Gingrich: Biden’s most inspirational State of the Union moment was ‘when he left’

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) said President Biden’s most inspirational moment of his State of the Union address was “when he left” Friday.

“I think at the end when he left,” Gingrich responded when asked by Fox News host Laura Ingraham on her show, “The Ingraham Angle,” if the president had an “overriding, inspiring moment” that “grabbed” him in his speech.

Biden gave a fiery and energetic State of the Union address Thursday night that drew criticism from conservatives including current Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.), who was sitting behind the president for the speech.

“People are saying that I made funny facial expressions. I tried to keep a poker face, but it was very difficult. I disagreed so vehemently with so much of what he said, and I think the people back home did as well,” Johnson told reporters after the speech.

“There’s a lot of memes, I guess, going around tonight about my facial expressions. I did not like the speech, I don’t think the American people liked it, and there wasn’t much I could do about that. I guess I didn’t hide that very well,” Johnson told Fox News’s Sean Hannity.

In his interview with Ingraham, Gingrich said the address was “the most hateful, divisive and destructive speech ever given at a State of the Union.” He also said that he thinks that Biden’s Thursday speech “will lead an immense number of Americans to decide that they will, not under any circumstance, ever, support Joe Biden for anything.”

Biden also went after likely GOP presidential nominee former President Trump multiple times during his speech, a few days after Trump’s last major rival in the GOP presidential primary race, former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley, dropped out.
