Megyn Kelly: Why Is Obama Silent About Murder of Kate Steinle?
Chelsea Scism / July 10, 2015
In the wake of 32-year-old Kate Steinle’s murder by an illegal immigrant in San Francisco, the Obama administration has remained silent, Fox News host Megyn Kelly pointed out.
“Surrounded by friends and family, it does not appear at this hour that anyone from the Obama administration was in attendance,” Kelly said of Steinle’s funeral services that were held Thursday evening.
“Kate’s murder has since exploded into a national debate on illegal immigrants, sanctuary cities, and crime, with the White House ducking this issue of its own acquiescence in these cities’ decision to flout the federal immigration laws which were duly enacted,” Kelly said.
Kelly pointed out that the absence of any comment on the part of the administration is unique in comparison to Obama’s reactions to other recent murders around the country. She continued:
A stark contrast to what we saw after Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, Missouri, a man we now know was attacking a police officer at the time of his death. His funeral saw three Obama officials in attendance, his death drew comments from President Obama personally, and the administration also sent in the DOJ [Department of Justice] and 40 FBI agents, dispatched to Missouri after Michael Brown was killed.
“Then there was Freddie Gray in Baltimore, a repeat drug offender who was killed in police custody. Here again, his funeral was attended by three Obama administration officials,” Kelly highlighted. “And again, the president spoke personally to Freddy Gray’s death, and again sent the DOJ in to investigate.”
“When Trayvon Martin was killed in Florida, the president spoke to his death, which was later ruled to be in self-defense.”
“But Kate Steinle?” Kelly asked.
“Nothing. No comments, no swarm of FBI agents, no DOJ investigation. Nothing. Why?”
