Newt Gingrich called Donald Trump a great populist leader and said he “is one part Andrew Jackson as a disruptor, one part Theodore Roosevelt with manic energy, and one part P.T. Barnum as a salesman, which resonates well with the working class, but not the elite,” the Aspen Daily News reports.
Said Gingrich: “That blend of those three explains the sort of ‘Trumpian’ phenomenon. That frankly is fairly offensive if you’re part of an establishment that goes to think tanks and comes to Aspen, and has conversations appropriate for corporate boardrooms. Guys who talk at fourth-grade levels and speak in the language of a good working-class bar, drive you crazy. And if they succeed they really drive you crazy, because they disrupt everything you thought you invested your life in.”Save to Favorites
