Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich stopped by ‘Hannity’ on Tuesday night to discuss President Trump’s recent press conference regarding the deadly protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, saying the President is facing a “frenzied” news media obsessed with taking down his administration.
“I watched the media that is just so openly hostile to him. It doesn’t seem to matter anymore what he’s going to say or do and you have made this point many times on this program,” said Hannity.
“If every American has their shot at the American dream, does that help race relations in America?” he asked.
“There is an entire block of people who want to use racism and left-wing ideology to deliberately, consciously split us. Many of these are in the elite media, they’re doing it quite deliberately, and we have to have the guts to take them head on,” said the former Speaker.
“We have to point out that it was not President Trump’s policies that led four thousand people to get shot in Chicago last year. It wasn’t President Trump’s policies that have made Baltimore a nightmare in terms of people getting killed,” added Newt. “What you’ve had is a decay in this country under left-wing policies that has led to dramatic depth of poverty, dramatic collapse of the law in some inner cities, and a sense of helplessness.”
“The reason Obama was consistently wrong when he would get into these kind of problems, is he took the view of the elite media, which is just wrong,” said Gingrich. “The elite media is just in a frenzy to undermine him and if possible drive him from office in what really is the news media coup against the people of the United States.”
