Mark Levin Slams Reid Over Marines Insult: ‘Lowest of the Low-Lives’
Conservative radio host Mark Levin has slammed Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) for implying on Tuesday that the deaths of seven U.S. Marines in a training accident in Nevada was the result of budget cuts in the sequester that began on March 1.
“Harry Reid, you’re the lowest of the low-lives, you know that? You really are at the bottom of the sewer, all the time on every issue….We deserve better than this man. He is a vicious stupid man,” Levin said on Tuesday.
In a statement on the Senate floor on Tuesday, Reid had implied that the sequester was to blame for the deaths, which were caused by a mortar explosion: “These men and women, our Marines were training there in Hawthorne. And with this sequester, it’s going to cut back this stuff. I just hope everyone understands the sacrifices made by our military.”
