Weird.

Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) on Wednesday told Sean Hannity that the 2018 midterms are going to be determined by two words - and President Donald Trump tried to turn them into a campaign slogan.

“I think two words are going to define the 2018 election in the next three weeks," Gingrich predicted on Fox News. "One is Kavanaugh and the other is caravan."


"The combination of anger over how the left smeared, engaged in character assassination, lied, used bullying tactics with Judge Kavanaugh is going to be one part of this," he said of the new Supreme Court Justice.

Gingrich then accused "the left" of wanting to shuttle "3,000 people in a caravan" across "the American border" to "break American law," and "recognizing if that happens the next caravan will be even bigger and the caravan after that will be even bigger." No evidence was presented to support the existence of caravans supported by Democrats.

Watch the full clip below:

At a campaign rally in Missoula, Montana on Thursday, Trump parroted Gingrich's remarks.

The midterms "will be an election of Kavanaugh, the caravan, law and order, and common sense," Trump bellowed. "It's gonna be an election of those things: law and order, Kavanaugh, common sense, and the caravan."

"You know what I'm talking about," Trump said, offering no evidence to back up his remarks.

No one in the audience appeared to know what Trump was talking about. His words landed with a thud, garnering no applause or cheers even after he repeated them.

Watch the clip below:

Trump's comments didn't fare well on social media either. For many, "common sense" means not voting Republican.

Calls for "law and order" coming from Trump didn't play well either.

The cost of Trump's frequent personal travel to taxpayers was another point of contention.

Trump knows words, after all; he has the best words. But he's going to need more than a tainted Supreme Court justice and a make-believe caravan.

Iowa AG Dragged For Ironically Boasting At RNC That Republicans Put Criminals 'In Jail'

Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird was criticized after telling the audience at the Republican National Convention that the GOP is known to "put criminals where they belong: in jail"—only to then encourage everyone to vote for convicted felon former President Donald Trump.

In May, Trump became the first former president to be convicted of felony crimes. The jury found him guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records to conceal hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels to illegally influence the 2016 election. His sentencing was set for July 11 but has now been delayed in the wake of a Supreme Court decision granting him sweeping immunity protections.
