Gingrich: Beware of Republicans Speaking 'Honeyed Words of Subversion'

(CNSNews.com) - The Trump presidency will be "one of the great adventures of our lifetime," former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told Fox News's Sean Hannity Wednesday night.

Gingrich dismissed never-Trump Republicans as "whiny, snivelling, negative cowards" who should "drift off into the ashbin of history while we go ahead and work with Donald Trump and with the House and Senate Republicans to create a dramatically new future."

Hannity asked Gingrich if he worries about establishment Republicans in Congress who may turn on Trump in an effort to stop his progress:

"Their technique won't be to turn on him," Gingrich said. "Their technique will be to say ‘Oh, be reasonable. Don’t push too hard. Don’t force the issue. Find a compromise with Democrats. Maybe he shouldn’t name one of the [Supreme Court] justices who are conservative who’s on his list. Maybe he should find a nice moderate acceptable to the Democrats.'

"Down that road is a disaster," Gingrich continued. "And then, so we have to be aware that the danger is not that they’re going to actively fight. The danger is that they’re going to opt for honeyed words of subversion that undermines the entire movement to make America great again..."

Gingrich has been there. He knows. Trump should and will listen. That's why he's on the Trump team.
