Newt Gingrich: Ted Cruz Has Shown Enormous Courage
Ted Cruz is a very well educated man. The native of Katy, Texas went to Princeton University, then Harvard law school. That education, though, didn’t prevent him from backing Donald Trump’s flawed election fight.
The payback for Cruz actions has come swiftly. The Houston Chronicle called on the Texas senator to resign. A number of companies have announced that they will not donate money to Cruz or any of the other GOP lawmakers that challenged the election results.
That doesn’t mean, however, that Cruz has lost all of his fans. During a Thursday appearance on Sean Hannity’s show, Newt Gingrich claimed that Cruz has shown, “enormous courage.”
Gingrich began his rant by claiming that Democrats want to do away with Republicans once and for all. “Well look, I think you are seeing the hysteria of the Biden system,” he said. “Because it’s not really about Biden himself. It’s this entire team around him who are radicals who believe if they could exterminate the Republicans that would be one way to get to unity.”
Then the former GOP Speaker of the House praised the embattled Cruz. Gingrich continued, “As a New York Times columnist wrote this morning, you know, if Biden really wanted unity, he would start by lynching Vice President Pence. That just gives you a sense of the ferocity and the anger and the hatred that underlies the modern left. And I think that Cruz showed enormous courage. He always has.”
