On Tuesday, Joy Behar, co-host of ABC’s “The View,” tried to pretend that Barack Obama was still the president, giving him all the credit for Donald Trump’s accomplishments. However, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich was having none of it, and he promptly destroyed her on live television.
On Tuesday’s episode of “The View,” former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich was the special guest at the hot topics table, where he demonstrated just how hypocritical the opinions held by the show’s liberal ladies — I use that term loosely — really are.
After asking Gingrich about President Donald Trump disinviting this year’s Super Bowl Champions team to the White House, host Sara Haines pressed him surrounding what he believes to be the best thing and the worst thing Trump has done while in office.
Gingrich praised Trump for boosting the economy and for the record-low black unemployment, saying, “I think the best thing is the economy, I think the fact that we have the lowest black unemployment in history…”
Host Sunny Hostin took issue with this, interjecting to ask, “Can he take credit for that? Isn’t that Obama’s doing?”
Gingrich, however, came prepared to back his statement up with facts. “I think this quarter we will have more than twice the economic growth rate of any quarter in 8 years of Obama,” he responded.
But Hostin wasn’t letting it go. “Because he’s been set up! He was given a gift, Newt!” she protested.
“It’s true!” echoed Joy Behar.
“So Obama gets it both ways: He got a terrible gift from George W. Bush. He gave Trump a good gift. Anything good that happens under Trump is actually Obama,” said Gingrich, pointing out their glaring hypocrisy.
“It’s true!” Hostin responded.
“Well, that’s one way to look at the world,” said Gingrich.
“Obama inherited a deficit. Trump is inheriting a surplus,” Behar claimed.
“And is accelerating it!” explained Gingrich. “He inherited a gradually growing economy and he’s doubling the speed of growth.”
If there’s anyone who doesn’t have the knowledge, authority, or experience to be discussing politics on television, it’s these women. Yet, day after day, they position themselves as the leading authorities on everything from gun laws to the economy. In reality, Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin have zero understanding of what it takes to stabilize the economy of a world superpower, let alone what it takes to make it grow.
Coincidentally, Barack Obama also had zero understanding of this either, which is why the economy took such a dive during his presidency. Only now that President Donald Trump is in office are we finally seeing things turn around. And we haven’t just seen small improvements, either. Trump is literally breaking records.
Just last week we reported that for the first time in recorded history there is a job available for every single American seeking employment. That is largely due to the millions of jobs Trump has brought back to the United States and the billions of dollars foreign companies are now investing in our economy thanks to Trump’s leadership. There’s simply no way to credit Obama for this massive accomplishment. Under the Obama administration, companies were leaving the U.S., not opening up plants and factories and storefronts here.
Similarly, there is no way to credit Obama for the record-low black unemployment rate. Despite being the first black president, he did nothing at all to help the black community. In fact, many feel that he brought this minority demographic back several decades in terms of economic advancement and race relations.
President Donald Trump is the best thing to happen to this country in years. You won’t see the women on “The View” admitting as much, though. They’re too busy worshipping the ground Barack Obama walks on.
