The Oklahoma Governor was interviewed by Fox News Sunday saying she had spent time on campus at East Central State where Lane played baseball.
She added it would “be nice” if the president would do the same.
Fox host Chris Wallace asked Fallin “what do you make of the silence of people like Al Sharpton, and, quite frankly, the silence of the president?”
Fallin paused, then said “I don’t know what to think about that." She continued “it would be nice if our nation were to certainly express their condolences.”
Wallace pointed out President Obama was quick to talk about Trayvon Martin after his death and asked Fallin "do you think the president should speak out on this as well?"
After a moment of thought Fallin responded “I think it would be a nice gesture for him to do that.”
Wallace also reminded Fallin that 48 hours after the story broke White House Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest was asked for a response to the story.
Earnest’s response was “I’m not familiar with that actually.”
Fallin said she would be calling the family when “time differences allow.”
