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.”
Florida teacher removed after bizarre rant about students not standing for the pledge
Students were faced with a white-board rant in a classroom attacking anyone not standing up for the Pledge of Allegiance.
The moment went viral locally on Thursday after students posted Daniel Goodman‘s “inappropriate” message to students at First Coast High School in Duval County, Florida, The Atlanta Black Star reported.
“THINK: We had about a half million Americans die in our Civil War, which was largely to get rid of slavery. There are no longer separate water fountains and bathrooms in Jacksonville for ‘white’ and ‘colored,’ as Mr. Goodman remembers from the 1960?s. We had an amendment to the U.S. Constitution allowing women the right to vote. We have had a Black president. The superintendent of Duval Schools is a Black woman. Mr. Fluent, our principal, replaced a Black man. Mr. Simmons, who now is a DC PS admninistrator.”
Angry Minnesota farmer bashes ‘insulting’ Trump comments that ‘we’re great patriots’ during his trade war
President Donald Trump has insulted at least one Minnesota farmer by his claim that farmers are "great patriots" who want him to continue his trade fight against China.
"This wound is self-inflicted, by our president," said Gary Wertish, who is the Minnesota Farm Bureau president. "We definitely agreed with it in the beginning. But it doesn’t appear that there’s a plan B. Some of the callous comments come, especially from the president, you know, that farmers are 'winning,' we’re 'great patriots,' that’s very insulting. That’s coming from someone who never has faced the challenges of a family farmer. I go into the bank and tell the lender I can’t make the payment because we lost our market? The banker is going to tell me you don’t have to make your payment because you’re a patriot."
MSNBC pundit nails Trump for only attacking Black voices on Fox News
Democratic strategist Joel Payne called out President Donald Trump Sunday for his attacks on Fox News when he was leaving New Jersey.
Before Trump landed in Marine One at Morristown, New Jersey, he tweeted an attack on Juan Williams, the only Black pundit on the Fox News show "The Five."
Trump briefly addressed Williams, before he told members of the press that he found it appalling Fox News hired a friend of Hillary Clinton's, whose name he couldn't even remember.
