Watch Newt Gingrich blame bomb recipients for bringing it on themselves: ‘They have been very hostile to conservatives’

Published

on

Speaking with a TMZ street correspondent, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R) blamed the recent recipients of mail bombs — which include former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton and actor Robert DeNiro — of reaping what they have sown.

Saying he wasn’t personally concerned about what was going on, Gingrich first glibly dismissed the threat, saying, “I have faith in God.”

Asked whether he believed President Donald Trump’s “rhetoric” might have increased the threats, the Republican replied, “Well, you mean like Congressman [Maxine] Waters (D-CA) comments saying they should drive Republicans out of public [view]?”

“That kind? Or the former Attorney General [Eric Holder] saying they should kick Republicans when they are down?” he continued.

Asked about Trump attacking the “mainstream media,” Gingrich smiled and said, “The mainstream media have often earned it.”

Pressed on whether Trump should be ratcheting up his attacks in light of the mail bombs, Gingrich replied, “I don’t think there is a direct connection between Trump and the people (inaudible). Look, the people you are talking about have been people who have been very hostile to conservatives.”

“Very,” he added for emphasis.

‘Enraged Trump supporters vowed to kill me’: Michael Cohen reveals what happened after he flipped

Published

on

Donald Trump's former personal attorney says he has received hundreds of death threats after flipping on the president of the United States.

Cohen revealed the threats in the forward to his forthcoming book “Disloyal: A Memoir. The true story of the former personal attorney to President Donald J. Trump.

"The President of the United States wanted me dead," the forward begins. "Or, let me say it the way Donald Trump would: He wouldn’t mind if I was dead. That was how Trump talked. Like a mob boss, using language carefully calibrated to convey his desires and demands, while at the same time employing deliberate indirection to insulate himself and avoid actually ordering a hit on his former personal attorney, confidant, consigliere, and, at least in my heart, adopted son."
