WATCH: Gingrich Rips Biden SOTU Address, Says Most Inspiring Moment Was “When He Left”

Appearing on Fox News on Friday to speak with Laura Ingraham on her “The Ingraham Angle” show, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich ripped into President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address, saying that the most “inspiring” moment of the fiery speech was when Biden left the Capitol.

Ingraham, asking Gingrich about the divisive speech and if there was anything about it that “grabbed” him, said, “The speech itself was, you know, a panoply of viciousness and hateful thoughts about Trump or MAGA or what it represents. But, was there some overriding, inspiring moment that really grabbed you?”

Gingrich started off with a snarky answer, saying, “Well, I think at the end when he left – I thought that was inspirational.” Continuing, he added, “Look, this is the most hateful, divisive, and destructive speech ever given at a State of the Union, literally. I went back this morning and read Harry Truman’s 1948 State of the Union, which is statesman-like, patriotic, unifying because he came all the way – it was a very tough partisan in September. In January and February, he was the president of the United States.”

Emphasizing that point about the speech being terribly divisive, Gingrich said, “This was the democratic campaign committee’s speech and it was vicious. It was hateful. To lecture the Supreme Court is so far beyond the pale that it’s frankly worthy of censure. To start his speech with three consecutive attacks on his political opponent tells you both how desperate they are, how lacking in any scruples they are.”

He then added that Biden’s speech might have further turned off America, saying, “I really do think that this is a speech which will lead an immense number of Americans to decide that they will not under any circumstance ever support Joe Biden for anything.”

Former President Trump, commenting on Biden’s speech in a post on Truth Social, said, “Biden’s speech last night is getting “panned” all over the World. Only the Radical Left lunatics are trying to make the best of it. It took him 41 minutes to talk, briefly, about Immigration and the Border, on the topic of which he was very weak. No talk of weaponization against his very calm and nice opponent. Angry as hell, this guy is a PSYCHO!”

In another post about the speech, Trump said, “CROOKED JOE BIDEN IS ON THE RUN FROM HIS RECORD—AND LYING LIKE CRAZY TO TRY AND ESCAPE ACCOUNTABILITY FOR THE HORRIFIC DEVASTATION HE AND HIS PARTY HAVE CREATED!” He also joked about Biden’s current health and stamina, saying, “The Story is that he got through it, he’s still breathing, and they didn’t have to carry him out in a straitjacket. Other than that, he did not do a very good job!”

Trump skewered the media’s coverage of the SOTU address as well, saying, “The Fake News Media is taking Crooked Joe Biden’s anger, and calling it “fiery.” That’s why they’re the Fake News, and there’s nobody like them!”
