Gingrich: ‘Hysteria of the Left’ over Trump ‘Is Just Going to Get Worse’
GINGRICH: "Look. I think the hysteria of the left is just going to get worse and worse all summer, the Post is typical of that. They can somehow swallow 2,000 confidential and classified emails by Hillary Clinton, they can swallow $2 billion at the Clinton Foundation, they can swallow all kinds of conflict with Hillary, because after all she is on the left, and she is of the true faith.
It is going to get worse, I predict, when it begins to sink in that Trump is going to be prepared to go into the African-American community to actually go into neighborhoods, that Democrats think are closed to Republicans, you had someone the other day on MSNBC said he shouldn’t campaign in Chicago or St. Louis or Cleveland because of the history of racially sensitive shootings. Now the idea that an American candidate for the American presidency has any neighborhood they don’t go into shows you just how far the left has gone towards thinking it owns the country.
The Washington Post is part of the left, unfortunately. That editorial represents accurately the hysteria of the left...
I think Donald Trump actually has a slogan “Make America Great Again,” which could apply to every American. I think Trump, in Southside Chicago, saying Make America Great Again means your children shouldn’t be killed, your schools should actually work, there should be jobs in your neighborhood.
I think that would shatter the fabric of the Democratic Party, and expose the degree to which they have exploited poor people without actually helping them. I think it would be very healthy for America.
I think it would lead to Madison, Wisconsin-scale opposition by the left, remember Scott Walker had some 80 threats — his wife got a note saying he may become a widow, if Governor Walker continued to implement his reforms... it was hysterical.
And I think they have a real likelihood of losing this year."
