Speaking Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” alongside interim DNC chair Donna Brazile, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich shared his greatest fear regarding the incoming administration of President-elect Donald Trump.
“That they will lose their nerve,” he said. “Look, they’re going to arrive in Washington and, for them to be successful, they have to stake out positions that Donna will not like and the left will hate.”
In short, the Trump administration will indubitably piss off a lot of leftists, including Miss Brazile, who according to Breitbart pleaded with Trump to “find some common ground” with leftists.
“He has an enormous opportunity as every president in the first 100 days to show that, you know, he’s eager to find common ground, to meet with, you know, Democrats, Chuck Schumer,” she said. “I mean, Chuck Schumer knows Donald Trump, both New Yorkers. Have him over for breakfast, have him over for afternoon tea and see if you can find some common ground.”
Gingrich’s fear might just be warranted.
The morning after the election, the Senate and the White House, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell urged his colleagues to refrain from pursuing a purely partisan agenda.
“Overreaching after an election is, generally speaking, a mistake,” he said, as reported by The Wall Street Journal.
We had just won the the White House, the House and the Senate, and already McConnell was acting like a sissified pantywaist. Granted, I too warned against overreach,
But now that the Democrats have doubled down on the antics that cost them the election in the first place — political correctness, anti-white racism, etc. — it feels like bipartisanship policy-making with the lunatic left is the last thing the American people need or desire.
