Newt Gingrich: 'Virtually A Lynching' Of Donald Trump By The Media

Just when I thought CNN was winning the contest for having the most repulsive Trump surrogates on the air, Fox manages to prove me wrong.

Just when I thought CNN was winning the contest for having the most repulsive Trump surrogates on the air, Fox manages to prove me wrong.

Here's Hannity and Newt desperately trying to convince the lemmings that watch Hannity's show that Trump's only problem is that the "liberal media" has it out for him, with a giant blow horn of race-baiting thrown in for good measure, because we all know Gingrich just can't help himself:

SEAN HANNITY (HOST): How should he deal with these allegations that are coming up last minute to smear him and get his message out? What should the message be?

NEWT GINGRICH: First of all, Barry Castleman wrote a blog this week in which he said this is literally a media coup d'état. This was an effort by the media, starting last Friday, to replace the chosen nominee and destroy the chosen nominee of one of our two major parties. And it was an all-out effort, virtually a lynching by the news media. I think the way you beat that and the way Ronald Reagan beat it, the way we beat it in 1994, is you take a set of key messages that you know will win in the end. I was reminded John Engler with the year he won the governorship against the incumbent governor, the Sunday morning before the election, the Detroit liberal newspaper came out and said that Engler was going to lose by 14 points. Two days later he won by one point. It was a 15-point spread. And of course they were trying to depress Republicans, get them to decide not the vote, get them to say home. Trump’s gotta stay big, gotta go right at Hillary as the most corrupt candidate in history, he’s gotta go right at Carlos Slim, the amount of money the various Slim organizations have given, paid in speeches, given to the foundation, the relationship of Slim to the The New York Times And I love it when the head of the The New York Times explains oh, but there's no real relationship. Right. The richest guy in Mexico who is your biggest single stockholder has no real effect on you. Give me a break. The level of dishonesty is breathtaking and I think you see it in the Washington Post, the New York Times--

HANNITY: But it looks like Trump is going to have to do it by himself. You and I are the only ones that will tell the story.
