While traveling in Europe, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich spoke with reporters and took the opportunity to UNLOAD on the American press and it’s treatment of President Trump.
He said that he’s infuriated by the way the media is treating Trump and said that the President should ‘close down the White House press briefing room,’ banish reporters to Starbucks and that Sean Spicer should take questions from everyday Americans!
How different would our country be right now if the Republicans who we elected to office took the opportunity to stand up for Trump like this! But no.. they just roll over and play dead.
It turns out Newt wasn’t finished, though. From the Daily Mail:
‘I am personally offended by the American news media. I think it is destructive and disgusting. It is a danger to the country right now,’ Gingrich told Politico. ‘Just say to American people, you get to choose’.
And he continued:
‘There are people here who read this crap and thinks we should be afraid. You have a national defense team of Mattis, Kelly and Tillerson. This is the best team since Eisenhower,’ he said.
‘These people around the world read you as though you’re real,’ he said. ‘The damage the news media is doing to the United States is despicable.’
BULLSEYE! How much time and effort is Trump and his team having to devote to this manufactured crisis while countries like North Korea are literally threatening to start World War III?!
Now maybe some Republicans in Congress will catch this fever, and Trump will finally be able to start doing what we elected him to do!
Maybe.. but I wouldn’t hold my breath!
What do you think? Do you agree with Newt’s comments about the press?
