Newt Gingrich Compares Donald Trump To The Grizzly Bear In ‘The Revenant’

On Tuesday, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich spoke at the Heritage Foundation. The event was billed as a discussion about “The Principles of Trumpism.”

During the event, Gingrich talked about the Republican primary and why other Republican candidates wouldn’t attack Trump. Gingrich told the audience about a conversation he had with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly in which Gingrich compared Trump to the grizzly bear in “The Revenant,” the 2015 film starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

“Donald Trump is the grizzly bear in ‘The Revenant.’ If you get his attention, he will get awake. When he gets awake, he will walk over, bite your face off and sit on you,” Gingrich told the audience to raucous laughter.

Gingrich said other Republican candidates saw what Trump did to “low energy” Jeb Bush and wanted no part of that.
