Former Speaker Newt Gingrich was interviewed Wednesday night on Fox News’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
During the interview, Gingrich made a shocking comparison between liberals and “slave newspapers.”
“Well, look, I think a very good friend of mine teaches Civil War history at Gettysburg College and he has made the case that the parallels between Trump’s inaugural and Lincoln’s inaugural and the reactions to them are amazing,” Gingrich stated.
He continued, saying, “That if you go and you look at how South Carolina’s slave newspapers responded to Lincoln and then you look at how the left responded to Trump. They are almost verbatim parallels.”
Gingrich didn’t stop there and continued to blast “the left.”
“And you know, I wish we could all sing Kumbaya and come together but I don’t think that’s going to happen. I think what’s going to happen is the left is going to get crazier and crazier,” the former speaker said.
Gingrich has been an extremely vocal supporter of Trump since he took control of the White House.
However, in a rare move, Gingrich recently criticized Trump a few days ago.
Gingrich claimed that Trump has “got to be more disciplined and he’s got to work as part of a team.”
Despite those comments, Gingrich quickly changed course and is once again defending Trump.
