Gingrich Sends Blistering Message to Dems
During the lead-up to President Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremony, the media made much ado about the dozens of House Democrats who were boycotting the event for partisan reasons.
While the punditry breathlessly reported each new addition to the progressive pity party, in the end it really didn’t matter, as Trump’s swearing-in went off without a hitch and nobody really even noticed that a number of Democrat lawmakers weren’t there to witness the historic event.
In an appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” with host Maria Bartiromo, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich addressed the topic of the absent Dems, among other issues, and utterly ripped them apart in typical fashion.
“The 70 Democrats who didn’t go to the inauguration were neither missed nor deeply regretted, and nobody, frankly, cared,” Gingrich said. “And if they feel better about it, good for them.”
Gingrich also touched on the stall tactics being used by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to delay consent votes on Trump’s cabinet picks, calling such a move “unconscionable” when compared with how Republicans worked quickly to approve seven of President Barack Obama’s appointees on the very first day.
