SEAN HANNITY (HOST): What's your reaction?

NEWT GINGRICH: Well first of all, I am guessing her reference to Muhammad Ali is a reference to boxing, and so, she meant it in the sense of hitting, you know -- hitting in the ring.

First of all, let me just say -- you'd never get it to happen, but the idea of a round between her and Donald Trump is pretty interesting. I think he would probably win in the opening half minute. But look, what you have on the left, and you see it over and over--

HANNITY: He's not going to hit a girl, a woman. He's not going to do that. It's not --

GINGRICH: Oh, sure.

HANNITY: But -- but -- but --

GINGRICH: Yeah, but if he was confronted with her, he would be very pleasant until she hit him, and the second she hit him, he would knock her down. I mean, let's be honest here, this is crazy. I mean, we're going to have on the left --

HANNITY: Oh jeez, I can see the headline: “Newt Gingrich encourages Trump to hit congresswoman.” I can see the headlines now -- that's not what you're saying.

GINGRICH: No -- look, my point is this, the left -- I mean, I did this interview with a reporter the other day, and I cut him off and I said, “You know, you have a pathology. I can't answer your questions, because you are pathological.” And he was totally stunned and said “What do you mean?” I said, “You are so anti-Trump, you are not in touch with the real world,” --

HANNITY: There's no talking to you.

GINGRICH: “So, how can I have an interview?” I think Maxine Waters is in the same group. There's this whole group of people who are so, frankly, crazy, that they are certifiably out of touch with reality.
