Gingrich is starting a Class War, Really? Am I watching SNL?
CBS’s Early Show repeatedly hit GOP candidate Newt Gingrich on Friday over his comments on African-Americans and food stamps. The network played the quote for African-American Congressman Tim Scott (R-S.C.) and engaged Gingrich over the context, even accusing him of trying to start a class war.
“You’ve accused President Obama of trying to start a class war,” co-host Nancy Cordes told Gingrich in an interview at the bottom of the 7 a.m. hour. “Aren’t you doing the same thing?” she pressed him.
The accusation came after CBS correspondent Jan Crawford described his newly-negative campaign as “using a flamethrower and scorching this field. ”
“But after he was hit with some negative ads he is not only answering back, guys he is just using a flamethrower and scorching this field,” Crawford strongly asserted.
