Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a supporter of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, warned so-called “Never Trumpers” that not supporting Trump mean you’re in love with the past and look to write off the future with his opponent Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
Gingrich declared there was no other viable “conservative” alternative to Trump and suggest otherwise mean you would be “out of touch with reality.”
“My view is, if you so love the past that you want to write off the future, then ‘never Trump’ makes some sense,” Gingrich said. “Cling to the failed ideas. Cling to the failed bureaucracy. Cling to what didn’t work. Cling to the war we didn’t win. If that’s what you want to do, that your right as a citizen. Don’t expect the rest of us to be impressed with it. This is a sign that you’re so mired down in the past, you’re so unwilling to see reality. You’re so unwilling to look at the future.”
[T]he key point here is to suggest that there’s any realistic alternative to Donald Trump, that’s going to be conservative, is utterly out of touch with reality,” he added.
