Newt Gingrich Says Michael Sam, The First Openly Gay NFL Player, Has "Manipulated The System"

On last night’s episode of CNN’s Crossfire, Gingrich weighed in on Michael Sam, soon to be the NFL’s first openly gay player. He criticized an endorsement deal Sam has with Visa.

Gingrich initially says that making people go through “sensitivity training” in regards to homophobic remarks is a form of “repression.” He says later in the clip: “You have a clever, young guy who has manipulated the system brilliantly.”
