On today’s episode of The Daily Daily Caller Podcast, we discuss the downfall of liberal #Resistance hero and now disgraced former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
Is there anyone out there who believes the revelations of allegations of physical and sexual abuse were not known to anyone else? Schneiderman rolled in the same power and monied circles in New York with many journalists, and no one — not one of them — ever heard anything? All his stints on “Morning Joe,” or at parties in the Hamptons with the East Coast elite, and no one had any idea? Anyone believe that?
Listen to the show:
And why did it take Ronan Farrow to discover it? Schneiderman spent a lot of time around journalists, both socially and professionally, and none thought to ask any questions until the son of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen and/or Frank Sinatra did? Farrow just won a Pulitzer Prize for breaking the Harvey Weinstein story, a story NBC News passed on (think they might’ve had wind of the Schneiderman story and decided to treat it the same way?), and he deserves another one here.
But how does someone so powerful and so personally perverse think he can get away with a public life? And how do they get so perverted in the first place? We have a theory and explain in the show.
In related news, Hollywood is now actively monetizing the #MeToo movement with the announcement of a new series based on the Weinstein and Kevin Spacey scandals. It was only a matter of time before the industry that enabled and empowered dozens of sexual perverts found a way to line their pockets with the end result of what they did. It’s shocking, but it’s not really shocking when you remember what they did and for how long they did it.
Finally, the Los Angeles Times has found the culprit for the explosion of STDs in LA, and it’s not the morons having unprotected sex with people who haven’t been tested for STDs — it’s racism and stigma. You can’t make this stuff up. It’s just surprising that they didn’t toss in global warming, though you can count on the fact that somewhere out there, there is someone feverishly writing a application for a government grant to study just that. It’ll likely be approved, too.
