<p>Following President Barack Obama&rsquo;s speech announcing his executive order on illegal immigration, CNN political commentator and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich unloaded on the President, likening his speech to statements made by ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber and that those in the <strong>&ldquo;elite&rdquo;</strong> class<strong> &ldquo;really underestimate&rdquo;</strong> the disdain Americans have for unfortified borders.</p>

<p>Responding on CNN in the minutes after it ended, Gingrich opined that it was wrong for the President to go against the incoming Congress as it had <strong>&ldquo;repudiated his policies in the election&rdquo;</strong> a few weeks ago. Gingrich then slammed what viewers just heard as <strong>&ldquo;a Gruber speech&rdquo; </strong>where the President was <strong>&ldquo;simply not telling the country the truth.&rdquo;</strong></p>
