Following the reaction to the Derek Chauvin verdict, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich called out the Biden Administration, saying on Sunday it is “the most anti-American presidency in our country’s history.”
Former Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin’s guilty murder conviction comes almost a year since the death of George Floyd shocked the nation. Yet the responses from President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris left Gingrich wanting more. He appeared on the Cats Roundtable radio show to say that he is “appalled at the kind of hostility that we are getting” from Biden and Harris.
“[They] had an opportunity to come out and say, ‘look, the system works, here’s a policeman who’s now been convicted on all three counts. We can feel good about how America deals with these kinds of issues,’” Gingrich said. “Instead they came out and went on a rant about institutional racism. They could not have done a better job of tearing down America if they were Chinese communist propagandists.”
The former House Speaker pointed out that the two received great opportunities to make things better for the country. For instance, Biden served two terms as Vice President to the country’s first Black president. Harris, hailing from a mixed African and Asian background, also served in some of the country’s highest offices.
“Instead of them celebrating the fact that this is proof that America is working…. they are both propagandists for this institutional racist lie…. and tearing down the country,” Gingrich said.

50-Foot Christmas Tree Outside Fox News Set on Fire by 49yr Old Homeless Man
Just before 12:15 am Wednesday morning, an arsonist set fire to the 50-foot tree in front of Fox News’ Midtown headquarters on 6th avenue. The suspect, a 49-year-old with three prior arrests, was quickly caught and taken into custody.
The man has two previous arrests for drug possession and one for public intoxication. The motive is unclear, and Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said detectives are looking into whether mental illness was a factor.
“The suspect is identified as 49-year-old Craig Tamanaha, who is homeless, with a last known address in Brooklyn” reports ABC 7 New York. Police said the suspect climbed up “the metal superstructure” underneath the artificial tree and lit papers he had brought with him on fire, then shoved the papers into the tree structure.
He then climbed down and watched from the street level as it burned, and he was spotted by building security who pointed the man out to police officers posted in nearby Rockefeller Center,” reports ABC.
A lighter was found in his possession, and he has been charged with criminal mischief, reckless endangerment, arson, criminal nuisance, endangering others, criminal trespass, criminal tampering and disorderly conduct.
Fox says it will rebuild the tree, which took more than 21 hours to assemble and consisted of 10,000 glass ornaments and 100,000 lights.
