Mika Brzezinski seemed to forget that New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is at the center of a physical abuse scandal involving multiple women. She and cohost Joe Scarborough tried to turn the accusations against Schneiderman on President Trump on “Morning Joe” Tuesday.
“White House counselor Kellyanne Conway shared her thoughts about Schneiderman last night tweeting ‘Gotcha’ at an old tweet in which Schneiderman wrote, ‘No one is above the law and I’ll continue to remind President Trump and his administration of that fact every day,'” Brzezinski stated. “Given that tweet, it seems that Conway has given license to remind people that she’s been less eager to comment on another powerful man who said on tape that he kisses and grabs women without consent.”
Scarborough then claimed that Democrats took the higher ground and immediately came forward when members from their party engaged in sexual and physical misconduct.
MSNBC played a tape that surfaced during the 2016 presidential campaign from Access Hollywood.
Schneiderman is currently the cornerstone of a scandal in which multiple women have accused him of physical abuse including slapping women in the face, threatening to kill women if they spoke up, and choking women in bed, among other heinous actions.
The former New York Attorney General submitted his resignation hours after an expose in The New Yorker surfaced. In a mix of hypocritical statements and actions, Schneiderman was at the forefront of the Harvey Weinstein accusations, announcing a lawsuit against the movie mogul’s company while claiming to be a #MeToo champion.
Schneiderman has been a long-time enemy of President Trump. He filed a lawsuit against Trump University, sued to block Trump’s travel ban from taking affect and pledged to defend sanctuary cities in New York.
