On Sunday night, White House press secretary Josh Earnest issued a statement condemning the actions of Islamic State Militants after they released a video of the beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians.

This was a liberal country, and the presidency belonged to the liberals. No conservative could ever hope to get elected president, they said.
