Newt Gingrich wraps up his interview on Hannity with a question about President Trump and the three UCLA basketball players who were arrested for shoplifting and were facing some serious prison time if convicted of their offenses.

Instead of being grateful that President Trump intervened on their behalf with Chinese President Xi Jinping and obtained their release, the father has been spouting off, dismissing the role President Trump played and being a rude ingrate.

Hannity noted that President Trump jokingly commented that he should have just left them there, noting that if it were his son and the President had done him that kind of favor, he’d be saying, “Sir, thank you for standing up for my [son], I’m going to handle whatever it was they did wrong myself at home but thank you, this could have been a potential disaster in his life.”

Hannity points out, “There are people in this corrupt news media tonight that are saying what the President tweeted is racism.” Of course they are, Sean, everything is racism to the race-baiting globalist Democrats.   [VIDEO BELOW]

After noting that President Trump’s comment had nothing to do with race, Gingrich says, “I think it’s a sad commentary on what’s happened to America, when a father being told that his son was shoplifting in China, isn’t really angry at his son.”

Gingrich continues, “I mean he ought to be grateful to the President because his son could have been in really deep trouble. And second, if you’re a UCLA basketball player, you’re at a great university, you have a great future, what are you doing shoplifting?”

He adds, “I think people should be pretty irritated that these guys, who have a privileged life, have a privileged future, have the chance for a multi-million dollar career in the NBA, are out here embarrassing America, looking stupid, and doing something that’s totally dumb.”

And I’m embarrassed for that father,” says Gingrich, “that he didn’t have the decency to say, ‘Thank you, Mr. President, I’ve gotta talk to my kid, I clearly didn’t get several things across to him. I just think this is a sign of what’s sick about America, that people don’t take responsibility, they don’t take accountability.”
