Former Congressman Newt Gingrich (R-GA) was hammered on Saturday night for attacking Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) on Twitter, saying the Black lawmaker is participating in a "lynch mob" out to get controversial Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

Gingrich, a regular contributor to Fox News used the highly charged language in a tweet that read, "AOC (152,661 votes) and Maxine Waters (152,272 votes) are part of lynch mob trying to destroy Congresswoman Marjorie Greene (229,827 votes).they should calm down and read the history of John Wilkes in the 1770s and the principle that the people's vote matters more than parliament."

It did not go unnoticed that former Georgia politician cited only two women of color in his attack in his defense of the white Taylor Greene, which led to a furious backlash as you can see below:
