Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich stopped by ‘Hannity’ on Monday night, blasting Hillary Clinton and other left-wing activists for using race as a “deliberate political weapon” to further divide the country.
Gingrich was commenting on remarks Clinton made earlier Monday, where she smeared the President for intentionally “attacking black athletes” with his tweets regarding the NFL.
“He never said a thing about race. Isn’t this about respect for the anthem, the flag, and the men and women in the military that fought and died?” asked Sean.
“Let me say, first of all, Hillary Clinton is a racist demagogue. Let’s be blunt, let’s be straight about this. She can’t possibly debate on the merits of any of the things we’re talking about,” said Newt.
“She is using racism as a deliberate weapon. She is dividing the country on racial grounds as a deliberate political weapon in exactly the model of modern liberalism that can’t possibly survive if they don’t constantly go back to racism. I’m talking about their racism,” he added.
“Donald Trump said nothing that had anything to do about race. He talked about defending the flag, defending our national anthem. How you take that and translate it into a racial attack tells you everything you need to know about the sickness of the modern left and the sickness of the Democratic party,” said the former Speaker.
“They cannot survive if they can’t constantly yell ‘race,’ and as a result they have become one of the most divisive, one of the most destructive forces in America today,” he added.
