MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski ripped White House adviser Kellyanne Conway for gloating over the resignation of a New York Democrat over domestic abuse accusations — as she continues to serve President Donald Trump.
Eric Schneiderman abruptly resigned Monday evening after The New Yorker reported that four women had accused him of physical violence — and Conway celebrated the political downfall of a prominent Trump enemy.

“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,” Brzezinski said.
The “Morning Joe” producers rolled the infamous “Access Hollywood” recording that showed Trump boasting about getting away with sexual assault because he was famous, and Scarborough called out Conway and other Trump apologists as hypocrites.
“Democrats immediately stepped forward and called on Eric Schneiderman to resign,” Scarborough said, “yet the party that claims it’s the party of family values, the party of Mike Pence, that surrounds itself with preachers that say that Donald Trump prays before meetings, the party that has Donald Trump going out in the Rose Garden talking about National Prayer Day soon after he admit to one lurid affair after another, after lying about them, this is, I guess, the party of Donald Trump and the party of Mike Pence.”
“There’s quite a contrast,” he continued. “I mean, let’s be honest, let’s be blunt. It was the Democratic Party in the 1990s that enabled Bill Clinton and would say behind the scenes that, yes, they knew Bill Clinton abused women and treated them terribly, but they still circled the wagons for him.”
“At least the Democratic Party has figured it out now, but the Republicans — wow, unbelievable,” Scarborough added. “Anybody that opens their mouth against Eric Schneiderman has it coming straight back at them about the man they defend day in and day out.”
Lindsey Graham shoves Trump toward war: ‘Anyone would believe we’re one step closer’
President Donald Trump seemed to try and deescalate the situation between Iran and the U.S. in wake of the former shooting down an American drone. But Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) seems to be shoving the president toward war.
"I think anybody would believe that we’re one step closer" [to war], Graham told the press in the hallways of Congress Thursday. "They shot down an American asset, well within international waters -- trying to assess the situation. What are you supposed to do?"
Fireworks erupt at latest Mueller hearing as chairman Jerry Nadler schools GOP’s Jim Jordan
A feisty Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) schooled Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) for blatantly misstating facts about the investigation into potential coordination between the Trump campaign and the Russian government during the 2016 presidential election.
After Jordan went on a lengthy diatribe against the FBI for supposedly relying on the Steele dossier to launch an investigation against the Trump campaign, Nadler jumped in to formally correct the record.
"It is well established that the investigation was not predicated on the Steele dossier, but rather on the observation of..." Nadler began.
Trump emphatically explains that unmanned drones don’t have people in them as he rambles about Iran’s big ‘mistake’
During a joint press availability with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, President Donald Trump opened up about the drone that was shot down by Iran.
According to Trump, drones are unmanned, a fact he felt was important to convey to those who haven't seen a Jason Bourne film or a spy thriller.
"Iran made a big mistake," Trump said. "This drone was in international waters clearly. We have it all documented. It’s documented scientifically, not just words. They made a big mistake."
He also said that he doesn't believe the decision to shoot the drone down likely came from the Iranian government in Tehran.
