During a recent interview on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” with guest host Pete Hegseth, Trump ally and former GOP Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich tore into the Biden Administration, saying that he thinks former President Barack Obama is the driving force behind what is going on in it.
Beginning his attack on the Biden Administration, Gingrich noted that President Joe Biden spends an obscene amount of time on vacation, which would indicate that someone else is doing the actual work of governing.
Making that point to Hegseth as a way of introducing the idea that someone else is really in charge, Gingrich said, “He has a pretty decent life and it doesn’t occur to him that all these other things that are piling up in a way that will be an absolute disaster for the Democratic Party.”
Continuing, he argued that the man behind the curtain is former President Barack Obama, saying, “My personal guess is the driving force behind the Biden administration is Barack Obama. Obama is the only president since Woodrow Wilson to stay in Washington, and in Wilson’s case, he stayed because he had a severe stroke and he could not be moved.”
Giving more reasons why he thinks Obama is in control, Gingrich added that Biden is seemingly in severe mental decline and the policies of the administration ar more in line with what Obama would do than the Biden of even a few years ago would have done.
Making that point, he said, “So the fact that Obama is here all the time, the fact that his staff permeates, literally permeates the Biden administration and Obama is really, really smart. Whatever Biden’s problems are at being kind of slow and cognitively decaying, Obama doesn’t have any of those problems. If you watched the administration, it is much more an Obama administration than say the Joe Biden of 10 or 15 years ago.”
Emphasizing his point that the policies seem like they are Obama policies, Gingrich noted just how radical this administration is, saying, “This is a very radical, very left-wing administration deeply dedicated to policies that are close to crazy. Their electric car policy is a disaster.”
Gingrich then chimed in with the now almost obligatory note that Trump was right about what would happen if Biden won the election and was able to put his leftist policies in place, saying, “As President Trump said, this will destroy at least 100,000 jobs and will achieve nothing in the long run. Their policies, they might propose that Americans are limited to two beers a week — the kind of petty nanny state interference that most Americans will find crazy.”
