Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-) is blasting two-time failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for mulling a “rematch” against President Donald Trump in 2020.

Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday to mock his 2016 general election opponent, as IJR previously reported.

He suggested Clinton “should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren.” Warren is neck-and-neck with former Vice President Joe Biden (D) currently in the Democratic primary polls.

“Only one condition,” Trump continued, adding, “The Crooked one must explain all of her high crimes and misdemeanors including how [and] why she deleted 33,000 Emails AFTER getting ‘C’ Subpoena!”

Clinton responded to the president: “Don’t tempt me. Do your job.”

Clinton took things a step further when she told “PBS NewsHour” on Tuesday that Trump is “obsessed” with her and that he is “either lying or delusional or both” on her emails.

“Maybe there does need to be a rematch,” she said. “I mean, obviously, I can beat him again.”

Speaking with Fox News on Wednesday, Gingrich took note of Clinton’s remarks, suggesting she can “beat” Trump “again,” although she lost to him in 2016.

“She is about as delusional as AOC [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] and ‘the squad,'” Gingrich said. He continued:

“Imagine you’re Hillary Clinton: You are watching Biden whose memory gets worse each week and whose son cannot explain why he was getting $600,000 a year from a Ukrainian company on a topic he knows nothing about. She’s watching Sanders who has been shrinking and now has had a heart attack. She is watching Elizabeth Warren, who would be the most radical nominee in American history. And then she watches everybody else out there floundering around.”

“You can see why she should sit there and think, ‘I can do better than that,'” he added. “You have to admit it, from Trump’s perspective, let’s stir it up a little bit. […] I’m sure when she watches them screw up that it drives her nuts.”

See Gingrich’s comments below:

Since her defeat to Trump in the 2016 presidential election, Clinton has blamed voter suppression on her loss.

Additionally, the former secretary of state has claimed that losing to Trump was “losing to a corrupt, human tornado,” as IJR previously reported.

I guess the rest of the country is “lying or delusional” about her emails too because we’d all like to know how destroying Congress subpoenaed evidence is not a crime.
