Democrats Protest Trump’s SOTU, Newt Gingrich Goes On Live TV & Rubs Salt In Their Wounds

The Democrats have been hard at work protesting President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address this week, even though he has yet to deliver his remarks. It would seem odd to be so against a speech which you haven’t heard, but no one ever accused a liberal of having much common sense. As those on the left continued to whine about the president’s upcoming address, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich went on live television just to rub salt in their wounds.

While some Democrats in Congress have done their best to turn this year’s SOTU into a political charade by planning to fill the balcony with so-called “Dreamers,” other representatives have refused to attend the annual speech altogether. Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson, for example, said on Monday that she would not be “honoring” President Trump with her presence. I’m sure he doesn’t mind, as there isn’t much honor in her presence, to begin with.

Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson won’t be attending President Trump’s first State of the Union address Tuesday because she doesn’t think he deserves to be honored.

Indeed, everyone seems to be finding their own “creative” way to stick it to the president, nevermind the fact that he couldn’t care less about their petty political stunts, as he’s got more important things to worry about, like terrorism and North Korea and free trade.

In the midst of all this political fodder, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich doubled down on his faith in President Donald Trump and mocked Hillary Clinton for appearing in a comedy sketch at the Grammy Awards on Sunday.

“[Trump’s] not going to give up putting America first,” Gingrich said Monday on Fox & Friends. “He’s not going to give up fighting for small business, fighting for deregulation, fighting for lower taxes. But I think he has learned over the last year,” he continued.

“He’s had a year now to be president,” added Gingrich. “He’s clearly learned a lot of lessons. There’s no reason for him to know coming into office, the differences between a billionaire in business and being the President of the United States. I always said he is a very smart guy. He didn’t get to be that wealthy by being stupid. He didn’t beat 16 Republicans in the primaries by being stupid.”

Then, just to twist the knife, Gingrich took a brilliant shot at Hillary Clinton and all of her cronies. “Just think about this weekend, Hillary Clinton on TV sadly reading out of a weird book, while Donald Trump is preparing a state of the union,” he said. “That’s not a world anybody on the left thought was possible. And so, I think he can afford to be generous and say, let’s find a way to work together.”

Newt Gingrich was referring, of course, to the cameo appearance Hillary Clinton made at the Grammys over the weekend.

How pathetic. I wonder what Hillary Clinton will be doing as President Donald Trump addresses the nation which he has greatly improved over the past year. Getting drunk? Crying on Huma Abedin’s shoulder? Perhaps both. Any way you slice it, the situation is pretty darn tragic for her, but she deserves every bit of it.
