Bob Woodward's conclusion at the end of his new book, "Rage," that President Donald Trump is 'the wrong man for the job" should not come as any surprise considering the source, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Monday.
"Only in Washington would somebody take the word of somebody who spent their entire life at the Washington Post, one of the two most liberal newspapers in America, whose shockingly discovered that he didn't think Donald Trump was the right president," Gingrich said on Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "I mean, give me a break. Bob Woodward is a liberal working for a liberal publication whose entire life has been spent as a liberal. So from my perspective, nothing there is surprising."
Trump spoke extensively with Woodward, and Gingrich said that's no different than any other president he's known.
"Every leader I've known has always thought if only they talked to Woodward long enough, he would be their friend," he said. "It has never worked. That's not Bob Woodward's job. His job is to sell books, and but they all have that same thing and in some cases, they go deeper."
Gingrich also responded to Sen. Bernie Sanders' call on Sunday for Joe Biden to do more with his campaign than just attacking Trump, as voters want action on items such as raising the minimum wage and expanding healthcare.
"There's an article out today that an expert had worked and analyzed Biden's budget proposals and says they are the most radical, the most expensive since George McGovern in 1972," said Gingrich. "Of course McGovern crashed and burned unbelievably and people thought he was too radical."
But instead, Biden "just ducks and hides and sits in the basement and does as little as possible," said Gingrich. "That is not lasting. It's beginning to break down, and I think Biden has a much bigger problem than the Washington press corps thinks he does."
