After former President Barack Obama didn’t make any friends when he gave a speech that managed to reference himself nearly 400 times. Now Newt Gingrich is dragging the former president for what he failed to take credit for.
Speaking with Sean Hannity on Fox News, Gingrich bashed the former president as the one to oversee “the collapse of his own party.”
“I think that we should remember that the ‘I, me, I, me’ president presided over the collapse of his own party. They lost more state legislative seats, governorships, control of the U.S. House, control of the Senate. In a sense, that’s because, in the end, Barack Obama loved Barack Obama. The country sort of wanted somebody to actually deliver something,” Gingrich said.
He was also quick to point out that during Obama’s eight years in office, Democrats lost over 1,000 seats, including the most coveted one of U.S. president.
Gingrich also blasted biased media for failing to mention Obama’s shortcomings, resulting in him still holding a 95% approval rating among the Democratic Party.
“He presided over the biggest collapse of the Democratic Party in modern times but because of the news media, of course, you’d never quite know that,” Gingrich stated.
