF

(BLEEP) BUT DON'T SAY IT OUT

LOUD.

[ LAUGHTER ]

JUST LIKE WHEN A GAY GUY WALKS

INTO A RESTAURANT YOU DON'T

SCREAM, "HIDE YOUR CHILDREN!

HE'S LOOKING FOR NEW MEAT."

YOU JUST COVER YOUR YOUNG ONE

WITH A COAT UNTIL DANGER PASSES.

RIGHT?

I'M RIGHT.

WE HAVE TO BE TACTFUL.

I THINK KILMARX GAVE THE

APPROPRIATE RESPONSE, SO-- LET'S

TWEET HERE IT'S IRRESPONSIBLE TO

SAY "THIS PIC OF TAMI KILMARX IS

WHY BARNEY FRANK IS GAY."

[ LAUGHTER ]

HASHTAG, THOUGH I PRIVATELY AND

INWARDLY AGREE.

[ LAUGHTER ]

NOW,I DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT

FUTURE HOLDS FOR FRANK,

ESPECIALLY SINCE HE HAS PLEDGED:

"I WILL NEITHER BE A LOBBYIST

NOR A HISTORIAN."

FOR AN EX-CONGRESSMAN, THAT ONLY

LEAVES FELON OR FULLY-CLOTHED

EXOTIC DANCER.
