Gingrich: If Waters Hit Trump, 'He'd Knock Her Down'

By    |   Tuesday, 24 October 2017 10:50 AM

Newt Gingrich on Monday night mused about a hypothetical boxing match between Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters and President Donald Trump, saying that if she ever hit the president, "he'd knock her down."

A guest on Sean Hannity's primetime show on Fox News, Gingrich was responding to a speech that the outspoken Waters gave two weeks ago when she said she was inspired to "take Trump out tonight."

"You'd never get it to happen, but the idea of a round between her and Donald Trump is pretty interesting," Gingrich said on "Hannity." "I think he'd probably win in the opening half minute."

Hannity responded: "He's not gonna hit a girl, a woman, he's not gonna do that."

"Oh, sure he would," Gingrich said. "If he was confronted with her, he would be very pleasant until she hit him, and the second she hit him, he'd knock her down. Let's be honest here. This is crazy."

Waters' address was at the Ali Forney Center gala, an event to support the largest community center helping LGBT homeless youth in the U.S.

During the speech, Waters said she never met Ali, a transgender youth who was murdered in 1997, but that "with this kind of inspiration, I will go and take Trump out tonight."

"I'm guessing her reference to Muhammad Ali is a reference to boxing, and so she meant it in a sense of hitting in a ring," said Gingrich, guessing incorrectly.

"My point's this: The left … you have a pathology … you are so anti-Trump, that you're not in touch with the real world," Gingrich said. "I think Maxine Waters is in the same group. There's this whole group of people who are so, frankly, crazy, that they're certifiably out of touch with reality."
