Constitutional scholar, best-selling author the leading radio talk show host Mark Levin was enraged on Monday over Donald Trump’s Saturday night GOP Debate comments in which he called George W. Bush a liar over weapons of mass destruction.
Levin was livid at Trump’s claim that Bush “knew” there weren’t any WMD’s but yet still sent America to war following 9/11, comments that sounded much like those of radical leftists Michael Moore or Rosie O’Donnell, or perhaps even former recipients of Trump’s campaign donations, Nancy Pelosi , Harry Reid , Charles Schumer and Anthony Weiner .
On Monday’s show, Levin said that Trump’s comments sounded like something a radical leftist “Code Pink” radical might say, that he sounded like a “kook,” and that the New York real estate tycoon was very close to sounding like a “9/11 truther.”
“The fact that Donald Trump attacked George W. Bush, not because of his liberal domestic policies, not because he expanded Medicare, not because he was weak on the First Amendment, not because he expanded government and increased the debt, was for comprehensive immigration reform, but the fact that he attacked George Bush as a commander-in-chief, not because he disagreed with him, but he attacked him as a ‘liar’ who knew there weren’t weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and said he was responsible for 9/11 and he was responsible for those Twin Towers coming down!
Ladies and Gentlemen, that’s why I posted on my Facebook — this guy sounds like Code Pink…sounds like a radical kook!”
Mark Levin, who has not endorsed in the presidential race and has often had positive things to say about the now unhinged bombastic billionaire and reality TV actor, went on to say that Trump’s remarks sound “pretty damn close” to “9/11 truther crap.”
Ironically, the “kooks” at the radical feminazi group “Code Pink” actually did endorse Trump’s comments, both by retweeting Trump’s words but also giving a more formal approval.

Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin lavished praise on Donald Trump, saying that she “loved” the GOP debate and compared him to socialist Bernie Sanders, except that Trump had even taken the issue further.
The Hill reports:
Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin said in an email to the Huffington Post that she “loved” the debate.
“It felt surreal to hear Donald Trump, the leading Republican contender for President, saying what we at CODEPINK have been shouting to the winds for 14 years now: that Bush and his cronies lied about WMDs, that the Iraq war was catastrophic, and that Bush never ‘kept us safe’ because 9/11 happened on his watch.”
Benjamin said that she also agrees with Trump that the war wasted money that could have been used to rebuild the country’s infrastructure — a theme the group uses in a campaign called “Bring out war dollars home.”
“It was wild,” she said.
Benjamin also told the Huffington Post that Trump has gone farther on the issue than Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. But she added that this might not be the best way to win votes.
