On Tuesday’s episode of “The View,” Joy ‘Big Mouth’ Behar, along with the panel of cackling co-hosts, tried to insinuate that President Donald Trump is some kind of idiot. However, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich promptly made Joy and her cronies regret it — big time.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared on “The View” on Tuesday, where co-host Meghan McCain asked him what he believes to be the most misunderstood thing about President Donald Trump. Gingrich was on the show to promote his latest book, Trump’s America: The Truth about Our Nation’s Great Comeback.
“The most misunderstood thing is that he’s extraordinarily smart,” said Gingrich. “This is a guy who made billions of dollars, beat 16 people for the nomination, beat Hillary Clinton on a billion-dollar campaign. This is a guy who has enormous intelligence, and the biggest part of that is, on little things, he’s totally unpredictable, sometimes self-destructive,” he added.
“On big things, he’s very consistent. He does what he says. He sticks at it month after month. And, I think we get confused in part because the news media picks up all the small things,” said Gingrich. “Frankly, part of the purpose I think every morning of his tweets is to remind liberals, he’s still here. He knows it drives them crazy. They wake up in the morning, the first thing they see is a tweet by Trump, they go, ‘Oh, my God, he’s still president.’”
Liberals love to peg Trump as an idiot, much the same way they did when George W. Bush was in office. Indeed, it seems to be a reoccurring page from their playbook. However, nothing could be further from the truth. If Trump were an idiot, we wouldn’t have the lowest unemployment rate on record. If Trump were an idiot, foreign companies would not be investing in America once again.
According to The Daily Caller, earlier in the segment, Gingrich praised Trump for boosting the economy and for the record-low black unemployment numbers, saying, “I think the best thing is the economy, I think the fact that we have the lowest black unemployment in history…”
Host Sunny Hostin took issue with this, interjecting to ask, “Can he take credit for that? Isn’t that Obama’s doing?”
Gingrich, however, came prepared to back his statement up with facts. “I think this quarter we will have more than twice the economic growth rate of any quarter in 8 years of Obama,” he responded.
But, Hostin wasn’t letting it go. “Because he’s been set up! He was given a gift, Newt!” she protested.
“It’s true!” echoed Joy Behar.
“So, Obama gets it both ways: He got a terrible gift from George W. Bush. He gave Trump a good gift. Anything good that happens under Trump is actually Obama,” said Gingrich, pointing out their glaring hypocrisy.
“It’s true!” Hostin responded.
“Well, that’s one way to look at the world,” said Gingrich.
“Obama inherited a deficit. Trump inheriting a surplus,” Behar claimed.
“And, is accelerating it!” explained Gingrich. “He inherited a gradually growing economy, and he’s doubling the speed of growth.”
If there’s anyone who doesn’t have the knowledge, authority, or experience to be discussing politics on television, it’s these women. Yet, day after day, they position themselves as the leading authorities on everything from gun laws to the economy.
President Donald Trump is the best thing to happen to this country in years. You won’t see the women on “The View” admitting as much, though.
