“It would be nice if our nation were to certainly express their condolences.”

Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin said on Sunday she thinks it would be a "nice gesture" for President Obama to speak out about the tragic murder of Australian student Chris Lane.

“What do you make of the silence of people like Al Sharpton, and, quite frankly, the silence of the president?” Chris Wallace, host of Fox News Sunday, asked Fallin.

“I don’t know what to think about that,” Fallin replied. “It would be nice if our nation were to certainly express their condolences.”

Wallace, pressed Fallin again, highlighting how the president vocally spoke out about the Trayvon Martin shooting.

“I think it would be a nice gesture for him to do that, especially since the country of Australia has expressed their sentiments,” Fallin responded.
