On his nationally syndicated radio talk show, “The Mark Levin Show,” on Monday night, host Mark Levin said the media in the United States “are part of the mob that wants to take down a constitutionally-elected president,” referring to U.S. President Donald J. Trump.

“[D]o you believe that these so-called reporters and anchors and hosts – do you believe that they have the country’s best interests at heart, the community, as they call it, best interests at heart?” Mark Levin asked his audience. “I don’t. I don’t believe they do at all. I believe they drive an agenda. I believe they are progressive ideologues, and I believe they are mouthpieces for the Democrat Party. Now, every now and then, they’ll ask some tough questions of a Democrat, just to prove their chops. But we know what they are. They’re part of the mob that wants to take down a constitutionally-elected president.”

 

Mark Levin’s remarks came after members of the media debated whether or not to air President Trump’s address on border security, which is set to take place Tuesday night at 9:00 p.m.

Below is a transcript of Levin’s remarks from his show on Monday:

“President wants to give a speech to explain why he wants to spend what is a measly $5.7 billion, out of over $4 trillion, to help secure the wall, and the networks have to debate whether they’re going to give him an opportunity to speak – our president, the president of the United States.

“And if they do, of course, they have to give Nancy Pelosi the opportunity to respond. Why? She’s one of 435 members of the House. She’s not the president. She’s elected speaker by a majority of the House members, not even by all of them. She’s not on the same footing as the president.

“So, they have to debate whether or not to allow the president, who is the executive branch under Article II, who is responsible for securing this nation, as commander in chief – the cabinet, that is responsible, the Department, Department of Homeland Security reports to him. He wants to speak to the American people, and Nancy Pelosi, who is just a political ideologue and a kook, wants to spew her talking points about morality – a woman who supports Planned Parenthood, as they harvest baby organs, a woman that supports partial-birth abortion, abortion at any time, anywhere, any place – she wants to discuss morality. That’s a joke. She is – by the media, by the networks – placed on a par with the president of the United States. And so, this is the, the craziness of what’s taking place in this country.

“And, do you believe, seriously, do you believe that these so-called reporters and anchors and hosts – do you believe that they have the country’s best interests at heart, the community, as they call it, best interests at heart? I don’t. I don’t believe they do at all. I believe they drive an agenda. I believe they are progressive ideologues, and I believe they are mouthpieces for the Democrat Party. Now, every now and then, they’ll ask some tough questions of a Democrat, just to prove their chops. But we know what they are. They’re part of the mob that wants to take down a constitutionally-elected president. They don’t provide us with any substance. They don’t provide us with any context when it comes up to these issues. I can’t even stand listening to the network news that comes through my, you know, my station that I have to listen to this, my headphones. It’s as if they’re the press for Nancy Pelosi.

“What this president is proposing is not radical in the least. It’s what Clinton supported; it’s what Reagan supported; it’s what Obama used to support; it’s what Schumer used to support; it’s what Pelosi used to support; it’s what over 300 House members used to support; the Senate supported by voice vote, overwhelmingly. He’s not asking you for a lot of money. But they come up with every excuse conceivable, and they twist the facts and they twist the arguments.”
