Levin Blasts White House's 'Mealy-Mouthed Liars' on Chris Lane Murder Case

August 22, 2013 - 11:41 AM

On Wednesday, radio host Mark Levin refuted White House spokesman Josh Earnest's comments regarding murder of Christopher Lane, an Australian killed in Oklahoma, allegedly by bored teens.

Levin played audio of Earnest fielding questions about the president's reaction to the case, then responded to Earnest's claims:

Earnest: "I wouldn't want get ahead of the legal process, here."

Levin: "Stop, stop, stop. What are you talking about you wouldn't want to get ahead of the legal process? You fools always get ahead of the legal process. You don't even believe in the legal process."

Earnest: "The president, I think himself, has spoken pretty eloquently about violence in our communities."

Levin: "Stop. When did the president speak about violence in our communities? He spoke about gun control; he said he's Trayvon Martin. What's he talking about?"

Levin then played an audio clip Earnest responding to another question asking why the president hasn't spoken out on this case, since he spoke out extensively on the Trayvon Martin case.

"There's some people in this room, I don't think, who would agree with you that the president spoke out extensively on it," Earnest said - eventually admitting, after being challenged, that Obama spoke out on the subject at a press event at the White House Rose Garden.

Levin blasted both the White House spokesman's answer and the president's failure to speak out about both the Lane case and the violence against Coptic Christians in Egypt:

"What is it with this damn administration and these mealy-mouthed liars? The president spoke extensively about the Trayvon Martin case, especially the second time. It was a planted question by a reporter. They knew the question would come up. The president had his talking points ready; he put himself right in the middle of it, saying he is Trayvon Martin, in essence.

"What is all this mealy-mouthed crap from this phony Josh Earnest? When are we going to hear from the president about these teenagers murdering this Australian, shooting him in the back? When are we going to hear from you Mr. President?

"When are we going to hear from you Mr. President, about the Muslim Brotherhood slaughtering Coptic Christians in Cairo and other parts of Egypt - marching nuns down the middle of the street, putting red marks on churches and burning them down? On the doors of businesses and burning them down if they're owned by Christians. When are we going to hear from you, Mr. President?

"I'm so damned disgusted, it's not even funny."
