FNC talker to Obama: Why mum on murder by illegal?
'Apparently,' Kate Seinle isn't deemed worthy' for remarks

Fox News’ Megyn Kelly spent a few minutes on her nationally broadcast
“The Kelly File” show mulling the White House’s silence on the shooting
murder of San Franciscan Kate Steinle, who was gunned down in broad
daylight by an illegal immigrant who confessed to the deed then pleaded
guilty at his arraignment.
Kelly especially wondered about the silence from President Obama,
pointing to his considerable hands-on involvement with the Michael Brown
shooting in Missouri and the Freddie Gray case in Baltimore.
Her comments: “When asked repeatedly this week to speak to this case,
White House spokesman Josh Earnest declined to weigh in, other than to
refer folk to the Department of Homeland Security. A stark contrast to
what we saw after Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, a man we now
know was attacking a police officer at the time of his death.”
Kelly reminded how Obama dispatched three of his administration’s officials to Brown’s funeral.
“[Brown's] death drew comments from President Obama personally and
the administration sent in the [Department of Justice] and 40 FBI agents
… to Missouri after Michael Brown was killed. Where is the swarm of
agents in San Francisco?”
Kelly then turned to the White House’s similar personal involvement in Gray’s death in Baltimore.
“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, and again the president spoke
personally to Freddie Gray’s death, and again sent the DoJ in to
investigate,” she said.
And one more: Trayvon Martin, who was shot to death by George Zimmerman in Florida.
“When Trayvon Martin was killed in Florida, the president spoke to
his death which as later ruled to be in self-defense,” she said.
And then her main point: “But Kate Steinle?”
Nothing but silence, Kelly noted.
Speaking to liberal talk-show host Richard Fowler, Kelly then said,
Mediaite reported: “Give an answer. You can’t. There’s no excuse for it.
[Obama] picks and chooses the victims he wants to highlight. And
apparently, this victim wasn’t deemed worthy.”
The man facing murder charges in Steinle’s death, 45-year-old Juan
Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, had a felony record with five prior
deportations back to Mexico.
