Election HQ Gingrich: If The Left ‘Can’t Smear Trump, They’re Going To Lose’
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Democratic House Caucus Chairman Xavier Becerra discussed the presidential election on Fox News Sunday.
Regarding Hillary Clinton calling half of Donald Trump supporters a “basket of deplorables”, Becerra noted Clinton had offered an apology clarifying that she was being “generalistic”.
“There are some people [that reportedly support Trump] who are deplorable: white supremacists, the [former KKK leader] David Dukes of the world,” he said. “He is deplorable.”
Gingrich disagreed: “Hillary’s beginning to fall apart,” he told Chris Wallace, “she comes out of a terrible National Security Forum [last week]—the Left had to attack [moderator] Matt Lauer because they couldn’t believe Hillary did that badly,” he said.
“Then she says ISIS is praying for Trump to win,” Gingrich said, “Romney got hammered for [talking about the] 47 percent who are dependent on government.”
“Let’s get Sheriff [David] Clarke, an African-American sheriff in Milwaukee—he can debate her on racism.”
“They need to yell racist…If they can’t smear Trump, they are going to lose,” Gingrich said of Clinton surrogates.
