Newt Gingrich Went on Hannity to Plug an Online Course He’s Teaching — the Twitter Reactions Are Gold

Thursday night on Hannity, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich stopped by to plug an online course he’s teaching called “Defending America.”

“It’s really on how to defeat the left intellectually,” Gingrich said. “And remind people why America is unique and why American history matters and why being patriotic is important.”

It’s a standalone course — not being taught in association with any institution of higher learning — for which the former House Speaker is charging $49.99 (with 20 percent off for early registrants).

The comparisons to Trump U, of course, are inevitable. And Twitter didn’t disappoint. Here’s a sampling of the online reaction to this money grab:
