On his nationally syndicated radio show Wednesday, host Sean Hannity discussed with former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich the Left’s onslaught on Trump and his administration’s legitimacy, Gingrich explaining, “They’re facing the end of their way of life.”

“We’re talking here about the end of their world,” said former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. “You know, Donald Trump is the real deal. He is the first decisive change since 1932, much bigger, much deeper than Ronald Reagan, and the Left knows it. And they’re facing, you know, they’re facing the end of their way of life.”

Below is a transcript of Sean Hannity and Newt Gingrich’s comments from the show:

Hannity: “Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is with us.

“So first they tried the recount. Then they tried the Russians hacked into it, until we found out there’s no new information, no new evidence. The FBI and the national director of intelligence totally disagree with the politicized CIA analysis and administration analysis.

“Then we learn that in fact Obama was briefed on Russia’s DNC hack, and he didn’t do anything about it. Nor did he do anything for 10 years about Wikileaks. And now we just keep hearing that all the electors are being intimidated into not voting for Donald Trump, which they are obligated to do.

“What’s your reaction?”

Gingrich: “Well, I think this is a good taste of what the next eight years are going to be like.”

Hannity: “Yeah, pretty much.”

Gingrich: “You know, the Left’s not going to give up. They’re going to fight very hard to do everything they can to either beat Trump, to weaken the administration, to isolate it, to slow down change.

“I mean, we’re talking here about the end of their world.

“You know, Donald Trump is the real deal. He is the first decisive change since 1932, much bigger, much deeper than Ronald Reagan, and the Left knows it. And they’re facing, you know, they’re facing the end of their way of life.”

Hannity: “You know, what’s interesting is you’ve lived through this, and I assume you’re probably – I remember you wrote a book years ago called “Lessons Learned the Hard Way” after you left being Speaker of the House.

“I actually think it was one of your more reflective, thoughtful books – a personal journey, if you will. So, I would think that you could probably transfer some of those lessons to Trump and warn him what’s about to happen and how they will try to delegitimize him.”

Gingrich: “That’s right. Well, as a matter of fact, I’m on my way up now to see the Trump folks. I’m talking to you from the National Airport in Washington.

“The fact is we should understand this is life and death, if you are on the Left.”
