Mark Levin Rips Trump Defenders for Russia ‘Joke’ Excuse: You Think This Is Funny?!

mark levinConservative radio host Mark Levin last night went after Donald Trump and his “Rockettes” in the “pseudo-conservative” media for attempting to downplay his invitation for Russia to track down Hillary Clinton‘s emails.

He pointed to Newt Gingrich and others calling it a joke, crying, “Do you think it’s a joke? Do you think it’s funny? Do you think it has consequences?”

What concerned Levin is that this may not be the kind of joke that “should be made by a presidential candidate,” especially when Vladimir Putin is almost definitely listening to Trump’s “lounge act.”

He said Putin clearly doesn’t think Trump will be tough to deal with, especially now that––as Levin put it––foreign agents have concluded from Trump’s remarks that “we can hack away to our heart’s desire.”

He even went so far as to compare Trump’s defenders to President Obama by saying they’re just as “blind” as he is on the threat Russia poses.

Levin’s words put him at odds with Rush Limbaugh, who said it was a joke, and Sean Hannity (who has frequently referred to Levin as “The Great One”), who said yesterday the media is “purposefully distorting this whole thing.”
