Rick Santorum: ‘We Will Never Have The Elite, Smart People On Our Side’

Former Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum, addressing attendees at the Values Voter Summit on Saturday, said that, “We will never have the media on our side, ever, in this country. We will never have the elite, smart people on our side.”

Describing a divide between the GOP and the media, Santorum told the audience that the media “doesn’t like the other side,” BuzzFeed’s Rosie Gray reported today.

“If just a few people make decisions about what this world looks like, what this country looks like,” he said, “then you have people sitting in offices at major media outlets and Hollywood who think they can deal with a small group of people, to get them to jump through the hoops they want you to.”

Santorum also criticized the libertarian wing of the Republican party who “don’t want to talk about social issues,” saying that “without the church and the family, there is no conservative movement, there is no basic values of America.”
