Yamiche Alcindor: Democrats Have a Increased Commonplace on Intercourse Harassment Than Trump’s GOP

PBS White Home correspondent and MSNBC contributor Yamiche Alcindor joined Andrea Mitchell Reviews on Wednesday to debate the fallout of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s sexual harassment and abuse scandal. For Alcindor one of many takeaways is that, not like Republicans, Democrats don’t have any tolerance for such conduct.

After speaking in regards to the “cringe” slideshow presentation Cuomo gave in an try and defend himself — that Cuomo tried to align himself with Obama and Biden — Alcindor described Cuomo as a person who “is somebody who’s prepared for a struggle.”

Repeating that Cuomo has no intention of resigning, she declared: 

He’s somebody who thinks he can maintain on and after I’m speaking to individuals, Democrats, they’re additionally pointing to individuals like former President Trump who held on after dozens and dozens of ladies accused him of sexual harassment, of abuse and rape he was in a position to proceed to nonetheless be president and now has loads of energy in the Republican Occasion, that is in some methods what Andrew Cuomo is attempting to hold on to energy and act a bit Trumpian right here.

In keeping with Alcindor, the analogy falls half as a result of, “Democrats do not appear to have the identical urge for food for this type of conduct that the GOP has.” 

Mitchell agreed, “Yeah, 21 ladies and in addition holding on after the Entry Hollywood tape was revealed when he was first operating for workplace. So that’s the playbook to only outlast the outrage, if he can.”

For the media, it is as if Invoice Clinton and his impeachment by no means existed. Liberal hero Sen. Ted Kennedy, “the lion of the Senate,” left a woman to drown after a automobile accident, and, with fellow liberal Sen. Chris Dodd, allegedly sexually assaulted a girl within the notorious 1985 “waitress sandwich.”

So no, Democrats should not have the ethical excessive floor and it’s straightforward for them to say Cuomo ought to resign after they know that the blue state governor will likely be substitute by one other Democrat.

He’s somebody who thinks he can maintain on, and after I’m speaking to individuals, Democrats, they’re additionally pointing to individuals like former President Trump who held on after dozens and dozens of ladies accused him of sexual harassment, of abuse and rape he was in a position to proceed to nonetheless be president and now has loads of energy in the Republican Occasion, that is in some methods what Andrew Cuomo is attempting to hold on to energy and act a bit Trumpian right here, however Democrats do not appear to have the identical urge for food for this type of conduct that the GOP has
