Gingrich: Comedians Are So Angry at Trump, 'They Can't Be Funny'
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) said Hollywood comedians are so upset with President Trump that they are unable to be funny.
He pointed to the cases of CBS' Stephen Colbert and ABC's Jimmy Kimmel, who criticized Trump for supporting the Republicans' ObamaCare replacement bill.
Colbert slammed Trump in an obscene monologue last week.
Kimmel broke down with emotion recalling how his child was born with a heart defect and expressed how he didn't want other people to deal with such an emergency without health coverage.
Gingrich said Kimmel's story was "part of the left's mythology" that doctors will not treat uninsured or under-insured people.
"Doctors do everything [they] can to save the baby," he said, adding that they will not ask for a check first at the ER.
"Hollywood is so enraged at Donald Trump that they can't be funny," Gingrich said. "All they have is pure anger."
He said that because people like Colbert are labeled comedians, they believe the public will always find them funny.
