Gingrich: Schumer Cries Fake Tears For Refugees But He Doesn’t Cry For Murdered Americans [VIDEO]

The Hill reports:

Former Speaker Newt Gingrich on Tuesday slammed Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) for his emotional reaction at a press conference following President Trump’s executive order on immigration.

“It really bothered me that Chuck Schumer could bring up a few tears for people that are not being killed, not being shot, not being imprisoned, they are simply being held in an airport,” Gingrich said on “Fox & Friends.”

“That brought tears. Four thousand Americans being shot, over 700 killed in Chicago. That didn’t bring Chuck Schumer to tears. Didn’t bring Rahm Emanuel to tears.” Gingrich said Trump feels his first responsibility is to protect Americans. “That for liberal Democrats — that somehow doesn’t ever seem to be their first duty,” he said.

    Hey asshole, They have come in the form of getting responsible gun ownership and background checks but the assholes like you have stopped it dead in the tracks. Where were your tears for the children at Sandy Hook asshole???? I remember President Obama’s tears – all of our tears but republicans and you fuckers were stone dead quiet and pushing for open carry, concealed carry, and no background checks.

    • Bad Tom

      And President Obama was criticized for those tears

    • teeveedub

      If you feel like you’re witnessing a special kind of hatred for Chuck Schumer, you are. These folks hate him passionately because of his positions on guns. He’s been a target of NRA hatred for decades.

        Maybe a relative of yours, not mine. I’d have gotten him drunk at a family reunion and beat the crap out of him. 😈😈😈

      I wonder if this is truly the old white racists last gasp. There’s some saying about how when something finally goes the tail whips around and does the most damage, something like that. I truly hope this is it for these monsters.

        They’ve been written off before. A dying demographic. People still get old. Not sure how long his mind set will take to change. Lots of people want to blame someone else for the not great life they had.

    What does the crime rate in Chicago have to do with the unlawful detaining of legal residents, refugees, and people who have already been vetted for entry into the country?

    Oh, that’s right – bupkis.


      LOOK! Squirrel!

      I suspect Trump is planning on dispatching the National Guard to Chicago and other inner-city problem areas.

    What do the shootings in Chicago have to do with the Muslim ban? I hate that these shells with rotted souls sit and mock people who can feel empathy. Are they jealous? Do they know how rotten they are inside?

    I have to admit that, in the 90s, I didn’t quite understand what a fascist this guys is.

    Exactly the sort of vile comment I’d expect from this man — one of the most soulless pieces of slime ever to disgrace U.S. politics.

    Comments from a man who has never been detained or inconvenienced by police or border agents.

    BTW, Newt, the logical fallacy you are employing is called the Fallacy of Relative Privation, to wit (since you have none,) these unrelated things over there are worse than what you are discussing, so your argument has no merit. Did I mention, Newt, that it is a logical fallacy? That means it is wrong.

  • Cucker “Dick” Tarlson

    Speaking of fake tears, this is the asshole who served divorce papers to his terminally ill wife so that he could marry his mistress.

    He has all the integrity of a pile of shit.

    Thousands are sailing
    Again across the ocean
    Where the hand of opportunity
    Draws tickets in a lottery
    Postcards we’re mailing
    Of sky-blue skies and oceans
    From rooms the daylight never sees
    Where lights don’t glow on Christmas trees
    But we dance to the music
    And we dance

    • Jay George

      This is one of my alltime favorite songs. Love the original Pogues.

    Ha! I guess Noot’z under the impression that President Bannon wants to help. He wants to burn it all down, you idiot. He wants either a civil war or a revolution…in other words bloodshed and chaos. He’s quite prepared to die. Are you, Nooty?

  • BobSF_94117

    I wonder if it’s possible for Trump to make Newtie Ambassador to the Retired Vatican. So not send him to Francis, but to Benedict. They could sit around the garden table slamming grappa all day and reorganizing the world according to Catholic priorities..

    Gingrich should have been placed under observation at a secure mental health care facility 25 years ago.

  • Boreal

    OT: dump’s fans on Wall street don’t seem very enthused the last few days.

    • Stephen Elliot Phillips

      Hillary would have been so bad for wall street!

      • MichaelJ

        No, she would have been quite good. The financial industry would have been able to adopt whatever most likely modest restrictions in its behavior Clinton would make in order to appease progressive opinion. Her Presidency would have created a stable environment in which business and finance could operate.
        Though Trump’s nomination of Mnuchin as Treasury Secretary is welcome news on Wall Street, Trump is a wild card with respect to the economy and the business community. His policies are not well thought out and are often contradictory — (import taxes that for the most will be paid for by US consumers; more fracking which will lower energy prices and make coal mining even less viable; higher interest rates which will appreciate the dollar and reduce demand for US exports; etc.). Their unanticipated and unintended effects are likely to lead to their frequent revision, and the instability of the economy and not what the business and financial world are looking forward to.

        • Stephen Elliot Phillips

          I was being totally snarky michael. Youre also forgetting that social upheaval will lead to a crash on consumer confidence. People dont spend when theyre are afraid of the future.

          • MichaelJ

            Sorry. I often take things literally when the speaker or writer’s meaning is not literal.
            But no, I didn’t forget the effect on consumer sentiment. I could have gone on and on with all sorts of observations. It’s kind of like a couple of signs I saw at last weekend’s rallies (one in person and two in photographs elsewhere): “So many issues… not enough sign.”

  • Halou

    Gingrich Cries Fake Tears For Murdered Americans But He Doesn’t Cry For The Killing Of American Values.

  • Ninja0980

    Your daily reminder that Trump and all the poison in D.C. right now is the end result of this POS’s Republican Revolution back in 94.
    The only outcome Newt is upset with is the fact he isn’t the top dog for it.

  • Lazycrockett

    Would someone put this ass in the ground already.

  • SilasMarner

    Gingrich is a disgusting POS.

  • Jay George

    Gingrich can kiss this left wing propagandists’ ass.

  • Uncle Mark

    DAMN…I just LOVE how these Republicans are so concerned about the lives of (mostly Democratic) Chicagoans, as they seem to constantly obsess over our fragile lives in unrelated debates…almost as if we were all fetuses or something. I just can’t possibly fathom why I never see any of them around here safeguarding us all. I mean…it’s not like Newt is doing anything useful at the moment.

  • OdieDenCO

    newt: did you cry over the 26 deaths in Sandy Hook? how about the 49 at Pulse, 12 at Columbine, 12 at Aurora theater….? you have no moral high ground to stand upon! Hypocrite!

  • bambinoitaliano

    I’m sure he cried buckets of tears when all the mass shooting committed by Americans on Americans in the past. Eye rolled.

  • CB

    Goddam douche can’t even come up with something original for his idiotic sniping. He’s cribbing from the cheeto bandito. I really hate this cynical, festering pile of crap.

    • No More GOP.

      He’s eminently hateworthy.

  • Lumpy Gaga

    I can’t believe the tweedledum and tweedledee of lack of self discipline are calling out “cry baby” on anybody.

  • HZ81

    Could care less what this demented Keebler Elf-looking fuck says on the Mother of Fake News channels.

  • Ethnicities being detained is near and dear to Mr. Schumer — his ancestry includes a number of Holocaust victims.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Talk about lack of understanding, let alone context. Schumer’s family were victims of the Holocaust and the turning away of those fleeing strife has a dubious history where North America is concerned. That Gringrich doesn’t know this is not a surprise, but it is disappointing nonetheless.

  • Dk6

    Keep saying the word FAKE please, do it over & over & over, and it will eventually lose it’s meaning, even to the “uneducated” that Trump “loves”

  • Max_1
    • olandp

      Hope he can get back in!

  • Derrick Johns

    This awful immigration order may have reminded Schumer of what happened to Jewish refugees 80 years ago when they were turned away from the US. What happened to those refugees when they were returned to the Nazis?

    • Jay George

      Hell, I have cried every single day Cheeto has been in office. Of course these republican hell drones make fun of people with actual feelings. They only have pleasure and anger centers in their bot brains.

      • Joseph Miceli

        I have three rules for Conservatives:
        1. Have no shame
        2. Have no empathy
        3. Have no sense of humor
        Newt is most certainly fitting the bill.

  • M Jackson

    All terror experts have agreed for years that actions like trump’s make us all less safe.
    It’s just that disgraced former congressman Gingrich is not a terror expert.

  • Ben in Oakland

    Geewhiz, fornicating, adulterers, thrice married newtie. How many tears are the Republican Party shedding for the 30,000 victims of gun violence in this country every year? And are they real tears?

  • M Jackson

    Schumer truly cares about his constituents.
    Because he HAS constituents. Newt just has mistresses and ex-wives.

  • Rick

    Cough BOEHNER TEARS cough cough!

  • aar9n

    You mean like unarmed black teens being shot?

  • Lars Littlefield

    To summarize: New Gingrich is evil.

    • Joseph Miceli

      Yeah, my post went on for two paragraphs when I should have just written what you wrote. That’s really all that needs to be said about him!

      • Lars Littlefield

        Well, he’s fat and ugly, too. But too many JMGers get all fluffy huffy about fat and body image shaming when one just states those facts. I understand. 😉

        • Joseph Miceli

          Lol, he has to be rich because boy he didn’t get three wives for his looks or personality !

  • “That brought tears. Four thousand Americans being shot, over 700 killed in Chicago. That didn’t bring Chuck Schumer to tears. Didn’t bring Rahm Emanuel to tears.”

    Says the asshole who supports the NRA against any gun control, even after kids are murdered at Sandy Hook.

  • mikeinftl

    Newt who?

  • Y’all know that the acting head of ICE was replaced with a cheetolini pick that agrees with his racist views? Prepare for mass deportations, and the virtual slamming shut of our front doors.

  • Frank Conway

    Wow! You could almost misconstrue Gingrich’s assholery as a call for gun control when he talks about all of these people being shot!

  • Todd E.

    Gingrich is a douche bag of the first order.

    False equivalence much, Gasbag?

  • argeejay

    Oh Newt, Newt, Newt…..I grieve for your ex-wives.

  • olandp

    This from a man who wouldn’t lift a finger when 26 people were killed at Sandy Hook.

    We can all play that game Newt, but be careful, you will get burned.

  • Joseph Miceli

    Why does anyone listen to this poisonous douche bag grifter? He singlehandedly destroyed the very idea of working together across party lines to help Americans with his “Republican Revolution,” poisoned the discourse with his Orwellian dictates during his time as speaker, violated both his first two marriages by cheating on his spouses (including forcing his second wife to sign divorce papers while in she was in the hospital, recovering from chemo and groggy!) and recently sponsored a meeting of top Republican officials to present their wish list of Constitution defying twaddle to Trump.
    Newt Gingrich has sought the position of kingmaker. He’s found it, but like a twisted version of King Midas, everything he touches turns to shit and his hands have been all over America for the past 40 years.

    • billbear1961

      And where are the REAL journalists to expose him and everyone like him relentlessly for what they are??

      Where are the REAL news people who truly CARE about this country??

      Why have they treated vicious liars, propagandists and extremists like colleagues and people worthy of respect??

      Why don’t they give a DAMN about this country and genuine, civilized, modern, enlightened democracy??

      • Joseph Miceli

  • billbear1961

    It amazes me that REAL journalists have not made it their mission to go after Fox and all the right-wing media for the relentless propaganda they produce, to expose them for what they are!

    Instead, they have consistently treated them like colleagues worthy of respect!

    It is the MAIN reason–more than any other–that we are now faced with the very real possibility that the Rule of LAW may soon come to an end in this republic!!

  • NancyP

    There’s a non-sequitur and speculation from Mr. Put-the-kids-in-orphanages (and make the moms slave labor)

  • wds

    This from the cretin who wanted elementary kids to be janitors to pay for their schooling, the adulterer who served his wife divorce papers while she was in the hospital, who ended paying the ethics committee a “cost assessment ” of 6 figures in the ’90’s. Yeah, such a great person to be talking about anything … SMH

  • TheManicMechanic

    I don’t cry for dead American Nazis, evangelists, white supremacists, Republicans, murderers, etc. I cheer their deaths, in fact.
