Josh Earnest, principal deputy White House press secretary, said he was not familiar with the murder of Australian jogger Chris Lane during Wednesdays White House briefing.
When asked by Fox News chief White House correspondent Ed Henry about the Chris Lane case, Earnest responded, Im not familiar with it, actually.
Henry explained the case in brief to Earnest looking for reaction to the Oklahoma shooting death of Lane at the hands of bored African-American teens who thought it would be fun to kill somebody.
This sounds like a pretty tragic case. I wouldnt want to get ahead of the legal process here and its clear that law enforcement officials are involved and are investigating, Earnest said. But any act of violence is something that the president I think himself has spoken pretty eloquently about violence in our communities and he stood at this podium a few weeks ago where he talked about his concern about the impact that violence is having on, in particular, young people in this country.
Sure as heck heard of Trayvon Martin within minutes - inhaled all the MSM lies. The hypocrisy of this regime knows no end.
Well they are now — ask them again in 10 minutes
If Big Media maintains the same crap level of journalism they displayed in the Zimmerman case, this incident will be be reported by CNN, NY Slimes, NBC, et al, as “a car pulled up behind Christopher Lane, and a confrontation ensued”.
They don’t know anything that doesn’t happen on the back 9 or in the Lincoln Bedroom.
Mr. Obama : “If I had triplet sons, they’d look like . . . “
Trayvon was hardly cold when the WH chimed in, Chris Lane however, doesn’t fit their racial template. You would also think that this senseless shooting would fan the flames of Obama’s call for more gun regulation, but again nothing because the shooting doesn’t fit their racial agenda.
The White House Clown contingent is “unaware” of just about everything in the outside world except for the latest Rolling Stone, bimbo and bimboy “actors”, and the latest set of golf clubs.
BS! Another day another lie from the regime.
You mean like you did with the Martin case?
Earnest is liar, it seems to me.
Unless, he’s the guy they keep locked in a closet and is only let out when there are tough questions to be answered.
Had the victim been black and the 3 shooters been white you bet your butt Obama would have already been talking about it for the past few days. He would’ve shed a fake tear or two about his “son” being shot in cold blood.
I can’t stand the hipocracy of this administration!
The White House is only “Familiar” with cases that they can use to promote their radical agenda..since the victim was white..oh excuse me, I forgot, a “White Australian” and the thugs who killed him were black(Waiting for photos of the thugs as 2 year olds in diapers) Obama has nothing to say..doesn’t fit into his agenda
The Importance of being Earnest.
At least this is what I assume my liberal family members argument would be after hearing their defense of St. Trayvon.
How incredibly insensitive and racist of them. They sure as heck know about it. They read Drudge, no doubt.
We only get ahead of the legal process in selected cases
I say, dear boy. Have you heard of this ghastly murder?
No not a word, old man, do tell.
Josh Earnest=LARGE. STEAMING. PILE.
