Mark Levin began his nationally syndicated radio talk show “The Mark Levin Show” on Wednesday comparing the media reaction to a speech by former President Barack H. Obama campaigning at the Congressional Black Caucus on behalf of then presidential candidate Hillary R. Clinton with that of President Donald J. Trump, Levin suggesting the “media and Democrat Party are tied at the hip.”

“Now, this is a speech he’s [Obama] is giving to the Congressional Black Caucus dinner,” stated Mark Levin. “So the vast majority in the auditorium are African Americans. So, it’s a personal insult to his legacy if they don’t vote for Hillary Clinton.

“Nobody ever called him a racist,” Levin went on. “Nobody ever called him a racist. That’s because the media and the Democrat Party are tied at the hip.”

Mark Levin’s comments stem from a clip from Real Clear Politics posted on Sept. 17, 2016, which shows former President Barack H. Obama campaigning at the Congressional Black Caucus on behalf of then presidential candidate Hillary R. Clinton, Obama encouraging the audience to vote for Hillary Clinton to continue his legacy.

Below is a transcript, in pertinent part, of Mark Levin’s remarks from his show on Wednesday:

Former President Barack H. Obama: “If you care about our legacy, realize everything we stand for is at stake, all the progress we’ve made is at stake in this election. My name may not be on the ballot, but our progress is on the ballot. Tolerance is on the ballot. Democracy is on the ballot. Justice is on the ballot. Good schools are on the ballot. …”

Mark Levin: “Hilary’s on the ballot.”

Obama: “Ending mass incarceration, that’s on the ballot right now. And there is one candidate …”

Levin: “Stop a second. Notice— Yes, it’d be me, Mark Levin. Welcome. Notice they never compare his cadence, and all the screaming, to the Third Reich, and Trump is regularly said to sound like he’s creating a Third Reich.

“Notice, ‘[indiscernible],’ screaming at the top of his lungs. Notice his audience isn’t said to be filled with neo-Nazis and reprobates. He’s not riling up racism or anything else.”

Obama: “… those things. And there’s another candidate whose defining principle, the central theme of his candidacy is opposition to all that we’ve done. There’s no such thing as a vote that doesn’t matter. It all matters. And after we have achieved historic turnout in 2008 and 2012, especially in the African American community, I will consider it a personal insult, an insult to my legacy, if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election. …”

Levin: “Now, this is a speech he’s giving to the Congressional Black Caucus dinner. So the vast majority in the auditorium are African Americans. So, it’s a personal insult to his legacy if they don’t vote for Hillary Clinton.

“Nobody ever called him a racist. Nobody ever called him a racist. That’s because the media and the Democrat Party are tied at the hip.

“The president’s right about the Democrat Party. That’s why there’s all the fury in the media. That’s why you see things showing up in the ‘Washington comPost,’ ‘The New York Slimes,’ the ‘Constipated News Network,’ ‘MSLSD.’ You’ve offended the media when you offend the Democrat Party.”
