NEWT GINGRICH: I believe, and I've said this in my newsletter as you know, and I've said it actually with you when we talked around midnight after the debate Monday night. This was the Holt-Clinton vs Trump debate, and you have to see it as tag-team. Holt was on Clinton's team. This moderator stuff is nonsense, and I predict to you that Anderson Cooper will be ten times worse than Holt because he's so deeply prejudiced against Trump. I think what you're going to see is a -- and Trump's just got to prepare for this. Every single debate is going to be a double-team. He's going to have the moderator who's a liberal, and he's going to have Hillary, and they're both going to be on the same team.
And there are rumors that Hillary was actually given the questions in advance. I don't know if it's true but it would not shock me because they all operate in the same circle. They go to the same cocktail parties, they all know each other, her operatives and the news media producers on the left are all close friends, and this whole thing is a setup. But this particular case is such a vivid setup, and in the end it's not going to work. The average American, in the end, is not going to say, "I'm so offended by something which happened 20 years ago in a beauty pageant that boy, that really turns me off." And as they learn that the whole thing was a fraud, it was all a setup by the Clinton campaign and, as you point out, by the elite news media, I think they become even less likely to agree to this and I think the end result in the end will be it's a diversion and we'll go on to the big issues where Trump is winning on every single one of them.
